Spiky Snifits are cacti which reside in Teehee Valley during the events of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They wear Snifit masks that shoot either spiked balls or Mushrooms. Spiky Snifits are usually found with Gritty Goombas, and are weak to Mario's Firebrand. While most of the Gritty Goombas it can appear with disappear after leaving Little Fungitown, they can still be encountered with the Gritty Goombas that live in the valley's pipes. Spiky Snifits also do not appear on the field.

Spiky Snifits give two hints as to whom they will attack. First, it will shift back and forth. If its right arm becomes visible, the enemy will attack Mario; if not, Luigi will be the target. Secondly, the Spiky Snifit's mouth will vibrate before it actually attacks. If so, the object will travel on a low arc, and the Mario Bros. must jump to avoid it. If this step does not occur, the spat object will bounce harmlessly over the target's head.

Trivia: - Oddly, even though they are called Spiky Snifits, they are really cacti.
