This is a Pokey Mummy. Pokey Mummies are Pokeys that dried out and became mummies then went to live in the ruins. Max HP: 4, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0 Careful! They have spikes on their heads! Trust me--it'll hurt if you jump on 'em. The mummification also made 'em poisonous. If you get poisoned when they attack you, you'll take damage for a while. What do you say we beat 'em before they can poison us?

This article is about the enemy from Paper Mario. For the boss encountered in New Super Mario Bros., see Mummipokey.

For a similar enemy encountered in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario, see Poison Pokey.

Pokey Mummies are undead Pokeys that appear in Paper Mario in coffins/sarcophagi in Dry Dry Ruins. Despite their name, they do not resemble mummies or otherwise look obviously undead. In the following game, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Poison Pokeys appear instead, and closely remeble Pokey Mummies in both appearance and fighting strategies, as both have the ability to poison Mario and his friends.

Trivia[edit]

  • Pokey Mummies are the only enemies in Paper Mario that are "alternative versions" of previously encountered enemies (Pokeys, in this case) to be found within the same chapter as their counterparts. Other variations of enemies, such as the Flower Monty Mole and White Clubbas, are found in much later chapters.
