Not to be confused with Wax Gourd.

Wax Guard (冬瓜守卫; pinyin: dōngguā shǒuwèi) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is a defensive plant who, when planted, briefly stuns zombies on the tile in front of him and activates the Floor-de-Lis tile he is planted on.


Wax Guard is an Uncommon plant unlocked in Renaissance Age. He is a defensive plant that, when planted, jumps in-place to bounce zombies in the air, briefly stunning them.

His jumping can also activate Floor-de-Lis tiles when he is planted on them, allowing the player to move all Vitruvian Wheels to their advantage.



He is based on the wax gourd (Benincasa hispida), a fruit native to South and Southeast Asia named for it's waxy coating that is obtained as the fruit matures and ripens.

He is additionally based on the plant of a similar name from the now defunct Chinese exclusive tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies Online.

His name is a pun on "Wax gourd", the fruit he is based on, and "guard", referencing his defensive abilities.
