A Spring Topman with its spring exposed.
A Spring Topman is a sub-species of Topman, appearing in Super Mario Galaxy as part of the Topman Tribe. It resembles a large green top. A Spring Topman can use a spin attack which does not damage Mario, but it pushes him away. However, this spin could potentially be used to push Mario into other hazards that may hurt him. If Mario tries to stomp a Spring Topman or spins it, its head will pop up, immobilizing it, and a second stomp will spring Mario up for a jumping boost (similar to when Mario jumps on a Spindrift in Super Mario 64). Mario often had to take advantage of this to reach high ledges and items. The only way to defeat one is to spin it into an electric fence.
It appears in the Dreadnought Galaxy.
