A Spiked Fun Guy[1] is a small green type of Pokey in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its reissue, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. Spiked Fun Guys inhabit a handful of stages. Ordinarily, they merely move back and forth along the ground, bouncing back when they collide with a wall. As they move, they rapidly contract their heads up and down. A bouncing version in a pot also exists.
