Mushrooms are a plant native to the Mushroom Kingdom. They can give you magical powers, though these are temporary, and vary depending on which kind of Mushroom it is. Mushrooms are the second favourite food of the MarioBros, their favourite being Spaghetti. Effects can be immediately undone by injury.
When people first settled in the Mushroom Kingdom, they found Mushrooms everywhere. Nobody had ever seen Mushrooms before, and they didn't know anything about them, so they just stuffed them into ? Blocks or sold them to other places. Then one day, Bowser kidnapped Peach. The Mario Bros. went to rescue Peach and stop Bowser, and knowing there were coins inside ? blocks, they hit them. When a Mushroom came out one and landed on Mario, he got stronger, and could no longer be defeated by a kick from a Goomba. The Mario Bros. then tried out different Mushrooms, and eventually used them to rescue Peach. Mushrooms became the Mario Bros' second favourite food, and the national plant of the Mushroom Kingdom.
