Bungee Piranhas, are purple Piranha Plants that use their stem as a bungee cord. Their only appearance is in Yoshi's Island DS. Bungee Piranha Plants are very similar to Elasto-Piranhas. They hang on ceilings, waiting for their prey to come along. They then bungee down, attempting to grab their prey with their mouths. A bigger version called the Big Bungee Piranha appears as World 2's Boss in the eighth level, Big Bungee Piranha's Lair.
Bungee Piranhas greatly resemble and possibly influenced the Prickly Piranha Plant from Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.
