Battle

The Mom Piranha is a very tricky boss coming into the battle with many tricks and attacks. The Mom Piranha mainly attacks by spitting fireballs at Mario and Luigi and trying to swipe at them with her arms. Also in the battle, she can have up to two Piranha Plants to aid her in battle and if they are the same color as her, she will heal. It should also be noted when the Mom Piranha is attacked directly and there are Piranha Plants present, they will immeditely attack Mario and Luigi.

Tips

The Firebrand and Thunderhand are two very useful techniques in this fight. If the Mom Piranha is red, then Luigi should attack with the Thunderhand. If she is blue, Mario should attack with the Firebrand. It is also wise not to have two Piranha Plants be the same color as the Mom Piranha heals the more the Piranha Plants are her color. This means that one of the Piranha Plants should be red while the other is blue.

Trivia

  • It is unknown if the Mom Piranha created the Piranha Bean that will be fought later in the game.
  • Mom Piranha looks like Megasmilax and Lava Piranha from previous Mario RPGs.
  • In the US version of the game, if the Mom Piranha is defeated when she is blue, she gives out no coins.
