Poison Mushroom is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom plants. It costs 1SunPvZH and has 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH when played. It has the PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero 2 trait, which increases its strength when there are no zombies blocking Poison Mushroom's way to the opposing hero. It can also be summoned by Nightcap's signature ability, Mush-Boom. Its zombie counterpart is Mini-Ninja.

Origins

Poison Mushroom by appearance is based on Hydnellum peckii, a mushroom that is known from its cap that "oozes" and is inedible yet nonpoisonous. Poison Mushroom itself is based on fungi that are considerably toxic, more commonly associated to humans. Its name is a direct combination of "poison" and "mushroom."

Card description

Zombie Heroes. Don't like em'. Not one bit. Don't care who knows it, either.

Strategies

With

Poison Mushroom is only more effective when it is directly attacking the hero, otherwise it is no better than a Button Mushroom. Plant it in a lane with no zombies, or just take out the zombie in front of you with a trick. It is a risky move to play Poison Mushroom on the first turn when your opponent does not play any zombies, because they may be saving up for tricks to weaken or destroy it. Do not play it when your opponent starts with a Dog Walker, because it will move onto Poison Mushroom's lane.

However, if you are Nightcap and you started with Mush-Boom, Poison Mushroom can guarantee a hit on the zombie hero when this trick is used on a lane with a zombie with the exception of Headstone Carver and Cat Lady, since all 1-brain cost zombies excluding those two have 2 health or less.

Against

This should be an extremely easy plant to take out as long as it does not catch the zombie hero off-guard, and even then it is not as bad as something more powerful like Poison Oak. Simple counters can be played on the first turn as tricks like Bungee Plumber and Nibble cost 1 brain and will destroy this plant. Dog Walker is a great zombie fighter against this plant as well.

Trivia

  • Its description may be a reference to one or more of the quotes found in The Dark Knight. One of the quotes in the film include 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."
    • This reference may be the cause of Poison Mushroom's PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero trait.
      • It may also be why Nightcap is commonly associated with this plant, due to the plant hero's resemblance to the aforementioned comic book superhero.
  • Poison Mushroom, Poison Ivy and Poison Oak are the only plants in the entire series to start with the word "poison."
    • Coincidentally, all three are Kabloom plants with the PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero trait.
  • Poison Mushroom is the only plant that can summoned by a Signature Superpower that can also be obtained normally.
  • Its design is most likely inspired by Shadow-shroom.
  • Poison Oak mentions it along with Poison Ivy in its description. It says that they have lunch with each other every week.
  • Poison Mushroom has the lowest PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero stat of any card.
  • Oddly, in a Twitter post, the HD photo of Poison Mushroom has purple skin, while Poison Mushroom in-game has more pale skin.
