The Evil Mushroom is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Adventure Story. It appears primarily in jungle areas, such as Lankyroot Jungle (in EBF4).

The Evil Mushroom is a semi-sentient plant similar to the Mad Cactus and the Haunted Tree. In EBF4, it appears as a large blue mushroom. Holes in its front create a simple face consisting of two eyes and a mouth; the eyes are slightly mismatched, and the mouth has small protrusions resembling teeth.

In Adventure Story, the Evil Mushroom lacks eyes, and it is colored white and red, much like a normal mushroom.



Much like its fellow killer plants (Haunted Trees and Mad Cacti), the Evil Mushroom is a low to moderate threat on its own, having several elemental weaknesses, no resistances, and one immunity. Its main threat comes from its ability to Stun and Weaken the party with its special attacks, leaving them vulnerable to other enemies.

In addition to its elemental weaknesses, the Evil Mushroom can be largely neutralized as a threat by inflicting Syphon or Berserk upon it, which restricts it to a basic melee attack, making it much more manageable.

Adventure Story

In Adventure Story, the Evil Mushroom is a low-level enemy that appears in the game's first two worlds. It's a stationary enemy that occasionally spits a large poison bubble at Matt when it notices him. The bubbles produced by the Evil Mushroom are slow-moving and can be deflected with Matt's weapon.
