For this mini-game in the original Plants vs. Zombies, see Vasebreaker.

Vasebreaker in the Trailer

Vasebreaker is the first (and so far the only) mini-game in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was added in the 2.7.1 update, and six new Vasebreaker levels were added in the 3.4.4 update. Vasebreaker involves breaking open vases to reveal its hidden contents that can be helpful or harmful to the player. The object remains the same: to build a defense to defeat the zombies, albeit carefully as the vases are randomized. The focus of this puzzle is to utilize the player's ability to think critically to formulate a strategy based on the various types of plants given, versus the stage's different types of zombies. Vasebreaker gives more zombies than plants generally, so randomly breaking open too many vases will only increase the likelihood of the player's being overwhelmed or defend each of the five lanes if they lack the resources.

Each vase will have either a zombie, a seed packet containing a plant, Plant Food, or 50 sun (Endless levels only) in it. The green vases with a leaf printed on them will always contain plants, which are great at the beginning of levels to plan the player's defense. In contrast, there are also purple vases with a zombie face printed on them, which will always contain a Gargantuar. Three new Power Ups exclusively for Vasebreaker can be discovered here.

To unlock the Vasebreaker Mini-game, the player must finish Ancient Egypt - Day 1. Plant Food can also be first used in Vasebreaker instead of Ancient Egypt - Day 2. Cherry Bomb can also be used in Endless levels.


Currently, there are a total of thirteen levels divided into five groups: Vasebreaker Intro, Egyptian Challenge, Pirate Challenge, Western Challenge, and Vasebreaker Endless. As of version 3.4.4, Pirate Challenge and Western Challenge became available.

Plants vs

Plants vs. Zombies 2 Vasebreaker Coming Soon

Official trailer


  • The vases appear to be have cracks, unlike the previous game.
  • When Crazy Dave and Penny introduce the player to Vasebreaker, Crazy Dave references an unused Vasebreaker level from the first game, called Vasebreaker Facebreaker.
  • As stated by PopCap Games, this will never be officially included as a Brain Buster. Instead, it will be a mini-game which is currently the only one in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
    • However, the Chinese version of the game has it as a Brain Buster in Big Wave Beach and normal level in Lost City.
  • Unlike the original Plants vs. Zombies, this version of Vasebreaker has three types of vases, introducing one new vase where in it will always contain a GargantuarPlants vs. Zombies also had an image file for a zombie vase, but it was scrapped.
  • Unlike in the first game, Gargantuars do not smash vases here. Instead, they ignore them altogether.
  • The Gargantuar in this level is the Vase Gargantuar, not the regular one. So far the Vase Gargantuar is the only new zombie introduced in Vasebreaker. However, the Vase Gargantuar does not do anything different from a normal Gargantuar, apart from having a slower speed and slight difference in appearance.
  • Vase Gargantuars are never spawned from any vase besides Gargantuar vase, which making it easier to plan defense.
  • Most Vasebreaker level names (except for the Endless Zone) give a hint on how to complete the level or what the level is about.
  • Some of the levels are inspired by the original levels in the Plants vs. Zombies. To the Left is almost identical to the first To the Left, Boss Vase is similar to Ace of Vase, and Block and Spike is inspired by Hokey Pokey.
  • Unlike the first game, the player does not use a mallet to break the vases. Instead, they are tap-activated.
  • Music during Vasebreaker in Plants vs. Zombies 2 is Grasswalk in Intro and a remix of Cerebrawl in Egyptian Challenge Pack.
  • Imp Dragon Zombie and E.M.Peach both appeared in ads for Vasebreaker, but they have yet to appear in the Vasebreaker mini-game itself.
  • In the 3.4.4 update, all the players who have played the Vasebreaker levels would lose their progress, but previously unlocked Power Ups can still be used and progress for Vasebreaker Endless is saved (although it had to be unlocked again). This also happened in the 6.0.1 update for some users.
  • When completing Vasebreaker levels for the first time, money bags given contains 200 coins. This feature was added in the 3.4.4 update.
  • Unlike the original game's Vasebreaker, the player must beat all levels in this mode in order.
  • In the 3.5.1 update, the Vasebreaker button (as seen from the world selection) was now added in the Zen Garden.
  • In all levels, the player's plants will be at level one regardless of amount of experience points and levels obtained from the Plant Upgrade System, this is obviously a glitch.
    • However in Vasebreaker Endless, Cherry Bomb is the only leveled up plant to be used.
      • If there are any preplanted plants they will be leveled up.
        • Because the plants are level one their damage won’t be as strong, they won’t have increased health, their projectiles won’t go as fast.
