Laser Bea

Laser Bean is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Laser Bean fires lasers that can hit multiple targets at a time.

As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Laser Bean has appeared in seven games.



This plant's name is a portmanteau of "laser beam," a light emitted through a process of optical amplification and "bean," the type of plant that this plant is based on.

His red cape costume is a reference to Superman. Coincidentally, they can both shoot lasers out of their eyes. Laser Bean with his red cape can be found in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 as a boss plant named Super Bean.

Laser Bean first appears in Plants vs. Zombies 2 as the first plant obtained in the Far Future. He costs 200 Sun and attacks zombies using a slow firing laser beam that hits every zombie in his lane as long as they aren't protected by a Glitter Zombie. Due to only costing 25 more sun, Laser Bean can easily replace Bloomerang in any strategy.

In the Chinese-exclusive version of Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, Laser Bean was one of the 9 ported plants from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.

He was almost exactly the same as his Plants vs. Zombies 2 counterpart, with only two differences. The first was that he had a slower recharge time, and the second was that due to the lack of Plant Food, he would activate his Plant Food effect at random instead.

Garden Warfare series and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville

Laser Bean has appeared in two forms in the shooter games, as a Potted Plant and a Boss.

Laser Bean's first appearance in the shooter series was as a Potted Plant introduced in the Legends of the Lawn DLC in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare as the final Potted Plant to be added. He rapidly fires lasers at zombies, dealing 7-9 damage per hit.


Interestingly, despite being the last Potted Plant added, he was considered for the game before it even released, with a trailer having him in his beta design from before he was even added in Plants vs. Zombies 2.

While Laser Bean din't make a return as a Potted Plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, he got promoted to a boss in the form of Super Bean. Super Bean can fire lasers and has a force field surrounding him, preventing him from being damaged. He will usually try to stall the zombies out by warping and knocking them back if his shield is down to restore it.

His Super Wave in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has him accompanied by Mystic Flowers, Zen Cacti and Armor variants while his Super Wave in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville has him become invincible whenever he loses a quarter of his health, making the zombies hunt down Champion sidekicks to make him damagable again. The amount of sidekicks depends on how much health he has left.

Laser Bean next appears in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars where he is the second plant in the Energy Bean line, evolving from Energy Bean and evolving into Super Bean, who is somewhat similar from the boss in the shooter series.

Like Plants vs. Zombies 2, he fires a piercing beam that hits all the zombies in his lane.

The latest appearance of Laser Bean is in the turn-based mobile card game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes as a Premium Super-Rare plant in the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. He costs 6SunPvZH, has 5StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH and has the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait.

Despite his high cost and rarity, he is quite a simple card, simply being able to take a quarter of the Zombie Hero's health even if it's blocked. However, due to lacking an ability and having a high cost, he can be easily replaced with cards such as Elderberry and Astrocado.
