Jumping Pumpkin Plants, also named Pumpkin Plants, are enemies that replace Jumping Piranha Plants in Super Mario World once Special World has been completed. They act the same as Jumping Piranha Plants, and their main difference is that their bud is encased within a Jack-o-Lantern. Jumping Pumpkin Plants repeatedly launch themselves in and out of a pipe. They can be defeated by either Fire Mario or Fire Luigi's fireballs or by touching it while under the effects of a Starman.
A Jumping Pumpkin Plant is among the enemies featured in the special ending. In the Game Boy Advance remake, Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2, they share a name with their parent species, Jumping Piranha Plant, which either indicates or alleges that they are the same species.
