The Flipper is an accessory that allows a player to swim in liquid. With the Flipper equipped in an accessory slot, the player can swim upwards in Water, Lava, or Honey, by holding or pressing Jump repeatedly — essentially allowing unlimited multi-jumps while within liquid. It can be found in Water Chests and Ocean/Seaside Crates.
