(Redirected from Super Piranha Plant)
Big Piranha Plants (also known as Giant Piranha Plants or Super Piranha Plants) are large Piranha Plants.
New Super Mario Bros.
Big Piranha Plants are found in the game New Super Mario Bros. Unlike most Piranha Plants (including Piranhacus Giganticus), Big Piranha Plants are never found inside pipes due to their gigantic size. Mario must shoot three fireballs at one to destroy them. When defeated, they give up eight coins instead of the usual one coin.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
In New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Big Piranha Plants function the same as before. However, when destroyed, they now give up three coins instead of eight. Another similar enemy that appears only in New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the Big Venus Fire Trap.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
New Super Mario Bros. U
Big Piranha Plants return with the same function as before. They are seen in many levels, especially in Rise of the Piranha Plants. One Big Piranha Plant is also featured in the Boost Rush level Piranha Plant Hideaway. A shortcut for this level is to have the player utilizing the Gamepad rapidly tap on the Big Piranha Plant, creating room for the player to jump over its head, reaching the Goal Ring.
