“See these bods? Solid iron. See these spikes? Yeah, they penetrate any substance.”
Armored Harriers, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Iron Clefts are a powerful type of Cleft found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The only known Iron Clefts are the two members of the Armored Harriers team in the Glitz Pit. They are large Clefts with a blue coloration, and as their name implies, they are made of impenetrable metal. Even if Mario manages to have the Piercing Blow badge equipped, he still will not deal damage, and a correctly-timed Superguard will not hurt them either. Yoshi's Gulp provides the only known way to defeat the Armored Harriers, as it involves hitting one of the Iron Clefts with the other.

Log No attacks can pierce the Defense of this hard, metallic Cleft. Are they impossible to defeat???
Tattle That's an Iron Cleft. That guy is SCARY. Period! Max HP is 6, Attack is 4, and Defense is...UNKNOWN?!? What's WITH this book? It says no attack will work against Iron Clefts! It says nothing in the world is as hard as an Iron Cleft, so its Defense is impenetrable. If that's true, the only way to beat one is to whack it with the other one... Running away may not be a bad idea at this point.
