Francis is an enemy boss in the Wii video game Super Paper Mario. In the game, he is a nerdy chameleon who kidnaps Tippi. Once he does, Mario and his team must travel to his fortress and defeat him. Peach is required to access his room and converse with him via a choose-the-response program, which eventually annoys Peach. He also appears at Castle Bleck, but only if the character chooses so when Mimi (disguised as Merlee) asks. He is a techno geek and refers to everything he likes as "High-technicaaaaal". He especially likes hot babes, which renders Peach the only character capable of accessing his room.
After then end of the game, if the player returns to Fort Francis, they will be able to buy Tiptron from him.
