—Spiky Joe, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Spiky Joe is a Red Spike Top that is seen only in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is a major-league fighter of the Glitz Pit. Spiky Joe can be seen in the major league locker room, allowing Mario and his partner to talk to him. His team is called the Tiny Spinies; they are the first enemies that Mario faces in the major league. Spiky Joe is one of the few nice major-league members (the only other one being Hamma Jamma); despite losing to "The Great Gonzales", he does not hate him, and merely swears to train more and get better one day.
