Bruce Bamboo (竹小龙; pinyin: zhú xiǎolóng) is a plant from Plants vs. Zombies Online. It is obtained through the completion of Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum - Level 2-1. Bruce Bamboos hit enemies rapidly in a 3x3 radius around themselves, dealing considerably high damage.

Plant Food effect

When given Plant Food, it rapidly hits zombies in front of it and behind it with its nunchaku.

In Adventure Mode

If there is any enemy target in the left and middle column, it will attack these columns. Otherwise, it will not unleash its ability.



With powerful damage, fast attack and recharge like the Bonk Choy and the ability of attacking the adjacent zombies, it can prove to be very useful, especially when planting near pathways in Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum. The Cavalry Zombie can be easily defeated by it, along with Zombie Piggies. Like Bonk Choy, a Wall-nut should be used to protect it.



  • It shares a bit in common with Bruce Lee, hence the name: Bruce Bamboo.
    • Its Chinese name (竹小龙) is based on Bruce Lee's Chinese name (李小龙).
      • Formerly, its Chinese name was misspelled as 竹小笼, meaning "Small Bamboo Cage."
    • It is similar to a nunchaku (also known as a nunchuck), a weapon used in Ancient Japan, which is a symbol of Bruce Lee.
  • The bandana it wears during its Plant Food effect resembles the one Bamboom wears.
  • Its ability is similar to that of Bonk Choy.
    • Additionally, the official Chinese translation for Bonk Choy is 菜问, which is based on Yip Man (叶问), Bruce Lee's teacher. This implies that it is based on Bruce Lee.
  • In previous versions of the game, despite covering a 3x3 area around it, it actually could not hit the zombies directly one row above or below it.
  • It is one of the few plants to have an ordinary name within its name (in this case, "Bruce").
