Oil Olive (油橄榄; pinyin: yóu gǎnlǎn) is a plant obtained in Renaissance Age in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He creates a slippery, yet flammable oil slick in a small area when played.


Oil Olive is the sixth plant obtained in Renaissance Age, being unlocked after beating Day 14, and is the only instant use introduced in the world.

He is a single-instant-use plant. When played, he creates an oil slick in a 3x1 area ahead and behind him, which can be ignited by fire plants to deal an immense amount of damage to zombies who step in it (Imp Dragons are not affected). Ballerina Zombies can slip on this oil and be momentarily stunned. If not touched by a fire plant the oil slick disappears soon after.

Plants that can ignite Oil Olive's oil contain, but are not limited to:



Oil Olive is based on the olive, the fruit of the Olea europaea tree, and olive oil, a cooking oil obtained from the Olive fruit.

His name, Oil Olive, is a play on olive oil, flipping the two words to indicate that Oil Olive is an olive that is oily.

His ability to make Ballerinas Slip is based on how olive oil reduces friction between matter and the combustive properties of the oil slick is a reference to how flammable they can become when confronted by heat.

    Oil Olive originates from far within the Mediterranean and has come to this mysterious land to study culinary techniques. But he only just recently got the handle of a spoon: Pour a little oil in the pan, lift it twice, set the the pan ablaze, looks pretty cool.


Oil Olive can be used on Ballerina Zombie, which can make them fall down and stuns them temporarily. However, his oil trail will disappear for few seconds. Using them on Ballerina Zombie was super useful to make them stun and also can make a chance to defeat them in seconds.


Concepts (Scrapped concept)


  • For unknown reasons Oil Olive does not appear on the Renaissance Age world map.
  • Oil Olive was planned to make zombies that move unstably such as Jester Zombie and Punk Zombie slip. This was later scrapped due to time constraints.
