Citron's name is derived from Citrus medica, known as the citron in English. However, its round body and orange color resemble the more widely known orangeCitron could also be a combination of citrus (a family of fruits including oranges, lemons, limes, kumquats, grapefruits, citrons, etc.) and the suffix tron, which usually relates to something mechanical, electrical, or futuristic (which makes sense, as Citron is unlocked in Far Future in Plants vs. Zombies 2 and shoots balls of electric plasma).


Plants vs. Zombies 2

Citron's first appearance is in Plants vs. Zombies 2, as the third plant unlocked in Far Future. Citron attacks by firing a high damage plasma ball, but needing to charge between shots.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Main article: Citron (PvZ: GW2)

Citron reappears in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, the first Plant from Plants vs. Zombies 2 to become playable in the spin-off series. Citron received both a backstory and visual redesign, now sporting a pair of sunglasses, an orange beam, and legs out of citrus peels.

Citron's role is that of a tank, having both high health and infinite ammo similar to All-Star with the ability to go into a ball form which allows easier mobility at the cost of having little means to defend themselves.

Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars (China only)

Main article: Citron (PvZ: AS)

Citron appears in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars, here he is the second plant in the Citron line. He attacks by firing large balls of plasma at zombies, and deals damage to all zombies in their lane when his Plant Food/Anger effect is activated.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes

Main article: Citron (PvZH)

Citron's next appearance is in the turn-based mobile game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, where he is one of the two Guardian and Smarty heroes. His signature Superpower is Peel Shield, which prevents all Plants on the field from being hurt that turn as well as drawing a card. His other superpowers are Transmogrify, Nut Signal and Root Wall.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville

Main article: Citron (PvZ: BfN)

Citron's latest reappearance is the third-person shooter game Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. He is an PvZ BfN Defend Class Icon Defend class who specializes in providing a mobile defense.

Compared to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Citron's arsenal has been largely reworked. His projectile is now a 50 ammo triple barrel cannon, his ball form has been reduced to a sprint that can even be used backwards and zooming in will instead create their Peel Shield to block off damage.

Unlike Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Citron no longer has any Character variants, but instead has a large number of character upgrades, some of which grant abilities to Citron's primary weapon and abilities.
