The Crumbling Root is a 'harvestable' that was introduced during the Ratboy's Nightmare Update. It is one of the many collectibles that are needed by the players in order to complete the entries of the Itempedia of the Nightmare.

The Crumbling Root can be found practically anywhere in the Nightmare, often appearing in bulks or in pairs, although it is rarely seen by itself. They can be found in various places that include but are not limited to:


As implied by its description, it is an ugly mushroom that can quickly degrade itself. Beige-like 'antennas' can be seen sticking upwards from the cap and a pile of degraded biomatter at the very bottom of the Crumbling Root.

Players may trade in the Crumbling Root to the Gargoyle while making a deal with the NPC, which is collectively known as the Gargoyle's Deals. However, this can only be traded in if and only the deal is available throughout the servers, as one deal can only appear each real-life day.


  • The Crumbling Root is one of the most common collectibles seen throughout the Nightmare, others being the Bad Dust, Dream Mushroom, and the Clock.
  • It can also be obtained as a possible 'uncommon' drop from the Nightmare Lantern.
