The Spike Bass[1] is an enemy in New Super Mario Bros. It resembles an oversized brown tadpole with a pale underbelly. It also has beaming yellow eyes, sharp teeth and spikes all over its body.

The Spike Bass appears in World 2-A and World 3-C. The Spike Bass jumps from the water and tries to attack Mario in a pattern extremely similar to a Porcupuffer. This enemy can be defeated with a Fireball, a Koopa Shell, a Starman or a Mega Mushroom. However, once defeated, another Spike Bass will return after a few seconds to continue the pursuit.
