BACKGROUND: While not directly related to the Cleft family, Bristles can be thought of as a sort of "Super-Clefts". It's possible they evolved their long-range hammerman-smiting spikes by watching Clefts get creamed by adventurers wearing Power Smash or Piercing Blow badges. Bristles are generally territorial, only attacking those who invade their space.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
That's a Bristle. ...Totally covered in spikes. They're so prickly! AND they're impervious to fire! Even trying to get close enough to whack it with a hammer is dangerous! Seriously, its spikes will totally pop out! So, since you can't Jump on it or use your Hammer... you'd better use an item! - Gombella
