Porcupuffers are water-type enemies that first appeared in Super Mario World. They are spiked enemies that will try to kill Mario by jumping out of the water to reach him, or they will simply try to run into him by ramming into him while he's in the water.

Appearance

The bulky Porcupuffer has purple outer skin and a white belly. It has slit eyes and puffy pink lips. It has spikes everywhere on its body with the exception of the underside. Its seemingly flimsy fins are light in purple and actually support the Porcupuffer very well.

The Porcupuffer appears in one level in World 6. It jumps out of the water occasionally to attack Mario. The player can hit it with a Koopa Troopa Shell or a Fireball to knock it out. It will appear again, similar to Lakitu.

Super Mario 3D Land/Super Mario 3D World

The Porcupuffer appears in Super Mario 3D Land and Super Mario 3D World. Instead of trying to hit Mario with its spikes, it jumps up and tries to eat Mario.
