* ''VideoGame/Minecraft'' has Guardians, aquatic mobs that resemble one-eyed fish that can extend and retract their spines. Hitting them with melee attacks while their spines are extended will damage the player, although the attack still damages the Guardian. Players can also invoke this by enchanting their armor with Thorns, though this will increase the rate at which armor degrades from attacks.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'':
** The Keeper of the Grove's Thorns Aura turns every ally in range into a Spiny by making melee units take damage when attacking.
** The orcs can upgrade their buildings with Spiked Barricades for the same effect.
** The Crypt Lord's Spiked Carapace not only makes melee attackers take damage, it also increases his armor.

* The ''VideoGame/DisneysMagicalQuest'' game series has its share of enemies that couldn't be harmed by jumping on them. One example would be the walking flames from the third game.

* RealLife animal (and plant) Spinies are too numerous to list. Being covered with something nasty is a very popular survival strategy.

* From ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' onwards, Kirby could inhale and swallow thorny enemies to gain the Needle power and turn ''himself'' into a Spiny. However, Kirby can't move while the spikes are out.

* The Porcupine from MarvelComics combined this schtick with being able to shoot off his spines, fire sleep gas from some of them (hollow tubes, likely), and otherwise be augmented by his spiky powered armor. That is, until [[spoiler: after he had a HeelFaceTurn followed by [[RedemptionEqualsDeath dying]] after [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard falling on one of his own]] broken-off spikes.]]
