Spiky Topmen are rare enemies which appear in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are only found in Electron Tower and Spintop Nebula.


Spiky Topmen are red metallic top-like creatures with black undersides protruding drills on which they balance and three spinning yellow arms with spherical hands. They have two black beady eyes, white spikes on their heads, and several yellow streaks over their arms.


Spiky Topmen do not move, but stomping their head only damages their assailant. Defeating them requires using an Ice Flower and then freezing them, and then ground pounding the ice block they are trapped in before they break free. Yet another way is to freeze one of their allies and throw it at them.
