Big Piranha Plant
From the Super Mario Wiki
(Redirected from Super Piranha Plant)
Big Piranha Plants (also known as Giant Piranha Plants or Super Piranha Plants) are giant Piranha Plants found in the game New Super Mario Bros. and its sequels. 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 in New Super Mario Bros., they give up eight coins instead of the usual one coin. In the sequels, this is reduced to three coins. Another similar enemy that appears only in New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the Big Venus Fire Trap.
Big Piranha Plants are shown to be appearing in Super Mario 3D World. Like normal Piranha Plants, these can be stomped to be defeated, but two stomps are required to do so. This is the first appearance of a Big Piranha Plant in a 3D Mario game.
