A Cursya is an enemy from Super Paper Mario. Its name is a corruption of the phrase "curse you". It resembles seven tall green blobs with eyes, and two flexing protrusions on both sides that appear to be hands or claws. Switching to 3-D however, Cursyas are revealed to be made of thin, spinning disks. Touching one results in the player being cursed. The different types of Cursya each place a different curse on the heroes, though Piccolo can instantly remove any of these status-changing curses.
The regular Cursya makes the player move slower. They are first found in 2-4, moving slowly across a wide floor in Merlee's Basement. Its card can by obtained by falling off the front of the mansion's roof in 2-2. Since they cannot be harmed directly, the player must attack from a distance using Bowser's Fire Breath, Boomer, Cudge, Barry, a Pal Pill, or an item. Using Carrie to jump on a Cursya does not work.
Cursyas sometimes will drop a Poison Shroom when defeated.
