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.
