It costs 75 sun and can amplify the sun production of sun producer plants, with the sole exception of Moonflower, as well as producing sun on its own. When a zombie gets too close to it, it uses a stunning sun attack similar to Solar Tomato in a similar manner as Holly Barrier or Endurian. Shine Vine can usually keep immobilizing the zombie from advancing until its death, as its attack rate is similar to its stunning time.
It can also produce sun on its own; the sun production is the same as a Sunflower at Level 1. If a Magnifying Grass is planted in a Shine Vine, as the latter is about to produce a sun, Magnifying Grass will immediately attack, and the sun will not be produced.
The sun-producing plants whose sun production can be amplified by Shine Vine include Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Sun-shroom, Toadstool (after digestion), and Primal Sunflower. Though Moonflower is also a sun-producing Plant, it cannot be buffed by Shine Vine.
Shine Vine's showerhead-like attachment is based on a common sunflower (Helianthus annuus), coinciding with its sun-producing abilities.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.
SUN COST: 75
SUN PRODUCTION: Normal
Shine Vines are vine plants that amplify the sun production of sun producer plants, create some sun on their own, and use a sun-stun burst as a last second defense when attacked.
Usage: best used on sun producer plants
Special: doesn't amplify Moonflower sun production
"Peek-a-boo!" giggles Shine Vine, staring directly at you, the player. "Consider that fourth wall SHATTERED!"
