A Squiglet is an enemy in the game Super Paper Mario. It attacks by running into the player. It has 2 HP and its attack is 1. It has at least four black legs. Their card is found on top of Bestovius' house. It is number 044.

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.
