Spike's Surprise is Spike's special attack in Crash of the Titans and Crash: Mind Over Mutant where Spike raises up its arm, raising a circle of large spikes around it. It inflicts a good amount of damage upon enemies.
- A similar move is used by Uka Uka.
- When used on a bridge near the edge (or any other thin platform), the spikes can be seen even when they move back into the ground.
- The spikes can also be seen after they retract if it is performed right on the edge of any platform, as the spikes can appear in mid-air.
