Poker Faces, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Poker Faces (aka The Ultimate Weapons) are two Bristles that Mario fights in the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Their name is derived from "poker face," when a person's face does not indicate what kind of cards they have. It is also a pun on "poke," referencing their spiked appearance.

The Poker Faces are ranked 8th in the Glitz Pit.
