Lava Buds are enemies featured in Paper Mario.

During the boss battle with Lava Piranha, the giant plant uses two of these dangerous guys to aid him in battle, allowing him three attacks each turn. After deafeating the giant monster, Lava Piranha sinks back into the pit of lava behind him, then suddenly comes back out, covered in fire. These two buds will also catch on fire, making them even more of a threat as well. However, this makes them vulnerable to water and ice attacks like Lava Piranha himself.
