Ice Piranha Plants[1] are a special variety of Piranha Plant first found in New Super Mario Bros. U. They are similar to Fire Piranha Plants, but spit Ice Balls instead of Fireballs. Unlike Frost Piranhas, another type of ice-based Piranha Plants, Ice Piranha Plants bear the standard Piranha Plant coloration, like Fire Piranha Plants.

History[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. U[edit]

Ice Piranha Plants make their first appearance in New Super Mario Bros. U. They look and act similar to Fire Piranha Plants, but shoot Ice Balls, which are capable of freezing playable characters as well as other enemies, similar to Ice Bros. They inhabit the world of Rock-Candy Mines, where three of them appear in the level Fuzzy Clifftop, with two in a Warp Pipe and one on the ceiling. Additionally, Yoshi can eat their Ice Balls and spit them at other enemies.

New Super Luigi U[edit]

Ice Piranha Plants reappear in New Super Luigi U. In this game, they appear in the level Broozers and Barrels in Frosted Glacier.
