Variant of Spiny Tromp

Spiky Tromps are rocky enemies from Super Paper Mario. They are smaller versions of Spiny Tromps. They slowly roll back and forth, changing directions when they hit a wall, and damage Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, or Luigi on contact. They are invincible and can only be defeated if Thoreau or Barry is used to make them fall into quicksand.

A Spiky Tromp

Spiky Tromps are first seen in Yold Ruins. At one point in Yold Ruins, Mario must activate a blue switch that opens several trapdoors, from which a large amount of Spiky Tromps fall. Mario then must press a large red switch that causes the Spiky Tromps to fall into a pit, allowing him to safely walk on them and enter a door that was previously out of reach.

Spiky Tromps also appear in the minigame Tilt Island. They fall from the sky onto the island, and Mario loses a life if they hit him. If Mario collects a Flower, he is able to knock them away with a spinning attack, scoring 2000 points.
