The ten mushrooms in Plants vs. Zombies

The first 8 mushrooms in Plants vs. Zombies 2, in the order that they appear in the Almanac.

A mushroom is a fleshy, spore-bearing, fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. The mushrooms' projectiles are spores and fumes.

In Plants vs. Zombies, they are active at Night and sleep during the Day, but can be woken up by having a Coffee Bean planted on them.

In Plants vs. Zombies 2, mushrooms do not sleep during day anymore. Five of them from Plants vs. Zombies have returned (Sun-shroom, Puff-shroom, Fume-shroom, and Magnet-shroom), and Hypno-shroom has become a gem premium plant. There are four new mushrooms, Spore-shroom, obtained in Neon Mixtape Tour, Perfume-shroom, obtained in Jurassic Marsh, Shadow-shroom, obtained in Modern Day, and Toadstool, which is a premium.

In the Chinese version, there are new mushrooms not in the international version, including Cryo-shroom, and Pyro-shroom, which require Puzzle Pieces to unlock, Magic-shroom, which is a monthly special plant, and Flat-shroom, a Steam Ages plant.

In Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, mushrooms serve the role of the aggressive fighters for the PvZH Kabloom Icon.pngKabloom heroes, but also have various uses. New mushrooms include Buff-Shroom, Punish-Shroom, Grow-Shroom, Button Mushroom, and Sportacus.
