A Spindel is a type of Grindel that appears in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. It is a cylindrical creature made of stone that continuously rolls over the same stretch of territory. The name "Spindel" comes from the word spindle, which is the part of a spinning wheel that holds the yarn that is being spun. A Spindel also resembles a giant cylinder with a thread of yarn spun around it but with a face.
Super Mario 64 / Super Mario 64 DS
A lone Spindel appears exclusively in the pyramid of Shifting Sand Land, where it can be found rolling back and forth in one section of the pyramid. There is a safe spot where Mario, Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario can hide to avoid being squished, though if one of them does get squished, he loses three wedges of his Health Meter.
