Big Spinies are larger variants of Spinies that first appear in Mario Party 9. The only minigame they appear in is Sock it to Lakitu, when Lakitu's health is dropped by half. Lakitu will start throwing Big Spinies, they act the same way as normal Spinies in the boss fight except that if the player gets hit by a Big Spiny, they will lose two points.
They reappear in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS if the player enlarges a normal Spiny. Wings can be added to them to enable flight. Every few seconds, flying Spinies will hide in their shells and shoot four spikes in a diagonal path.
A single Big Spiny appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash as a mini boss in Kiwano Temple, where it guards a Mini Paint Star. In battle, it can charge up its attacks and fly at Mario to do damage. Swoops can assist the Big Spiny in battle.
