You're a character in a video game, and you need to climb up a cliff. But unfortunately, you have no climbing skills whatsoever. You have no trampolines, jetpacks, or flying animals. So what do you do? Easy, just go find a mushroom!

In short, mushrooms in video games which can be used as trampolines and springboards.

May overlap with FungusHumongous.

* There are some mushrooms to bounce on in ''Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One''.
* ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'':
** The TropeNamer is Springy Spores, from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns''. While most mushrooms are positioned horizontally (allowing you to jump however you need to), others are tilted and will affect the trajectory of your jump, so you must be careful to avoid falling onto the pits.
** Fungi Forest's mushrooms in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' work this way, and are useful to climb onto the [[TreeTrunkTour much bigger mushroom present]].
* There's only one mushroom in ''VideoGame/DizzyTheAdventurer'', and it serves this purpose.
* In ''VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves'', there are mushrooms you can bounce on around Rajan's jungle base.
* Found in ''VideoGame/EternalDaughter''. There, however, are also [[WallMaster fake ones that bite you]].
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'':
** The track Mushroom Gorge ''VideoGame/MarioKartWii'' has mushrooms you can bounce on.
** Also, some of the aerial Athletic levels from ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' and ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' have bouncy mushroom platforms, accompaining the traditional ones.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic and Knuckles]]'' has giant bouncy mushrooms in Mushroom Hill Zone.
** And [[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush Adventure]] has [[FungusHumongous giant]] bouncy mushrooms in Plant Kingdom.
* ''VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns'' has the "Amanita Muscaria" within Wonderland of different cosmetic varieties that rigidly shoots Alice upwards almost vertically regardless of the angle of landing onto the mushroom.
* VideoGame/LEGOAdaptationGame:
** The Forbidden Forest in ''VideoGame/LegoHarryPotter'' has them.
** As do various locations in ''LEGO The Lord of the Rings.''
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}'' video game, there was a minigame where you had to jump on bouncy, multicolored mushrooms in a certain order. On a later level, Alex was chasing you and at one point he is seen jumping on a mushroom.
* Seen in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'', if only at the end of the [[TransformationSequence shrinking animation]] on tree stumps.
* There was a Sega Genesis game called ''The Aquatic Games'' that was part of the ''James Pond'' series. It had a variant of this involving sea sponges used in a gymnastics level.
* The Flash game ''[[http://jayisgames.com/games/nelly/ Nelly]]''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqfMWuzqEwQ This]] ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fan video, shows [[CuteWitch Marisa]] climbing a hill by jumping between [[FungusHumongous abnormally large mushrooms]].
* ''VideoGame/AngryBirds: Rio'' has bouncy mushrooms in the jungle levels.
* ''[[VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon Spyro: Year of the Dragon]]'' has a puzzle where Spyro has to use flower seeds and mushroom seeds to grow platforms to reach the top of a tower. Because Spyro can only glide and not fly upwards, putting all of them in the right place is essential.
* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} Pikmin 3]]'', the aptly-named Bouncy Mushrooms cause leaders and Pikmin that jump on them to be launched to a fixed destination. Some springy mushrooms also appear in Mushroom Valley in the spin-off game ''Hey! Pikmin''.
* One of the various types of springs in ''VideoGame/{{Bug}}'' were mushrooms he could jump on. They appeared in several levels, including worlds where it would be odd for mushrooms to exist in (such as [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Bur-r-ubs]] and [[LethalLavaLand Arachnia]]).
* ''VideoGame/AHatInTime'' has bioluminescent mushrooms in Subcon Forest that bounce Hat Kid at varying heights.
