The fungal mage is a monster found in the Polypore Dungeon. If players come within one square away from it, it will infect them, dealing fast hits of 15-17 life points. However, this can be prevented by using neem oil on it.

Fungal mages have the highest drop rate for fungal flakes, and are known for dropping large amounts of potato cacti quite frequently.
