—"Mama Said"

Mother Mushroom is the main antagonist in the episode "Mama Said", and is the result of many smaller mushrooms fusing by unclear powers. 

Appearance []

Mother Mushroom is a giant mushroom with a mustard yellow color on its top and a lighter yellow color on its underside. It has multiple, smaller mushrooms of varying earthy tones growing on its top. It has a hole where it hides its tentacles and each has a giant eye at the end that has ten long eyelashes. Mother Mushroom turns into pink-red with a white tentacle when it's enraged. 


Mother Mushroom's main ability is that it levitate through mid-air move here and there. Apparently, it can absorbs surrounding mushrooms to make its size bigger, presumably to appear more threatening or gain more power. Mother Mushroom can also shoots out "spore dispersing blast", a kind of laser launched from its eyes that can generate a cluster of mushrooms where it landed. Although the blast can destroy a decayed tree log that Finn, Jake, and Canyon used to hide, it's not powerful enough to harm a living being more than just traps them with the mushrooms and causes sinuses from the spores.

It can use its tentacles as a combat as evidenced when it attacked Jake to drop him and tried to grab Canyon. It can also shoots it own eyeballs, similar to that of a cannon, and when the eyeball explodes it will release a large portion of spores that can causes anyone inhale it will have a brief respiratory disturbance. Last but not least, it also capable of speech, evidenced after Finn compliments Mother Mushroom, it begin to randomly say some fun facts about mushrooms.
