I think the picture at the top should be in Super Mushroom, because it's actually a super mushroom. Also this page should cover more about mushrooms in general, instead of just items in the RPGs that are called only mushrooms.

Merge M&L series mushrooms together[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge on main article 1-5-0
As stated above, I propose to merge Mushroom, Super Mushroom (just M&L info), Ultra Mushroom, and Max Mushroom (just M&L info) into a seperate page or on the main mushroom page. We already have the Nuts ajoined, so we should also ajoin these stated above together to get rid of the small articles they are.

Merge Mushrooms together on a Separate article[edit]

  1. FunkyK38 (talk) - Good idea. It gets rid of stubs and it will join more of the mushroom family together.

Merge Mushrooms together on main Mushroom article[edit]

  1. Baby Mario Bloops (talk) - Per all I said above and the logic of how the other sections would have to be seperated and cause the mess.
  2. Red Shell 68066vr (talk) We did it with the Nuts article and we will be doing it with the Syrup page, so we need to be consistent. Here is the syrup talk page: syrup talk
  3. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) - Per the shell that reflects the wavelength light of red and consistency.
  4. Walkazo (talk) - Per all: consistency and streamlined navigation are always to be striven for.
  5. Reversinator (talk) Consistency!

Leave Mushrooms as is[edit]


I want to know how you could name the page for the mushrooms that appear in the Mario & Luigi series in case this proposal succeeds, please. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Well, possibly Mushroom (Mario & Luigi) or any similar name. Don't worry, that is not the only name I thought of. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)
"Mushroom (Mario & Luigi series)" perhaps? You need to decide on the name before the proposal passes so the voters know exactly what we'll be getting. - Walkazo 23:35, 30 January 2010 (EST)
Yeah, that is a better name, so if my side wins, than we will call it what Walkazo said. Also, just in case like the syrups, the page won't be a sentence or two long, as you can see by the fact of the paragraghs they are right now. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)
You see, Red Shell 68066vr, the Nuts article needs to be expanded, the syrups do to! The mushroom info is not to little, so it can be a seperate article! The Nuts are a seperate page BTW, just that there was no other nuts. Do you see what I'm trying to say? Also, Nuts and Syrups only appeared in two games, Mushrooms all three! Do you understand what I'm saying? - Baby Mario Bloops
Regardless of that, he (or she?) has a point. A strong one in fact. Consistency is just as important as expanding articles, if not more important. - Gabumon from the Digimon franchise Gabumon(talk) 17:19, 4 February 2010 (EST)
Now what makes you say that putting it on another page say that it won't be consistent? Just because RS ####vr (sorry, got lazy) said that it will be consistent doesn't mean it won't be either way. Leaving them alone as seperate articles will break the consistenty, though. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)

I assume that is why he/she didn't vote to "leave them alone". - Gabumon from the Digimon franchise Gabumon(talk) 17:32, 4 February 2010 (EST)

Consistency is important. When we look in the syrup page, for example, we see all the syrups names and all of this stuff. When we look in the Mushroom article, however, we see that there is barely/no information on the mushroom items! It's on a separate article!

The Mushroom article has more info, yes, but wouldn't hurt to expand more. Besides, placing all the Mushrooms in another article will probably create a stub since they look exactly like mushrooms, except that they restore different amounts of HP.

(Separate is spelled like this, FYI. Sorry for being a spelling nut. :()

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

STOP USING THE SYRUP PAGE AS A REFERENCE!!!! We need to expand it like the Nuts page. Also, like above, Mushrooms won't be a stub as a seperate article because they been in all the games!!! (3 games, Nuts/syrups - 2 games) Personally, I think it would be more consistent if it was seperate because it would help users find it easier instead of looking throughout the Mushroom Page. And, we bring it to this page, lot of stuff is going to be added that could have been a complete non-stub article!!!! Please, everyone, get that in your head if you don't already! Baby Mario Bloops (talk)

Err... calm down. The opposers do have valid reasons to oppose after all. They are correct, splitting it into a separate page for the M&L series isn't very consistent. We would also have to create an article for Mushroom (Super Mario series), Mushroom (Paper Mario series) and so on for consistency.--Knife (talk) 19:45, 5 February 2010 (EST)

I'm not angry at all. Also, that is a very good valid point, but also we have articles that have stuff that is seperated that the other stuff should be seperated too for consistentity but isn't. Baby Mario Bloops (talk)

Yes, another Mushroom one, like we don't have enough, but, for the consistent info, we should have Mushroom (SMRPG info), Bad Mushroom, Mid Mushroom, and Max Mushroom merged together.

  3. Walkazo (talk) - Seeing as the M&L Mushrooms have all been merged, the only consistent thing to do would be to merge Bad Mushroom, Mid Mushroom, and Max Mushroom into the SMRPG section of the Mushroom page as well. Saving space, scrapping stubs and speeding up navigation are also pluses.

Leave PM Mushrooms as separate Pages[edit]

  1. Reversinator (talk) The Paper Mario mushrooms are a lot more unique and major than the M&L and SMRPG mushrooms.
  2. Baby Mario Bloops (talk) I know it's still early to vote. But, the pages are not that short, have plentiful info that should never be merged, and per above with the uniqueness of the articles. I only did this in favor of KS3 since he didn't make a proposal himself...
  3. Walkazo (talk) - Unlike in M&L and SMRPG, the PM Mushrooms can be used in recipes, which makes Super Shrooms and Ultra Shrooms more unique than if they just restored different amounts of HP. Slow Shroom is even more different than regular Mushrooms, and shouldn't even be considered for a merge.
  4. KS3 (talk) Okay, what the hell. Slow shrooms don't restore health, and there are a lot of shrooms in Paper Mario. And they can be used in recipes. Per Walkazo.


Baby Mario Bloops (talk) The pages could work just staying alone, may be better to merge it here, or to merge onto one single page. I don't know, and I want to see what people's opinion's are.

Baby Mario Bloops (talk) - KS3, not to be at all mean, I'm just saying this for reference next time. When your wondering if a proposal should be made, and you think that someone else is going to make it, then just make it if the person hasn't yet. It will save some confusion for some users...

Yeah, I was the idiot who added all the Super Mushroom information to the Mushroom article.

So, apparently this article has a long proposal history. I haven't thoroughly checked all of them yet, I just assume that the info on this page got split from a larger article about Mushrooms at one point. So nowadays, this article is about the Mushroom item found in the RPGs, right? If that's the case, we cannot use the Mushroom artwork from New Super Mario Bros. Wii's Super Mushroom on this page, since that's a completely unrelated item. We need to use artwork from the RPGs here instead. My question is: Does Bowser's Inside Story have official Mushroom artwork that can go on the page? Or any other recent RPG for that matter? - Gabumon from the Digimon franchise Gabumon(talk) 08:18, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

AHEM! Where is the mushrooms from the Party Series? I just can't believe they aren't listed anywhere! How totally wrong!!! ThePremiumYoshi 09:19, 6 November 2011 (EST)

All Types[edit]

I suggest we merge all types of mushrooms (Mini Mushroom, Mega Mushroom, Bee Mushrom, etc.) in one page with its own section and list of appearances to save room on this wiki.{{User:M&L'M&L Baby_mario.gif 20:09, 12 January 2012 (EST)'}}

The other types of Mushroom have more details and completely different roles in the series' various games, so they are completely different, aside from them being powerups and the same type of Fungal life. I would oppose on the basis of these facts. Bop1996 (Talk)

Seperation of Mushroom and Triple Mushroom articles[edit]

The "Time Kinoko" from Mario and Wario has a completely different effect from every other Mushroom on this page (the fact that this article is a mix of many different Mushrooms of different effect simply called "Mushroom" notwithstanding...), and has a different name to boot. Sure, it looks the same (more or less) as a "normal" Mushroom, but so do Super Mushrooms. The split name should probably be "Taimu Kinoko", though, at least if I understand the romanization right.

It'd actually would be "Time Kinoko": according to policy, we're allowed to change names borrowed from English back into the English names when using Japanese titles for ease-of-use/aesthetics (but the proper romanization still needs to be included in-text). - Walkazo 17:41, 20 May 2015 (EDT)

Ah, thanks. That page is a rather long and intensive read, so I must have missed that part.
Incidentally, if anyone cares, this started as a much more ambitious proposal to split the Kart/Party Mushrooms from the RPG ones. Writing up that proposal brought up so many obvious issues (what to call the articles, what to do with the Mario Golf: World Tour section, etc.) that I scrapped it, but this more clear-cut issue came up in the process. -- 1337star (Mailbox SP) 17:25, 21 May 2015 (EDT)

First appearance and Latest appearance[edit]

Do this item first appear in Super Mario Bros. or Super Mario Bros. 2 and do this one appear in Super Mario Maker.

They're unique RPG items with different names, they should be split according to the precedent set by just about everything else. As for why this is a proposal if it's so clear-cut...

Considering the Japanese names and the items' effects, it's pretty clear that Bad Mushrooms, Mid Mushrooms, and Max Mushrooms are just different names for Poison Shrooms, Super Shrooms, and Ultra Shrooms. Because of that, I've included a few options here.

split 7-2
More RPG items with unique names and effects, which have no business sharing a page. Considering the Japanese names (source) and effects, some of them would get merged with the Paper Mario mushrooms, though a few would get their own articles. Here's the tl;dr list of proposed changes:

Proposer: Niiue (talk)
Deadline: May 13, 2017, 23:59 GMT


  1. Niiue (talk) Per proposal.
  2. Yoshi876 (talk) Per proposal.
  3. TheFlameChomp (talk) Now that both of my reasons for opposing have been resolved, I don't any reason to continue to oppose.
  4. Baby Luigi (talk) Per proposal.
  5. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) I agree with everything except Golden Mushroom; that should go to the Golden Mushroom page.
  6. The Koopa Bro. (talk) Per all.
  7. Ultimate Mr. L (talk) Per proposal.


  1. Yoshi the Space Station Manager (talk) Yeah. I can't see myself supporting this. It will be better to keep them where they are as they will lead to short articles (notice I didn't say stub because it is not a guarantee) especially for the Double Mushroom (which is two 1-Up Mushrooms and nothing else and only appeared in one game. It can't go with 1-Up Mushroom DX if that gets moved, but can if it stays with 1-Up Mushroom) though I can see 1-Up Mushroom DX being separate. Also, after the above one passes, Max Mushroom will have to be changed since it has that and this to work with and thus those who want Max Mushroom from SMRPG will get M&L series Max Mushroom, which is less favorable than a link to both types. However, if you make it Max Mushroom (Mario & Luigi series), then it will be one step closer to a support. Ultra Mushroom and Ultra Shroom just seem different to me, but if the other two are meant, then I will support this. As for Golden Mushroom, just add more to the Golden Mushroom page if you want to have more on it and don't make a new page. Otherwise, I am absolutely opposing this.
  2. Time Turner (talk) Per all.

#Baby Luigi (talk) There are some areas of this proposal that I support, like splitting Max Mushroom and Ultra Shroom while the one I oppose, Golden Mushroom, is the one that drags down this proposal. I think status quo would do unless the options change to reflect my opinion.
#TheFlameChomp (talk) Per YtSSM. The Golden Mushroom information should stay on Golden Mushroom, as that page covers any gold-colored mushrooms that have appeared in the Mario franchise.
#The Koopa Bro. (talk) Per YtSSM


Literally the only thing the two types of Golden Mushrooms have in common is the name and color. Niiue (talk) 20:19, 1 May 2017 (EDT)

The only problem is that, if we split the Golden Mushroom just because it was different, then it wouldn't make sense not to split the rest that are different, which would cause multiple different unnecessary short articles. It also would make navigating the Wiki a little more confusing if you were looking specifically for the ones from M&L, and it is better for them to be in one spot. Also, if we did split all with different abilities, some Golden Mushrooms have similar appearances to each other but different abilities, such as Mario Party: Star Rush Golden Mushrooms using Mario Kart appearances and P&D:SMBE using the appearance from NSMB2, so it would be very confusing to split. I agree with the other splits on the proposal, but I feel the Golden Mushroom is unnecessary. --A sprite of a Flame Chomp from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.TheFlameChomp (talk) 20:28, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
For the record, a stub is not a short article: a stub is an article that is lacking information. If a short article has all of the necessary information, it is not a stub. While a stub is often a short article, a short article is certainly not always a stub. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:33, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
Yeah, "stub" was just the first word that came to my head. However, couldn't a few sections such as New Super Mario Bros. 2 be considered a stub if it were taken from the page and put on a new page? Not only is it only two sentences long, but there isn't exactly that much information. --A sprite of a Flame Chomp from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.TheFlameChomp (talk) 20:39, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
I don't see how it'd be any more confusing than, say, the two Ice Mario pages. Niiue (talk) 20:40, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
The only similarities between the Ice Marios are the names and the fact that they are obtained from an Ice Flower. They have different appearances and many different properties, and the NSMBW Box labels Ice Mario as a "new power-up". Even if this is not a good enough answer, another problem I have with this proposal is, as Yoshi the Space Station Manager (talk) said, if the above proposal passes (and it looks like it probably will), then Max Mushroom will be moved to Ultra Shroom, which affects this proposal because then both Ultra Mushroom and Max Mushroom would end up being merged with Ultra Shroom. --A sprite of a Flame Chomp from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.TheFlameChomp (talk) 21:24, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
...No they wouldn't. M&L Max Mushrooms aren't the same as SMRPG ones. Niiue (talk) 21:26, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
Oh, Ok. I wasn't sure, because both proposals have something that is being merged with Ultra Shroom, so I wasn't sure if that move would apply to this one too. --A sprite of a Flame Chomp from New Super Mario Bros. Wii.TheFlameChomp (talk) 21:28, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
"Literally the only thing the two types of Golden Mushrooms have in common is the name and color." So? The 1-Up Mushroom in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga shares only the color and name too, are you going to split that too? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 20:43, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
That's a bad example. It's way more likely that two unrelated yellow mushrooms would be called "Golden Mushrooms" than for two unrelated items to be called "1-Up Mushrooms". Additionally, the M&L Golden Mushroom has a different Japanese name (ゴールデンキノコ instead of パワフルキノコ or スーパーキノコ). Niiue (talk) 20:57, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
Are you sure about the "more likely" part? Also, Japanese name alone doesn't warrant a split article, I know that this was the case for other articles on the wiki, but I'm not going to dig up those cases. They need more differences than just the name and function to be split. I still don't believe this Golden Mushroom has enough differences from the standard golden Mushroom to be split, and I think the Golden Mushroom article is a good umbrella article for all Golden Mushrooms in the wiki. And the Golden Mushroom already comes with two Japanese names, so it's already indicator enough that even they can't keep a consistent name with this item. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 21:32, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
Hm, fair point. I'll remove the Golden Mushroom from the proposal, then. Niiue (talk) 21:41, 1 May 2017 (EDT)

@Yoshi the Space Station Manager: The SMRPG Max Mushroom has nothing to do with this proposal. Niiue (talk) 22:09, 1 May 2017 (EDT)

Actually, it does, since Max Mushroom would refer to two things, SMRPG and M&L series, after the above proposal passes. Red Yoshi in a construction hat walking Yoshi the SSM (talk) 22:21, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
...No, it wouldn't. The two proposals refer to different Max Mushrooms. Niiue (talk) 22:23, 1 May 2017 (EDT)

Yeah, I have. Niiue (talk) 22:30, 1 May 2017 (EDT)
Then I am saying that Max Mushroom will have to have a link to Ultra Shroom, while having separate info (whether what is proposed or a link to M&L series on this page if it fails) about the M&L Max Mushroom. Red Yoshi in a construction hat walking Yoshi the SSM (talk) 22:39, 1 May 2017 (EDT)


i think that we should move this page to Mushroom (Item) and create a new page called Mushroom whitch will include all of

the types of mushrooms found in the mario franchise, similar to the Block page. Who agrees? YoshiEgg1990 (talk)

I wanted to wait until a fourth game gave the Mushrooms this name and function just to be certain that they appear to be considered different. Now that Super Mario Party again names them Dash Mushrooms, I think it's about time we split these. They function noticeably different from the Mushrooms both in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party Advance (Dash Mushrooms add three to the player's roll, whereas MP2's Mushrooms simply add a second Dice Block and MPA's Mushrooms grant Dice Block rolls), and we have certain items split from the parent item simply because they perform slightly different functions (Max Mushroom is split from Mushroom even though both are healing items that simply heal different amounts of HP). I'm also proposing that Golden Dash Mushroom be split from Golden Mushroom, since again it's a differently named item that performs a different function from a similar-looking item in the same series (Golden Dash Mushrooms add five to the player's roll, whereas MP2's Golden Mushrooms simply add a second and third Dice Block).

If you support this proposal, let me know if the other items from Perilous Palace Path in Mario Party: Island Tour (Blooper Chopper, Lightning Score Striker, etc.) should be given separate articles as well.

And what about the Mario Kart ones that use that name in the PAL version of one game? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:32, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

Besides regional differences, I meant... (and yes, I will make a note of that via an {{about}} template in the proposed article) Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 13:59, 19 June 2018 (EDT)

As for other items that aren't covered by the proposal, but appear as items in Island Tour:

  • Setback Shell: too similar to the regular Green Shell and no other Mario Party appearance, so I say no.
  • Backwards Bill: There are two other Bullet Bill items split from the Bullet Bill page. And this is different from both. So, Absolutely.
  • Blooper Chopper: Maybe. I mean, later the Blooper covers the screen with ink in Coinathlon, but that is effecting a minigame, not the board. I say possibly.
  • Lightning Score Striker: Same as Blooper Chopper... except that it doesn't resemble what Lightning does.
  • Lakitu's Leech: One other appearance as an item before and it is split from Lakitu, but it is exactly like that item except it is just items now. I don't know, but possibly yes.
  • Super Star: Same name, no other appearances in Mario Party, makes sense for it to act like this. I say absolutely no.
  • Crazy Kamek and Chaos Kamek: Considering Kamek Orb is split from Kamek, and both are different from Kamek Orb, I say yes.

Split Mushrooms based on their Roles[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

don't split 1-5
Okay, so this page has seen its fair share of proposals. But given the ongoing proposal concerning the Golden Mushrooms and the recent Super Mushroom proposal, I feel confident throwing this idea out there; splitting this big Mushroom into smaller Mushrooms based on their roles. So far, this page is covering the standard Mushroom as a healing item, an extra dice block and a boosting item. The Golden Mushroom is currently seeing a similar, if not the same, situation and I feel it's fine to apply it here too. I'm thinking at least three different articles for these Mushrooms, as followed:

  • Mushroom: Keeping the page's original name, this would talk about the Mushroom as a boosting item, including its roles in the Mario Kart series, Mario Tennis series, Mario & Sonic series and its appearance as an item in Mario Golf: World Tour, as all these instances include a boost in movement speed, be it for the player or golf ball.
  • Mushroom (Mario Party series): This article would talk about the Mushroom's act as an item in the Mario Party series, including its 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 appearances. That being said, since the most recent name would be the Mushroom Orb, that name could also be used, as it's the most recent.
  • Mushroom (healing item): This article would talk about the Mushroom's role as a healing item, including its appearances in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the Paper Mario series and the Mario & Luigi series. The naming would be consistent with the Super Mushroom (healing item). I can also argue that the Mushroom from the Luigi's Mansion remake could also be merged here, though that depends on the naming of that particular mushroom.

The two other instances merged here are the Super Mario Bros. 2 Mushroom and the Mario Clash mushroom. Super Mario Bros. 2 seems like a bit of a mix between a healing item (as it grants an extra heart upon use) and the power-up (granting the Super form if in the Small form) while the Mario Clash mushroom seems to do something different entirely. I'd kinda support the idea of making the Mario Clash mushroom its own article too while merging the Mushroom from Super Mario Bros. 2 to the Super Mushroom page. However, that might be dealing with more than this proposal is initially suggesting.

  1. Tails777 (talk) For now, I feel splitting the core three examples are the best option. The concern of other two is up for discussion.


  1. Keyblade Master (talk) We don't usually split items just because of functionality (especially if the games are different genres), as far as I'm aware these mushrooms have the same name and appearances between the games, most of these even the same basic effect of healing so I don't mind keeping it on the same page. The Golden Mushroom situation on the other hand is to do with the types having different names in Japan.
  2. Somethingone (talk) Are we seriously going to disambiguate every single item page just because they have different functions? I was originally on the fence with the Golden Mushroom one but I was convinced after the whole “different name and style” thing, but this is just going too far. These mushrooms look exactly the same and they don’t have a different name. We shouldn’t split items just because the game series they are in has different mechanics from other game series that they are also in. What’s next? Splitting Banana Peel from Banana because one is a hazard? Splitting the Mario Kart coins because they increase the player’s speed? Splitting the SM3DW Shells because you can ride them? It’s really unnecessary. Unless they have an actual difference that DOESN’T tie to the game they are in having a different genre/style, They should stay merged.
  3. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Completely arbitrary, per all. Also, regarding the MK series one, please see here.
  4. Hewer (talk) Personally, I think that most if not all of this page should be merged to the Super Mushroom page for similar reasons to Somethingone's vote, and I feel like this proposal passing would make the problem of random iterations of the Super Mushroom being picked and chosen to be on different pages worse.
  5. 7feetunder (talk) I'm just going to quote what I said here: "You might as well say that Blue Coins from Super Mario Sunshine should be split because that's the only game where they're a finite collectible instead of being worth 1 or 5 regular coins, or Warp Pipe Orbs from Mario Party 7 should be split for having a different function from the previous games. Or that Shine Sprites in Thousand-Year Door should be split because they aren't used to power up partners in any other game. Difference in function alone, especially between games in different genres, does not warrant a split."


@Hewer I think merging this whole page with Super Mushroom would just clutter it a bit too much. This discussion basically shows the road we should take for this sort of thing. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 15:26, July 23, 2021 (EDT)

My viewpoint is that the mushrooms on the Mushroom page are Super Mushrooms with different effects for different genres (I don't think it's a coincidence that most of them look exactly the same), and some of them being called 'Mushroom' while others are called 'Super Mushroom' I don't think is a very good distinction (if this proposal passes, then some healing mushrooms in RPGs would be on the Mushroom page and others would be on the Super Mushroom page, simply because of the names). There are also much bigger name differences than Super Mushroom and Mushroom that are merged (for example, Boss Bass, Big Bertha and Big Cheep Cheep are all merged). At most I might consider splitting Dash Mushroom for its effect difference seemingly being very loosely based (if at all) on the Super Mushroom's effect and its unique name, but even that is pushing it.

In the RPGs at least, Mushrooms and Super Mushrooms appear together and are treated as seperate items. Bowser Swallow Rindo Kanade 16:17, July 23, 2021 (EDT)

@Doc von Schmeltwick: I wouldn't say this is arbitrary, I'd just say I'm thinking of the situation in the reverse. I'm not saying either or is right or wrong and I went into this thinking if it fails, it fails, no big deal. I just see this in a different light. I didn't go into this without any thought, I just went in with a different perspective, that's all. Sprite of Yoshi's stock icon from Super Smash Bros.
