Doom-shroom (stylized as "Doom-Shroom" in Battle for Neighborville) is a Spawnable Plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It was first added in the Garden Variety DLC update. It can be obtained from sticker packs. When zombies approach it, it uses its attack, Doom: an extremely powerful gigantic explosion that deals 200 damage. However, the drawback to this is that the Doom-shroom will then hide and become vulnerable while it "recharges" for about 30 seconds. Its zombie counterpart is the Explody Bot.
Doom-shroom had a functionally identical variant in the original Garden Warfare called the Cariboom released during the Feastivus event.
A legendary variant was created and was available from Rux called the Perfume Shroom. Unlike the other legendary consumables, however, the Perfume Shroom is, like the Cariboom, a reskin of the default Doom-shroom. Its attack is called the Perfume.
Garden Warfares 1 & 2
CLOSE RANGE: EXPLOSIVE
Doom-shrooms are extremely damaging but take time to regenerate.
Some say the Cariboom is an ancient reindeer plant. We think he's just wearing a hat.
CLOSE RANGE: EXPLOSIVE
This lovely smelling shroom is dolled up and ready to go!
Battle for Neighborville
Explodes damaging zombies in proximity, but defenseless when regenerating.
This should be planted near the garden, as many zombies will focus on it and may not notice the Doom-shroom. However, a drawback is that when it is about to detonate, it will make a loud and quite noticeable sound, which can alarm some zombies. When it detonates, it will be vulnerable for about 30 seconds, so you should protect it until it is ready to detonate again. Doom-shroom is recommended to use in Night Maps. While it does not do much, its dark color will allow it to make it harder to see. This will surprise and kill any zombie that does not suspect a Doom-shroom to be in a flower pot.
- Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, it does not leave behind a crater or destroy its flower pot when it detonates.
- It's Feastivus variant is a reference to reindeer (the animals that pull Santa Clause's sleigh), specifically Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
- It levitates before exploding.
- It also emits a whistling sound while levitating right before an explosion, unlike in the first game.
- It also emits a deep laugh.
- Unlike the first game, it does not disappear upon detonation, instead remaining until destroyed by a zombie.
- Its Legendary version, Perfume Shroom, almost shares it's name with a plant from Plants vs. Zombies 2, despite doing completely different things.
- However, the name of this version is missing the dash between "Perfume" and "Shroom", as well as the word "Shroom" being capitalized here.
- In Battle for Neighborville, it is a more shade or purpleish pink, instead of black.
