Artwork of a Squiglet.

A Squiglet is an enemy in the game Super Paper Mario. It attacks by running into the player. It has 2 HP and its attack is 1. It has at least four black legs. Their card is found on top of Bestovius' house. It is number 044.

Squiglets fill the role of Goombas in the game, as they simply walk back and forth, and can only damage Mario if he comes in contact with one of the creature's sides. When it spots Mario, a Squiglet will hop up and down instantly, a behaviour it seems to outgrow in its other forms. Squiglets are more common then the Goombas.

They appear in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in rooms 1, 3, 8, and 97.
