Flaptors are enemies that are encountered in the Wii U, Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS game, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. They are common enemies which have a similar attack pattern to Flaptacks in that whenever the player is under them, they slam into the ground. Groups of Flaptors will often fly together, and whenever the player is under one of them, they will all slam the ground. They can be used to defeat enemies, notably Mud Troopers in Fright Train Flight, and break Brick Blocks and ? Blocks.

If the player holds them in place for a few seconds on the GamePad, they will release a coin.
