They somewhat resemble humans; however, Piantas are much larger and can have pink, green, brown, purple, red, orange, yellow, or blue skin. Piantas also have small palm trees growing out of the top of their heads, indicating that they may have evolved from tropical plants. Also, Super Mario Sunshine's description of them said the palm trees were to provide shade from the intense heat on Isle Delfino. Typically, Piantas wear grass skirts or grass dresses even if they are boys.
Other Appearances Edit
Piantas are generally laid back and friendly. Beyond Super Mario Sunshine, Piantas have appeared as a recurring species in many spin-off games and also appeared in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Recently, Piantas have been spotted in Sunshine Beach in Super Mario Galaxy 2.
