Big Fire Piranha Plants (also known as Big Venus Fire Traps) are enemies first appearing in the Tiny-Huge Island are of Super Mario 64. They reappear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and are enlarged Fire Piranha Plants that act exactly like their normal counterparts with one difference; Big Fire Piranha Plants are larger and their fireballs are comparatively larger as well.
They can be defeated by shooting three fireballs at them or by using an Invincibility Star. Only two are found only in World 2-3. They reappear in New Super Mario Bros. 2, where they are found in World 5. Instead of shooting large Fireballs, they shoot out normal sized ones like their smaller counterparts.
After an absence in New Super Mario Bros. U they reappear in its expansion pack New Super Luigi U in Piranhas in the Dark and Light-Up-Lift Tower.
