Piranha Plant (SSBU)/Grab
Piranha Plant reaches out with the leaf farthest from the camera. While it is among the fastest grabs in the game, Piranha Plant's grabs are also very short ranged, making it difficult to get grabs in neutral without conditioning an opponent to shield, and weakens its usage out of shield as well. Despite this, Piranha Plant's grabs are still important, as its down throw provides combos, its up throw can lead to kills, and both its forward and back throws are exceptional at setting up edgeguard or ledgetrap scenarios. Piranha Plant also possesses one of the best roll-cancelled boost grabs in the game, allowing dash grab to go much farther than usual, being easier to punish with or combo out of moves like forward aerial.
Piranha Plant's grabs are also important during ledgetrapping: in addition to negating shields, Piranha Plant's pummels deal additional damage when combined with Poison Breath, which can help up throws kill far earlier. While pivot grabs may not provide exceptional range, they have less end lag than dash grabs and can still be used to catch opponents who attempt to land near Piranha Plant. Its pivot grab possesses no real use due to its very short range.
