    Spits burning pulp, dealing a small amount of damage to the enemies.

    Plant feature: Red plant, full of anger

    Dragonfruit grew up with anxiety, as he always wished to count how many seeds are there in his pulp. It's also easy for him to get upset, because there's always someone suspecting him to be somewhat related to sesame seeds. He later thought these through, throw out all problems, and let them become the zombies' headache instead!


Plant Food effect

When given Plant Food, Dragonfruit spits a large fireball that rolls through the lane.


The fireball now leaves a fire trail that lasts for few seconds.
