Fawfulcopters are UFO-like enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. They resemble Fawful, and they have a top section with Fawful eyes and a saucer bottom.

Fawful also communicates with Bowser via Fawfulcopter at various points in the game, via a mouth that comes out of the bottom on a rod. As such, Fawfulcopters often appear during cutscenes when Bowser is being controlled. They also appear in Princess Peach's Castle, and hold keys which open certain doors in the castle.

In battle, Bowser can inhale them, and Mario and Luigi can fight them. In lieu of an attack, they flash a red light, which summons more enemies when fighting with Bowser; if inhaled, the alarm is effectively disabled. The Fawfulcopter does not have any attacks but it can escape Bowser's body if Mario and Luigi don't destroy it in two turns.

Later on in the game when Bowser reaches Peach's Castle, he has to chase three Fawfulcopters each holding a key that unlocks a room in the castle. Once Bowser catches one, it flees and gives up the key.

Fawfulcopters reappear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, also appearing as enemies in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode.[1]
