Plants vs. Zombies Wiki
Power Mints are powerful plants you can acquire through Arena mode.


They provide a big boost to plants in their family.


Power Mints are special plants that boost a specific plant family. They cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. They also last a limited time before disappearing, much like Puff-shroom, except much shorter.

Power Mints can only be upgraded by using mints to buy their seed packets in the store. Unlike other plants, upgrading a Power Mint does not require the use of coins and instead can be upgraded for free. Mints can be obtained from the Arena reward streak, Tournament-end rewards from Arena, and from certain quests in the Travel Log.

General abilities

Not counting individual special abilities, all Power Mints can also have these following abilities:

  • They cannot be destroyed by most means during the effect time:
    • They cannot be eaten by zombies. Instead, the zombies will just walk through them.
    • They cannot be carried away by Zombie Parrot.
    • They cannot be crushed by crashing zombies. If Troglobite or Arcade Zombie run into them, they will stop pushing ice blocks or the arcade machine and just go ahead.
    • They cannot be transformed into sheep by Wizard Zombie and can't be covered by octopus from Octo Zombie.
    • The player cannot shovel them.
    • They can only be destroyed when Zombot Tuskmaster 10,000 BC makes ice blocks over where they are planted.
  • Power Mints can not be pulled by Fisherman Zombie and can also block him from pulling other plants behind them.
    • They can not be planted directly on the water in Big Wave Beach without Lily Pad, but they still survive if the Lily Pad is destroyed.
  • They are not affected by Boombox Zombie.
  • They cannot be swapped with Escape Root.
  • They can block Jester Zombie's reflected projectiles but not the zombie himself.
  • They are immune to freezing winds in Frostbite Caves.
  • Power Mints can block Zombie Bull and Rodeo Legend Zombie, stop them from charging and force them to throw the Imp.
  • Dr. Zomboss will be stunned when he attempts to ram them.


  • Glitter Zombie can kill Power Mints on vine plants. This is a glitch.
  • The Appease-mint boosts the most amount of plants in its family.
    • However, He is also the only mint that rarely boosts his family's Plant Food effect.
  • None of them appear in the chinese version.
