A thinking mushroom. Stupid and nasty, therefore, when it gets together with others in a group.—Official description, Rayman 3
If only there were nasty little spiky creatures that would bounce along, making a nuisance of themselves ... oh wait, there are!—Manual, Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge
Podocrocks, also known as Spikers in Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge, are a type of mushroom enemy that appear in Rayman 3 and Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge. These mushrooms gather together to form small groups of six, which block Rayman's path. By striking a group with his telescopic fist, Rayman can kill a single Podocrock, necessitating multiple punches to completely clear his pathway of them. With a fully charged fist, he can annihilate an entire group in one hit. It would even have the power to defeat nine of them at a stroke. An uncharged hit with the Heavy Metal Fist destroys five of the Podocrocks, whereas a fully charged Heavy Metal Fist has the potential to destroy 21 of them.
In Rayman 3, Podocrocks appear in the Fairy Council and the Land of the Livid Dead. At an early point in the game's development, they were designed as two-legged, two-eyed mushroom caps with visible lamellae and were able to jump.
