1UP feat. Super Shroom
. A Super Mushroom (also known as Magic Mushroom, Power Booster Mushroom, Power-Up Mushroom, or simply Mushroom) is a red mushroom that serves a particular function depending on the game in which it is found. Its first and most common effect is causing Small Mario to turn into his Super form, allowing him to smash through bricks and take an extra hit from enemies.
The idea for Super Mushrooms were originally believed to have been inspired by the cake that Alice eats in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that makes her grow after having been shrunk by a potion. However, Shigeru Miyamoto later corrected himself, saying that this was a misunderstanding; the mushrooms were actually inspired by the concept of mushrooms being associated with magical worlds in general, like the Wonderland of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the Mushroom Kingdom. Regardless, the item has become one of the most iconic items in video game history, and is almost as known as Mario himself.
