Card description
This white-gloved weirdo will reach out and grab you. You can't beat it and it's creepy, so just steer clear.
That’s an Underhand. These creepy hands try to drag the dead deeper into oblivion... If they met a living person, they would certainly try to drag him or her down too... You can’t defeat them, so it’s best to run...

Underhands are invincible enemies in Super Paper Mario. Their appearance is that of a skeletal and/or ghostly hand, attached to a disjointed white arm of sorts. They are encountered in Chapter 7-1, The Underwhere, within the River Twygz. Most swim freely around the water; others are attached to the bottom. Underhands will pursue and/or reach toward the player to attempt to damage them, in a manner similar to Deep-Cheeps. When the water in the River Twygz is drained, they disappear. They are later seen in Chapter 7-2 along the Underwhere Road. It is possible to knock an Underhand's "head" off using Barry, after which its body will disappear and its head will create a new body after a brief moment after it falls. They can also be stunned with Fleep.
