The Piranha Plant (Known as Planta Piraña in Spanish) is a flower species, and also a common enemy from the Super Mario series. There appearance is that of a normal flower with a round head replacing the flower. Their heads are usually red with white spots, but they can come in a variety of colors, which occasionally affects their abilities. They are most commonly found in pipes, but have also appeared growing freely in the ground. While most are stationary, a select few have mutated, allowing them to freely walk around.Some are able to breath fire balls.
In Smash Tactics, Piranha Plants are the defensive structures of the Mushroom Kingdom team. Piranha Plants can be built, and they are upgraded to Bungee Piranhas (which do extra damage to, and hit multiple, ground units, but cannot damage air units). Another defensive structure is the Firebar, which does very much damage and only hits air units.
According to a recent magazine article, Piranha Plants will appear in Yoshi's Island 2. They appear to act the same as they did it the original.
