Piranha Plants are a carnivorous plant in the Mario universe which rise from Warp Pipes.

In Super Smash Bros.

Piranha Plant

A Piranha Plant in Super Smash Bros.

Piranha Plants periodically appear from the Warp Pipes on the Mushroom Kingdom stage. They are enemies and seem to appear at random rather than according to any set rhythm. Just as in the original Super Mario Bros. game, Piranha Plants will not appear when a player is standing on top of the warp pipe or directly next to one. Sometimes, hitting the Piranha Plant will "neutralize" it and allow a player to come into contact with it without being damaged. A powerful enough hit will destroy the plant, although not permanently as another will simply take its place.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A Piranha Plant may sometimes appear as a stage element on PictoChat. However, they don't go up or down, and they stay on the stationary platform. Also, Petey Piranha, the first boss of the Subspace Emissary, is a Piranha Plant. [1]

Trophy Description

A vicious, plantlike monster that typically hides in pipes. Piranha Plants emerge with mouths open, awaiting victims. A poorly timed jump means a chomping--hence the "piranha" name. While there have been exceptions--there are many Piranha Plants with unique traits-- they generally don't appear if Mario waits on top of or just next to a pipe. They hate fireballs.

Trophy Description

These guys aren't so much carnivorous as Mario...nivorous. Ahem. There are lots of varieties, like Frost, Wild Ptooie, Ghost, Prickly, Dino, Bone, Elasto-Piranhas, Stalking, Naval... A helpful mnemonic is "Fireballs with Ground Pounds defeat baddies, even super nasties."
