|Bonk Choy can attack zombies behind it. (It can only attack zombies in front without this upgrade.)|
|Bonk Choy has 100% more health.|
| Bonk Choy may deal triple damage to zombies.
Compared to other offensive plants unlocked in Player's House and Ancient Egypt, Bonk Choy trades effective range for greatly increased damage output, being capable of dealing more than three times as much damage as a regular Peashooter. Its ability to punch backwards means that Bonk Choy can be used to attack stray zombies that get past defenses, as well as to catch Prospector Zombies and any zombies dropped by Pterodactyls in Jurassic Marsh. On the other hand, Bonk Choy's limited range means that it is greatly vulnerable to the horde. Particularly enemies that can instantly kill or neutralize plants from afar. Bonk Choy will also be generally outclassed by Snapdragon and by the extension of Cold Snapdragon later on, which deal the same amount of damage, have greater range and the ability to hit multiple targets, and if Cold Snapdragon, slow targets also.
Bonk Choy should ideally be placed behind defensive plants or Infi-nut's force field to protect it from being attacked by zombies. Chard Guard is a notable exception however, as it will push zombies out of Bonk Choy's limited effective range, protecting them from harm.
Avoid using Bonk Choy against Explorer Zombie, Torchlight Zombie, Excavator Zombie, and MC Zom-B as they can will kill or allow it to be vulnerable to other zombies before it can even have the chance to attack.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Bonk Choy.
