Kingdom Hearts III
When it gets puffed up, you get roughed up. Watch out for that flying press once its belly fills with air! The shell on its back is Keyblade-proof, so you'll have to find softer places to smack.

It can swallow nearby Flowersnakes, then sprout them as toxic turrets. And if it swallows you… Don't let it swallow you.

The Spiked Turtletoad is an Unversed that appears in Kingdom Hearts III.


The Spiked Turtletoad is a monstrous Unversed that resembles a large toad. Its main body is blue with a pink stomach and a purple shell covered with black spikes featuring red tips. Its Unversed symbol is on its face, where it has a pair of black stalk-eyes with red horizontal slit eyes, as well as a wide mouth with a purple tongue. On the sides of its face are a pair of noodle-shaped whiskers that end in a pink loop with three spikes at its tip. Its four legs are raindrop shaped and have a black diamond shaped pattern near the feet.


The Spiked Turtletoad can do a flying press to flatten the player (this attack triggers Risk Dodge) and eat the player. Its back is attack-proof. Some have Flowersnakes on their back that function as turrets; others can eat Flowersnakes to add them to their back.

Spiked Turtletoads are often accompanied by smaller enemies, so the player should focus on attacking them first to build a Formchange before taking on the big enemy. Once achieved, go up to its face and keep attacking. Formchanges that transform the Keyblade into big weapons, such as the Hyper Hammer, Drill Punch, Blizzard Claws, or Blizzard Blades, are the best choices since they are always guaranteed to push back the toad. Once acquired, the Ultima Weapon Shotlock, Infinity Circle, can also destroy a Spiked Turtletoad in a single salvo on lower difficulties or at higher levels.
