Fire P-Pakkun are fire breathing versions of Jumping Piranha Plants that only appear in Super Mario World and its remake in the Special Zone. They mainly appear in the level Outrageous. A lone Fire P-Pakkun is also found in the level Groovy, and another one is found in Funky. They behave a lot like Jumping Piranha Plants except that they can also spit two fireballs similar to Fire Piranha Plants, though a Fire P-Pakkun's fireball goes in two separate directions. They are rare as there are only seven of them that appear in the entire game.
