History[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe[edit]

Flipruses first appear in New Super Mario Bros. U and its Nintendo Switch port where they create snowballs and launch them at the players. They only appear in the secret level Fliprus Lake and World Coin-7. They behave similarly to Snow Spikes, but they launch their snowballs up much higher, their snowballs do not get bigger, and their snowballs can be jumped on without taking damage.

In New Super Luigi U, they appear as more common enemies. They appear in the levels Fliprus Floes and Hammerswing Hangout.

Mario Party 10[edit]

Flipruses reappear in Mario Party 10 in Ice Slide, You Slide as an obstacle needing to be slid under.
