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.

Bald Clefts are a type of Cleft without spikes on their heads introduced in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They can be found on pedestals in Shhwonk Fortress, during Chapter 1, and attack by charging at Mario and his partners. After that, there is no way to refight this enemy.

Card Description
This hardheaded minion is easily mistaken for a rock. It'll turn around if it bumps into a wall. If hit with an explosion, its Defense drops to 0.
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...

Bald Clefts appear again in Super Paper Mario as enemies in the Yold Desert. Like their relatives, they disguise themselves as rocks, and reveal their true form when a hero gets close enough. They attack the same way as they did in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. However, the Super Paper Mario variety aren't as tough as their other Paper Mario counterparts, as they can easily be defeated with Boomer. None have the ability to flip dimensions. They appear in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in rooms 13, 34, and 71.
