Pokeys are cactus-like enemies that appear in many games in the Super Mario series. They are yellow and spherical in appearance, and are covered in various spikes. The number of segments a Pokey has varies from Pokey to Pokey: they have also been known to be able to throw their segments as an attack mechanism. The top segment of the Pokey is where its face is located, always displaying a dashing but somewhat unsettling smile.
They are usually seen with spikes on their heads, but some sub-species have flowers. These can be jumped on, except for in New Super Mario Bros. If Mario throws a fireball at Pokey, one of its segments will fall off. However, if the fireball connects with the Pokey's head, all of its segments will disperse at once. Pokeys were first seen in Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario World, existing as prominent foes in both games under the sovereignty of Wart and Bowser.
Pokeys appear in the stage Yoshi Desert in Super Mario MHL.
Pokey appears in Super Smash Bros. Insanity as a playable character. He can be unlocked by fighting on any stage five times in a row, or reaching level twelve in story mode.
Pokey appears as a heavy weight driver in Koopa Kart.
Super Mario Bros.: Fury Combined!
A Pokey known as Skull-Pokey appears as a boss in World 2: Deserted Desert.
Pokeys make a return in New Super Mario Bros.: Revenge of the Bros. as common enemies in the desert. For the first time since Mario Kart Wii, Pokeys now have a pink flower on their head (which was previously their staple appearance in games released from 2002-2009). They behave identically to how they did in previous games however there are some Pokeys that have up to 15 segments making for some strategy to get around. Fireballs can easily remove the segments of a Pokey. Despite their head not being spiked, jumping on it can still hurt. Pokeys are commonly found in World 2 and Plus World 2. Snow Pokeys are also seen in this game. These Pokeys appear in World 4, World 7, and Plus World 4.
- In Super Mario World, there's one level with four Pokeys on different hills. If Yoshi eats all of these Pokeys' segments aside from their heads, the player can create a four-headed Pokey.
- Pokeys have been shown to reproduce by pulling new Pokeys out of the desert sands.
