Spikes are a form of danger. When the player's Sack Person steps on them, they are instantly impaled. They are seen mainly in The Wedding and in The Islands. In LittleBigPlanet 1, 2, and PSP, they come in two types. Small (3 Spikes) and Large (9 Spikes). In LittleBigPlanet PSVITA, they come in three types. Single, Double (Same size as Single, (Both similar size to LBP 1, 2, PSP Small)), and Quadruple (Similar Size to Large). While being very difficult, there is a possible way to "hop" straight across spikes, you must jump as soon as you touch them. This is usually an accident as result of a player attempting to "ace" a level nervously taps their X button. This glitch probably won't result in Sack People achieving their wish of jumping over their troubles. This glitch may also work on electricity and fire. In LBP3 there are sideways small spikes and sideways large spikes.
- During The Creation Stages, when Sackboy fell on the spikes, he would be impaled, but creators thought it looked too violent. So they changed it to its current animation.
- In LittleBigPlanet 3, there are 4 types of spikes.
