|“It is not pictures! It is far sight. I have discovered a special concoction of lichen and moss, which reveal things that are happening far away!”|
Fungus is a member of the Upply and a skilled magician.
Fungus, along with Plundar, and Korgran, took on the same request Vangelis sent them to complete. They were assigned to retrieve the Skull of Hazza D'ur from the dangerous Dungeons of Shintaro and bring it back to Vangelis so it can be destroyed.
After meeting Adam, the three make it through the traps easily and find the skull. However, when Korgran touches it, Dark Magic seeps through his body, so he drops it. The group realizes the skull is evil, so they carry it using Korgran's Axe.
The Lowly make it back to the Ivory City, but Vangelis has different plans. He tells the group they can possess so much power, but the Lowly insist that the Skull of Hazza D'ur must be destroyed. After realizing the truth, Vangelis presses a button, and the Lowly fall through a pit.
Fungus greets Cole after he wakes up. He introduces himself and when Cole asks if they can go on another quest, he backs down. Korgran then explains why they don't want to go on another adventure.
After Korgran explains their story, Cole promises to help the Lowly and renames them to the "Upply".
Fungus and the Lowly explore the caverns to find a way out, but the Lowly don't find anything. When Cole discovers his Elemental Energy, the Upply follow Cole as they swim out of Rock-Bottom and find themselves at a lava stream.
Fungus and the Lowly are chased by the Lava Monster. They find some mine carts and decide to ride it. After it's all over, they find themselves at the Heart of the Mountain. Fungus and the Lowly explore the ancient temple and discover Cole's mother performed the Spinjitzu Burst. The Lowly watch Cole try to perform it, but he fails at it.
Fungus performs some magic which allows them to see the Ninja. However, they are running away from Grief-Bringer.
Fungus helps attach wheels to Fire Stone Mech and ride in one of the mine carts while Cole uses the mech to push the carts. During their ride, the Lowly encounter the Lava Monster and Dire Bats, so Fungus uses his Magic to ward off the attacks. When Cole is busy fighting the Lava Monster, the mine carts almost head into the lava, but Cole saves everyone and they reach the Ivory City. The Lowly then cheer and chant "Upply".
Fungus, Cole, and the rest of the Upply discover the Ninja locked in a cage while the Geckles and Munce are back working. Cole assigns Fungus and Korgran to liberate everyone.
Korgran beats an Awakened Warriors attempting to whip Murtessa. Fungus then gives her the keys and tells everyone to free themselves when they give the signal.
As Cole is fighting the Skull Sorcerer, Fungus and Korgran jump into action. They tell the Geckles and Munce to free themselves so they could join in.
Fungus helps the Upply, Geckles, Munce, and Ninja fight the Awakened Warriors. Although they are overwhelmed, Vania and the Winged Guards of Shintaro aid them as well. Cole then unlocks the Spinjitzu Burst and the Awakened Warriors and Grief-Bringer are destroyed.
Fungus watches Vania become queen and promise equality for everyone. Fungus then says farewell to Cole as he leaves.
Before trapped at Rock-Bottom, Fungus mainly wore a tall, white hat as well as a long, white coat to cover himself. During the years spent at Rock-Bottom, his uniform was stained with dirt and fungi began growing on his hat as well as his shirt. After Vangelis was removed from power and Vania was crowned queen, his uniform appears clean.
