Dark Squiglet

Squiglets are enemies in Super Paper Mario. They have 2 HP and their attack is 1. They have at least four black legs and attack by running into the player. Their Catch Card is found on top of Bestovius' house and is number 044. Their name is probably derived from "squiggle," given its linear design and looping leg movements, and "piglet."

Squiglets are similar to Goombas in the game, as they simply walk back and forth, and can only damage the heroes if they comes in contact with one of the creature's sides. However, the difference between the two is that when a Squiglet spots a hero, a Squiglet will hop up and down instantly, a behavior it seems to outgrow in its other forms. Like red-shelled Koopa Troopas, they do not walk off ledges. Squiglets are the most common enemies in the game, more common than Goombas. They often appear in pairs and show up alongside Squigs, a stronger variant of Squiglets.

They appear in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in rooms 1, 3, 8, 27, 41, and 97.
