The Mad Piano attacking Mario in Super Mario 64.

The Mad Piano[1] is a piano appearing in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. It looks normal at first, but when Luigi, Wario or Mario goes near the instrument, it begins to open and close its lid, revealing sharp teeth. The Mad Piano then proceeds to chase and attack the trespasser (while making the sounds that sound like someone hitting its keys) until they have left the room where the piano lies. The Mad Piano only appears in Big Boo's Haunt. A Red Coin can be found behind it.

It is impossible to defeat this enemy; it can only be avoided.

A similar piano makes a cameo appearance in Mario Party 2 in Horror Land. It only appears at night.
