Fracktail(JP) is a computer dragon that appears in Super Paper Mario as the first boss. Fracktail is fought in the Yold Ruins in Chapter 1. Dimentio, a jester looking fellow and one of Count Bleck's minions, messes up Fracktail. After Dimentio leaves Fracktail starts to attack Mario. To damage Fracktail, Mario must wait for him to charge at him and Flip into 3D, and then leap onto his back. Mario must then use Thoreau to throw the Frackles that appear on his back at the yellow antenna on his head. After a certain amount of hits, Fracktail will attempt to drop Mario back to the ground ground by performing an aerial flip, but it is possible to jump back onto him as he flies in from the front if the player's timing is right. The antenna must be damaged a total of nine times before Fracktail is defeated. After being defeated Fracktail falls apart and reveals the door to the second Pure Heart. There is a prototype of Fracktail called Wracktail, who is located in Flipside's Pit of 100 Trials.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy description

A giant, red, robotic dragon built to be the protector of a Pure Heart. Fracktail has a long body with little arms and wings, and he shoots out of the ground into the air to attack Mario. The only way to beat him is to first jump on his back. You can then pick up the Frackles on his back and score damage by throwing them at his weak point--the yellow antenna orb.
