Overview: The Fungus Ray, or "Ray o' Fungi" as I call it, combines the elements that mid-tier elite battlers enjoy: Rarity and beauty.

The Good: 11 icons spread among only 3 icon types is nice to see, though still not terribly great . In an age where large-spread weapons like Scroll of Knowledge and Scroll of the Fool are too common, the Fungus Ray stands kinda-sorta proud. A solid 11 icons provides a nice advantage in L97 tournaments. Since the Fungus Ray is rare enough, it may not be accounted for in a player's defense strategy. (Though this probably belongs in the next section, Portable Kiln is a much better 11-icon option when it comes to L97 11-iconers.)

The Bad: Put simply, the Ray isn't cheap for what it does. Currently is listed for around 2 million Neopoints, an amount for which a battler can easily get more icons. For instance, the 14-icon Dr. Sloths Personal Bath Buddy and 15-icon Stone Foam Finger can both be had for less than the price of the Fungus Ray.

The Ugly Truth: Outside of L97 tournaments, the Fungus Ray really doesn't have a lot of value. The upgrades mentioned above are cheaper, and for serious contenders of L97, there are some better options. Overall, the weapon is a poor choice, but not totally worthless.
