Bloomerang is the second plant obtained in Ancient Egypt in Plants vs. Zombies 2 and is also present in Plants vs. Zombies Online. It fires boomerangs that can hit up to three targets and hit them a second time on the boomerang's return. It is the first new plant that is introduced in the second game.

Origins

Bloomerang's name is a portmanteau of "bloom," one or more flowers of a flowering plant and "boomerang," a hunting tool used by indigenous Australians.

Strategies

Bloomerang will be the first plant available to the player that can hit multiple targets. It is an effective tool to fight Camel Zombies and clean up multiple tombstones in early levels. Unfortunately, it becomes obsolete very quickly, as Laser Bean, Fume-shroom, A.K.E.E. and Cactus, all of which, due to the ability to hit more than three targets, deal greater damage and/or attack even more quickly and are better suited for the jobs Bloomerang is designed for.

Bloomerang can be used to fight Zombie Chickens and Ice Weasels, as it can hit up to three targets at once and will have slightly less trouble than other projectile plants. Bloomerang is more effective when planted near front lines as it takes less time for the boomerang to comeback. Its boomerangs can bypass Shield Zombie's shield, so Bloomerang can prove to be, to some extent, effective in the Far Future. This same advantage allows it to fight both the Excavator Zombies and Parasol Zombies of the Lost City, although not as effectively as other multiple target plants.

Trivia

  • If the player looks closely, they will see that it has nine boomerangs. It retains all nine even after throwing one, using Plant Food, or catching a returning boomerang which is odd due to the fact that when given plant food it shoots ten boomerangs.
  • When Bloomerang attacks tombstones in Ancient Egypt, the tombstones glow a red color.
  • Bloomerang is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2 while fighting the zombies, the other five are Bonk Choy, Pea Pod, Peashooter, Wall-nut, and Sunflower.
  • There are many references to Australia and Jamaica.
    • The projectile is based on the Boomerang, a weapon made in ancient Australia.
    • Its friend is a Koala Bear, an animal who lives in Australia.
    • The Almanac entry contains the phrase "out back." Outback is another term for the remote areas of Australia.
    • In Bloomerang's Almanac entry, Bob Barley is a portmanteau of "barley" and Bob Marley, who was a Jamaican songwriter.
    • The boomerangs on its head resemble, and have characteristics of dreadlocks, a Jamaican type of hairstyle.
    • Its costume is the headpiece that Rastafarians commonly wear in Jamaica.
  • Jester Zombie can deflect its boomerang, but instead of taking damage from the boomerang, Bloomerang will grab it, nullifying the damage.
  • If a Bloomerang throws a boomerang, and the player digs it up, the boomerang with travel back off the screen and hit any zombies it passes. It cannot be deflected by Jester Zombies if this happens.
  • In a previous version of the Chinese version, Bloomerang did not catch its boomerangs, allowing it to hit zombies behind it.
  • In the Chinese version, Bloomerang is the second plant that can have a sun cost not being a multiple of 25. However, this works if the player plants a second one which is level 2 or up on the lawn.
  • Nightshade resembles this plant in terms of appearance.
