The official name of this plant is R.A.D Missiles. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

R.A.D Missiles (捣蛋萝卜; pinyin: dǎodàn luóbo) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He was released on October 1, 2015 to celebrate National Day in China. He attacks by launching missiles that bounce off zombies, similarly to A.K.E.E. Each of these missiles deal a different amount of damage. However, after launching three missiles, he needs to recharge for six seconds before being able to attack again. As of October 8, 2015, he became unobtainable. He stayed this way until the 1.8 update.

Origins

Radish PNG31
R.A.D Missiles is based on Daikon, a mild-flavored winter radish usually characterized by fast-growing leaves and a long white napiform root, it contains lots of sugar, so the Almanac entry states that kids think his belly is filled with candies, which can also translate to sugar (sweet). His translated Chinese name, "Mischief Radish," is a pun on "missile radish," since "mischief" (捣蛋) and "missile" (导弹) are homophones in Chinese. Both words are written as "dǎodàn" in pinyin, which means that the two words sound the same but are different in writing. His official English name is a pun on the RAAD missile and "Radish".

Besides, R.A.D Missiles's Chinese name, along with its Almanac Entry, could also be a reference to “不给糖果就捣蛋”, the counterpart of "Trick or Treat", as Mischief stands for Trick.

植物特征:绿色植物、武器家族
捣蛋萝卜曾经拥有过成为一个瘦子的梦想,不过当他发现他巨大的肚子里可以塞入各种各样武器的时候,他就彻底放弃了之前那个不切实际的想法。孩子们也非常喜欢和捣蛋萝卜一起玩耍,因为他们总是以为捣蛋萝卜的肚子里装满了糖果。“有时候我不得不躲在泥土之中”,捣蛋萝卜无奈地说道,“我真的害怕我会伤害到接近我的孩子们。”

    In English:

    R.A.D Missiles fires three different type of missiles and each does different damage.

    Plant feature: green plant, armed family

    R.A.D Missiles once had a dream of becoming a thin person, but when he found out that his large stomach can hold all sorts of weapons, he completely abandoned the unrealistic dream. Children also like to play with him, because they always thought his belly is full of candies. "Sometimes I have to hide in the soil," R.A.D Missiles reluctantly said, "I'm really afraid that I would hurt the children near me."

Trivia

  • This is the only plant in the series that has a sun cost of 425.
  • He is the second plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 to be a radish, the first being Radish.
  • Despite being a radish, the codename for him is "greenturnip."
  • As with Cherry Bomb's small cherry, Banana Launcher, Dandelion in China, and Rafflesia, he uses Potato Mine's explosion effect, even using the English "SPUDOW!!" without translation. It is likely an oversight that said text is not translated.
  • He is the third lobbed-shot plant not to have a characteristic catapult shape, the first being A.K.E.E. and second being Spore-shroom.
