- Not to be confused with Reinforce-mint, another Power Mint with a similar name.
Enforce-mint is a Power Mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When planted, he will shrink and immobilize ten random zombies on the lawn making them weaker, similar to Shrinking Violet. He also give all Enforce-mint Family plants a temporary boost, increasing their stats for the entirety of his duration.
Enforce-mint family plants include:
- Bonk Choy
- Celery Stalker
- Phat Beet
- Snap Pea
- Tangle Kelp
- Wasabi Whip
Like other Power Mints, he cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. After 8 seconds, Enforce-mint disappears.
Enforce-mint is based on the "Lamiaceae." (also known as "mint")
His name is a pun on the word "enforcement," meaning "the act of compelling observance of or compliance with a law, rule, or obligation." Enforcement is usually associated with violence, thus Enforce-Mint's muscular appearance and boosting several melee-based plants.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.
SUN COST: 0
Zombies Shrunk: 10

Enforce-mint is best used against large groups of dangerous zombies such as Chicken Wrangler Zombies, Weasel Hoarders and especially Gargantuars. When used, all zombies on screen are shrunk to miniature size just like Shrinking Violet's Plant Food ability, including Imps, Zombie Chickens, and Ice Weasels, making Enforce-mint a great plant to use during large waves of zombies.
Enforce-mint works well with certain melee plants such as Wasabi Whip, Celery Stalker, and Parsnip, as they will deal more damage to dangerous zombies, with the capability to clear out hordes of zombies, especially when you level them up.
Enforce-mint's biggest weakness is that plants in his family lack any range, meaning that creating strategies that use Enforce-mint can be difficult.
- Despite being able to shrink zombies, Shrinking Violet is not part of his family.
- Despite being a fire plant, Wasabi Whip is in this family instead of the Pepper-mint Family.
- Before 7.1.1, Bowling Bulb was in his family, before being moved over to the Appease-mint family.
- His leaves resemble two arms flexing their muscles.
