Amazing Grace is...a Piranha Plant from McDonald's Happy Meal.

Did you know?

A Piranha Plant, known as Packun Flower (パックンフラワー Pakkun Furawā) in Japan, is an enemy portrayed as a leafy, green stalk topped Venus Flytrap with a white-spotted red or green globe and sharp teeth reminiscent of piranhas. Another type of Piranha Plant that appears in Super Mario Bros. 3 is the Ptooie, a walking Piranha Plant that exhales air to lift a spiked ball into the air to hinder Mario's progress in the game. Piranha Plants usually come up from pipes, but sometimes they may also simply stick up from the ground and in rare cases even walk freely on its own roots. In Super Mario World, there is a variant of Piranha Plant that jumps out of pipes before retreating into them again. Super Mario Sunshine introduces a large Piranha Plant character: Petey Piranha. In Super Mario Galaxy, two stronger versions of a Piranha Plant, Dino Piranha and Fiery Dino Piranha, appear. Another Piranha Plant boss, Peewee Piranha, appears in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Some Piranha Plants spit fireballs and are known as Fire Piranha Plant (previously known as Venus Firetrap).
