|Tattle||That's a Spiny. Basically a spike-covered Koopa. Ugh! Looks painful! Max HP is 3, Attack is 3, and Defense is 3. These things have such high Defense that you can't even hurt them when they roll up. So, when they go back to normal, do all the damage you can, and do it quickly! If you flip them over, their Defense drops to 0. THAT'S the time to take them out. Jumping on them is just plain stupid, so try using a POW Block or some other item.|

Spinies are creatures that look like a cross between a Koopa Troopa and a Buzzy Beetle. They have spiky shells and can't be jumped on without taking damage. Lakitus summon them for backup and throw their shells at Mario to attack. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they can curl themselves into a ball, making them invincible. They have a very high defense. They can be found in the Dotwood Tree in Super Paper Mario. In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, they are first found on Whammino Mountain, and are thrown by a Lakitu. In battle, they only charge at Mario. In Paper Mario: Color Splash, they act pretty much the same way as they did in the first game, with the exception of being vulnerable to POW Blocks. They first appear in the level Daffodil Peak and Sunglow Ridge. Soon after that, they appear in swarms at Kiwano Temple.
