The Piranha is a multiple tier animal, ranging from tier 1 (1 piranha) to tier 10 (10 piranhas). It is based off of its real-life counterpart, the Red-bellied piranha, Pygocentrus nattereri.

Mechanics[ | ]

  • There are no animals that evolve into piranha as they are a tier 1 animal.
  • Choosing to evolve into piranha while playing as piranha will give you an extra piranha.
  • Piranhas drop meat and a skeleton (if tier 8 and up) on death, but only if it is the last one remaining.
  • Tier 1 piranhas evolve into all tier 2 animals, and tier 2 Piranhas.
    • Tier 2 piranhas evolve into all tier 3 animals, and tier 3 Piranhas
    • Tier 3 piranhas evolve into all tier 4 animals, and tier 4 Piranhas
    • Tier 4 piranhas evolve into all tier 5 animals, and tier 5 Piranhas
    • Tier 5 piranhas evolve into all tier 6 animals, and tier 6 Piranhas
    • Tier 6 piranhas evolve into all tier 7 animals, and tier 7 Piranhas
    • Tier 7 piranhas evolve into all tier 8 animals, and tier 8 Piranhas
    • Tier 8 piranhas evolve into Manatees & Piranhas
    • Tier 9 piranhas evolve into tier 10 piranhas.
    • Tier 10 piranhas do not evolve into any animal.

Abilities[ | ]

Passive Abilities[ | ]

  • You get one piranha per evolution tier, up to 10 piranhas.
    • These piranhas cannot attack each other.
  • You have a piranha meter, which fills up as you eat food. When it fills up completely, you will regain a piranha.

Active Abilities[ | ]

  • Boosting will not make you dash, but instead increases your speed by +%100 for 2 seconds. You can still airboost.
  • Charging your boost fills up your piranha meter by 50% of its maximum amount. You cannot restore a piranha with a charged boost if you have 1 less than the max. piranhas available for your evolution tier.
  • Each Piranha has its own individual boost bar. You can boost when any of the Piranhas has a full bar, and boosting resets the bars of all Piranhas to zero.

Suitable Biomes[ | ]

  • The suitable biome for the piranha is the swamp (shallow, warm / cold, freshwater biomes).
    • If a piranha enters a saltwater biome, it will lose salinity.
    • If a piranha enters the surface of a saltwater biome, it will lose oxygen and not regenerate salinity.
    • If a piranha enters a deep, saltwater biome, it will lose pressure and salinity.
    • If a piranha enters a deep, freshwater biome, it will lose pressure.

Diet[ | ]

This is a complete list of food that piranhas can eat.

The food that piranhas can eat are determined by its tier.

  • At tier 7, piranhas can no longer eat algae and yellow algae.
  • At tier 8, piranhas can no longer eat dam food.
  • At tier 9, piranhas can no longer eat apples and berries.

Hiding Places[ | ]

This is a complete list of terrain that piranhas can hide in. (Note: More to be added by others, eg. Sponge)

The terrain that piranhas can hide are determined by its tier.

  • At tier 4, piranhas can no longer hide in anemone, volcanoes, and broken trees.
  • At tier 9, piranhas can no longer hide in the shipwreck and abandoned house.
Name Summary Image

Volcano Generates on the arctic and deeeep floors. Produces volcano food, which can be eaten. Tier 1 to tier 3 animals can hide here. Volcano
Shipwreck One shipwreck always appears on one of the dirt islands that border the ocean and deeeep. Tier 1 to tier 9 animals can hide here. Produces bubbles that can be eaten. Shipwreck

Strategy[ | ]

Using[ | ]

  • At tier 10 (max of 10 piranhas), you have a collective health of 3000, twice that of a Whale.
  • Your main strategy should be to pin unsuspecting players to terrain and shred their health. You can also just boost towards your prey, however against higher tier animals this can fail.
  • Stick to the estuary, as you'll find many targets to attack there. You can also retreat to the swamp if low on health / piranhas, as to not be ravaged by tier 10s.
  • Avoid animals with area of effect damage, such as the Basking Shark or the Lionfish. Their AOE damage will damage ALL of your piranhas, and makes you easy for them to kill. You should also avoid tough to eat animals like the Atlantic Torpedo or Leatherback Turtle, as their abilities will make it hard for you to kill them.
    • Targets with no boosts or low health are easy to pick off, so you can go after them.
  • Attacking other piranhas isn't recommended, to an extent. You won't be able to fight against them easily with the bunch of damage numbers blocking your view of piranha health.
  • Remoras will NOT deal 100 damage to Piranhas, but will kill them instantly. Keep this in mind.
  • In PD, Piranhas can be chosen regardless of what Tier 10 Animal you chose. However, you won't be able to evolve to Tier 8 Piranhas unless you chose Piranhas.
    • Piranhas can be great attackers in PD, as you can simply rush the enemy and deal significant damage, before getting away.
    • Piranhas also make for good defenders in PD, simply surround the clam / pearl.
  • Don't choose Piranhas in 1v1, as the terrain will make it incredibly hard to deal sufficient damage.

Countering[ | ]

  • Use animals with AOE attacks, like Lionfish or Basking Shark to crumple Piranhas quickly.
  • If you aren't playing an animal that can counter Piranhas, you can facetank the Piranhas while rotating yourself in a way that damages multiple piranhas quickly, which can quickly lower the count of the Piranhas.
  • If you are a lightweight animal (800 HP at most), you shouldn't try to kill Piranhas, but you can run from them.
    • GPOs are the exception, as they can use poison clouds to greatly damage Piranhas.

Skins[ | ]

Skins are cosmetics used to change an animal's looks, or sometimes, an animal’s biome or size statistics slightly. The table below shows the list of approved skins that can be used for the Piranha.

Realistic Skins[ | ]

Realistic skins can be used in every time of the year. They are mostly based on real-life species, or adjectives.

Notes[ | ]

  • The Piranha is the only creature in the game that is available in many tiers.
  • The Piranha is the only creature in the game able to be hurt by tier 10 animals at tier one.
  • When evolving to a higher tier from a lower tier piranha, if you do not select piranha at this stage, the piranha-chain is broken, which means that you can no longer evolve into a piranha again (unless you die and restart of course).
