Flipstings are scorpion-like enemies from Wario Land: Shake It!. Because of their stinger tail, Wario cannot jump on them or Dash Attack them from the front. With an Earthshake Punch, Wario can put these enemies into their shells, making them safe to attack or throw at other nearby enemies. A red variant of them exists that can cling to ceilings and pierces the ceiling with its tail to strike the floor above it.
