Rose Swordsman (玫瑰剑客; pinyin: méiguī jiànkè) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It rapidly attacks zombies with its thorn sword at a close range of 1.5 tiles. When the target's HP is higher than 30%, it stabs the target every 0.7 seconds on average (slower than Bonk Choy). When the target's HP is lower than 30%, it charges before attacking, which makes it attack every 1.4 seconds. However, the damage it deals will be three times as high as before.

Puzzle Pieces for this plant can be collected through daily sign-in reward for Android users in July. It was released in the Sky City update for iOS, along with Magic Mushroom and Bamboo Brother.

Rose Swordsman in Plants vs. Zombies Online is only used in Adventure Mode. The only way to obtain it is by collecting 240 puzzle pieces.


Rose Swordsman is based on Rosa chinensis found in Southwest China. However, its attack pattern, costumed Plant Food effect and costume are references to Zorro, a Mexican legend.

This mysterious swordsman from the far east said that it was Versailles Gogh. When he drinks in the bar, he always boasts that he is an artist beyond the era. "These rude guys can never understand what I wanted to express!" He always says that angrily. "You know that Sunflower, the famous singer. I once drew a picture beyond the era for her, but she unexpectedly declared that what I had drawn was junk! That was my only picture which was not about roses! I also signed the initial of my name specially. I bet that just my signature is enough to make the picture a priceless one......Burrrrrp!"


Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, Rose Swordsman stabs zombies in a 3x3 range.


After its normal Plant Food effect, it makes a "Z" symbol, which later explodes in a 3x3 range.

  • Rose Swordsman, Flame Mushroom, Pretty Little Plum, Jack O' Lantern, Angel Starfruit, and Match Flower Boxer are the only plants with a sun cost of 225.
  • When fed with Plant Food, a cloak appears on its back.
  • The Almanac hints that Rose Swordsman is Van Gogh, the artist. It said "Versailles" is its first name and "Gogh" is its last name. When the first and the last words of this name in Chinese are put together, a name pronounced the same as Van Gogh in Chinese (凡高 to 梵高) can be produced.
  • Rose Swordsman and Ghost Pepper are the only two plants to have their costume on their respective upgrade icons.
  • In the 1.6.0 update, Rose Swordsman, along with Magic Mushroom, gained their own unique sounds.
  • The petal effect it uses is similar to Petal-Morphosis.
