"You're lucky I'm on your side," says Doom-shroom. "I could destroy everything you hold dear. It wouldn't be hard."

Doom-shroom is a mushroom appearing in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, and Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition.

When activated either through normal planting in Night and Fog levels, or through waking up via Coffee Bean in daylight levels, Doom-shroom will explode in a 7x5 area (7x6 in the Android version) in a manner similar to Cherry Bomb, dealing 90 normal damage shots worth of damage to any enemy caught in the blast. Doom-shroom will also leave behind a crater afterwards which will prevent further planting for 180 seconds, and any other plant sharing the tile with Doom-shroom, namely Lily Pad, Flower Pot and/or Pumpkin, will be lost. This makes it an environment modifier.

Strategies

Doom-shroom proves itself to be worthy of its appearance as the "tactical nuke" of the plant army: An incredibly powerful explosive weapon with great potential, but also with noticeable drawbacks. Thanks to its massive area of effect and damage, Doom-shroom can cover almost every threat present on the screen and wipe out anything short of a Gargantuar, as long as it is planted on the pool rows in Pool and Fog levels, or not on the edge rows in other areas. On the other hand, the resulting crater can be detrimental, as it can practically lock down the tile permanently in normal levels, or for many flags in Survival: Endless, a place where every planting tile is needed and losing one could result in a loss of the level for the player. The slow recharge rate also hampers Doom-shroom somewhat, though Imitater can be used to combat this.

Similarly to Ice-shroom's case, the nocturnal plant mechanic does not necessarily affect Doom-shroom negatively, as it will allow the player to "stockpile" Doom-shrooms and activate them when needed. Stockpiling Doom-shroom however is a far more difficult task however, as Doom-shroom will need to be planted on the frontline in order to fully utilize its potential, unlike Ice-shroom which can be planted anywhere. In this case, Pumpkin can be used to help the player do this more efficiently — while Doom-shroom will destroy its Pumpkin when activated, the tactical value of being able to store powerful explosive weapons is usually worth the additional 125 sun, especially in Survival: Endless.

Trivia

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies

  • When the Doom-shroom explodes, the word "DOOM!!" will appear with a purple nuclear cloud (which looks like a mushroom cloud).
    • These are identical to the smoke clouds created when a Lawn Mower destroys a Gargantuar, only colored purple.
  • The Nintendo DS version's phrase of "DOOM!!" is wider than in other versions as well as off the ground.

    • It's just a seed packet image though who knows where that'll go.
    • But why does it have the name of the Cuke in Garden Warfare? I don't understand that. It is probably fake, but I might be wrong.
