Tinga, Super Paper Mario

Tinga is the innkeeper from Flipside in Super Paper Mario. As said in Tippi's/Tiptron's tattle, she is a hard worker and never lacks a smile on her face, even when The Void is about to engulf all worlds. Her inn used to be her family's mansion, but she has remodeled it into an inn ever since she inherited it. Tinga lets the heroes stay for only five coins a night. Afterwards, when the heroes wake up, their HP is restored to full. Tinga's Flopside counterpart is Inga.
