Piranha Panic is a mini-game from Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Super Sluggers. It is a 4-player mini-game that is played at Yoshi Park, and, as the name implies, features Piranha Plants as the obstacle for players in this game.

[edit] Rules and Objective

Within a 60-second time limit, you must hit as many Piranha Plants with Eggs and Bob-ombs. Each player will be in a small Warp Pipe while the Piranha Plants are in bigger Warp Pipes facing the players. Every player will have an endless supply of colored eggs and they must throw the eggs at the correct Piranha Plant. The eggs come in 4 different colors, and thus, there are 4 different colored Piranha Plants. Fire Green Eggs at Green Piranha Plants, Red Eggs at Red Piranha Plants, Yellow Eggs at Yellow Piranha Plants, and Blue Eggs at Blue Piranha Plants. To hit the Pirahna Plant in the left Warp Pipe, tilt the control stick to the left as you throw the egg. For the center Warp Pipe, point the Control stick forward. Point it to the right to aim for the right Warp Pipe. If you hit a Piranha Plant with the wrong colored egg, it is highly likely that it will shoot a Fireball at you. You can simply duck under the fireball by moving the control stick down to hide in your Warp Pipe. However, if the fireball hits you, then you will be blasted out of your Warp Pipe and lose valuable time to the other competitors. When you come across a Bob-omb, you can fire it at any Piranha Plant you like. Alternatively, you can get rid of it with the B button to interfere with another player at random. To avert getting blown away by a Bob-omb, hold down on the control stick like you would when dodging a fireball. You can also throw eggs away by using the B button. Sometimes, there is a big Purple Piranha Plant that will appear in the center Warp Pipe. You can use whatever you want to get points against it, whether it be Eggs or Bob-ombs. However, it also shoots Fireballs at all players no matter what to impede their progress. When time expires, the player with the most points is declared the winner.

[edit] Game Levels

  • Mushroom Level - Earn at least 30 points and win the game.
  • Flower Level - Get at least 45 points and win the game.
  • Star Level - Have at least 60 points and win the game.
  • Special Level - Have the most points to win. This level has a 90-second time limit.

[edit] Trivia

The pipes that the Piranha Plants are in with Super Sluggers are very similar to the Piranha Pipes kart from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.
