“Whoa! You defeated that monster of a dragon? Really? Crazy. That's crazy.” —Dashell, Super Paper Mario

Dashell is one of the optional Pixls that can be earned by sucsessfully completing the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. You need to beat Wracktail to get him. His outlook on battles is kind of like Luigi's used to be: when the going gets tough, the tough run away. "Yup. Fleeing. It works." You can get Dashell as soon as you have Boomer.

Using Dashell

Press 1 to run faster. This is very useful for getting around in 3-D. When you dash with him, he flashes red.
