Fairy Ring Mushroom was the first Legendary plant obtained by the player after beating Floor 21 of Devour Tower along with Night Cap. Her seed packets were more likely to be dropped in Shallot Graveyard breakout levels.
The player could only have one Fairy Ring Mushroom on the lawn at a given time, similar to other Legendary plants.
Fairy Ring Mushroom was based on, and got her name from "fairy rings", which are a ring of smaller mushrooms that, in numerous European folklore, are often seen as hazardous and dangerous areas.
Specifically, Fairy Ring Mushroom was based on the mushrooms that form the ring such as the mushroom of the same name (Marasmius oreades), also known as the Scotch bonnet or fairy ring champignon.
The "Fairy" part of her name alluded to how she presumably transformed zombies using magic, while the "Ring" may allude to how she attacked in a 3x3 "ring" around herself.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to level 1.
Plant Food effect
Fairy Ring Mushroom's Plant Food ability was called Mass-Shroom, which dealt heavy damage to all zombies in a 5x5 area around herself.
