Variant of Pokey

The Pokeyplant[1] (originally simply localized as a Pokey)[2][3] is an enemy appearing in Super Mario Galaxy. It is a spineless maroon-colored Pokey with a yellow flower. It attacks by trying to crush Mario or Luigi, similar to normal Pokeys in Super Mario Sunshine, except that it does not get stuck in the ground, and it is mobile. It can be defeated by destroying all its body segments by spinning into them or by jumping on its head. Only one Pokeyplant appears in the entire game, in the Dusty Dune Galaxy.
