Starfruit2009HD.png

Starfruit is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Starfruit shoots star projectiles in five different directions, including above, below, and behind himself.

Starfruit in games is portrayed as rather egotistical, most especially in Plants vs. Zombies 3 where he perceives himself to be the most widely admired plant amongst his peers, with a "destiny" for "stardom". He is also said to be rather lazy, with his Plants vs. Zombies 2 entry stating that he enjoys numerous alternate forms of transportation and Angel Starfruit claiming that he too lazy to even rotate his body to improve his attack range.

As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Starfruit has appeared in four games.

Origins

ImagesCAVZ0AWF.jpg

Starfruit is based on the real life fruit of the same name, which belongs to the plant Averrhoa carambola, a species of woody plant in the family Oxalidaceae.

The star in his name refers to the fact that he is star shaped and shoots stars in five directions, and the fruit in his name refers to the fact that he is a fruit.

History

Plants vs. Zombies

Main article: Starfruit (PvZ)

Starfruit1.png

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, a Chinese spin-off, Starfruit is unlocked after beating Level 4-6.

He attacks by firing stars in 5 directions slowly, one up, one down, one to the upper right, one to the lower right and one behind him. The stars he fires deal as much damage as a pea but are unable to be lit by Torchwood.

He normally costs 125 sun but costs 175 with a much slower recharge in Versus Mode. There is a mini-game based on him, Seeing Stars, which involves putting Starfruits in a star shape on a lawn.

Oddly enough, in Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition and Plants vs. Zombies Social Edition, Starfruit was replaced by a plant named Future Star who functioned identically to Starfruit with the only noticeable difference being the color of both the projectiles and the plant itself.

Future Star advertised a milk brand in China also named "Future Star", this is a weird case in Social Edition as other advertisement plants in the game are their own separate planta who didn't replace what they were based off of.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Main article: Starfruit (PvZ2)

Starfruit2.png

In Plants vs. Zombies 2, Starfruit is a seed packet premium plant, costing 200 seed packets. In this game, he costs 150 sun rather than 125 but fires faster compared to his appearance in Plants vs. Zombies. Otherwise, Starfruit functions identically to how he did in the first game.

Starfruit is also a member of Appease-mint's mint family, who lets his stars deal an additional 175 DPS while he is on the field while his Plant Food effect has him shoot ten giant stars in his five directions, dealing 80 DPS per star.

Angel Starfruit2.png

The Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 features a plant named Angel Starfruit, who is based off Starfruit. Angel Starfruit is a legendary rarity event plant who was introduced for 2016 Children's Day event.

She costs 75 more sun than Starfruit (225 total) and similarly fires in five different directions at once. But unlike Starfruit, Angel Starfruit is able to rotate her entire body 72°, essentially flipping the directions she fires in horizontally.
