Flippers[1][2] are Pinball Parts controlled by the player that appear in Pinball, VS. Pinball, and Mario Pinball Land.


Pinball / VS. Pinball[edit]

The flippers from Pinball.

In Pinball and VS. Pinball, flippers are used in scene A and scene B to bounce the ball. The player can operate the left flipper with the +Control Pad Control Pad and the right flipper with the A Button and B Button buttons. The flippers turn invisible after the player earns 100,000 points and become visible again after the player earns 150,000 points.

Mario Pinball Land[edit]

The flippers from Mario Pinball Land.

Flippers reappear in Mario Pinball Land, where they are used to bounce Mario around each board. The player can press L Button or the left button on the +Control Pad Directional Pad to control the left flipper, and R Button or A Button to control the right flipper. Like with a regular pinball, Mario's trajectory changes depending on where and how hard the flippers hit him.
