That's a Frost Piranha. It's a cool customer with strong ice powers. Max HP is 10, Attack is 5 and Defense is 0. Its biting attack sometimes freezes us, so try to immobilize it first. It's weak against fire attacks, too, so use them as well.


Frost Piranhas are a species of Piranha Plants that first appeared in Paper Mario. They are larger than the average Piranha Plants and are a sky-blue color. Mario first encountered Frost Piranhas while on his way to Starborn Valley. Along with being exceptionally strong, they had the ability to shoot icy blasts of breath that can freeze Mario and his allies (although the blasts themselves won't hurt them). Frost Piranhas were later encountered on Shiver Mountain where they were less abundant.

Frost Piranhas reappear in Paper Mario's sequel Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They can be found on the way to Fahr Outpost and were slightly stronger than before, but noticeably lacking their ice-breath ability. However, their bite could still freeze Mario or his partners if they did not perform a Guard move. Like their Paper Mario counterparts, they can burrow underground and pop up to attack. Unlike in the previous game, they cannot be jumped on in battle.

Frost Piranhas reappear in Super Paper Mario in The Underwhere. This time their stalk is green like normal Piranha Plants instead of blue, and they are only found popping out of Warp Pipes.

Tattle This is a Frost Piranha. Frost Piranhas are frozen Piranha Plants. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0 They'll try to freeze you with their icy breath. You'll be at their mercy if they freeze you, so you'd better try to immobilize them right away. Ice attacks won't work--they love ice! Fire attacks, though...

Tattle This frigid Frost Piranha has subzero breath... Max HP is 7 and Attack is 3. If you get breathed on, you'll be frozen for a bit... Originally hailing from a cold climate, this plant struck out in search of new prey... This plant loves ice cream, but hates hot-fudge sundaes.
