Enlighten-mint is a Power Mint plant that was released in the 7.4.1 update in Plants vs. Zombies 2 for the Enlighten-mint's Solar Season in Arena.

When planted, she will produce 50 sun. She will then give Enlighten-mint Family plants a temporary boost, increasing their sun production rates and amounts of sun produced for a short time.

Enlighten-mint Family plants include:

Like other Power Mints, she cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. After 5 seconds, Enlighten-mint disappears.

Enlighten-mint requires 100 seed packets to unlock her (she can also be bought for 9.99 USD sometimes).

During the 3rd. "Improve-mint" event (May 24, 2021 - June 2, 2021), during Shine Vine's week through Arena's "Champion Blowout Season", and also during the "Solar Sage's Sagacious Season"; Enlighten-mint returned to the store through its pinata which includes 10 of her seed packets and costs 20 gems.

Origins

Mint(real).jpg

Enlighten-mint is based on the "Lamiaceae." (also known as "mint")

Her name is a pun on the word "enlightenment," which means "the action of enlightening or the state of being enlightened." Enlighten usually means "to inspire," but here, a literal interpretation is used, resulting in the meaning changing to "providing light."

Almanac entry

Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.

Enlighten-mint

SUN COST: 0
RECHARGE: 85

DURATION: 5
FAMILY: Enlighten-mint

Enlighten-mints give a burst of sun when planted, and provide an additional temporary boost to Enlighten-mint Family plants.

Enlighten-mint Family plants:

Primal Sunflower
Shine Vine
Solar Tomato
Sun Bean
Sunflower
Sun-shroom
Toadstool
Twin Sunflower

Enlighten-mint wants to stress that while "enlightenment" is properly understood as "full comprehension of a situation," she herself frequently likes to ask follow-up questions just to be sure.

Strategies

Enlighten-mint is very comparable to Gold Bloom, as they both provide early boosts to sun-producing plants. Although Enlighten-mint requires a full setup of sun-producing plants to maximize the amount of sun she can produce, she can produce more sun overall then Gold Bloom can. Gold Bloom, on the other hand, can be imitated and doesn't require a full set up of sun-producing plants to use, often making it the simpler choice to use.

Enlighten-mint has excellent synergies with Sun-shroom, Solar Tomato, and Toadstool. When boosted by Enlighten-mint, Sun-shroom will quickly grow to his final stage as well as produce a bunch of extra sun, making him a particularly good choice of sun producer when used in combination with Enlighten-mint. Solar Tomato when boosted not only stuns zombies for longer, but deals damage and produces a noticeably larger amount of sun. Finally, Toadstool, when boosted, takes a shorter amount of time to chew zombies, as well as producing more sun when a zombie is finally swallowed.

Enlighten-mint can also work pretty effectively in Arena and Penny's Pursuit to help increase sun production quickly.

However, it is strongly recommended not to bring Enlighten-mint into levels with "don't lose more than X plants" objectives as she will disappear after a while just like the other mints.

Trivia

  • Though Gold Bloom is also in Enlighten-mint's family, she gains no bonus when this plant is planted.
  • Enlighten-mint has the shortest duration out of all the Power Mints, with a 5 second duration at Level 1 and a 9.5 second duration at Level 10.
  • Enlighten-mint was the last Power Mint to be released.
  • Enlighten-mint is the only Power Mint to be a seasonal plant.
  • Enlighten-mint is the only Power Mint to be obtained by collecting seed packets rather than having it be purchased for 100 mints.
  • Like Fila-mint, Enlighten-mint hovers above the ground, but still cannot be planted above the water in Big Wave Beach.
  • She is the only Power Mint banned in Last Stand levels due to the fact that she can give the player sun which allows them to plant more plants.
  • Most of the plants in Enlighten-mint's family are female.
  • Enlighten-mint piñata cannot be purchased more than 80 times in a single profile. You have to wait until a next appearance of it to be able to upgrade her to higher levels.
