  • This guide is for Normal mode to maximize bauble collection. In Infantile Mode the majority of this zone can be completed by using the rainbow clouds, and foes are more likely to drop food than Baubles.

Starting Area to Checkpoint 1[edit]

You start out in a dimly-lit pit with a tree trunk, some Flytraps, and some sticky plants around you. In front of you is a shop keeper. If you haven't gotten the Light skill yet, the candle is available for purchase from the shopkeeper and is a recommended for this zone. If you prefer not to pay, you can replay Dark Woods and grab this for free from after Checkpoint 3.

Grab any health potions you need from the shopkeeper, then enter the tree trunk. If you have the Light, you can use it to burn the Sticky Plants on your way through the zone to avoid being caught by them, which is part of the requirement needed to get the Minor in Elusion achievement. Take the mushroom to the top of the tree trunk, then cross the Flytrap to the horizontal tree trunk, being careful to avoid the pink center of the trap. Grab the two baubles on the inside of the trunk, then climb to the top and grab a third one (#1-3). Cross the Flytraps to the other side of the rift. Be wary of two Toads waiting for you on the other side—they can pull you into the sticky plants if you are not careful. For extra baubles, follow the Bee Dogs that spawn in this area through the maze (see picture on the left) to the Queen Bee Dog and Honeycomb. Otherwise, head toward the checkpoint. Hop up onto the slanted tree root coming up from the ground, then jump to the checkpoint.

You can clear all of the Sticky Plants in front of the first checkpoint by jumping on to the yellow flower right in front of it and swinging your light. You can also jump over the plants standing high enough on the root and using a jump roll to clear the plants. Alternately, you can play in Infantile mode, stand on the rainbow bridge and use the candle right in front of it.

Checkpoint 1 to Checkpoint 2[edit]

Cross the alligator to your right and take out the Toad resting on the tree root. From there, take the mushroom in front of you up to the balcony above, taking out another Toad and snagging a blue bauble (#4). Turn around and then take the same mushroom up to the branch on the opposite side.

From this branch, head forward and turn right. Going forwards, you should see another branch on your right that rises above your current level and ends with a leaf supporting a red monkey and a barrel. That is your destination. Kill any monkey that gets in your way. Facing toward the stem of the leaf, there should be a steep root on your right. At the top of this is a blue bauble (#5). You must jump from this leaf to that root. This jump is tricky and may take you a few times.

Turn around now and wrap around the tree. Follow the branches to the next tree, burning plants as you go. If you already have the key, be wary of the sticky plants. If you become entangled in a sticky plant or a fly trap while you hold a key, you will drop it and need to recover it.

You should find a branch in front of you that goes up and ends with a blue monkey and a blue bauble. Get past the monkey and take the spoils (#6). From here you will see a branch extending from the next tree. Navigate to that branch, then to the next tree. Be wary of the blue monkey and the sticky plants all along it.

Once at the tree, head to the left and jump onto the ledge along the wall. Follow the ledge forward to the Flytraps. Cross the Flytraps and up the wall to reach a chest with two red baubles (#7-8). Cross the ledges from here to the checkpoint and enter the next area.

Checkpoint 2 to Checkpoint 3[edit]

Entering this area, drop down to the clifftop below. Jump down to the lily pad below then immediately turn around and jump into the waterfall. You have now entered Hidden Room 1(Bachelor of Secrets: Short waterfall).

Don't leave yet however, and throw a Mini Bomb at the left waterfall against the back wall to reveal a Hidden Furniture shop(Master of Decor: Shopception). The room is filled with toxic water and contains 5 Fancy Furniture Coins. Go back to Hidden Room 1 and exit it it, which will put you back on the clifftop above.

Navigate the lily pads to the tree trunk and wrap around it to the platform on the other side. Climb onto it and defeat the two blue monkeys waiting for you. Walk up the slope and around the stack of mushroom platforms to a root with a mushroom launcher. Use the launcher to get onto the branches above. Head toward the checkpoint, but don't use it. On the wall to the left there should be a mushroom launcher and a mushroom launcher pod on a ledge below. Drop down and release the pod to create a shortcut from the bottom of the map to the top. Take the mushroom launcher back up onto the branches. In front of the upper checkpoint there should be a bauble (#9). Take it.

Turn around. In the middle of the map, there should be a large, hollow, tilted tree trunk. On top of it are three more baubles (#10-12). From the log, jump onto the nearby leaves. Looking right from the log, you will see a chest resting on a leaf attached to the branch you are on. Retrieve its contents (#13-14).

Drop down onto the hollow log below you. Inside it should be 4 more baubles (#15-17). Jump out the side of it and cross the water to the nearest tree's roots. Wrap around this to the other side, where you will find a branch coming up out of the water. Follow this up until another branch crosses in front of you. Take this branch to the right to find 2 more baubles sitting on decaying leaves (#18-19).

Go back to the intersection. Facing the start of the area, there should be a hollow trunk to your left. Head to it and wrap around to the mushroom to the left of it. Follow the ledges along the wall to the left to find a yellow bauble hidden in a corner (#20). Continue following the ledges along the wall to reach a shop with a green bauble in front of it (#21) Hidden Room 3(Bachelor of Secrets: Overlooking the swamp). If you don't make it along the ledges from the yellow bauble, you can follow a different series of ledges from the upper checkpoint to it. The path should be easy to spot.

When you have what you want from the shop, fall down to the bottom of the map and follow the ledges to the lower checkpoint. Don't take the lower checkpoint, but instead take the mushroom launcher you made earlier up to the upper checkpoint and proceed from there into the next area.

Checkpoint 3 to Checkpoint 4[edit]

Entering from the upper checkpoint, there are 10 baubles for you to collect scattered among the decaying leaves (#22-31). The stems of the leaves are safe, so you don't have to grab them all at once. One is slightly obscured by a leaf above it that also supports a bauble.

Note: The last two require jumping up to another set of leaves, rather than descending to the next level. It is easiest to make this jump from the stem of the lower level to the leaf of the higher level. If you cannot make this jump, you can backtrack into the previous area and take the mushroom back to the upper checkpoint to try again.

Follow the branch you are now on to its end, where you will find a hollow tree stump. On the edge you will find a mushroom launcher pod for you to release. Inside you will find a yellow bauble and two blue baubles (for 12 baubles) (#32-43). Go back to the top and fall down where you released the mushroom launcher pad. Wrap all the way around the trunk to find Hidden Room 4(Bachelor of Secrets: Behind a tree stump).

Do not leave the shop yet, but burn the carpet with the candle and bomb the floor of the shop to reveal a hole beneath. Carefully jump down to where a huge Alligator is waiting, and jump into its mouth to find a Hidden Furniture shop(Master of Decor: Too big to flail). Return the way you came and use the mushroom to get back on top of the tree stump.

Continue into the enormous horizontal log. Take out the monkeys here (there are sun power ups in the barrels if you need them). On the left side of the log you will notice a hole with some platforms leading up to it. Go out of the hole and onto the platforms that continue on the outside of the log. On top of the log you will find 5 more baubles (#44-48).

Jump onto the leaves that follow the log and walk them to the large clifftop in the back corner of the room. On the clifftop is a bauble (#49) and a chest with two red baubles inside(#50-51). Turn around and drop down into the short, hollow tree stump below the cone plant closer to the log to find a green bauble (#52).

Exit the stump and start heading backwards parallel to the log. Cross the gator and go up the tree root and down the next. At the base of the root, you will find lily pads that lead into a cave guarded by a gator. Enter the cave and cross the plants until you come to a lighted region. Jump up the tree roots to reach a mushroom launcher and use it to bounce upwards towards other mushroom pads and ledges all the way up the tree, collecting 10 baubles (#53-62). A green bauble (#63) will be waiting for you at the top.

  • Note: Be careful with your jumps from mushroom to mushroom. Some jumps are longer than they look, and while you do not take fall damage, the fall into the poisonous water below is incredibly unforgiving.
Hidden Room 6

Drop down to the ledge on your right. Walk to the very edge, then jump to the platform below. Be careful for the sticky plant on it. Here you will find Hidden Room 5(Bachelor of Secrets: Many mushroom bounces). Inside you can claim the elite skill, Moto's Breath.

Boss[edit]

The fight with King Toad takes place on a poison pond full of small lily pads that sink when stepped on and three large lily pads in front of the King. There are two rocks among the small lily pads that can be used for safe spots. King Toad has three different attacks:

  • Single Stomp: Raises an eyebrow and glances in the direction he's about to stomp. This sends out a wave that covers the corresponding lily pad and the center lily pad. Players can avoid the attack by moving to the opposing lily pad or dodging through it.
  • Belly Flop: Glances downward and makes heaving motions. The attack sends out two waves that wash over all three large lilies. This attack cannot be dodged due to the two waves being close together. Players can avoid the attack by moving to the small lilies and the rocks for safety.
  • Tongue Lash: Looks left and right, then opens his mouth for a few seconds. If he is not stunned during this time, then he will finish by quickly whipping his tongue from right to left across the entire arena. Players can avoid the attack with a well-timed dodge or fleeing to the rock in a corner next to the right-hand large lily pad.

King Toad is invulnerable to normal attacks. Players must break off Jewel Shards from the Ruby Jewel amulet around his neck. The amulet can only be targeted while he is preparing a single stomp attack; if his next attack is the belly flop or tongue lash, you will not be able to hit the amulet. His pattern of attack typically involves 1-4 stomps and belly flops before using a tongue lash attack. Players must throw the shard into his mouth when he is preparing to use a tongue lash; this will stun and make him vulnerable to damage for around 10 seconds. If the player is solo, King Toad has 625 health total. He can be killed in three cycles with the stick or two cycles using the Slingshot.

Tips[edit]

  • From the final checkpoint, immediately make your way to the middle large lily pad. King Toad will spawn and look left and right, then open his mouth. When he opens his mouth, attack his pendant until 2 shards drop. Wait for him to lash his tongue out, which will knock you down, then take one shard and run to the middle brown platform behind immediately (if you run back before he does his tongue attack, you can get knocked down into the poison water).
  • If you are fast enough after stunning the King Toad, you should be able to attack the jewel before it becomes un-targetable, which drops another shard to replace the ones you have thrown and can easily grab

Digging spots[edit]

A total of 330 baubles can be dug up in Kingdom of Fungus per day.

(These spots require the Mini Bomb to reach.) Return to the previous platform before the three flytraps. Bomb the wall next to the stone block and jump up and into the cannon which will launch you to a high branch. From there, you can access a hidden maze full of poisonous water. Beyond the maze is a 1-Up and two dig spots. Be careful while digging as it is possible to reveal both chests at the same time which will result in obtaining only 50 baubles instead of the intended 100; dig them up one at a time.

Trivia[edit]

  • The name of this zone is a reference to the Mushroom Kingdom, the main setting for many of the games in the Super Mario franchise.
  • The music in Shopception slows/pitches down by half everytime you enter the next shop.[1]
  • Killing the King Toad worked for the Daily Dodger, a historical daily achievement, as the King Toad's tongue attack and single stomps counted for about three dodges if correctly timed.
  • Killing all the Green Toads in King Toad's arena will spawn a Unimpressive King Frog in the background.
