The SendingStone review

The Violet Fungus is a somewhat underwhelming creature in terms of challenge rating and abilities, but it can still pose a threat to lower-level parties. Its spores can cause paralysis, and its melee attack can deal decent damage. However, its lack of mobility and low AC make it an easy target for ranged attacks. In terms of flavor, the Violet Fungus could fit well in a fungal-infested dungeon or as a natural hazard in a wilderness setting. Overall, it's a decent addition to a DM's arsenal, but not a standout monster.

Violet Fungus is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Violet Fungus Pathfinder edition. Want to use Violet Fungus in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
