For the plants in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that the line is based on, see Kernel-pult and Cob Cannon.

The Corn line (玉米系; pinyin: yùmǐ xì) was a Class A PvZAS Icon Brave.pngBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars .

The line consisted of Kernel-pult (玉米投手; pinyin: yùmǐ tóushǒu), Popcorn-pult (爆米花投手; pinyin: bàomǐhuā tóushǒu), and Cob Cannon (玉米加农炮; pinyin: yùmǐ jiānóngpào). They all specialized in stunning groups of enemies.

Kernel-pult attacked by lobbing corn kernels, Popcorn-pult attacked by lobbing individual pieces of popcorn, and Cob Cannon attacked by firing yellow lasers.



All members of the Corn line were based on the crop maize (Zea mays), also known as corn, a type of large grain plant which originates from southern Mexico.

The first and third tiers were based on the plants from Plants vs. Zombies, with Kernel-pult sharing its appearance with version from Plants vs. Zombies 2, and Cob Cannon having a completely new design in this game.


The second tier was based on popcorn, a snack created by heating up kernels from certain varieties of corn that is popularly sold in movie theaters. It's design references this by having Popcorn-pult hold its popcorn in a striped bag and wear 3D glasses, objects which are also typically used in movie theaters.
