For the plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that the line is based on, see Shadow-shroom.

The Poison Shadow line (毒影系; pinyin: dú yǐng xì) was a Class S PvZAS Icon Brave.pngBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars which was introduced in the 1.0.104 update, alongside Neon Mixtape Tour.

The line consisted of Toxic-shroom (毒舌菇; pinyin: dú shé gū), Sepsis-shroom (血毒菇; pinyin: xuè dú gū), and Shadow-shroom (毒影菇; pinyin: dú yǐng gū). They all specialized in spreading negative effects and attack by spitting poison.



All members of the Poison Shadow line were based on the Shadow-shroom from Plants vs. Zombies 2, albeit in different colors and appearances.

The middle evolution shared the exact same appearance as Shadow-shroom, and the final evolution shared its name and costumed appearance.

Toxic-shroom's Chinese name ,"毒舌菇", was a pun on "毒舌" (lit. "poison tongue"), which is an a term used to describe a spiteful or sarcastic remark, or someone who is harsh and belittling in their statements or tone. Toxic-shroom's name took on a literal interpretation of a "poison tongue", as Toxic-shroom literally spat poison at zombies, and its attack animation involved it sticking its tongue out.

Poison Tongue Mushroom

Sepsis Mushroom



  • This was the only line in the game to have wrath generation as their soulmates' boost.
  • Due to a glitch, Shadow-shroom lacked its hat in-game, appearing more like Sepsis-shroom.
    • Interestingly, the drop of poison that was supposed to be on the hat still remained, and still reacted and animated as though the hat was still there.
