A Spindrift is a flying enemy from Super Mario 64. Spindrifts have a spinning flower on their heads which allows them to hover around. They also have a yellow cone at the bottom of their heads. A green leaf-like cape tops the first half of the yellow cone. A Spindrift's head is just a white sphere with two eyes and a small mouth. In the DS remake their heads now have a peach-yellow color, their flowers are somewhat bigger, their mouths and eyes are smaller and their mouths are now colored black instead of red.
If Mario jumps on the creature, the Spindrift releases three coins, and Mario Spin Jumps in the air. This technique could be used to get to other areas in new ways. Spindrifts appear in both snow worlds, Cool, Cool Mountain and Snowman's Land.
