A Sparrowmint engaged in a fight with the Sweetle.

A fight is a battle between two Piñatas. Fights occur when two Piñatas have a conflict, and can also happen if they just don't like each other. There are many species which are natural rivals like the Barkbark and the Kittyfloss which have a baked in conflict, and will fight if they run into each other. A fight can also be manually triggered by tapping a piñata with the shovel repeatedly. A piñata that is about to fight will turn red. If you want to stop a fight, you could try hitting the piñata with a shovel or watering them with the watering can, but this can lower their happiness, and sometimes this method will not work. You could try building a fence around their enclosures to stop them from coming close enough to fight. If you have a Bonboon in your garden, they can help to stop fights (but not all of them). A Sour Bonboon will randomly cause fights for other Piñatas.

In Viva Piñata and Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise, piñatas fight using species dependent missiles. For example, the Smelba fires socks at the opponent, while the Whirlm will fire fish hooks instead.

In Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise fights will always be stopped if you use the watering can on one of the piñatas before the health gauges show up. A fight will always occur if another piñata is attempting to eat another one, and the predator will always win the fight.
