Gūrindai are an alternate version of Spiny Eggs. Like Spiny Eggs, they are thrown by Lakitus, but turn into a Piranha Plant upon landing rather than a Spiny. They only appear in New Super Mario Bros. U in the level Blooming Lakitus, and in New Super Luigi U in the levels Spinning Sandstones and Beanstalk Jungle.
