Fire P-Pakkun are fire breathing versions of Jumping Piranha Plants that only appear in Super Mario World and its remake in Cookie Mountain and 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.
