Pokeys are enemies appearing in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS.


Pokeys are large, centipede-like creatures. They have a total of five yellow "body segments" that can be punched off by Mario, Luigi, and Wario. Yoshi can eat them. Each segment contains a number of small spikes. The top segment is the head, which contains the orange eyes and smiling mouth.

Attacks and Behavior

Pokeys slither on the ground, moving gradually. Mario can be hurt if one rams into him or vice-versa.


Beta Pokey

  • In the E3 1996 Beta, Pokeys had lines for spikes, normal looking eyes and a big smile. This was most likely changed because this design did not really look threatening.
