* '''Exaggerated''': A game has spikes almost everywhere and almost every variation.

* '''Justified''': Those spikes are drawn very sharp and always far below the safe ledges and won't hurt you when touching sides of them.
** Alternatively, spikes might not look very sharp, but they're electrified.
* '''Inverted''': Spikes won't kill the player but flat ground does.
