A Spike is a very common hazard in I Wanna Be The Guy, appearing in nearly all of the screens. If The Kid makes contact with a Spike, he will instantly die, even if he touched the side of it. Also, just like the Delicious Fruits, they can fly in any direction if The Kid gets too close, and can stop after certain distances. Spikes may vibrate when they are about to fall, so this is something to watch out for. In fact, spikes, being one of the most common obstacles, can do pretty much anything. They are sometimes incorporated into other obstacles as well, for example the Spike Wall, Spike Monster and even a small spike that uses a rocket to rise up and kill the kid.
