A Dark Bristle is a spiky monster made of hard, black stone. They are the stronger relatives of the original Bristle and have more health to boot. Dark Bristles are located in the Pit of 100 Trials on floors 81-89 and are very hard to defeat. Unless Mario has a very strong item or a Spike Shield badge, defeating a Dark Bristle is nearly impossible. They are resistant to hammer attacks. They are also one of the toughest enemies in Paper Mario.
