The Absorbing Mushroom is an item in Mario Kart Arcade GP and Mario Kart Arcade GP DX.

When a racer uses the Absorbing Mushroom, a vortex appears around the racer for a short period of time. While this vortex is active, any projectile items that hit the racer will be stolen and placed in the racer's hand. The racer cannot pick up items from an Item Box while the vortex is active.
