Big Piranha Plants (formerly known as Super Piranha Plants) are enemies in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are not to be confused with Piranhacus Giganticus. They are large sub-species of Piranha Plants, however, not as large as Piranhacus Giganticus. They are not found in Warp Pipes because of their enormous size. Big Piranha Plants chomp constantly even when the player is not near them. They appear mostly in World 6. Because of their large size, they can be very difficult to avoid and often can be annoying after dying because you touched it. 3 Fireballs from a Fire Flower takes this big plant enemy down, releasing three Coins to collect. AS mentioned earlier, any contact with a Big Piranha Plant, damages the player, making him lose on form, or kills him if he is at his small size.
