The official name of this plant is Auberninja. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

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.


The real-life eggplant/aubergine in which Auberninja is based on

Auberninja's design is based on the Solanum melongena, also known as the eggplant (in US and Australia), and a ninja, a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. 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.

    He has received training in traditional ninjutsu since childhood, is hailed as a genius who is only encountered once in a millennium in the ninja community, proficient in all kinds of ninjutsu, and was also chosen by the ninja king himself to be their successor, but he is not happy, because he lost to Bonk Choy once, and he thinks that he is not invincible if he does not defeat Bonk Choy, and he has dwelt on that ever since.
