Flaptacks are enemies in Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are obese, blue birds with a yellow, large spike on their heads. When they spot Mario or Luigi, they will float over them for a while. After a few seconds, it tries to stab Mario or Luigi with its spike on its head. If it misses it will be stuck in the ground (similar to if you dodged the attack of an Auroros in Super Smash Bros. Brawl) defenseless. Flaptacks can also destroy Cloud Mario's or Cloud Luigi's clouds with their spike. Flaptacks appear in early galaxies such as the Fluffy Bluff Galaxy and Cloudy Court Galaxy, but also appear in later ones such as the Flash Black Galaxy.
