The Ramblin' Evil Mushroom (あるくキノコ, Walking Mushroom) is a creature from the Mother series, appearing as an item in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Ramblin' Evil Mushrooms are enemies in EarthBound and Mother 3 that attack by spreading spores on a party member. The status they inflict is Mushroomization, which causes a mushroom to sprout on their heads which overtime reverses and rotates their controls on the overworld, which is referenced by their effect in Ultimate. Similar variants of this enemy appear in both EarthBound and Mother 3.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As an item[edit]

The Ramblin' Evil Mushroom walks around the stage, waiting for players to pick it up. Should they do so, they can attack with its spores in a manner similar to the Fire Flower's flames. Any fighter hit with its spores will receive the Mushroom effect, which a small mushroom appears on the character's head, similar to the Flower effect. Once the opponent is hit by enough of the spores (visualized by a larger mushroom, which will begin to emit spores), the affected fighter's controls will become reversed. The mushroom cannot be planted on fighters equipped with a spirit with an "Irreversible Controls" effect. If the Ramblin' Evil Mushroom is attacked, it will spray spores around itself, damaging anyone around it.


The Ramblin' Evil Mushroom also appears as a spirit.
