She uses her tanning reflector as armor, giving her additional health as well as reducing damage taken from plant attacks. She also uses her reflector to steal sun from the player every 7 seconds. When her reflector is destroyed, any sun she has stolen from the player will be given back all at once.
She is more likely to be encountered in BBQ Beach breakout battles.
Her ability of stealing sun is inspired by other sun-stealing zombies in Plants vs. Zombies 2 such as Ra Zombie and Turquoise Skull Zombie from the Ancient Egypt and Lost City worlds respectively, with her taking more influence from Ra Zombie.
Her ability to steal sun is a reference on how sun screens reflect sunlight.
