EVOLUTION: Spike Top first appeared in Super Mario World, and has returned in some Paper Mario games and Super Princess Peach. He hasn't changed too much over the years.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"The Spike Top is a more difficult foe than the similar Buzzy Beetle, because you can't use a jump attack to flip one over. Hammers are the name of the game with the critter. An interesting note is that it's immune to fire attacks." - Paper Mario Player's Guide
"This Buzzy has high defense and a pointy spike on its shell. You'll take damage if you stomp on it." - Paper Mario: TTYD Player's Guide
