My favorite Mario character
Petey Piranha is an abnormally large Piranha plant. His first appearance was in Super Mario Sunshine, and since then he has gained much popularity and has since become a regular boss in Mario titles. He also consistently appears in sports games and spin-offs. Petey Piranha is thought to be a loyal follower of Bowser, but this is undetermined. It is quite likely that he is the ruler of his kind. He has multiple special powers that set him apart from normal Piranha Plants, including spitting Goop and flying. Petey Piranha also appeared as an unlockable racer in Mario Kart :Double Dash with King Boo as his partner, hinting they have some sort of relationship. The pair were unlocked by beating the Star Cup in Mirror mode. Unlike the other racers who had their own special items, both Petey and King Boo had no special items of their own. Instead, they had the ability to use any special item in the entire game. Petey Piranha's personal kart, unlocked at the same time as him, is the piranha pipes, a vehicle assembled out of the Piranha Plant's trademark, green tubing. As with all heavyweight racers, he could only race in the Heavy karts.
