Crystal Bits are pieces of the Crystal King, a boss in Paper Mario. There are three aesthetic variants of Crystal Bits including a cube, an octahedron, and a sphere. They assist him in the Crystal King's battle with Mario. Due to having lower HP than any other enemy in the game, along with Tuff Puffs and Petit Piranhas, they can be destroyed quickly with a multi-hitting attack, such as the multibounce, Lakilester's Spiny Surge, or Thunder Rage. Crystal King can summon them several times throughout battle, using up a turn, although he will stop summoning them once his HP drops below 35. If, however, the player manages to defeat the Crystal King as his HP remains above 35, the Crystal Bits will automatically be defeated when the Crystal King himself has been defeated.
The Crystal Bits both resemble and serve a similar purpose as the Fire Crystal, Water Crystal, Earth Crystal, and Wind Crystal do to Culex in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
