A three-dimensional nonlinear Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (K-P) wave equation is derived to discuss the solitons in multicomponent plasma contaminated with negative ions. A new formalism of the simple wave solution method is developed for finding the soliton behaviors caused by the presence of negative ions in plasmas. It is seen that the nonlinear wave equation leads, in some cases, to an ordinary differential equation and a straight way for solving the soliton propagation in plasmas. The overall observations describe the natures of compressive and rarefactive solitons along with the shock-like wave caused by the interaction of negative ions. Also discussed are the possible controls of the scenarios of soliton behaviors. Moreover it is believed, from present investigations, that the observations of collapses or explosions in solitons could enhance the understanding of the soliton phenomena in laboratory and space plasmas.
