In Animal Forest, Dōbutsu no Mori e+ and Animal Crossing, mushrooms are fairly rare. They are only found early in the morning from the 15 to 25 October from 8am to 9am. In this game there are only 5 every day, and after every 15 minutes one disappears.
Five types of mushrooms are found in Animal Crossing: City Folk, and all appear around the Mushrooming Season. The Rare Mushroom in City Folk is unique, as it is the only mushroom not found around trees. They are buried under trees, and have to be dug up. If you give Wendell any of the mushrooms, he will give you a pattern.
Special Stump Patterns let mushrooms grow all year round in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Mushrooms do not grow around Special Stump Patterns every day and will appear on random days. Leaving these patterns will give an opportunity to receive all mushroom types. Rare mushrooms can only be found in perfect towns and, like Animal Crossing: City Folk, are buried underground.
A new type is included, the Famous Mushroom, which sells for 16,000 Bells. When eaten the well-known growing sound from the Mario series can be heard and the player's size increases. The player returns to regular size shortly afterwards.
