Ptooies are a sub-species of Piranha Plant that have appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Super Princess Peach. Unlike most Piranha Plants, Ptooies are completely mobile, walking about on leafy feet. The Ptooie is notable for its ability to spit spiked balls from its mouth. It also has extraordinary breath control as it uses its breath to suspend a spiked ball in the air as it walks. Mario cannot defeat a Ptooie by jumping on it, but can defeat it with just about any power-up, such as Fire Flowers or the Hammer Bro Suit.
