They are quite similar to Cave Bats in terms of attack pattern, damage and armor, but move slower and are limited to underwater. Due to their low HP Piranhas can be easily one shot by most mid-tier weapons.Terraria - Piranha Plus WATERFALL GLITCH(02:36)
Piranhas can be found most places, some include the Jungle (both on the surface and in the Underground Jungle), in caves, and The Underworld (in player-made water pools) Piranhas spawn in water, no matter the size of the pond or lake. However, they also might spawn in lava, dying immediately afterwards.
Piranhas seem to spawn in groups of about three if given sufficient time (about fifteen seconds). Piranhas appear to spawn in larger amounts in both the Surface Jungle and the Underground Jungle. Although they can be spawned anywhere else via the Piranha Statue. Piranhas also possess the ability to exit water briefly to attack you.
Piranhas also seem to spawn more at night than during the day. This may be because the world's tendency to be more evil at night, or to do with the massive amount of slimes not spawning. Piranhas will only move to attack if you are in a body of water (not necessarily the same body of water).
