The Shade Mushroom's original appearance.

The Shade Mushroom, originally known as the Shadow Mushroom, is a power-up that appears in fanon Super Mario games. Its name was changed to avoid confusion between the resulting form and the character known as Shadow Mario.

Usually, the Shade Mushroom will grant its user the following abilities:

  • They can launch dark spheres at enemies, slowing them down on contact (but only for a few seconds).
  • The user may also be able to blend in with dark areas, thus rendering themselves "invisible". They will become visible again when they come back into a lighter area.

Some games may use the Shade Mushroom in levels with enemies that carry sources of bright light, one such enemy being the Goombulb. If such an enemy looks a character in the eyes, they will revert to their Super form.


Originally, the Shade Mushroom (under the name "Shadow Mushroom") was a mushroom with "angry" eyes and a grey cap with red spots. After the rename, it was redesigned -- the angry eyes remain, but the cap is now black with grey spots, and the base is a blood red.
