That's a Red Spike Top. It's the most well protected of the Buzzy Beetle species. Max HP is 5, Attack is 3, and Defense is a whopping 4. Yup... This guy is HARD! It has really high Defense, and fire and explosions don't hurt it at all. If we can just find a way to flip it over, its underside has Defense of 0... And that spike... What a pain! There's gotta be a way to flip it over...

The Red Spike Buzzy (also called an R.S. Buzzy and Red Spike Top) is a red Spike Top in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They appear only in the Glitz Pit. Normal Spike Tops in the game are blue, but are otherwise identical to the Red Spike Buzzies.

Note that in some older versions of the game, its defense is incorrectly listed as being 5. This error was corrected for later versions of the game, however, such as the PAL release.
