Spikes are sharp, pointy white obstacles common in many Sonic games. The points cause damage to the player when touched. Spikes cannot be destroyed.

In Sonic 3's Marble Garden Zone, there is an enemy that looks like a set of spikes, but acts as a spring and rises slightly out of the ground to shoot projectiles when the player approaches it.
