Piranha Plant has been in the hands of players for a week now in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but it turns out some people have been using the carnivorous plant in a completely different fighting game since its initial reveal.

A number of Soul Calibur 6 players have taken to the game's Create a Soul mode to carefully craft their own versions of the Piranha Plant with a surprising amount of variety and accuracy.

Japanese artist Scagyoniku took to Twitter to post their devilish creation of an extremely buff version of the Mario baddie wielding a polka-dotted take on Astaroth's ax. The head of the creature looks almost too good to be real with the custom objects added to the face to make accurate lips while it even has wings as its leaves / petals and pots that are made up of boots to top it all off.

YouTube content creator ParagonV5 showed off a different — and somehow more unsettling version — of the Piranha Plant with a head made up of two shells and Voldo's katars as petals to go along with the character's always interesting move set. They even set him up against a disturbing take on Kirby to make it a real Smash Bros-inspired match.

Weeks before the fighter was even announced as DLC for Smash Ultimate, Twitter user Tink posted yet another version of the plant with the shell head and green wrappings all over its body though this one includes a pipe by way of the custom objects once again.

It never ceases to amaze us what creative individuals can come up with using Soul Calibur's tools given enough time. You can check out all three versions of the custom Piranha Plants taken from Soul Calibur 6 below plus its battle against the "human" version of Kirby after the jump.
