For other uses, see Split Pea (disambiguation).

Split Pea is a peashooting plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that is the combination of a forward-facing Peashooter and a backward-facing Repeater (without the dark green leaves), similar to conjoined twins. It is the first Wild West plant obtained in, being obtained after beating Wild West - Day 1. Split Peas are great for repelling zombies capable of doing surprise attacks from which they can bypass the plants from behind, as the back head deals twice the amount of damage of the front head.

Plant Food effect

Plant Food ability (animated)

When fed Plant Food, Split Pea shoots 60 peas forward and 90 peas plus one giant pea that deals 600 damage backward. It is essentially the same two Plant Food effects of Peashooter (forwards) and Repeater (backwards) combined, the two plants that it fuses.

Costumed (China only)

Plant Food ability can shoot 60 peas each head, then finally a giant fire pea (forward head) and big snow pea (backward head, 600 damage).

Appease-mint effect

When boosted by Appease-mint, Split Pea will receive an additional 175 DPS to both its forward and backward peas.

Strategies

The Split Pea is a counter against the Prospector Zombie in this game, although they can only be reliably used for that on levels with lower concentrations of them, due to lack of splash damage. However, Winter Melons, Snow Peas, Cold Snapdragons, and Iceberg Lettuce can cool down the Prospector Zombie's dynamite reliably and thus preventing it from causing any damage at all, while clusters of Phat Beets can be used to destroy large amounts of them, if placed in the second column. While the Split Pea might seem useless at this point, the Winter Melon may be too busy taking care of other zombies and its chilling effect may fail to reach the Prospector Zombie, or it may cost too much at the given moment, giving them a chance to slip past your defenses. This is where the Split Pea comes in handy, as it gives you a margin of error when you fail to chill all zombies with the Winter Melons. It can also be used against Zombie Bull Riders as well, but you are better off using a Tall-nut to block Zombie Bulls and Spikerocks in the third column along with a strong frontwards offense against Wild West Gargantuars. Split Peas can also be effective to the pterodactyl, but Perfume-shroom can be used otherwise. It can be useful against Jetpack Zombies, as they will simply fly over the Split Pea, allowing the back head to attack, though if there are too many, you can still use a Blover or a Hurrikale. Split Peas are also useful against Jester Zombies, as they cannot block projectiles from behind.

Split Pea can also be used in creative ways, using Sweet Potato or Hot Date, Garlic, and slider tiles to redirect zombies so that zombies will be hurt by the back head, which will deal twice the damage of the front head. Split Pea can also be used against Wizard Zombies, Shield Zombies, Hunter Zombies, Excavator Zombies and Octo Zombies as they cannot attack behind them and are thus vulnerable from behind.

Vasebreaker

Split Pea plays a major role in the Vasebreaker mini-games as it replaces the role of backwards-facing Repeaters. It appears in the levels: "To the Left" and "Vasebreaker Endless". In the intro level "To the Left", Split Peas are the only ranged shooting plants and therefore should be planted at the far right columns, which are specifically left empty to highlight the purpose of Split Peas.

In Vasebreaker Endless, however, five Split Peas are given for each level alongside some Repeaters, Threepeaters, Bonk Choys, Wall-nuts, and Potato Mines; therefore it is very important to plan an effective tactic before planting. One can be enough for clearing a lane of Basic Zombies and Conehead Zombies. Other plants should be used alongside with it to maximize its power and defeat Buckethead Zombies and Vase Gargantuars. While they should nearly always be planted at the far right side of the lawn to use its Repeater fire rate, it can also planted on the left and be used like a regular Peashooter in dire situations.

Trivia

  • In Plants vs. Zombies, the Peashooter's head is bigger than the Repeater's head. However, in Plants vs. Zombies 2, both heads are more or less the same size.
  • The Split pea's front head resembles the Peashooter, while the back head resembles the Repeater's face.
  • The two heads are now separate plants restricted to one body, instead of one head with a head-like growth.
  • In Wild West - Day 8, only eleven Split Peas are allowed on the lawn.
  • The player can use it in Vasebreaker Endless before Wild West - Day 1.
  • Its costume in the Chinese version is a reference to the movie Dumb and Dumber, where Lloyd wears an orange suit and top hat and Harry wears a blue suit and top hat to a gala.
  • Its first costume is a reference to the shoulder angel and devil, two stock characters that try to dictate a character's actions, the angel representing conscience and the devil representing temptation.
  • This is the only Pea Plant whose projectiles (only from the back head) cannot be blocked by Excavator Zombie or reflected by Jester Zombie.
  • Unlike in the first game, the Repeater head will attack a little bit after Peashooter's head when both of them are attacking.
