Kill 10 enemies with Teeth.png Teeth.

Strategy

Spike is a purely defensive Companion, with no Attack.png attack or Counter.png Counter. Instead, it uses Teeth.png Teeth to punish anything that attacks it. This is extremely valuable in the early game when many enemies have low Health.png health; for instance, Pengoon.png Pengoons and Baby Snowbo.png Baby Snowbos die in one hit and Snowbo.png Snowbos die in two. However, Spike's Hogheaded means that every point of damage it takes is permanent if not healed, making it generally unhelpful in the late game when many enemies can inflict 5+ damage in a single hit. If Spike does have proper support from healing, Shell.png Shell, or Frost.png Frost, though, it can be effective throughout an entire run.

Trivia

Spike bears some resemblance to some of The Toothy Shades and appears to be a juvenile version of Maw Jaw.png Maw Jaw, but any specific connection beyond their toothiness is unknown. If Spike is in fact a Shade, its Hogheaded ability may reference how the Summoned ability prevents Shades from being recalled.
