A Frost Piranha is a large, sky-blue colored Piranha Plant with a freezing bite and icy breath, found in the Paper Mario series of games.


Paper Mario series[edit]

Paper Mario[edit]

Frost Piranhas first appeared in Paper Mario. They are larger than the average Piranha Plant and are a sky-blue color. Like Putrid Piranhas, they face side-ways, which allows them to be jumped on. 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.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door[edit]

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.

Super Paper Mario[edit]

Frost Piranhas return in Super Paper Mario, where they are found 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. They can attack by breathing an ice gust. Frost Piranhas sometimes drop an Ice Storm if defeated.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, one of Piranha Plant's alternate color schemes is based on a Frost Piranha, but the stalk is yellow and the hand leaves are yellow and green. Also, it is mentioned briefly by Viridi during Palutena's Guidance dialogue for Piranha Plant.

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...

Log A Piranha Plant with ice powers that's weak against fire. Its biting attack sometimes freezes you.
Tattle 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.
