Kingdom Hearts
Hostile Heartless, unlike White Mushrooms. They attack with poison. Defeating them may bring good things, but it is not easy.
Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories
An aggressive, poisonous Heartless, not to be confused with the White Mushroom.
The Black Fungus likes to paralyze its foes and toy with them.
It's tough to beat, but victory doesn't go unrewarded...
Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
Tough-as-tacks Heartless that boost their Defense and produce puffs of poison when struck. Good luck defeating one—but lucky you if you do!
Kingdom Hearts Union χ
This foe has lots of defense, the ability to poison its enemy, and fungi allies. Burn it down quickly with hard-hitting abilities!

The Black Fungus is an Emblem Heartless found in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and Kingdom Hearts Union χ.

Design[edit]

A Black Fungus has a spherical, pitch black head with two glowing yellow, beady eyes. It wears a round, purple cap on its head that sports two black, angular spirals on its front. It also seems to wear a navy blue smock that completely covers its legs and thin, fingerless arms. Its Heartless emblem is present on the front of this smock.

The Black Fungus's name references its dark coloration, as well as Fungi, a biological kingdom that contains organisms such as mushrooms and truffles.

Strategy[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Unlike the other Mushroom Heartless, it is hostile. It can become invulnerable for a short time to defend itself and release poisonous gases, making it very hard to defeat on top of having high defense stats. If Sora finishes them off with a Critical Hit at the end of a combo, they may either drop a Mystery Goo (100%), or a Mystery Mold (10%). It is possible for them to drop both, and upon being finished with a Critical Hit as aforementioned, they drop around 20 to 100 Munny.

If having trouble finding Mystery Mold after defeating a Black Fungus, use Trinity Limit. If Sora doesn't have Trinity Limit yet, use Gravity, as it is usually a one-hit knockout. Since the Black Fungus drop Mystery Mold after critical hits, make sure to remove all Combo Pluses before fighting them to shorten the length of the combo.

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

As with Kingdom Hearts, the Black Fungus will periodically turn itself invincible. The cards it uses are numbered 7, so be sure to break them accordingly. Defeating Black Fungi usually yields a Calm Bounty card (a Roulette Room card in Reverse/Rebirth), so exhausting Black Room cards is a rather easy way to stock up on Calm Bounty cards.
