Spikey appears to be a small hedgehog-like creature. It has a thick coat of black spikes, two red feet, stubby arms, Kirby-like eyes, and no nose or mouth.
Spikey walks about, periodically ejecting its spikes. These damage Kirby and his Animal Friends if they touch them.
Spikey appears as an enemy in Kracko's stage. It remains in one place or walks slowly back and forth. It grants Kirby the Needle ability when defeated. It is the only source of this ability outside of the Changer item.
