Not to be confused with the gear item, the Flipper Floppers.

The Flipper-Floppers are Boss Salmonids that appear in Salmon Run Next Wave in Splatoon 3.

Description

Flipper-Floppers attack by first shooting a ring of ink towards the player, which simply lands on the ground. When the ring lands, the encircled area becomes covered in enemy ink. After a short delay the Flipper-Flopper will belly-flop onto the circled area, splatting any player who cannot escape in time. However, if the circled area is covered in player ink before the belly flop, the Flipper-Flopper's armor will break upon hitting the ground and it flops helplessly. It can then be quickly splatted in this state. If not splatted after losing its armor, the armor will presumably not return.

The whole circled area will be filled by the players' ink immediately if a certain amount of the area is inked with players' ink, similar to Splat Zones.

Quotes

Another new creature, known as a "Flipper-Flopper," has been observed creating a ring of ink before diving magnificently into said ring. While beautiful, this is a dangerous attack! Inklings will need to cooperate to prevent Flipper-Floppers from flipping and/or flopping.
