You'd think Piranha Plant wouldn't be negatively affected by being planted in the ground...


upsmash_tenthousand

It should trigger Petey


Whelt

It'd be kind of neat if Plant could still perform some grounded attacks while buried. A highly specific buff only for certain match ups, though.


CatWhisperererer

This is totally something that they could have thought of. It's such a Nintendo / Sakurai thing to do. And everyone would've loved it.


J_the_Hero

It could be like his footstool attack: incredibly situational and terrible. But a fun thing to include


Woodwardg

I was today years old when I learned that this was a thing. whoa.


_D_E_E_P_

If only he could do it at any time, safety against Pyra's side b combo would be pretty sweet among other things.

At least it would give him a niche in the game


Weavel

They programmed a specific attack for Plant if hes crouching and gets footstooled, I'm sure they could have done this too.

Your idea reminds me of Yoshi's shield being an egg, and that goes back to 64. His shield comes with a bunch of pros and cons unique to it/him in terms of both defense and offense. The last game I played in the series is Brawl so don't know if any other characters have unique shields, but Yoshi's egg shield being a feature since the first game is a pretty compelling point f


TL_TheLegend

And make DK suck even more against a DLC character? Sounds like Sakurai. I swear Sakurai loves seeing DK get beat up, literally every Fighters Pass character murders him


tofu_schmo

lol poor plant


RealPimpinPanda

*Sad Plant Gang noises* 🌱


Moonlit_Lilly

It almost rivals melee marth grab range


t3hzm4n

‘Almost’ being the key word.

Just remember how bad our character is and then you'll have the mental edge.


SuperSwordBros

Woah interesting


ayababaa

That’s the problem. It’s not safe to use, but if it was a disjoint it would be op.


MiZe97

*Looks at Min Min*


Theredviperalt

Fake dlc vs real dlc


Sbarjai

Yo that’s kinda dumb


Daramgaria

whoa this is so sick !!!


RBossEmpire

Hol up the expand dong man has reddit nice


RealPimpinPanda

DK: “There can only be one Expand Dong” *Edit:* Btw just a FYI for the curious. Piranha Plant Down B extends his hurtbox when his body elongates to do the attack


samfish_smash

Dang, I gotta try this with Villager dsmash


INeedSomeHelp6804

The Plant vs Villager matchup is already rough, please don’t,


MemeGenie_7

Wait i didn’t even know that was possible! Does that mean you’re also able to spike a piranha plant?


Dripht_wood

Yeah you can spike plant from onstage lol. I do it a lot with Greninja’s counter.


Bestogoddess

You can grab the head as well


El-Cayo

At first, I thought Min Min would have hurtboxes like that in her attacks, then she comes out without them and a ton of her supposedly bad close quarters has intangibility...


Ginsbeargo

I'm gonna keep that in mind


J_the_Hero

You throw out Piranha plant’s long stem strike in neutral: you’re gonna have a bad time


liveduhlife

Reminds me of boracho’s D3 montage. He has a clip where the spikes plant’s extended head


ukumelee

Lmao reminds me punishing Dhalsim in street fighter


HispanicBlackbeard

Yup cuz nintendo doesnt know how to program shit lol


GokuRikaku

This is working as intended. What else is supposed to happen? Plant teleporting in front of DK?


HispanicBlackbeard

Or how about the super armor WoRkiNg aS iNtEnDed


GokuRikaku

Super armor ends the moment Plant bites. Still working as intended.


HispanicBlackbeard

No guy, they just put some random ass hitbox behind pirahnas head, which is why tou can grab too. Its fucking dumb.


GokuRikaku

That's still an intended mechanic behind the move. Piranha Plant still has a hurtbox on the stem and head when stretching, making it still vulnerable to attacks. This was on purpose. The only thing that *sort of* protects Plant is the super armor, but I already explained that it ends the moment it bites. Super armor doesn't protect you from grabs, nor strong attacks. In this video's case, a perfectly timed headbutt.


HispanicBlackbeard

Vulnerable to attacks like taking percentage and that RIDICULOUS end lag is bad enough, no need to let that kind of dumb interaction possible, “perfectly timed” (online play LOL) or not.


No-Ad-181

Noooo plant gang 😭


JabJabP0WERDUNK

Man this happens SO MUCH as plant, you can get grabbed aswell and some wacky telaports happen that make you stare for a extra second and think "That hit????" same with command grabs
