Narcissus (水仙花 (水仙花射手 in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2); pinyin: shuǐxiān huā) is a plant in both the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 and in Plants vs. Zombies Online. She attacks by spitting bubbles at zombies.
Narcissus is based on the plants in the genus Amaryllidaceae, such as the daffodil, daffadowndilly, jonquil and the like. Their flowers have six-petal like tepals surmounted by a cup or trumpet-shaped corona. Her name is also based on a Greek god.
In the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, Narcissus is a Super-Rare Monthly special plant who spits bubbles that can penetrate zombies in five tiles ahead to her, similar to Fume-shroom. Narcissus' attack also has a chance to spawn a large bubble that removes the frontmost zombie's headwear, lowering its toughness. Narcissus also can be planted on flooded tiles in Big Wave Beach to increase her damage.
In Plants vs. Zombies Online, Narcissus was a Pirate Seas unlockable plant who could spit bubbles at zombies. She was identical to Peashooter, with the exception that her bubbles could extinguish the torches of Explorer Zombie and Torch Juggler Zombie, similar to Snow Pea.
