Piranha Plants, have skeletal structures, teeth and respiratory systems, and are closer to the animal kingdom, particularly sauropsida.


  • Argument 1: In many of the games we see Piranha Plants actively seeking out prey, their teeth also suggest a carnivorous diet and predatory behaviour.

  • Argument 2: Bone Piranha Plants have four cervical vertebrae, indicating they are vertebrates.

  • Argument 3: Piranha Plant leaves show movement and dexterity, and many have legs for locomotion.

  • Argument 4: Ptooies can expel air, hinting at a lung-like respiratory system.

  • Argument 5: Poison Piranha Plants produce purple globs, possibly from structures akin to parotid glands in animals.

  • Argument 7: Dino Piranhas have a sauropsid-like body, clawed toes, and ‘petals’ that could be protofeathers, their name also alludes to their dinosaur-like traits.
