The Flipbug is an enemy that is found in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are small, winged creatures that will appear in mainly Honeyhive Galaxy and Gold Leaf Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy, and the Yoshi Star Galaxy, Puzzle Plank Galaxy, and Honeyhop Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2. When the player gets close to a Flipbug, they will make an attempt to try and flee but end up falling onto its back in fear, making it easy to attack. If the player approaches them as Bee Mario, they will unfold their wings and slowly hover after him. If they touch Mario while he is Bee Mario, then he will take damage and the Bee Suit will disappear.
