Fire-shroom (pyin: 火蘑菇 translation: Fire Mushroom) was a plant in Plants vs. Zombies Social Edition. It was a premium plant that cost 75 sun. Its ability was to deal heavy fire damage to zombies in eating it.
OriginsJudging by the color and shape of its cap, Fire-shroom seems to be based on the fly agaric (Amanita muscaria), a basidiomycete muscimol mushroom of the genus Amanita.
The "fire" in its name refers to the fact that it burns zombies with fire and the "shroom" in its name refers to the fact that it is a mushroom.
The way it damages zombies that eat it is likely based on the negative effects of eating the poisonous/psychoactive mushroom it is based on.
- It was the only new premium plant to not be based on any particular plant.
- It could be the polar opposite of Ice-shroom.
