The Spiny is a recurring enemy in the Super Mario games and debuted in the classic Super Mario Bros. (1985) already. Spiny enemies returned in almost all of the sequels including Super Mario Odyssey (2017) but also many of the spinoff games and series like the Mario Party games, Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi and even the Mario Sports games including Mario Tennis Aces (2018).

Usually, Spiny is thrown at the player by a Lakitu and can only be defeated with Fireballs or while being invincible through a Super Star.
