This article is about the current version of DF.
A small humanoid resembling a walking mushroom with arms and legs. It lives far underground near water and soil.

Plump helmet men are walking plump helmet creatures that live in caverns. They are made up of "plump helmet man tissue"; Dwarf Fortress' item naming system will turn this into "Plump helmet man plump helmet man tissue" upon death. They are non-hostile and are relatively easy to kill. You can't butcher plump helmet men due to them being intelligent creatures, and your dwarves cannot eat their tissue either. Despite not possessing eyes, they possess the [EXTRAVISION] token which gives them sight.

Plump helmet men are extremely magma and fire resistant - Dwarven Science Experiments have shown that they can live for several seasons while submerged in 7/7 magma (while on fire).

As of v0.42.01, plump helmet men are playable in adventure mode along with the various other animal people. However, they cannot speak, which severely limits their ability to interact with other intelligent creatures - they cannot receive quests, cannot trade with others and cannot hire companions, forcing them to experience all the fun alone.

Some dwarves like plump helmet men for their similarity with food.

Plump helmet men are known for their clever jokes and games, as well as their innocent, almost childlike nature. This had led to them being universally beloved by all sentient creatures of the world, as well as dwarves, who find them both sweeter and more succulent than the farm-grown variety. For years dwarves have been trying to find a way to brew these majestic creatures alive, but the scientific effort has been frustrated by the tendency of dwarven brewers to pounce on any plump helmet man they see and eat their way through the still-living myconid in an orgy of mushroom juice and drool.

However, beneath the dumb exterior, they have a darker side. They are secretly geniuses, who strive constantly to escape.
