The Spike Chief, also known as the Spike Hero, is the leader of the Spikes. He is the most powerful and the most fearsome of all Spikes that roam Wumpa Island. He is a different color than regular Spikes; he is a dark grey with a red chest and wears bandages on his arms and legs. In the PS2 version, he is just dark gray. He has a more expressed glare on his face than regular Spikes and is a lot tougher. His only appearance so far is in Crash: Mind Over Mutant where he leads an invasion of Wumpa Island using a group of Spikes and Snipes. The Spikes he sends to invade Wumpa Island wreck Crash's house.
