1-Up Mushrooms are green mushrooms that grant an extra life to whoever eats one. They are common and are usually needed when completing missions. These mushrooms are usually located in hard-to-reach places or areas that might seem risky. 1-Up Mushrooms are always able to cause positive effects.


Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted DreamsEdit

In the Luigi's Mansion series, 1-Up Mushrooms make their debut in Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams. Normally, they are found in hidden areas, but they are also found in areas that might seem risky and might even result in losing a life. Sometimes, if Luigi collects all the Shiny Notes that are activated by the use of a ? Coin, a 1-Up Mushroom will appear and the player needs to collect it quick otherwise it will disappear. Extra Lives can also be obtained for every 50 Coins and/or 50 Ghost Combs collected.

Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the MansionEdit

1-Up Mushrooms reappear in the sequel, Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the Mansion. Basically, they have the same method like they did in the previous game, as they grant the user an extra life if eaten. Collecting all Shiny Notes that appear through the activation of a ? Coin will often make a 1-Up Mushroom appear, usually three or rarely, five 1-Up Mushrooms. ? Coins might also make coins appear. If Luigi manages to collect them all before they vanish, he will receive an extra life. Like the game's prequel, Luigi can also earn an extra life for every 50 Coins collected. Collecting Ghost Combs will also grant Luigi an extra life, but with the requirement of 100 as opposed to 50. Half-Up Mushrooms also make an appearance in this game. They are half of a single 1-Up Mushroom and if Luigi collects two Half-Up Mushrooms, they will form one whole 1-Up Mushroom and Luigi will earn an extra life.

Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!Edit

1-Up Mushrooms return in Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!. Like in the previous games, 1-Up Mushrooms will grant an extra life to Luigi whenever he eats one. 1-Up Mushrooms have the same ways of being found. Collecting all Shiny Notes that appear will once again make 1-Up Mushrooms appear for Luigi to collect. Collecting 50 Coins and 100 Ghost Combs will also grant Luigi extra lives. Half-Up Mushrooms return with the same function.
