Auberninja (茄子忍者: pinyin: qiézi rěnzhě) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 2.2.8 update.
He attacks by throwing shurikens at zombies in an arc pattern, hitting all targets in his lane twice, once it moves forward and once it returns.
His name is derived from "aubergine," an alternative name for "eggplant" (in British English, French, German, and Dutch), and "ninja."
His costume, a ninja headband, is a reference to the Naruto series.

Plant Food upgrade
When fed with Plant Food, Auberninja will throw five regular shurikens into all five lanes on the lawn.
When fed with Plant Food while costumed, Auberninja will now throw five gold shurikens instead, which stun zombies and are more effective.
Use him as a more efficient version of Tornacorn or Bloomerang, as he is less expensive and recharges himself faster, you can also use defensive plants (The most recommended option is Primal Wall-nut for obvious reasons) in order to protect him, just make sure that he is at least to level 3 because he can releases fiery shurikends and can damage in other rows.
- He is the only plant in the main series to be based on an eggplant.
- His costume is a Forehead Protector, similar to the typical ninja bands.
