Mister Mushroom is a talking mushroom found through various locations in Hallownest after the player has progressed past a certain point. His babbles can be heard from a distance, guiding the player to his location.

Finding him in all seven locations rewards the Passing of the Age achievement and a secret cutscene after the player has beaten the game.

To understand what he says, the player must equip the Spore Shroom charm, otherwise he'll speak gibberish and won't move to the next location.


 Riddle Tablet

Riddle Tablet

The Riddle Tablet is a glowing glyph in a secret room at the bottom right corner of Kingdom's Edge. When the player reads it with the Spore Shroom charm equipped, the tablet reveals a poem, which gives hints to the locations where Mister Mushroom can be found.

We speak the path of the Master Herald, he who would signal an Age's end.
Spawn of self, their minds unite,

Aside the source of acid blight,

Aglow in darkest, winding depths,

Winds all howl above fossilstone steps,

Monarchflys in air set still,

To Root's domain and snail once shrill,

Path of Wyrm, at new lands entered,

There journeys end. The kingdom ventured.


Defeating all 3 Dreamers will trigger Mister Mushroom's appearance. He can be found in 7 different locations. Each one must be visited in the order described on the Riddle Tablet.

1) Fungal Wastes
Mushroom Location 1
2) Kingdom’s Edge
Mushroom Location 2
3) Deepnest
Mushroom Location 3
4) Howling Cliffs
Mushroom Location 4
5) Ancient Basin
Mushroom Location 5
6) Fog Canyon
Mushroom Location 6
7) King’s Pass
Mushroom Location 7



First encounter
...It's nice that you were able to help your friend. So you're not hungry any more?

Yes, that was quite the appetite. I was impressed. Still, we all move on sooner or later.

To greater things, perhaps? So much can be achieved in just a short time...

...Oh. Excuse me.


Second encounter
...Shouldn't trust the eye they gave you. Rely on your own instincts.

If you've got a keen nose, use it.

And while you're hunting for secrets, beware those who are hunting you!

...Oh. Excuse me.


Third encounter
...The dead can't make use of wealth in any case. What would they spend it on?

Yes, a big brood like that. They need food. And shelter. And toys.

If you keep some for yourself... Well, I think you deserve it. Yes...

...Oh. Excuse me.


Fourth encounter
...What was called a "hero" in its moment may be called something very different after time has passed.

The crimes and triumphs of our predecessors echo all around us, don't they?

The chains of fate that bind us all together... do you really want to break them?

...Oh. Excuse me.


Fifth encounter
...Well if things are getting too dangerous down there, maybe it's time to take a break?

Come back up and spend some time hunting, or gathering, or wandering aimlessly.

No, not too much longer now...

...Oh. Excuse me.


Sixth encounter
...I haven't seen her, no. I'm sure you'll remember where you left her eventually.

Trust the moon, or yourself. Or trust her. You need to trust something, that's my point.

Hmm? No, not him. No. Absolutely not.

...Oh. Excuse me.


Seventh encounter
...It's not by tools that you'll triumph, it's through your smarts, your speed, your determination....


Final words
...Oh. I see. So you've been following me around then? I hope my travels haven't confused your own, distracted you.

Then again, a meandered journey still has meaning. It is, after all, from a journey we find our purpose, though a stop is more than just a stop.

And my if those stops can't be lovely things, wouldn't you say? Transcendent plateaus, distant sandy lands, vast ancient kingdoms. Yours was not the first, nor will it be the last, but it's a unique and special thing nonetheless.

Now, with my duties here finished, it's time I made graceful departure. Till next time my friend. 'Tis a long road we tread, but a joyous one.

Until our paths cross again...

Dream Nailed
...Wyrms pull bugs into their thrall,

Till ages pass and kingdoms fall,

Caps and shells may fall to dust,

But Mr Mushroom readjusts...


Shroomish Dream Nailed
...Mishi umo sanga. Dogo!..



  • According to Mister Mushroom's dialogue, he has witnessed many more civilizations before Hallownest, and all seemed to have been started by Wyrms.
    • This implies he witnessed how Hallownest started as well.
  • Mr. Mushroom's first dialogue is a likely reference to Team Cherry's entry 'Hungry Knight' for the Ludum Dare Game Jam 27, in which they first used the player character that became The Knight. In the game, the player has to keep feeding on cherries dropped by enemies and kill three bosses (whose icons look similar the Dreamers') to resurrect a friend.
