A pole with a pianta flag sprouts out of the ground. Piantissimo can use it to get into the air, but it doesn't work in mid-air and must be climbed.
A random blooper appears and Piantissimo begins surfing on it. This move works similarly to the Wario Bike, being fast and powerful but hard to control.
There are three bloopers: yellow(slow, good control), green (balanced), pink (fast, bad control).
Piantissimo falls onto his stomach and begins sliding. It will stop when Piantissimo crashes into anything, but its a good way to get distance.
Piantissimo swipes at the opponent with his paintbrush. It'll poison them.
The Shine Gate appears behind Piantissimo and blasts shine sprites in all directions to do massive damage.
Piantas gather around Piantissimo and begin dancing in a parade to give him a large amount of Ratings.
Piantissimo draws a shield of paint around himself, draining Ratings from anyone who hits the shield.
II Piantissimo is a balanced character who has no strengths or weaknesses, being a good choice for beginners or a reliable one for veterans.

"Who the fuck is this? I thought Mario was going to be the balanced character! Instead, we get this asshole. He's an egotistical pianta poser who is regarded by the piantas to be a creep, and they aren't wrong. He challenges Mario for races in his home game, and uses Sunshine themed attacks in Battle Theater. How can he win the audience over with that face?
