This article is about Mycons in Torchlight II. For the Ember Mycon from Torchlight I, see: Strider

Mycons are a race of fungus creatures in Torchlight II. They are primarily found in the Rotted Path and Fungal Caves in Grunnheim. Mycons have a tendency to emerge from underground, disguising themselves as harmless mushrooms until an enemy comes near.

Trivia: Mycons are a reference to a fungal space faring race from Star Control II
