The Spiny Mine is a monster from the game Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Dungeon of Descent and the Likeness of the Great Evil.


Spiny mines are ugly anthropomorphic explosive flails that float threateningly into battle. They worryingly resemble naval mines, causing most adventurers to run at the first sight of them. Their bodies consist of a rotten round iron ball covered in sharp stabbing spikes with an evil one-eyed face and a mouth with sharp fangs, as well as a long clanking chain that dangles below their bodies. Spiny mines attack by swinging their spiked bodies in a circle, smashing into enemies and protruding their sharp spines into their flesh. They're also prone to simply self-destructing at will, damaging every single enemy in a massive manic explosion.

In the 3DS version, spiny mines and its ilk do not move around much, making them easy to avoid unless directly blocking the path of the party. However, if it is threatened by a much stronger enemy, spiny mines can actually move very fast by rolling themselves on the ground in order to flee.
