Spore Shroom is a Charm in Hollow Knight. When using Focus, it releases a cloud of damaging spores around the Knight.

Usefulness

Spore Shroom is useful to damage slow or static enemies after healing for a decent amount of damage, ignoring shields. This makes the charm very effective against Crystal Hunters, Stalking Devouts, Heavy Sentries, and other enemies, as well as in the confined arena in the Colosseum of Fools; however, there are better late-game alternatives for a one-notch-worth Charm.

It has great use in the Broken Vessel and the Lost Kin fights, as the spore cloud instantly kills the Infected Balloons spawned during the fights.

Damages neutral enemies of Mantis Village and The Hive, turning them aggressive. It also damages Oomas, triggering their explosion, so it is recommended to not heal near them.

Wearing Spore Shroom allows the Knight to understand the mushroom language, cases being:

How to Acquire

This Charm is located in the Fungal Wastes near a pool of acid, close to the entrances to the Queen's Gardens and Deepnest. Requires Mantis Claw.
