This Mario papercraft is a Piranha Plant (Piranha), large, carnivorous plant encountered throughout the Mario series, the paper model was created by aardonix. Piranha Plants are seemingly based-off Venus Flytraps, eating anything that approaches them.
The head of a Piranha Plant is most commonly either red or green with multiple other colors. Originally, Piranha Plants were found exclusively in pipes, either darting-out and biting anything near or remaining still and spitting fireballs. Currently, Piranha Plants can be found both in and out of pipes and their fire-breathing ability is now rarely used.
Despite being plants, Piranha Plants have been depicted as being sentient and capable of speech in a few appearances, though unlike several other enemies in the Mario series, they have never been shown forming societies. Piranha Plant characters such as Petey Piranha, Piranha Bean and Dino Piranha, among others, reveal that some Piranha Plants can have animal-like bodies, making them capable of walking. Mom Piranha, Dino Piranha and Peewee Piranha are all depicted hatching from eggs, suggesting that Piranha Plants may be oviparious. For more information of Piranha Plant please click here.
