General information
Variant of Piranha Plant
First appearance Yoshi's Island DS (2006)

Ghost Piranhas, also named Polterpiranhas,[1] are winged, cobalt blue, ghost Piranha Plants found in Yoshi's Island DS. They move up and down or side to side. They also hang upside down and do not have a stem. If the player does not have enough time to react, they will eat Yoshi whole for about 2 seconds, leaving Yoshi's current baby floating around until Yoshi gets out to capture it. They can be defeated by throwing a Yoshi Egg at them or by having Baby DK do his dash attack on them. Spitting another enemy such as a Boo Guy into them can also defeat them.
