Mushrooms are arguably the most iconic items in the Mario games. In SMG4, they make frequent appearances in many of the series' videos both old and new, sometimes being used in place of real world drugs. Other times, they can cure people, such as how Mario was turned back to normal in Super Mario 64 Bloopers: 99.5% Crazy.
