Worst SMW Hazard

I was just thinking, what is the worst hazard/enemy/item to have on the map? Discuss.

Multiple platforms made out of death tiles that move around psuedo-randomly while you fight on a non-moving arena area.  That would bite.

But really, Poison Shrooms?  You must play on some tight(literally) maps to fall victim to those enough to say that they're the worst hazard.

I'd say podoboos, seeing how they show up so suddenly and it's quite a matter of luck avoiding them unless you're at the very top of the map.

Of course a map containing death tiles on moving platforms can be awful (not even going to say anything about maps solely made of death tiles heheh), but I'm rather thinking of things that affect the most agreeable of maps.

Wow. Very different opinions. Just to let everyone know, if its a hazard/item, it is probably listed (I notice a few ideas popping up, and no votes on them, though bots is not listed...).

It's less of the mushroom itself and more of knowing it's out there, and accidentally slamming into another hazard trying to avoid it by not paying enough attention.

I would have to say pow/mod blocks because they are so hard to avoid without being invincible.

what makes the poison mushroom so dreaded is the fact that it remains out there until somebody dies, it comes out of an item box and overall is just a vicious idea.

You hit the box, expecting help, but getting killed, it's like putting razorblades inside of an apple

It's the only item that I set to 10 in the options(not THE only item).  Does that tell you something?  *sweetness*

I say, there's NO worst hazard in SMW.

ALL of those make the game challenging.

The worst hazards are Bowser Fire and the Podoboos. They pop up immediately and kill you before you find them.
You can run from a poison mushroom or a spiked wall, but Bowser Fires and Podoboos are almost impossible to avoid.
Especially if you set them to Very Fast. :shock:
