雷龙草作为闪电家族的一部分,自称来自阿斯咖德,是家族里出了名的恶霸,嘴里老是嘟囔着 “I am dragon of thunder”。“人人都说我长得像火龙草,我可跟它什么关系都没有,我长得比那伙计长得好看多了!”它不屑的说道。

    As part of the Lightning Family, Zapdragon claims to be from Asgard. It is a famous bully in the family. It always mutters "I am The Dragon of Thunder". "Everyone says that I look like Snapdragon. I don't have anything to do with it. I look way better than that guy!" it said with disdain.

This plant can be very powerful, if used right. It has high DPS for low sun cost, and can be used to deal with early zombie waves. Small range should be helped with high-health plants, such as Wall-nut, Wax Guard, or long-range Chest-nut. This plant is vulnerable to surpise attacks such as "Bot Swarm!" and "Parachute Rain!" as his slow firerate is easily countered in head-to-head fight. E.M.Peach and Iceberg Lettuce's plant food ability are recommended in such cases.

At level 2 and higher this plant can be used to briefly paralyze zombots, and a big group of them can effectively lock Zombots out from doing anything. Player is recommended to bring high-DPS plants to fasten the fight.

  • Its stem resembles Snapdragon's, but in a green-blue color.
  • Zapdragon's almanac description likely references Thor, the Norse god of thunder and lightning, in several ways including Zapdragon claiming to be from Asgard (home of the Norse gods) and that he's "The Dragon of Thunder"
