Tips for Clearing “Take Out Piranha Plants”

Recommended Setting

Turn off Auto-Item

Turning off the Auto-item will help you save the item you need to take out the piranha plants. Make sure that this option is turned off to take them out easily!

Turn off Manual Drift

You can aim at the piranha plants easier by turning off the Manual Drift in the settings. It will also show an arrow, which will serve as your pointer, showing where the item will go.

Race on 50cc Speed

Before starting the race, make sure to change the speed to 50cc. 50cc speed will give you more time to aim for the piranha plants, and it will also make the opponents less agressive.

Another good item you can use are Bob-ombs. It has a large area-of-effect and can take out several piranha plants if used correctly.

Mega Mushroom

You can also use Mega Mushrooms and bump into the piranha plants to take them out. However, you'll have to turn-off the Smart Steering option in the settings screen as the piranha plants are mostly off the track.
