Petey Piranha is a large mutant Piranha Plant from the Mario franchise, in which he debuted in Super Mario Sunshine, as a boss. Petey Piranha has frequently appeared in Mario spinoff titles, including a few of the sports ones developed by Square Enix. Petey Piranha also appears in the crossover title Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, namely as Piranha Plant's Final Smash.
Mario Hoops 3-on-3
Two Petey Piranhas appear in the Daisy Garden court as the baskets in Mario Hoops 3-on-3 and try to keep anyone from making a slam dunk. They fall asleep approximately every 30 seconds, making dunks possible during that time. If a team dunks three times in the first half without letting their opponents score, a blue seed appears in a ? Panel. If the player's team takes it and wins the basketball game, a secret court called Malboro Garden is unlocked.
Mario Sports Mix
In Mario Sports Mix, Petey Piranha returns in Daisy Garden. During a basketball match, Petey acts as the basketball hoop like in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. During a dodgeball match, Petey stands on the side of the playing area and spits goop that acts as obstacles to the players. Petey also has his own party game titled Feed Petey, where the characters have to feed as much fruit to him as possible within the time limit.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Petey Piranha appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of Piranha Plant's Final Smash of the same name. His appearance is derived from Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, including the cages he wields, though he has a brighter color scheme more comparable to the mainline Mario games. He hops along the stage while swinging his cages, and is able to trap opponents inside them. At the end of the Final Smash, Petey Piranha breathes fire and slams the cages into the ground.
There also two primary Grab type spirits of Petey Piranha, using artwork from Mario Super Sluggers and Mario Strikers Charged. The former spirit is an enhanced form of the Nipper Plant spirit and makes the user temporarily giant at the start of a battle.
On Palutena's Temple, both Petey Piranha and Petea Piranha are mentioned briefly by Viridi during Palutena's Guidance dialogue for Piranha Plant.
