Mushroom is an attack effect used in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is exclusive to the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom item and is also one of many effects Sephiroth's Final Smash, Supernova can inflict. Fighters hit by the item will temporarily have their controls reversed.

Status condition[edit]

When a fighter picks up the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom, a cloud of spores will shoot out by pressing the attack button, putting a small mushroom on the opponents's head. This will cause the horizontal directional inputs on the control stick to be temporarily reversed. Hitting the opponent with the spores three times will make the mushroom grow larger and exude spores, extending the duration of the effect. Attacking the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom without picking it up will cause it to shoot out a cloud of spores, putting a mushroom on the attackers head. However, the attacker's controls are not reversed and the mushroom cannot grow larger.

If a character is hit by Sephiroth's Supernova, there is a chance their controls will be reversed. This effect will be indicated with the same large mushroom as received from being hit by the spores of the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom three times.

This effect references the Mushroomization status the Ramblin' Evil Mushrooms can inflict on the player in EarthBound, which causes the overworld controls to be rotated. This effect is shown by a mushroom appearing in the party members' heads, much like the Mushroom growing on opponents in Ultimate.
