The official name of this plant is Sumo Melon. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Sumo Melon (白瓜相扑手; pinyin: Báiguā xiàng pū shǒu) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 2.1.1 update. He can push zombies back, similar to Spring Bean and Chard Guard, with an unlimited amount of pushes and requires a cooldown after each push.

Origins

Sumo Melon's Plant Food effect now pushes all attracted zombies out of the lawn instead.

Strategies

Use this plant as you would Chard Guard. The only difference here is that you have to protect it or else it will get eaten quickly. If you are stuck on a Pirate Seas level, it would be useful to use Sumo Melon with Wall-nut and Spring Bean. Plant a Wall-nut in front of the Sumo Melon and a Spring Bean nearby. This way you can push back any Imp Pirate Zombie or Swashbuckler Zombie back to Spring Bean.

Trivia

  • He is the first plant in the series to be based on a sumo wrestler, with the first zombie (and entity overall) being Sumo Wrestler.
  • His almanac entry refers to him first as "he"(他), but then refers to him as "it"(它) later on. This may be a mistake.
  • The original name of the plant does not make any sense, as there is no such kind of melon resembling its shape known as "白瓜" (lit. white melon). The only type of plant bearing the name can be seen here. A muskmelon in Chinese is known as "白兰瓜".
    • Yet this is not the only case for a China-exclusive plant: another example is Lily of Alchemy (芦藜药师). The word 芦藜, along with its concept name 草寸香, are barely used. The plant is usually referred to as 铃兰 in Chinese instead.
