|Inky Piranha Plant|
|Ally||Koopa Troop, Piranha Plants|
|Debut Appearance||Super Mario 3D Land|
|Latest Appearance||Mario Tennis Open|
Super Mario 3D Land would be the first appearance of the Inky Piranha Plants. They would first appear in underground levels that attack like a regular Piranha Plant, but can also spit ink out of their mouths to cover the screen, similar to a Blooper in the Mario Kart Series. While the ink is on the screen, Mario and Luigi will have reduce visibility until it is removed. The player can also blow into the microphone and have the ink removed that way. They can be defeated with any attack method, like the Piranha Plant.
The Inky Piranha Plant would return in Mario Tennis Open on the Ink Showdown special game. For this game, they will shoot tennis balls at the player who will have to hit them back without their opponent being able to hit them. The Inky Piranha Plant will also shoot ink at the player and the player will need to hit it to avoid having the 3DS screen covered in ink for a small period of time.
