Gūrindai are an alternative to Spiny Eggs for Lakitus to throw. They appear only 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. They grow into Piranha Plants upon landing.

"Gūrindai" is derived from yet another part of the folktale character Jugemu's name.
