Card description
This bot defends Wracktail from foreign invaders. It was made long ago, so its warranty has expired.
That's a Wrackle. These little defense bots protect Wracktail's body... Max HP is 10. Attack is 10. They will attack any intruder they find on their master... They must've been made by the Ancients, just like Wracktail...

Wrackles on Wracktail's back

Wrackles are the robotic defenders of the dragon god Wracktail, the boss of the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in Super Paper Mario. They are identical to the Frackles encountered alongside Fracktail in the Yold Ruins, though they are colored purple, are much stronger and unlike the Frackles also have the ability to shoot energy blasts at Mario and co. Touching the energy blasts does ten damage but touching the Wrackle itself deals five damage. Like Frackles, Wrackles are shown to be 3D if Mario flips while on Wracktail's back.

Like Fracktail, the intended way to defeat Wracktail is to use Thoreau to pick up the Wrackles on his back and throw them at the dragon's antenna to damage it. However, if the player has Luigi in their party during the battle, a much easier way is to use his super jump to attack the antenna instead. The defeat of Wracktail leads to the Wrackles' destruction alongside their master.
