"He Shoots, He Spores!"
    —Shroomboom's official catchphrase

Shroomboom is a one-eyed mushroom who is one of the eight new Skylanders in Skylanders: Giants. He is in the Life element. His Series 2 counterpart is named Sure Shot Shroomboom.

Background

Personality

Courageous and determined, Shroomboom lets nothing stand in his way. He's always ready to parachute into danger, no matter the risk.[1]

Biography

Shroomboom was most unfortunate to have been born in a pizza topping garden belonging to Kaos. Growing up among his fellow fungi, he knew it was only a matter of time before a late night craving would bring about their demise. So Shroomboom took a twig and a strand of spider web and made a slingshot. One by one, he launched all of his friends over the garden fence before flinging himself over to join them. Then he guided them all to the edge of the island and leapt to freedom, using his mushroom cap to catch a friendly breeze. Now as a member of the Skylanders, Shroomboom continues to perform courageous deeds... but he can be hard to find on pizza night.

Story

History

Growing up, there were two words Shroomboom lived in fear of: pizza night. As one of the group of living mushrooms inhabiting a pizza-topping garden owned by Kaos, Shroomboom knew he was destined to become part of a tasty midnight snack. While the other mushrooms resigned to their fate, Shroomboom decided there must be more to life than being sliced, cooked and slathered in cheese. Fashioning a catapult from a twig and a length of spider web, he fired his fungi friends over the wall, before launching himself over too. Their route to safety was not easy, but with Shroomboom taking the lead, the entire mushroom crop made their escape. It is believed a family of pineapple chunks weren't lucky. Shroomboom now uses his slingshot skills as a member of the Skyanders, althrough he is still haunted by the smell of mozzarella and tomato sauce.[2]

Gameplay

Shroomboom attacks by shooting exploding mushrooms with a slingshot. His secondary attack is a force field of mushrooms. He can also launch slow mushrooms that glide before they fall and explode and launch himself out of his slingshot.
