The Spiked Collar is a members-only land clothing item. It was initially obtained as one of the Monthly Member Gifts during July 2011. On August 8, 2013, the "Long" style was re-released in the Diamond Shop with new colors, but have no longer been in stores since. During June 23–26, 2016, the "Short" style was re-released in the Diamond Shop with new colors as part of the Spiked Sale.
The Spiked Collar consists of spikes protruding from a circular band worn around the neck. "Long" Spiked Collars have a pattern of large spikes and small spikes, but "Short" Spiked Collars only have one size of spikes. There are eight different color versions of each type (non-rare "Long", non-rare "Short", rare "Long", and rare "Short") for a total of thirty-two varieties.
