Species origin Piranha Plant

The Dry Piranha Plant (also called a Bone Piranha Plant) is a subspecies of Piranha Plant debuting in New Super Mario Bros. 2. They are skeletal versions of their relatives with some changes, such as: a grayish cranium, holes rather than spots, greenish-gray lips, vertebrae instead of a plant stalk and grey, dark grey leaves that appear dead.


New Super Mario Bros. 2

Besides these graphic changes, its attack patterns appear the same than those of a regular Piranha Plant. However, unlike normal Piranha Plants, they are immune to fireballs. They can be defeated by a Super Leaf tail spin, Star or a Gold Flower, however. They are only found in Fortresses and Castles.

Mario Party: Island Tour

Dry Piranha Plants also appear in Mario Party: Island Tour on the Bowser's Peculiar Peak board. If the player lands on a space that moves them forward a number of spaces, the Dry Piranha Plant appears, chews them up, and then throws them forward.

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Dry Piranha Plants appear as obstacles in Bone-Dry Dunes. They act as normal Piranha Plants in the Mario Kart games and attack any drivers foolish enough to get too close.
