Piranha Plant ("Pakkun" in Japan) is a Venus fly trap-like enemy, almost always portrayed as a leafy green stalk topped with a white-spotted green head(pink head in fire spitting ones,some can be purple,there are desert-colored piranha plants in Mario Forever 2014 World 3,gray color in stone ones.) bisected by a white lip mouth with sharp teeth. They have shown up many times in the series, typically hide within pipes (sometimes pipes Mario can go into), and come out whenever something passes close by. Some species can also spit fireballs. When Mario is standing on a pipe, they have the tendency to stay in the pipe. Blue Piranha Plants will come out even when Mario is standing on the pipe.
