Zorrose (玫瑰剑客; pinyin: méiguī jiànkè) is a plant from Renaissance Age in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He rapidly attacks zombies with his thorn sword at a close range of 1.5 tiles. When the target's HP is higher than 30%, his stabs the target every 0.7 seconds on average (slower than Bonk Choy). When the target's HP is lower than 30%, his charges before attacking, which makes his attack every 1.4 seconds. However, the damage he 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. He was released in the Sky City update for iOS, along with Magic-shroom and Bambrook. However, recently he is available for the second daily sign in gift.

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


Rosa chinensis

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

His weapon, which is also known as its sword may resemble the thorn which could be found in the stem of a rose.

His Almanac entry hints that Zorrose's name is Van Gogh, which is a reference to the famous artist. He said "Versailles" is his first name and "Gogh" is his 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. The painting of Sunflower mentioned in the entry is also a reference to Van Gogh's Sunflower paintings.

Almanac entry

玫瑰剑客 (Zorrose)
Sun cost: 225

RANGE: Close
RECHARGE: Mediocre



    In English:

    Zorrose attacks approaching zombies and launches a strong attack when they are at low health.

    Special: Strong attacks on zombies with low hit points
    Plant feature: red plant, martial arts

    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, Zorrose stabs zombies in a 3x3 area.


After his normal Plant Food effect, he makes a "Z" symbol, which later explodes in a 3x3 area.

This plant is best used with a defensive plant to safely deal high damage to zombies.

However, he is pretty much a downgrade of Bonk Choy being the latter but slower, costlier and can not attack behind. It is not recommended to upgrade him as they are very weak and there are better options to upgrade,
