The official name of this plant is Bambrook. 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.

Bambrook (竹小弟; pinyin: zhú xiǎo di) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He pushes zombies back for a short distance when he meets a zombie for the first time. Then he will block the zombies until there are no zombies in front of him. He can heal himself, so he can stand a zombie for a long time.


Phyllostachys aurea

Bambrook is based on the phyllostachys aurea, known as fishpole bamboo or golden bamboo. It is native to Fujian and Zhejiang in China.

Bambrook's Chinese name is 竹小弟. The 小弟 part actually means a little brother or an inferior guy. Its English name 'Bambrook' is also a portmanteau of Bamboo and 'brook', meaning 'endure', also referring to its ability.

Its costume is a reference to the headband of Sun Wukong, who is also known as the Monkey King.

Finally one day he mastered his exclusive skill, Consecutive Backflip. His efforts pay off. He finally played as a leading role in a drama, the plot of which is: "One day in the forest a ferocious wolf kidnapped a pig. His mother was brave and looked for the wolf's lair to rescue him..."

  • He is the first plant to have a special death animation (excluding level 2 and 3 Tall-nut); he will break in half when he dies.
  • His internal name is "sugarcane," even though, visually, it is not one.
