As with the other Mushroom enemies, this enemy will only attack when provoked. When provoked, it shoots six pellets that do little damage around the enemy. Fire type weapons are the most effective against this enemy, as it is weak to Fire. Physical type weapons should only be used if it has enough to do more than 1 damage, since this enemy is stronger to Physical attacks than usual at this point in the game. Status-inducing weapons are not recommended, as it is immune to Poison and will immediately attack after the Freeze time expires. Ice type weapons, however, may work to an extent. As both them and the White Roundhead Tree do not move, Volcano 2 is an excellent weapon against them. Mist Grove 1: 2 is the best spot to farm them for experience and gold at the point in the game it is available, as there are large groups of both without pesky Green Gel Bats that fire weapons struggle to deal with.
