* Marble Garden Zone in ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic the Hedgehog 3]]'' has enemies that disguise themselves as spikes. The spikes are made of rubber, so they function like springs. The enemies aren't completely harmless, as they shoot at you, but you have to wonder why Dr. Robotnik decided on rubber spikes during the design phase.

The enemies aren't completely harmless, as they shoot at you, and touching them from the side without rolling into them will hurt you just like with most other enemies, but you have to wonder why Dr. Robotnik decided on rubber spikes during the design phase.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''[='=]s Marble Garden Zone, which is full of enemies that look like spike traps. However, these enemies' spikes don't do any damage if you jump onto the tips; in fact, they serve as weak springboards. On the other hand, they do shoot at you and they are, ironically enough, harmful to touch from the ''side''. Hint: Spindash from the side; if the spikes get destroyed then it was one of those fake-spike enemies.

* The first area of ''VideoGame/LaMulana'' has a "spike pit" full of objects that look identical to real spikes but are actually part of the background and have no effect on Lemeza whatsoever.

* Parodied in the fan-game ''VideoGame/ASuperMarioThing'', in a mid-game level titled "the hardest lvl"[sic]. The level looks somewhat challenging at first, but it's almost impossible to die in it because just about every hazard is fake.

* The voice that guides you in ''{{Depict1}}'' warns you that spikes will kill you instantly. Given that [[MissionControlIsOffItsMeds the voice almost always lies]]... [[spoiler:You can pick the spikes up and throw them.]]

* ''Everything'' that should logically kill you in ''Default Dan'' is actually this: spikes bounce you up and BottomessPits drop you from the top of the screen unharmed, while everything that should logically be helpful like coins and platforms make you [[YourHeadAsplode abruptly explode]].

* The frightening things that threaten you in ''{{Shivers}}'' include pits of bubbling tar, skeletons that fall on you, a hallway with foot-long spikes covering the walls, an electric chair, a guillotine, and a shadow of something just outside your vision. But none of these can hurt you; only the Ixupi can do that.
