From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
A Volcano Plant (also known as a Volcano Lotus) is a terrestrial plant that shoots out fireballs, appearing in Super Mario World and Super Princess Peach. A similar enemy only found underwater, the Lava Lotus, previously appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3.
Super Mario World / Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
Volcano Plants first appear in Super Mario World and later in Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World. They are stationary obstacles that spew small fireballs into the air at a diagonal angle, which proceed to slowly rain down on the surrounding area after reaching their highest point. While invulnerable to Fire Mario or Luigi's fireballs, Volcano Plants can be defeated by whirling Mario's or Luigi's cape next to them or eating them with Yoshi. Spin jumping on them or stepping on them while riding a Yoshi will not harm them, but will make the player bounce off without taking damage.
Super Mario World (television series)
A Volcano Lotus, referred to as a Fire Plant, appears in the episode "Send in the Clown" of the Super Mario World television series. It produces the fireballs that Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Toadstool use in a tennis game (in lieu of actual tennis balls).
Super Princess Peach
In the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft, Spore Blossoms are replaced by Volcano Plants.
