A Spiked Goomba failed to attack because of Cloud Nine

Cloud Nine is one of Lakilester's attacks in the game Paper Mario. The effect is that he creates a cloud that boosts Mario's evasiveness so that enemy attacks are likely to miss him. All the player has to do to get the best effect is press A Button as the red stars light up. Cloud Nine is a Super Rank attack and costs four Flower Points. Cloud Nine's name comes from the idiom "cloud nine," meaning "state of great happiness or dreaminess."
