Petey Piranha Strikes Back
Upon entering the village for this episode, the player will find goop splattered around everywhere. Cleaning it up will make the upcoming battle with Petey Piranha easier. To get to Petey Piranha, the player has to make it to the back of the village and find a submerged Pianta in the goop. Spraying the area around the Pianta will make him pop out of the ground. Cleaning the goop off of him and talking to him afterward will cause him to throw the player upward. The player has to align the throw with the grassy ledge above as the Pianta will throw the player behind him based on the direction they are facing. After talking to him, the Pianta will start walking around and may get stuck in the goop again. Once up on the ledge, the player has to climb up a series of shorter ledges and walk to the fence. Getting a Poink stuck to F.L.U.D.D.'s nozzle, the player has to fill it up with and release to fire it at Petey Piranha, who is sleeping on a platform in the middle of a lake. The lake below cannot be entered, as it is at the bottom of a deep pit and falling into it causes the player to lose a life.
After hitting Petey Piranha with a Poink, he will wake up and begin flying into town where the battle takes place. Whenever Petey Piranha stops in the air, he will attempt to spew goop on the town. To knock him down, the player needs to spray Petey Piranha with water as he is charging his attack. Once on the ground, Petey Piranha will behave similarly to the last battle, though he can now summon two tornadoes if Mario is too far away. Once Petey Piranha starts inhaling to fire goop, the player needs to spray water in his mouth until Petey Piranha falls over. His belly button will become enlarged and the player now needs the Ground Pound the belly button in order to deal damage. The water Petey Piranha swallowed will then be thrown up and will wash away any goop around him. After this, Petey Piranha will get up and start flying once more. The player needs to repeat this process two more times to defeat Petey Piranha, revealing the Shine Sprite.
