Elasto-Piranhas (Japanese: ドカンパックン Dokan Pakkun) are a sub-species of Piranha Plant that have elastic stems which can extend and contract; they appear in the game Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. This variety of Piranha Plant lives in Toadwood Forest.

In battle, an Elasto-Piranha attacks by first extending its elastic stem to the sky. To determine who it attacks, the neck stretches to the top of the top screen if it will hit Mario and halfway at the top screen if it will hit Luigi. Next, the Elasto-Piranha shoots fireballs at its chosen enemy. These fireballs can be jumped over. Every attack that the player uses on the side of the pipe deals one damage to the Elasto-Piranha, however attacking such as jumping on the top of the pipe deals more damage. The height and ground position of an Elasto-Piranha continually varies throughout a battle, meaning the time it takes for a fireball to reach its enemy also changes.
