That's a Spinia. A totally weird creature made of thin, papery boards. It certainly looks unique. Nobody knows much about these creatures, actually. Its attacks are super-swift, but it should be pretty easy. Just give it a "Hee-YAAA!"

Spinia, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Spinias are creatures made of thin, papery discs in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They commonly appear in Rogueport Sewers alongside their later-found spiked sub-species called Spanias. Spinias are also found in the Pit of 100 Trials. Two Spinias also appear in Chapter 3 where they help make up the Glitz Pit team the Destructors who served as a replacement for Bandy Andy who had "retired". However, The Destructors exit the rankings when Bandy Andy comes back and takes their place.

The unused Spinia with a hamburger bun.
  • The name Spinia derives from Spin, the creature's trademark action, and a corruption of ya, a slang form of you.
  • Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's data reveals what could possibly be another Spinia sub-species (seemingly a hamburger-themed one); even more surprising is that this Spinia-like creature was supposedly going to be an ally of Luigi, as its sprite could be found next to those of Luigi's other partners.
  • In the Tattle Log, there's no space in between "HP" and "3" for Spinia.
