|First appearance||Mario Kart: Double Dash!! (2003)|
|Variant of||Piranha Plant|
The Pit Plant, or the giant Piranha Plant, is a dark green colored variety of Piranha Plant with spikes on its head. It appears only in Mario Kart: Double Dash!! in Dry Dry Desert, where it is located in the quicksand pit waiting for racers to fall in. If they do, the Pit Plant emerges to swallow the racers and their kart before quickly returning to below, causing the screen to fade to black and Lakitu to tow the drivers back into the race.
