Tiptron is a character whose first (and only) appearance was in Super Paper Mario. She is a robotic replica of Tippi, created by Francis. In order to make the money that he needed to buy the first, limited edition issue of Starship X-Naut, Francis sold Tiptron to Princess Peach for a total of 999 coins.
Tiptron's first appearance was the fourth chapter alongside Francis, who had recently upgraded her into Tiptron MKII. In this very same chapter, Tiptron, along with Princess Peach, Princess Daisy, and many other Mushroom Castle residents ended up getting captured during Bowser and the Koopa Troop's invasion. With Princess Peach having succumbed to the effects of a love potion that Bowser used on her, Tiptron, along with Daisy, have both taken it upon themselves to escape their imprisonment, sneak around the castle, and find the antidote to change Peach back to her former self. Additionally, Daisy and Tiptron are also trying to gather the evidence that they need to prove to the Koopa Troop that they're merely being used as pawns in Dimentia and Dimention's universal destruction scheme.
