Not to be confused with Pokey Mummies.

Poison Pokeys are poisonous Pokeys that appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario.


Poison Pokeys are extremely similar in appearance to Pokey Mummys from Paper Mario. They are tall and blue-dark-green in color.


Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In this game, Poison Pokeys can mainly be found in Riverside Station alongside Ruff Puffs and a few other enemies. They can also be found on the lower floors in the Pit of 100 Trials.

Super Paper Mario


In this game, Poison Pokeys can be found in Castle Bleck or, more specifically, the Inner Sanctum.

In battle

Poison Pokeys mainly attack by slamming their bodies at Mario and lobbing their body segments at him as well. There is a chance that if Mario doesn't guard against the Poison Pokey's attacks, then it could possibly leave him Poisoned.


Unless he has the Spike Shield badge equipped, Mario should stick to using Hammer moves on Poison Pokeys. The Poison Pokeys are usually seen in groups so the Quake Hammer should be used. Also, having Koops, Vivian, or Bobbery as partners work as well (though Koops is a better choice).
