  • They can be backstabbed. Use this to your advantage as those in the Darkroot Garden will run away once attacked, exposing their back.
  • Watch out for their trip attack, it can take you by surprise as they fall down and give you a headbutt. It's very quick with no telegraph.


  • When in Ash Lake, using the Chameleon sorcery will turn you into a Mushroom Child.
  • The sound that Mushroom Children sometimes make when they die is the call of the common loon
