The official name of this plant is Board Beans. 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.

Board Beans (蚕豆突击队; pinyin: cándòu tújí duì) is the fourth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The beans inside the pod fly towards a nearby zombie. Then, they start shooting peas at it. After attacking the zombie, the beans fly back into the pod and must recharge before they can attack again.

Origins

BroadBeans

Board Beans are based on Vicia faba, namely horse beans, or broad beans.

Their name is a pun of "broad beans" and  "board", referring to the board of a plane along with the costume and "broad beans", the plant they're based on.

Almanac entry

蚕豆突击队能发动突击队员攻击周围的僵尸。

特点: 发动蚕豆突击战士攻击一定范围内的僵尸
植物特征:绿色植物、飞行植物、兄弟成群
蚕豆们在飞行学校学习的时候获得了“最佳飞行员”的称号,毕业后,他们迫不及待地组成了一支飞行队。尽管蚕豆们常常吹嘘自己的飞行技术,不过大家似乎都不太敢踏上他们颠簸的母舰。

    In English:

    Board Beans sends out commandos to attack zombies in a nearby area.

    Special: Attack with horse bean team in range.

    Plant feature: green plant, flying plant, brother group

    The Board Beans won the "best pilot" title in flying school, and after graduation, they couldn't wait to form a flying team. But although the Board Beans often brag about their flying skills, no one seems to dare set foot upon their bumpy mothership.

Strategies

While they take a while to recharge, they are a strong plant, and are good in many worlds outside of Sky City, although Sky City and Big Wave Beach are a bit more ideal due to them being airborne. Costing as much as Carrotillery, they provide more damage per second, so they are a good choice for Sky City levels, and also decent for others. Overall, they may need to get some defensive and supportive plants to work nicely.

Trivia

  • In the iOS version of the game, the Almanac entry erroneously states that Board Beans can absorb thunderbolts, which is Ampthurium's ability.
    • This was fixed in the Android release.
  • Their Plant Food effect lasts for one minute, making it the longest time for all plants.
  • If the Board Beans' peas are flying around whilst the carrier is being destroyed, all the Board Beans peas will also be destroyed, regardless of Plant Food.
  • Board Beans has three different English names:
    • Horse Bean Commando is the translation of its Chinese name.
    • Horsebean is the English name given to it in the Sky City trailer.
    • Board Beans is the official name provided by Colorful Wish, an elite player that works closely with PopCap Shanghai to get better contact with international players.
