Grindels are enemies in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.


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.
