Poison Mushroom is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. They can also be made by Mush-Boom. They cost 1SunPvZH to play and have 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH. They have the PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero 2 trait and do not have any abilities. Their closest zombie counterpart is Mini-Ninja.

Origins

It is unclear what exact mushroom Poison Mushroom is based on, as they are widely based on all fungi and mushrooms that are considerably toxic, more commonly associated to humans. However, their appearance is closest to the Poison Mushroom from the Mario series, or Shadow-shroom, a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that is also a mushroom that oozes poison.

Their name is a combination of "poison," referring to their appearance, and "mushroom," the real-life fungus they are based on.

Their description may be a reference to one or more of the quotes found in The Dark Knight. One of the quotes in the film includes Batman having a conversation to James Gordon on whether the latter must choose to be a hero or a villain, and the other quote was partially mentioned by The Joker where the dialogue says "Not. One. Bit." It is also a reference to their PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero 2 trait.

Strategies

With

Poison Mushroom is a good early-game plant when you want to lead with heavy damage to your opponent, but they have to land a hit on them, because otherwise, they are no better than Button Mushroom. The best placement for them would be a lane with no zombies, but you have to beware when when your opponent does not play any zombies at all, because they may be saving up for a trick to destroy them. Also, do not play them on turn 1 when your opponent starts with a Dog Walker (unless you have Puff-Shroom or Lil' Buddy to distract him), because he will move onto Poison Mushroom's lane.

If you are playing as Nightcap and start out with Mush-Boom, you should have a little more freedom on where you can make the Poison Mushroom, as almost any zombie with 2 health or less is as good as nonexistent.

Being a mushroom card, Poison Mushroom can be boosted by Buff-Shroom, while Punish-Shroom will punish your opponent if they recklessly destroy them. Poison Mushroom also fits with mushroom synergy in general due to them being a cheap swarming card.

Against

Poison Mushroom should not be a threat as long as they do not hit you. Unfortunately, that is easier said then done, as your opponent will most likely play Poison Mushroom on an empty lane. However, there are several cards that counter them very well. Tricks like Bungee Plumber and Nibble are such examples. Dog Walker is another, as he will move onto Poison Mushroom's lane, preventing them from hurting you. It also helps that Dog Walker is able to destroy Poison Mushroom in one attack and survive (unless boosted). However, there is also a chance that your opponent will exploit their Hunt trait instead.
