History[edit]

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

Fliprus
A Fliprus as it appears in-game

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 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. When they throw their snowballs, they will usually jump. Their snowballs will melt when they fall into the water and they can knock out enemies in their paths.

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

Mario Party 10[edit]
