This striking mushroom is very memorable and is prominently featured in stories and media. It is the blue caterpillar’s pedestal in Alice in Wonderland, it kills Babar’s father in the 1931 French children’s book Histoire de Babar by Jean de Brunhoff, and is thrown to affect opponents in Super Mario Bros. video games.
