This article is about the Paper Fire Piranha Plants in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. For Fire Piranha Plants in the Paper Mario series, see Fire Piranha Plant § Paper Mario series.

Paper Fire Piranha Plants are paper forms of Fire Piranha Plants that appear as enemies in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Paper Fire Piranha Plants attack in stacks, though they occasionally split apart. When split apart, they can attack by spitting fireballs into the air, creating a large fireball that differs in size depending on how many Paper Fire Piranha Plants are present. They then blow the fireball into one of the Mario Brothers, which must be countered with a hammer. While in a stack, Paper Fire Piranha Plants can attack by coming out of the ground in front of the brothers. If the Paper Fire Piranha Plants turn sideways in front of one of the bros., they do not attack. Unlike regular Fire Piranha Plants, Paper Fire Piranha Plants cannot be safely jumped on, though dashing into one with the Dash Socks does not damage the bros. Paper Fire Piranha Plants are found in Twinsy Tropics.

Rare, shiny variants can also appear in place of the regular Paper Fire Piranha Plants in the same area. These Paper Fire Piranha Plants have greater stats and always drop either an Ultra Mushroom or a Shiny Battle Card when defeated, though their methods of attack remain the same.
