The River Piranha Plant is a species of the Piranha Plants and first appeared in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are only found in World 5 and only appear in rivers.

They blow their spike ball over them to hit anyone who passes by. Eventually they lower their spike ball right over them allowing players to pass. The only way they can be defeated is by the Ice Flower, Fire Flower, or Starman.

They later appear in New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe using the same technique.
