Myconids are a race of intelligent, roughly humanoid fungi in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing games. They first appeared in the first edition of In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords (1981), and then in the original Monster Manual II (1983).
They communicate by emitting spores, and older myconids are able to achieve several magical effects with their spores including the temporary animation of dead animals into a form of undead. Myconids tend to be shy, thoughtful, and reclusive, and live peaceful lives of communal harmony in their isolated underground groves.
The Myconid is a mushroom-like enemy that attacks by sending spores out of its body, bearing with this some similarities to the Moldy Corpses found in other games. Their encounters are somewhat rare, often found in hidden areas.
Being just plants, they remain stationary and won't pose much of a threat, as even if they start attacking, they will usually die in a single hit from most attacks by the time they are encountered.
