These things make my Spiny crawl

Paper Mario: The Origami King brings back some familiar foes, many of which can be a pain to deal with.

Spiny enemies are a pain to deal with, due to the fact that Mario can't jump on them like a Goomba.

So how do you deal with them? Here's how to easily defeat them.

How To Defeat Spiny Enemies In Paper Mario: The Origami King

There are two ways to defeat Spiny enemies - using your hammer or using special iron boots.

Using a hammer will do damage, but will not affect more than one if they're in a line. Instead, line them up into two rows of two, so that they form a square. The area of effect damage that the hammer gives off will dispatch of them.

Alternatively, you can get the iron boots which will allow Mario to jump on Spiny enemies in a line without being hurt.
