The Pianta syndicate is a criminal organization of Piantas located in west Rogueport. During the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it is first led by Don Pianta, and later on by Frankie and Francesca. The Pianta syndicate is the rival organization to the Robbo Thieves, who are located on the east side of Rogueport. Violence often erupts between the two gangs, with at least one instance of violence occurring as Toadsworth meets with Mario shortly after Princess Peach's disappearance from Rogueport. While Toadsworth talks, two members of the Pianta syndicate can be seen in the background beating up two members of the Robbo Thieves.
The Pianta syndicate also owns the Pianta Parlor, a place where people can gamble on games with pianta tokens after acquiring membership cards. The syndicate's base is a nearby building in a rundown alley, and the only way to gain access is to purchase a Dried Shroom followed by a Dizzy Dial from Westside Goods. The store's owner will then inquire about the customer's favorite color; if the answer is yellow, the customer is granted access to the Pianta syndicate's headquarters.
