Flip Panel (platform)
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Flip Panels are a type of object appearing throughout several platformer games.
Super Mario 3D Land
Flip Panels make their debut in Super Mario 3D Land. When the green "!" switch is pressed, they create several connected green panels with faces that help Mario cross large gaps or hazardous elements, similar to Snake Blocks. After a certain time, these panels will turn dark green, open their mouths, and start to disappear. When all panels disappear, the player can step on the "!" switch to create the Flip Panels again.
Flip Panels appear in World 2-1, World 2-2, World 4-5, Special 2-5, Special 6-3 and Special 8-. In Special 8-Crown, the Flip Panels are not used as platforms but rather to spell out a message to the player reading, "THANK YOU!!"
Mario Party: Island Tour
Super Smash Bros. series
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Flip Panels reappear in all three releases of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, having the same function that they do in Super Mario 3D Land. The green "!" button that produces the panels now turns orange if the player presses it. Flip Panels appear in Flip Panel Footpath, Secret of the Golden Realm, Mummy-Me on Flip Panel Footpath, and Flip Panel Panic.
