Jerkshrooms are enemies that only appear in the Dilapidated Arboretum.TBS They are exclusive to the Bad Seed DLC.


When a Jerkshroom spots the player, it will do one of the following actions:

  • It will charge at them, and use a small vertical swipe attack that can be parried or rolled through.
  • If the player is facing the Jerkshroom, it will hide in its shell until the player looks in the opposite direction. It will be impervious to most attacks while in its shell, with the exception of all weapons with the "ignores shields" trait.



  • Description: Bends down to negate attacks using its shell.
  • Cannot be blocked, parried or dodge rolled.
  • Weapons and skills that ignore shields will still be able to damage the Jerkshroom while it's hiding.




  • Description: Charges at the player, swiping vertically upon impact.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • If the Jerkshroom is hiding, then it will always perform this move afterwards.




As Jerkshrooms are small but often semi-abundant, it's best to have a weapon or skill that works in a relatively large area of effect, as they can effectively handle a group of Jerkshrooms. Any weapons or skills that can ignore shields work wonders for quickly killing these enemies, as they can bypass the hide and shorten the time needed to kill Jerkshrooms by a fair amount in most cases. The Homunculus rune can also be an effective way to handle them, as it ignores shields and can often latch onto them with ease. If you can kill Jerkshrooms before they can hide, then they should pose little to no problem.


  • A Jerkshroom was prominently featured in the Bad Seed DLC launch trailer alongside the new YeeterTBS enemy.
    • Jerkshrooms first appeared in the Bad Seed DLC teaser, once again alongside the Yeeter.TBS
