A Spiky Parabuzzy, a.k.a. S. Parabuzzy, is a Parabuzzy and Spike Top hybrid who first appeared in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They are mainly seen in the underground rooms in Riverside Station, and the Pit of 100 Trials at around floors 41-49. Since they have both wings and a spiked shell, they cannot be jumped on and they cannot be attacked with hammers; due to them being a type of Buzzy Beetle, fire and explosion attacks cannot hurt them. Mario needs a Spike Shield, a Hammer Throw badge, or an item to attack them safely, as well as having a partner who can attack air enemies without touching the spike. Spiky Parabuzzies lose their wings when stomped with Spike Shield equipped, causing them to become regular Spike Tops.
In Super Paper Mario, they also appear in several locations such as the Overthere Stair and Castle Bleck. They often fly up and down, trying to block Mario's path near a pit. If the player uses Carrie, however, they'll be able to step on them without getting hurt.
They also appear in Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Mario Maker 2, where they can be produced by giving a Spike Top wings. If wings are applied, it will fly in a straight line, and jumping on them will cause damage, except if using a Goomba's Shoe or Yoshi. Like Parabuzzies, they fly upward whenever someone or something lands on their shell. Also, like their wingless counterparts, Spiky Parabuzzies with blue shells will move much faster than those with red shells.
