Mushroom Parents are enemies in Dark Souls


Mushroom Parents are located in the Darkroot Garden, Ash Lake, and The Great Hollow


Although slow, the Mushroom Parent deals very high damage, capable of quickly killing the player. On the other hand, Mushroom Parents have very high starting and ending lag to their attacks, giving players ample time to react. An easy way to dispatch the Mushroom Parents is to fight them one on one since they usually are found in pairs.
