Pianta's basic appearance
Affiliation Isle Delfino, Mario, Noki, Toad, Toadsworth
First appearance Super Mario Sunshine (2002)

Pianta are a sentient species of people found on Isle Delfino in Super Mario Sunshine. They somewhat resemble humans, however, Pianta are much larger and can have pink, green, brown, purple, red, orange, yellow, or blue skin. Pianta also have small palm trees growing out of the top of their heads, indicating that they may have come from tropical plants, which is also alluded to by their name, as pianta means "plant" in Italian.

Creation and DevelopmentEdit

Typically, the Pianta wear grass skirts or grass dresses. The Pianta are generally laid back, quite strong, and friendly. However, they also have a fairly small temper. Besides Super Mario Sunshine, the Pianta have appeared as a recurring species in many spin-off games and also appeared in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.


Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up Edit

Pianta appears as an unlockable character in Mario Kart: Mega Mash-Up. He is a large racer and his karts and bikes will follow a light blue and green (and sometimes a light green) colour scheme. You can unlock him by getting Gold on the 50cc Banana Cup.

He will do the following to each stat in whatever kart or bike he rides:

  • Speed: +0
  • Weight: +3
  • Acceleration: +3
  • Handling: +0

Mario Kart NX Edit

Mario Kart NX introduces the light-blue Pianta as a heavyweight unlockable racer. Pianta is one of the heaviest racers in the game, and is classified as part of the "Cruiser" class because of this. He is unlocked by beating the Staff Ghosts on all Flower Cup courses: Mario Circuit, Moo Moo Ranch, Delfino Tour, Boo Woods, and Camp Piranha.

Outside of being a playable character, both male and female Piantas appear as spectators on various courses, and one appears on various advertisements for Isle Delfino.
