The piranha plant, (or "common piranha plant", to distinguish it from the other species) is a fictional carnivorous plant that originated from the Super Mario universe.


They are distinguished by their sharp teeth, red color, white spots, white lips and green stems. Strangely, they have a skeletal system, despite being plants.
