Tiptron is a robotic version of Tippi, a partner of Mario in the game Super Paper Mario. At the end of the game, Count Bleck and Tippi marry each other to stop The Void and the player can no longer use Tippi. However, it is revealed that Francis made Tiptron; and for 999 coins, he'll sell it to Mario, allowing the player to use Tippi's abilities again. It is unknown how he learned Tippi's name, for while she was in his possession he called her "Francine", however it is possible he learned it when Peach used Tippi's name when demanding he hand her over.
Tiptron is referred to as a girl (despite being a robot), and is made to look like Tippi. The robot thinks "she" is Tippi, and speaks exactly like her, albeit in a more electronic looking speech box, similar to TEC-XX from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It admits to not being Tippi when it points to the player, it thanks the gamer for saving the world, ended by an uncertain "At least, that's what I think she'd say...", referring to Tippi.
Catch Card Type: Uncommon
Catch Card Description: Francis made this 1:1-scale robotic version of Tippi. It's the ultimate rare collectible.
- Before the game's initial release, there were screenshots of Nastasia and Tiptron floating over her, suggesting that she was Nastasia's personal Pixl, but in the game they don't encounter at all.
- Examining Francis will make Tiptron have an existential crisis, due to her being an "exact replica" of Tippi.
