Shiitakes No Prisoners

Night Cap is a Rare Piercing plant unlocked Plants vs. Zombies 3. She slowly fires piercing projectiles at zombies.


For more information about this character, see Night Cap.

Night Cap is a Shooter plant obtained by the player after beating Floor 21 of Devour Tower along with Fairy Ring Mushroom. Her seed packets are more likely to be dropped in Shallot Graveyard breakout levels.

She costs 7 Sun and attacks zombies by firing a shadow projectile that pierces through multiple zombies in a similar manner to Pine Needler. After firing a projectile, she then has to charge up her next attack, leaving her vulnerable to zombie attacks.

After lifetimes of superpowered Plant vs. Zombies Heroics and Battles for Neighborville, Night Cap has emerged from the shadows. Now this mystical mushroom is bringing the power of Fung-Fu back to the lawn that started it all.


Plant Food effect

Night Cap's Plant Food ability is named Fung-Fu, which allows Night Cap to deal a heavy amount of damage to a small number of random zombies on the lawn.


Night Cap's Tacobility is named Casting Shadows, which allows Night Cap's shadow projectiles to pierce more zombies as well as Stealthing adjacent plants, allowing them to not take damage from zombie attacks.
