Spiny Fish are fish-like enemies that appear in Yoshi's Story. They are depicted as larger than a Cheep Cheep and have more spikes on their body over where their plain underbelly and pectoral fins are normally located. They appear only in Level 5-1 of Yoshi Sea, Lots O'Jellyfish! If a Yoshi eats them, he loses some petals.
