Mushrooms, like food, have nutritional values; all mushrooms provide tiny, seemingly negligible amounts of nutrition, a fact that is offset by their extremely light weight; all mushrooms have a weight of 0.01.
Like certain meds, the majority of mushrooms require identification before their name and effects can be revealed. An unidentified mushroom can only be described by its appearance (see below).
Mushrooms belong to one of three categories; normal mushrooms (which are distinguished by mundane effects such as Venom, which simulates poisonous mushrooms, or Hallucinations), magic mushrooms, and unique mushrooms (detailed further below).
All mushrooms are usually generated in groups or clusters, the size of which depends on the category the mushroom belongs to.
- Normal mushrooms are found in 1d10 clusters.
- Magic mushrooms are found in 1d3 clusters.
- Unique mushrooms are found in 1d5 clusters.
Unusually for an item in the Mazes, mushrooms cannot be purchased or sold at any shop, and therefore have no monetary value. Mushrooms can only be found, typically in the UA and most frequently in rooms with high levels of decay (with the "forsaken" or "overgrown" descriptor).
Certain mushrooms are referred to as magic mushrooms; though unlike their real-life counterparts, this is because they are actually infused with some sort of magic energy, causing them to have far more varied effects.
Although magic mushrooms can have both positive and negative effects, those with positive effects may be highly sought after, as their extremely low weight makes carrying them very convenient. However, great care must be taken when consuming them; all magic mushrooms are addictive. Characters that have developed an addiction to magic mushrooms are said to be afflicted with sick hakutaku syndrome.
A small amount of mushrooms are classified as "unique"; these mushrooms have a unique, unmistakable appearance, and therefore do not require to be identified.

Certain mushrooms are given a different usual name than in real life; the explanations given are listed here.
- Archangel's Mushroom: Known in real life as Saint George's Mushroom. The name in the Mazes is a reference to the Archangel, an Angelic creature.
- Daemon webcap: Known in real life as the Goliath webcap. The name in the Mazes is a reference to the Daemon, a Demonic creature.
- Demonic mushroom: Known in real life as Satan's mushroom. The name in the Mazes is a simple reference to the Demonic faction.
- Nisekan: Known in real life as Caesar's Mushroom. The name in the Mazes is a Youkai-language reference to the mushroom's shape and appearance. 偽柑 (nisekan) is transliterated to "fake orange" or "fake citrus", so called because this mushroom can be confused for an orange.
- Oni's Bane: Known in real life as the tippler's bane, the ink cap or inky cap, this mushroom was given this name because, much like in real life, it becomes poisonous when consumed with alcohol.
- Oni have vilified black mushrooms to the point of using "black mushroom" as a synonym for "toxic" or "hazardous". This is because both the Oni's Bane and the magic Oni terror, which induce Anti-Oni Syndrome, are black in color.
