Sir Swoop is a Swooper that fights at the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door[edit]

In the Glitz Pit, he is a member of the Wings of Night. After a few rounds he will come into the Minor League room and Mario can talk to him. Sir Swoop enters the Glitz Pit shortly after King K vanishes. He gets the exact same introduction from Jolene as Mario did (even including button prompts, such as "Press A"); however, his instructions from Grubba are comical: to "do a triple flip and meow".

Sir Swoop resides in the Minor League locker room for the rest of the chapter. After the Chapter has been completed, Sir Swoop will vanish because of King K returning to the roster. In the Switch remake, Sir Swoop appears during the Glitzville sequence when the Crystal Stars return to where they were found to get Mario's friends to cheer him on during the battle with the Shadow Queen.

Tattle That's a Swooper. I bet they call it that 'cause of the way it swoops around. Wow! That's some AWESOME naming work. Seriously! It's pure naming genius!!! So, anyway... Max HP is 6, Attack is 3, and Defense is 0. Says here it hangs from the ceiling. If you can just damage it, it oughta drop off the ceiling. And then you can whack it!
