Bamboo Brother (竹小弟; pinyin: zhú xiǎo di) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It pushes zombies back for a short distance when he meets a zombie for the first time. Then it will block the zombies until there are no zombies in front of it. It can heal itself, so it can stand a zombie for a long time.
Bamboo Brother is based on the phyllostachys aurea, known as fishpole bamboo or golden bamboo. It is native to Fujian and Zhejiang in China. Its costume is a reference to the headband of Sun Wukong, who is also known as the Monkey King.

Bamboo Brother defends and holds zombies back.
Special: If there are fewer zombies, it ables longer to adhere to the time.
Plant Food effect
When fed with Plant Food, Bamboo Brother heals itself to full health, then jumps into the air and spins around, knocking back the closest zombies to it.
When it spins in the air, it takes the closest zombie with itself, damaging them.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Bamboo Brother.
- It is the second defensive plant that pushes zombies back, with the first being Chard Guard. Because of this, it can instantly defeat Imps and Swashbuckler Zombies on plankless lanes if planted on the rightmost tile.
- It is the first plant to have a special death animation (excluding level 2 and 3 Tall-nut); it will break in half when it dies.
- Its internal name is "sugarcane," even though, visually, it is not one. Coincidentally, it looks somewhat similar to the unused Sugarcane in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.
