Matangos are a collective race of anthropomorphic, magical mushrooms featured in Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time.
Matangos are a race of giant, sapient magical mushrooms with anthropomorphic features. They typically have a large cap on a thick stalk with a pair of small arms and small roots underneath the stalk to move around. They may or may not have facial features on the stalk as well. Due to their highly toxic nature in spite of good taste, eating them is considered to be taboo.
There are 3 types of matangos encountered:
—Description of regular Matango from Strange Notebook
—Description of Noxious Toadstool from Strange Notebook
—Description of King Matango from Strange Notebook
Powers and Abilities
Caution must be taken in order to deal Matangos, as they attack by generating poisonous spores from beneath their cap once they close enough to a victim. Do not be fooled by their seemingly edible appearance, as those who foolishly eat matango will die in matter of seconds.
- Matangos are arguably named after/homage of Toho's titular parasitic mushrooms of the same name.
- Other inspiration of matangos may the mushroom monster Akko, Lotte, and Sucy accidently fused with in Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade.
