A spore

Spore is the basic projectile fired by Puff-shrooms, Scaredy-shrooms, and Sea-shrooms. Spores are the mushroom equivalent of peas, without a flaming or frozen variety. There are two kinds of spores: Puff-shroom spores, and Scaredy-shroom spores. Scaredy-shroom spores are slightly larger and more ranged than Puff-shroom spores, but they cannot be shot at close range, because the Scaredy-shroom hides. In Plants vs. Zombies, all plants that shoot spores cost 25 sun or less. Spores are also produced by Ganoderma, and they do one normal damage shot to zombies.

Spore-shrooms lob spores, which have a different appearance. Each deals 2.5 normal damage shot instead. They dissolve the body of a defeated zombie into a new Spore-shroom.

Other than mushrooms, Rafflesia from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 also creates spores. They are green and much larger, and they travel across the lawn and do a lot of damage to groups of zombies.

  • In the online version of Plants vs. Zombies, when a zombie dies and a Puff-shroom spore doesn't hit it, it can hit a zombie farther than its usual range rather than disappearing. This also happens on the DS version and the FREE version. It seems like it can only see 3 spaces though.
  • The spores resemble fumes.
    • Although fumes look like multiple spores, they still do the same damage of one spore.
  • Although Sea-shroom is green in color, its spore is purple just like those shots by Puff-shrooms and Scaredy-shrooms.
    • Sea-shroom, Cactus, Cob Cannon, and Cattail are the only plants whose projectiles are not similar color as the plants.
