Magnifying Grass is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Magnifying Grass attacks zombies by firing projectiles powered by sun, benefiting from the player have lots of sun.

As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Magnifying Grass has appeared in three games.



She is based on Poaceae, the large and nearly ubiquitous family of flowering plants known as grasses. Her name is a portmanteau of "magnifying glass," a convex lens used to produce a magnified image of an object, and "grass," the type of plant this is based on.

Magnifying Grass first appears in Plants vs. Zombies 2, unlocked after beating Day 17 of Far Future. While she only costs 50 sun to plant, her ability also cost 50 sun to activate. Once tapped, she will use 50 of the player's sun and fire a rainbow bolt, dealing 550 DPS. This sun cost can be avoided by planting a Shine Vine on top, but she will fire it whenever Shine Vine is going to make sun, meaning this free shot can be completely wasted.

She is a member of the Fila-mint family, who simply raises her DPS by 800 when he is on the lawn while her Plant Food effect has her fire a rainbow beam that burns zombies in its wake one at a time. While this beam's base DPS is weaker than a normal attack, it costs no sun and will last longer the more sun producing plants (other than Sun Bean or Toadstool) are on the lawn, at first lasting 3.5 seconds.

She has an achievement based on her, Grass Effect, which requires 500 sun to be fired out of Magnifying Grasses during a level.

Magnifying Grass' next appearance was in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars as the second plant in the Electric Grass line, who evolved from Lightning Reed and evolved into Thunder God Grass. Her line specialized in stunning large groups of enemies and unlike her mainline appearance, she attacked using lightning.

Her active ability was Discharge! which dealt damage to the closest enemy and any enemy in a plus shape around the initial target while her passive ability was Electroshock, which gave Discharge! a 20% chance to paralyze hit enemies, which made the enemy unable to act for 2 turns.

Her soulmates were members of the Watermelon line for a boost to his critical hit chance or members of either the Flytrap line or members of the Charm line and Dragon lines together for a damage boost.

Magnifying Grass' latest appearance is in the turn-based mobile card game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes as a Premium Rare in the PvZH Solar Icon.pngSolar class. She costs 3SunPvZH.png and initially has 1HeartPvZH.png.

Her ability sets her attack to how much sun the plant hero has that turn, meaning on the first turn she can be played, she will always have 3StrengthPvZH.png. However, as a side effect of this ability, if a Seedling transforms into her, she will have no strength at all, since Seedling transforms inbetween turns where no sun has been given.
