Spikes are uncommon enemies that appear throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series.


Spikes are green humanoid lizard-like creatures with black white-rimmed shells on their backs and bright blue puffs of hair on their heads. They have large bright pink lips under their small white eyes.

In certain levels of Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, spikes appear in different colors. Ironworks Forge in Koopa Core shows them with red bodies, orange-yellow hair, and orange lips. Orange Prairie in Special World shows them with orange bodies, dark blue hair, and orange-y lips.


Spikes stand in one place, throwing Spiked Balls in the player's direction at intervals. Before each throw, they will hold the Spiked Ball above their heads, disallowing the player to jump on them.

Spikes can be defeated by fireballs from a Fire Flower, iceballs from an Ice Flower or Penguin Suit, hammers from a Hammer Suit, and Super Stars.
