Pokey Head

A Pokey Head from Super Mario Galaxy 2.
First appearance Super Mario Galaxy (2007)
Latest appearance Super Mario 3D All Stars (2020)
Species origin Pokey

Pokey Heads are enemies appearing in Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They are basically a Pokey, but include only the head hence their name. They act similar to Pokey Sprouts in Super Mario Sunshine but they're green and lack any spikes.

Unlike standard Pokeys, they cannot fall on Mario, as they are too small. Instead, they hide in the ground, and jump out when Mario or Luigi come close. They then hop towards Mario slowly. They can be defeated with a Jump or Spin. Stomping will reveal a Coin and spinning will release 3 Star Bits. They are found mainly in desert Galaxies such as the Dusty Dune Galaxy and the Slipsand Galaxy.
