This is a Pokey Mummy. Pokey Mummies are Pokeys that dried out and became mummies then went to live in the ruins. Careful! They have spikes on their heads! Trust me--it'll hurt if you jump on 'em. The mummification also made 'em poisonous. If you get poisoned when they attack you, you'll take damage for a while. What do you say we beat 'em before they can poison us?

Pokey Mummies are undead Pokeys that appear in Paper Mario in coffins in the area Dry Dry Ruins. They closely resemble Poison Pokeys. Pokey Mummies also fight like Poison Pokeys, having the ability to poison Mario and his friends; nonetheless, the two are a different species. Although their resting places resemble coffins, there is a possibility that they are actually sarcophagi. The coffin has a face much like a Pokey Mummy itself. Besides its name, a Pokey Mummy does not resemble an actual mummy; it is not wrapped in bandages and does not have the physical appearance of the undead.
