Aggro Brocco (大力花菜; pinyin: dàlì huācài) was a plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West. He picked up zombies using a suplex when they got close and threw them onto the ground a few squares in front of him. He then has to recharge.
His special attack is where he throws a zombie off-screen after his suplex. Unlike plants like Blover, this attack does not instantly kill the zombie: it instead returns back into the lawn after ten seconds.
His appearance is based on cauliflower, an annual plant that reproduces by seed and 1 of several vegetable cultivars of the wild cabbage (Brassica oleracea) in the genus Brassica, which is in the family Brassicaceae.
Suburban Almanac entry
In English: Aggro Brocco
Grabs nearby zombies, swings them to the back, and then slams them back in front of it, with the probability of directly throwing the zombie off screen.
Aggro Brocco once dreamed of becoming a superhero, just like the ones he saw in the comic books he read. For this he rejected the confession of love from the cute Tomato-chan, joined the judo club at his school, and went to the alley behind the school to execute his justice after school... Until finally, he received his retention letter.
Aggro Brocco is an excellent plant for the early-game, despite his high cost and remarkably slow recharge for a stalling plant. His ability to grab zombies, deal damage, and then throw them a few squares back puts the zombie in an infinite loop in which they are incapable of attacking until the zombie is killed. The recharge time that occurs after attacking isn't an issue here: the time it takes for the zombie to reach Aggro Brocco again after being attacked matches the recharge.
However, due to Aggro Brocco being able to attack only one zombie at a time, he fares poorly against swarms and will likely be eaten. If keeping Aggro Brocco on the field is still desired for some reason, it is recommended to pair him with plants that can attack multiple zombies, such as Laser Bean.
