Piranhabons, also known as Goros, are large Piranha Plants covered in brown goop found only in Super Mario Sunshine. They resemble the head of Petey Piranha, and they roll along the ground, leaving behind a trail of goop as they do so. They can and will run over Mario without stopping if he is in their way. If Mario sprays them with FLUDD, he can clean the goop off them, though they will still leave goop behind as they travel. When jumped on, they will splatter on the ground, leaving behind a puddle of goop.
The Piranhabons' name comes from the name of chocolate balls known as bonbons, which Piranhabons slightly resemble.
