Fire Peashooter is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise.
Fire Peashooter is a Peashooter who launches fire peas rather than simple peas. Throughout the series, Fire Peashooter has gone through a variety of names and designs, but the basic concept has remained the same.
As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Fire Peashooter has appeared in six games.
The "fire" part comes from her being on fire and shooting flaming peas.
- Main article: Flaming Pea
Flaming Pea made her first appearance in the ill-fated Facebook exclusive 3D-tower-defense game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. She was unlocked after reclaiming The Flaming Lot and took 6 hours to harvest.
She cost 125 sun and shot flaming peas at zombies in a 5x5 area around herself. These flaming peas dealt more damage than the average pea, and had the ability to destroy Barrel Zombie and Ice Block Zombie's armors in one hit.
She is the only normal attacking plant in the game to lack a VIP counterpart.

Fire Peashooter later reappeared in Plants vs. Zombies 2 as a Gem Premium plant tied to the Frostbite Caves world. Similar to her appearance in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, she is able to shoot flaming peas down her lane, which deal double the damage of a normal pea.
Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures however, she is no longer able to instantly destroy the armor of heavily armored zombies. Her fiery peas are also unable to be boosted by Torchwood's ignition ability, due to them already being on fire.
Fire Peashooter also now has the ability to thaw out frozen or chilled plants in a 3x3 area in Frostbite Caves. Fire Peashooter herself is also unable to be frozen by any means.

His primary weapon is the Fire Pea Cannon, which is similar to his normal variant's primary weapon, being able to deal an immense amount of both direct and splash damage, except it is able to light zombies on fire. Zombies lit on fire would slowly take damage over time until a certain amount of time had passed.

Fire Peashooter is a Potted Plant exclusive to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. Fire Peashooter works similarly to the Pea Cannon, automatically firing high-splash damage projectiles at the nearest target, but their peas will light zombies on fire, dealing chip damage until either killed or extinguished.
While not being plantable in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, a Fire Peashooter "appears" as a NPC in the Backyard Battleground. However, this Fire Peashooter is named "Fire Pea" instead and claims they are simply a normal Peashooter set on fire.

Fire Peashooter costs 2 and has 3/2 stats and no abilities nor traits. With her main appeal being her strong stats for a relatively cheap cost.
- Main article: Fire Peashooter (PvZ3)
She shoots flaming peas down her lane that hurts a zombie as well as dealing minor splash to any other zombie on the tile, similar to the interaction between Torchwood and a Peashooting plant in the original Plants vs. Zombies.
Her Plant Food effect is named Flamethrower and is similar to her Plants vs. Zombies 2 Plant Food, blowing a fire trail for 3 and a half seconds down her lane while her Tacobility effect is named Spreading Flames and increases her peas' splash damage to a 2x3 area permanently.
In Plants vs. Zombies 2: Revenge, Fire Peashooter not only appears in its normal form, but also in form of a Twopeater and a Threepeater. In Plants vs. Zombies 2: Garden, it is named "Fire-peater" and gains Intermediate and Advanced variant along with the "Flame Master" variant.
