The Punk Rocks

The Punk Rocks (a.k.a. the Green Torture Squad) is a fighting group for the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The team consists of three Hyper Bald Clefts, including the team's presumed leader, Cleftor. Goombella recommends that Mario have some items beforehand, as they are rock-hard and impervious to fire. The team name is a pun on the type of music, punk rock.

The Punk Rocks are ranked 12th in the Glitz Pit, being one of the top fighting groups of the Minor League division.

Log A hyperactive Bald Cleft that can charge up energy, boosting its Attack to eight.
Tattle That's a Hyper Bald Cleft. Like Clefts and Bald Clefts, this is also a rock monster. Max HP is 3, Attack is 2, and Defense is 2. This hyper version can build up its energy, boosting its Attack to 8 on the next turn. It has low HP, but its body is rock-hard and impervious to fire, making it super-tough. It says here that item attacks are pretty effective. Beat it before it goes hyper!
