Squoinkers are a stronger variety of Squigs found in Super Paper Mario. While Squiglets are magenta, Squigs are purple and Squogs are green, Squoinkers are a very light pink. They are found only in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials and are the second strongest in the Squig family, second to only Dark Squiglets. Their attack pattern is very identical to the other Squigs. They either charge at Mario or his friends or shoot them with fast-moving rocks.

Their name comes from either "square" or "squiggle", and "oinker", a slang word for "pig".
