Appears in Deepwood Shrine. These mushroom beasties scatter spores all over dungeons. When their caps are red, they are invincible.

In The Minish Cap, Puffstools have red caps and are near invincible in this state. If Link uses the Gust Jar on them, they turn gray, leaving them open to attacks. Puffstools appear in Deepwood Shrine and some caves. When they shake, they release spores that slow down Link. These spores can be cleared with the Gust Jar.

Other Appearances

Cadence of Hyrule

Puffstools appear as enemies in Cadence of Hyrule. They behave like the Mushroom enemies from Crypt of the NecroDancer, remaining stationary and releasing spores every fourth beat.
