Gives itself armor that will absorb a certain amount of damage from enemies.
Tall-nut shares the role with Wall-nut as a buffer layer between other offensive plants and the incoming horde. Compared to Wall-nut, Tall-nut will have more trouble getting deployed in the early game due to increased cost but makes up for it with superior performance in the following level thanks to the significantly increased durability. Tall-nut's usefulness is also due to the plant's unique ability to block flying zombies and prevent them from creating chaos in the player's defense line.
Tall-nut can significantly boost the effectiveness of plants with limited attack range such as Spikeweed and Bonk Choy by holding the zombies in place for them to attack. Being a defensive plant, Tall-nut can also be instantly replaced with Wall-nut First Aid as long as there is visual degradation. Imitater can remedy Tall-nut's long recharge time issue - even then, however, Tall-nut should never be completely relied on in Endless Zones, as the massive amount of zombies can quickly overwhelm the plant.
While the sequel has slightly buffed Tall-nut's health, the situation itself has become worse for the plant for a variety of reasons: The greatly increased amount of enemies that can instantly destroy plants has reduced the viability of defensive plants, while Blover's ability being generally improved means that flying enemies will be much less of a threat to the player in general. Additionally, Tall-nut faces direct competition in utility with Infi-nut, whose Plant Food force field can also block flying zombies as well as countering various other zombies' abilities.

- In the 1.1.3 version of the Chinese version, if one obtained his costume, he will appear to have already gained armor.
- One of his costumes surprisingly resembles Monkey D. Luffy's straw hat and red striped tank top.
