Naval Piranha (Japanese version: Big Pakkun (ビッグパックン Biggu Pakkun)) is a boss appearing in the Yoshi series of games. She is the sub-leader of Piranha Plants. She is known to dwell in the water.


Yoshi series

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Kamek shocked by the loss of Naval Piranha.

Naval Piranha first appeared in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island as the second boss of the third world in the level Naval Piranha's Castle.

When starting battle, Naval Piranha is seen to be an ordinary Piranha Plant til Kamek comes along and grows her to a gigantic size. Then, Naval Piranha attempts to use her gigantic tentacles with Naval Buds at the ends and head to injure Blue Yoshi. Nipper Plants also appear in battle for Yoshi to swallow and make eggs.

In order for Blue Yoshi to get back at her, he must heave an egg at her bumpy spot with two bandages put perpendicular across each other to form an X. However, an egg needs to be hit against the wall as the bumpy spot doesn't go up to Blue Yoshi. After a hit, she attempts to headbutt Blue Yoshi. Three times total results in Naval Piranha being defeated. Then, access is open to the fourth world.

A famous cheat (which is carried over to the remake) allows Naval Piranha to be defeated before battle and being enlargened. To do this, Blue Yoshi must heave an egg at her, but not stand on the platform where the battle takes place. Then Kamek will come and say "OH MY!!!". This technically makes Naval Piranha the easiest boss in the game.
