|Found In||The Corruption|
|This item cannot be crafted.|
|Material In||Vile Powder|
Since the Vile Mushroom can be used for only one purpose, crafting Vile Powder out of all Vile Mushrooms in the player's inventory is advisable. Even if the player doesn't plan to use Vile Powder, it sells for more coins: 1 Vile Mushroom (10 copper) = 5 Vile Powder (20 copper each) = 100 Copper (or 1 Silver).
To farm Vile Mushrooms, you can make long strips of dirt, then corrupt it by connecting it to the Corruption or by using Corrupt Seeds. Once the dirt is corrupt, you can then clear the grass often to allow more spaces for mushrooms to grow. Like ordinary Mushrooms, Vile Mushrooms will not grow if there is any type of wall behind them.
- Unlike all other Mushrooms, the Vile Mushroom cannot be eaten.
- Throwing Purification Powder on growing Vile Mushrooms will convert them to regular Mushrooms.
