The Shy Fungi You Can’t Get By!

Shuffle Truffle is a Rare Trap Lane Changer Knockback Area Effect plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. She costs 1 sun and bounces nearby zombies back one tile in a nearby lane, then recharges.



Shuffle Truffle is based on the truffle, the fruiting body of several subterranean fungi.

Her name comes from how she "shuffles" zombies by moving them to random lanes, as "shuffle" rhymes with "truffle." Her name may also be a reference to the "Truffle Shuffle" meme which originates from the 1985 film, "The Goonies"

"I value personal space," Shuffle Truffle says in the latest episode of the "Not So Close Podcast." "I think it stems from sprouting up with so many truffle pigs in my face. Oh, um, could you please move the microphone back? Thanks!"


Shuffle Truffle can be played almost exactly like Spring Bean from Plants vs. Zombies 2. However, it has two differences from Spring Bean: one, being that the bounced zombie will also be in another lane. This can be considered a downside in most strategies, but works well with Starfruit and Gloom-Shroom as it allows the two to use their abilities without risk of being eaten. Another difference is that she is able to bounce groups like Chard Guard.

Another use for Shuffle Truffle can be a quick way to take a zombie out of an empty or unprepared lane, as the zombie will also be one tile further than if they took a bite out of Garlic. Simply, Garlic is more effective for a group of zombies while Shuffle Truffle works better with a singular zombie.



  • Shuffle Truffle doesn't bounce zombies into different lanes when they are buttered. It is unknown if this is intentional or a bug.
