 Game Appearances

The Piranha Plant is set to appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2. A golden variant of them appear in the game as well and look to do the same thing as a regular Piranha Plant.
Piranha Plants would appear in the Mario Kart Series as obstacles. They would first appear on Choco Islands in Super Mario Kart. They would sit on the track as an obstacle and when a player runs into them, the player will spin out.
Mario Kart: Double Dash!! would seem them appear on Mario Circuit and Yoshi Circuit. They would return in their pipe and when a driver gets near, they will attempt to bite the driver. When hit, they will flip over and the thrower would end up being dragged behind the kart. Piranha Plants can however be stunned by a projectile item like a Green Shell.
