That's a Pale Piranha. You know about these guys. The famous Piranha Plants. This colorless subspecies is adapted to Boggly Woods. Ah, the wonders of nature! Max HP is 4, Attack is 2, and Defense is 0. If you try to jump on them, they'll totally chomp on you.


Pale Piranhas are a pale variant of Piranha Plant found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They live in the Boggly Woods and The Great Tree, and, as indicated, are colored in gray with white spots. They are the weakest of the four types of Piranha Plants in the game. In the Glitz Pit, a Pale Piranha appears as one of the members of Mind-Bogglers. They attack by biting Mario. When Mario comes near a Pale Piranha outside battle, it will try to bite Mario in a rush to make the First Strike causing him damage. If Mario attempts to jump on one, he will take damage.
