Frost Piranhas are sky-blue Piranhas that appear in the Paper Mario series.


Paper Mario

In Paper Mario, they're larger than normal, and are encountered on the way to Starborn Valley; they're also in Shiver Mountain, just not in such heavy abundance. Along with being one of the strongest of its species, they can breathe ice.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

They reappear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door in the Fahr Outpost. Inconceivably, they're even stronger than before. To the ecstasy of the player, they can no longer breathe as coldly as they could. However, it gets its own back by biting Mario and company, which can still freeze them if they're not performing a Guard move upon the time of launch.

Super Paper Mario

In Super Paper Mario, Frost Piranhas are only found in The Underwhere. Frost Piranha's only appear from Warp Pipes and attack using ice breath that can freeze a character. The Frost Piranha's can be mainly defeated by using Luigi's Super Jump move at them at an angle. Frost Piranha's may also drop Ice Storms when defeated.

Tattle This is a Frost Piranha. Frost Piranhas are frozen Piranha Plants. Max HP: 10, Attack Power: 4, Defense Power: 0 They'll try to freeze you with their icy breath. You'll be at their mercy if they freeze you, so you'd better try to immobilize them right away. Ice attacks won't work--they love ice! Fire attacks, though...
