Magic Mushroom (魔术菇; pinyin: móshù gū) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He throws playing cards at zombies which deal 2 normal damage shots per hit forward and backward, but not at the same time.
Magic Mushroom's color scheme is very similar to the Agaricus mushroom. The "magic" part comes from his magic hat-shaped cap and the cards that surround the said cap, which are often used for many magic tricks.

Plant Food effect
When given Plant Food, Magic Mushroom summons five large top hats on random tiles on the lawn, creating illusions of zombies that consists of Basic Zombies, Conehead Zombies, and Buckethead Zombies, and sometimes Gargantuars. These zombie illusions are respective to the world the level is in and fight for the player.
He will only spawn Buckethead Zombies and Gargantuars. In the 1.6.2 update and up, he now reduced the chance of spawning a Gargantuar and instead, he will now spawn illusion Conehead Zombie as well.
The Magic Mushroom is not very strong at battling zombies, as somewhat most other offensive plants are more powerful than him. However, he can shoot backwards and can be used against Prospector Zombies and Flying Imps. But the true power of him is in his Plant Food ability, where he is capable of spawning multiple high-health zombies that fight for the player that can include Gargantuars, which exceeds Hypno-shrooms in advantage as the Hypno-shroom can only create one hypnotized zombie at a time. Five to ten level 4 Magic Mushrooms connected by Tile Turnips are very deadly as the player can have a huge wave of illusion zombies approaching through the lawn, which will end up in the current zombie crowd overwhelmed. He is even usable as aerial defense in Sky City as in there the zombies created are aerial, allowing them to fight other zombies easily. Beware, as stronger plane zombies can kill even illusions Gargantuars in a slice.
