The Tail line (尾草系; pinyin: wěi cǎo xì) is a Class S PvZAS Icon Brave.pngBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.

The line consists of Cattail (猫尾草; pinyin: māo wěi cǎo), Dogtail (狗尾草; pinyin: gǒu wěi cǎo), and Foxtail (狐尾草; pinyin: hú wěi cǎo). They all specialize in generating wrath and attack by firing spikes from their tails.



All members of the Tail line are based on various types of plants that are named after animals, more specifically their tails. Their appearances are based on the animal on which their base plants are named after.

The first tier, Cattail, is based on the plant from previous games with the same name and appearance.

The second tier, Dogtail, is based on the Setaria viridis a member of the Setaria genus of invasive grass plants, many of which are commonly named dogtail grass due to their fuzzy appearance.

The third tier, Foxtail, is based on a Alopecurus pratensis, also known as the Meadow foxtail, a perennial grass plant native to Europe and Asia.

Its method of attack involving numerous thin spikes is based on the diaspore that is also called the Foxtail, a seed dispersal unit which uses easily removable spikes to stick to animal fur.

Liontail (狮尾草; pinyin: shī wěi cǎo) was a plant in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars. It no longer exists in the game after being replaced with Foxtail.


Liontail was based on, or at least named after, the Leonotis leonurus, otherwise known as the Lion's tail, a broadleaf shrub native to southern Africa.
