Tattle This is a Piranha Plant. Piranha Plants pop out of the ground at unexpected moments, so be on your guard. Max HP: 5, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0 You've seen 'em in every one of your adventures, so I imagine you know 'em pretty well. Their sharp jaws point upward, so you'll get bitten if you try to jump on 'em. They smile after biting people. That smug smile...it makes me hopping mad!

Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Piranha Plant BrawlTrophy163.png NES Super Mario Bros. A vicious, plantlike monster that typically hides in pipes. Piranha Plants emerge with mouths open, awaiting victims. A poorly timed jump means a chomping--hence the "piranha" name. While there have been exceptions--there are many Piranha Plants with unique traits-- they generally don't appear if Mario waits on top of or just next to a pipe. They hate fireballs.

These guys aren't so much carnivorous as Mario...nivorous. Ahem. There are lots of varieties, like Frost, Wild Ptooie, Ghost, Prickly, Dino, Bone, Elasto-Piranhas, Stalking, Naval... A helpful mnemonic is "Fireballs with Ground Pounds defeat baddies, even super nasties." These carnivorous plants are hungry for one thing - Mario! There are all sorts of them, including the Naval Piranha, Fire Piranha Plant, Inky Piranha Plant, Piranha Creeper, Bone Piranha Plant, Stalking Piranha Plant... But all you need to know is "plants with teeth want to eat Mario".

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

(Note: Unlike other characters who were released as downloadable content, Piranha Plant has a unique conversation rather than having a generic conversation; this may be due to Piranha Plant being developed simultaneously with the base game.)

Nintendo eShop description[edit]

  • Piranha Plant joins the battle as a stand-alone fighter in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game! With its powerful bite, Poison Breath, and ability to call in Petey Piranha for a larger-than-life Final Smash, this fighter's ferocity is as sharp as it teeth. Ready your pipes and flowerpots; your opponent won't see you coming! (Then again, Piranha Plant doesn't really "see" either. It doesn't have eyes.)

"Touching these plants will hurt you more than them. Perhaps attacking them foot-first is not the best idea."

  • Dr. Mario World Twitter: Yellow: "I was wondering if it wasn't getting enough water, but turns out it's sick. Huh? It's got nothing to do with water? The Help Piranha Plant! event lasts till Feb. 2, 9:59 PM PT. Go help the poor thing get better!"[1]

  • These vicious, plantlike baddies are from the Super Mario™ series and typically hide in pipes. They emerge with mouths open, awaiting victims. A poorly timed jump means a chomping—hence the "piranha" name. While there have been exceptions, they generally don't appear if Mario waits on top of or just next to a pipe. They hate fireballs.
