He has four unique settings: Follow Touch/Mouse, Pursuit, Patrol, and Lock in Place. He can be equipped to Finn, Jake, Juggernaut Max, Max, Dungeon Finn, and Commander Cassie. He costs $840 to place.

  • Tiny Manticore is one of the only flying allies in the game, the other being Ghost Princess.
    • However, if he or Ghost Princess is brought into a game before bringing in Marceline or Hunter Marceline (both of which are flying heroes in the game) for the first time, the flying characters introduction will not show.
  • There is a bug where Tiny Manticore's boomerangs cannot pop Purple Bloons despite the fact that the boomerangs are Sharp Sharp Type (pops Black, White, Purple). This may be because his final "Flamethrower" upgrade is considered a Fire Fire Type (pops Black, White, Lead, Frozen) attack.
  • There is a bug that causes various projectiles, road items, and pickups to rotate based on the rotation of Tiny Manticore. This can cause projectiles to veer off course. (Needs further testing)
