Card description
It's a Dark Spike Top from a certain secret pit. Still cute, despite looking more noticeably evil.
That’s a Dark Spike Top. They live in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials... Max HP is 10. Attack is 4. Defense is 6. You can’t hurt it with flames... A hard shell AND a spike... This won’t be easy. I suggest using an item or throwing something at it.

The Dark Spike Top is a shady version of a Spike Top found in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials in Super Paper Mario. Their max HP is ten, their attack is four, and their defense is six. They are quite a tricky enemy to defeat with their high stats and their spiky shells which prevent them from being stomped or thrown by the pixl Thoreau. Cudge and Bowser's high attack power can make defeating them easier, though they are resistant to Bowser's Fire Breath, and Carrie can prevent the player from taking damage when jumping on the enemy.
