A Ghost Piranha
|Variant of||Piranha Plant|
|First appearance||Yoshi's Island DS (2006)|
Ghost Piranhas, also named Polterpiranhas, 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.
