—Spinia, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Spinias are creatures made of thin, papery discs in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. 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 programming 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.
- Spinias and Spunias were going to be in Super Paper Mario but were taken out. However, Spanias are still in the final game.
