Spinnapple (旋转菠萝; pinyin: xuánzhuǎn bōluó) is the seventh and final plant of Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is the flying equivalent of Wall-nut, and is also capable of reflecting Zombie Fighter's projectiles.
Spinnapple is based on the fruit of the pineapple (Ananas comosus), a tropical plant with edible multiple fruit.
His name comes from "spin", reffering to his spinning leaves and "pineapple", the plant he's based on.
Sun cost: 75
Spinnapple can stop zombies from advancing, and can deflect bullets via self-rotation.
Special: His spin can bounce bullets.
Plant feature: yellow plant, tornado family, flying plantIn order to realize the dream of flying into the sky, Spinnapple found inspiration from the cartoons he saw in his childhood: He transformed the leaves on his head into a copter hoping that he could fly freely in the sky. As we have seen, such a whimsical idea actually worked! But the side effect is obvious: He had to follow the rotation at regular intervals in order to offset part of the leaves' pressure.
Plant Food effect
When fed with Plant Food, Spinnapple spins and collects all the bullets from zombies in 3x1 area. Then, he flings them back at enemies.
The reflecting is spread out and hits random zombies.
This plant is very useful in Sky City because of his ability to fly and reflect bullets. You should use him the same way as using Wall-nut, but plant him in the sky instead. You can also use him to block Zombie Fighter's bullets to save your other airborne plants. However, using him in other worlds is not reccomended, as Spinnapple has a slightly higher sun cost than Wall-nut and his Plant Food effect is completely useless when not used against Zombie Fighter except for Spinnapple healing, while Wall-nut's Plant Food doubles his health.
