Crystal Bits are pieces of the Crystal King, a boss in Paper Mario. There are three aesthetic variants of Crystal Bits including a cube, an octahedron, and a sphere. They assist him in the Crystal King's battle with Mario. Due to having lower HP than any other enemy in the game, along with Tuff Puffs and Petit Piranhas, they can be destroyed quickly with a multi-hitting attack, such as the multibounce, Lakilester's Spiny Surge, or Thunder Rage. Crystal King can summon them several times throughout battle, using up a turn.
