The official name of this plant is Saucer Squash. 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.

Saucer Squash (飞碟瓜; pinyin: fēidié guā) is the fifth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Similar to Stunion, it stuns zombies for around 10 seconds and then flies away. If the Saucer Squash is level 2, it can capture low health zombies while it captures higher health zombies if it is level 3.

Origins

NormalPumpkins.jpg

Saucer Squash appears to be based on a Cucurbita pepo, better known as pumpkin.

Its body is based on a flying saucers, also known as flying disc, which is a term for a supposed type of described flying craft with a disc or saucer-shaped body, commonly used generically to refer to any anomalous flying object. Its eyes resemble an alien's eyes in general descriptions.

飞碟瓜能发出光线捕捉接近的僵尸

大家总是误把飞碟瓜当做外星生物,但是大家慢慢发现,它只不过是因为过于内向而不敢融入大家。不过,千万不要惹飞碟瓜生气,被它的光照到可不是一件轻松的事情。

    In English:

    Saucer Squash emits light to capture zombies close to it.

    Plant feature: yellow plant, flying plant, alien

    Everyone always mistakes Saucer Squash as an alien, but they slowly discover that it just doesn't integrate with them because it's too shy. However, don't make it angry, being shone on by its light is not an easy thing.

Strategies

Just like Stunion, Saucer Squash is a good plant to stall zombies. Because Stunion is not an airborne plant, the player should use Saucer Squash if the player is playing Sky City or Big Wave Beach, as they have the same sun cost. In other areas however, Stunion should be used due to its recharging speed.

However, a level 2 or 3 Saucer Squash with the capture ability usually means it is more worthwhile to bring it along over Stunion.

Saucer Squash should also be used if the player is going to engage mechanical zombies like Disco-tron 3000 and Mecha-Football Zombies, as unlike Stunion, Saucer Squash can stun them.

Trivia

  • In its Puzzle Piece as well as the seed packet, it seems to be frowning for unknown reasons. It is also frowning when it is about to capture a zombie.
    • However, it is still smiling in the costumed Puzzle Piece.
  • If it freezes while stunning in Frostbite Caves, it will appear above the ice block. However, it will still be frozen.
  • If hit by bullets while stunning zombies, it can die, which instantly ends the stunning progress earlier.
  • If the player digs it up just as the stunning effect ends, the player will get a small amount of sun back from the shovel power-up.
    • It also works in the middle of the stunning. The stunning effect will however persist, ending only at the normal duration of around 10 seconds.
