Grindels are very similar in shape to Thwomps, but Grindels lack the curved edges of Thwomps. Grindels have stone on their upper and lower edges, with what appears to be a mummified mass in between. These unusual things have blue, slightly gray eyes, large bushy eyebrows, and a wide grinning mouth with yellow teeth. Their counterpart is the Spindel
Grindels have a similar attack to a Thwomp: they will hop around a set path and try to crush the player underneath (for comparison, Thwomps stay still). Grindels are somewhat dangerous.
Grindels only appear in the pyramid in Shifting Sand Land.
