A Spikey[1] is a hedgehog-like enemy found in the game Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. It can only be found in the Tree Zone's first stage. A Spikey's attack pattern consists of blinking between two shades, curling itself up into a ball, then dashing forward in an attempt to ram Mario. Despite having spikes, Spikeys can be defeated by jumping on their heads.
