Wall-nut is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. They're defensive plants that can't attack back (unless in Wall-nut Bowling and Wall-nut Bowling 2), but instead block off zombies with their huge amounts of health.
As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Wall-nut has appeared in every game in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise.
Wall-nut is based on the edible walnut seed, specifically the Juglans regia. The name is a portmanteau of "walnut" and "wall," befitting Wall-nut's ability to absorb attacks from zombies.

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as all Chinese spin-off games based on it, Wall-nut is the fourth plant unlocked, obtained after beating Level 1-3. They defend plants behind it from the zombies with their high health.

Wall-nut made a reappearance in PopCap's ill-fated Facebook game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, having the same abilities as its Plants vs. Zombies counterpart. Unlike most plants, it couldn't be revived if eaten by the zombies.

Wall-nut has appeared in the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare series in multiple occasions. However, his direct appearances are never called Wall-nut. There is a map named after him called Wall-nut Hills that appears in both games.
Nut based plants are included as Cactus' abilities in the Garden Warfare series. Both of these abilities are based on defending other plants such as Cactus from damage, with Tallnut Battlement being longer while Iron Maiden having more health.
In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, the Iron Maiden has a bling variant called the Bling Maiden which is simply a reskinned Iron Maiden.

Despite their name, Tallnuts resemble Wall-nuts closer. These nuts are fired out of Tallnut Cannons in the Wall-nut Hills map at the final objective. These Tallnuts instantly vanquish any unlucky person they touch, plant or zombie.
These type of nuts reappear in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville during the Balloon Buffoons quest at the Town Center and in the final objective of the Peachy District map. Once again, they are launched out of cannons, this time called Wall-nut Cannons, deal massive damage to zombies who are hit by them, and can be destroyed in advance. This game has them correctly called Wall-nuts.

Wall-nut next appears in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars as the first plant in the Nut line, evolving into Tall-nut and then into Holographic Tall-nut. He is melee attackers who ram themselves into the first enemy ahead of them, though he primarily is meant to protect plants behind him.
His abilities include Armored Assault, which removes negative effects from themselves and creates a protective shield for the team that lasts 5 turns, Meditation, which regenerates more health every turn, and Bodyguard, which protects an ally from fatal damage once.

Wall-Nut also appears in the turn-based mobile card game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes as a 1/6 Nut plant with Team-Up in the Guardian class. He is a very simple plant whose sole purpose is to be used to defend other plants.
Both Jugger-Nut, a 2 2/2 Nut in the Guardian class with the Armored 1 and Bullseye traits and Mixed Nuts, a 3 2/2 Nut in the Solar class who gain +2/+2 if played on a lane with a Team-Up, are based off Wall-Nut.

Wall-Nut's most recent appearance is in Plants vs. Zombies 3, where he reprises his role as a defensive plant, more specifically, a Wall. He is one of the three plants given at the start of the game, joined by Peashooter and Bonk Choy and as a main character. Similarly to Wall-Knight's depiction in Plants vs. Zombies 2 events, he isn't that bright but means well.
His Plant Food ability is Shell Shove, an ability that lets him push zombies back and stun them for a limited time while his Tacobility is Jugger-Nut, which works like his Plant Food ability did in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- He appears in the most Achievements icons in Plants vs. Zombies, appearing in 5 of them, 6 if one assumes the eyes in the Blind Faith achievement are from a Wall-nut.
