|First appearance||Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010)|
Spinecones are horned turban snail-like enemies that appear in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Their name is a portmanteau of "spine" and "pinecone." Each Spinecone has a giant blueish-white cone-shaped shell adorned with orange spikes and has a purple head with a pair of skittish eyes that dart back and forth constantly. Spinecones first appear as uncommon enemies in the Starshine Beach Galaxy's underwater portion. They later appear as one of the main obstacles in Boo Moon Galaxy's mission Haunting the Howling Tower. They move around very slowly and cannot be defeated.
