|Final Fantasy X-2 Enemy|
- Normal: "A fiend that grows in damp places and releases a spore cloud when struck. It's hard to believe a runt like this can use Ultima..."
Oversoul: "A fiend that grows in damp places and attacks with magic and spore clouds. When its HP gets low, it enters a sort of "Magic Berserk." It's not pretty."
The Mushroom Cloud is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2.
It is the most dangerous of the Fungus group, as it can inflict multiple status ailments, including Petrify, with its Pernicious Powder, which it uses as a counterattack whenever taking damage. It is one of the few enemies in the game whom have access to Ultima, albeit less potent than other enemies. This is likely why it's called Mushroom Cloud.
Without Ribbon-granting accessories or an offensive initiative, engaging in a fight with this fiend might be dangerous. Fire-elemental attacks and a Dark Knight's Darkness attack are effective methods for quickly dispatching this fiend.
When the team capture this most dangerous of the Fungi family (only possible in the International and HD Remaster versions) via a Trap Pod S set up at Bevelle after the Gullwings discover Via Infinito with the Kinderguardians, it comes equipped with its Pernicious Powder and Cure.
Its strongest area is within Magic, also having moderate Accuracy, Magic Defense, and Strength, but its Defense, Luck, and Agility are lackluster, with its Evasion being nearly nonexistent.
In the Fiend Tale endings, a notable Mushroom Cloud was created from a mushroom who grew tired of being rejected by children, asking Yuna's help to make eating fungus acceptable. But when Yuna turns him down, Mushroom Cloud considered killing the Gullwings before finding closure when he was eaten by Brother.
