The Bald Cleft is an enemy that appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario. Bald Clefts are like regular Clefts, but without the spikes on their heads. They have high defense and power along with being impervious to fire. They tend to attack by charging into the player.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Edit

Bald Clefts make their only appearance in The Thousand-Year Door during Chapter 1, where they are found in the Shhwonk Fortress. They have high defense, so it is recommended that the player use a POW Block to flip them over.

Super Paper Mario Edit

Bald Clefts make an appearance in Super Paper Mario as fairly weak enemies encountered early on. Bald Clefts attack as they did in the previous game, but instead outside of battle on a 2D plain. They are first found in the Yold Desert. Their HP and attack are both 2 with a defense of 2. The best way to fight them this early is to throw them into other enemies using Thoreau. Later on in the game, they are found in rooms 13, 34, and 71 of the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials.

Tattles Edit

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door: That's a Bald Cleft. Basically, a rock monster with a swarthy-looking face. Uh... This is kind of mean, but bald guys... really just don't do it for me. Max HP is 2, Attack is 1, and Defense is 2. Yeah. This guy is rock solid. Fire doesn't even hurt it. It might be best to attack with, say... a POW Block.

Super Paper Mario: That's a Bald Cleft. You might confuse this rock-hard foe with a rock...Max HP is 2, Attack is 1, Defense is 2. Flames won't scorch this foe...Set off an explosion near it to flip it over. Then it'll be vulnerable to attack...
