Bonk Choys should be put behind Wall-nuts at all times. They should also be used with other offensive plants. That way, they can live longer without being eaten.

They are also good against Zombie Chickens, Pharaoh Zombies, Seagull Zombies, and Swashbuckler Zombies.

Bonk Choys can also punch behind, which helps it to kill Prospector Zombies and Barrel Roller Zombies.

When compared to the other melee plants in the Plants vs. Zombies series, the Bonk Choy seems to be among the better of them. Unlike Plants vs. Zombies's Chomper, it has a massively higher attack rate, but signifigantly lower damage. The Bonk Choy, also unlike the Chomper, can attack behind itself, allowing it to work as a valid way to deal with Prospector Zombies. The main advantage the Chomper has is its ability to instantly eat almost any zombie, allowing it to be much more effective against tougher zombies like Buckethead Zombies which would otherwise kill the Bonk Choy. Compared to Plants vs. Zombies Adventures's Beet, the Beet and Bonk Choy can be considered as a slight upgrade. The Bonk Choy has, again, a signifigantly higher attack rate and DPS compared to the Beet, making it better than the Beet for attacking tough zombies. However, Beets kill zombies in less hits, mostly because the health of all zombies is lower in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures over Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time.



  • The name "Bonk Choy" may be a portmanteau on "bok choy," a Chinese cabbage, and the onomatopoeia "bonk," the sound of something being punched or hit.
  • This is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time while fighting the zombies, the other five are Pea Pod, Bloomerang, Peashooter, Wall-nut and Sunflower.
  • It is similar to the Beet from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, as both plants hit zombies at close range.
    • The Beet can kill zombies much quicker however, and has an area of effect attack, making it more effective.
  • It does an uppercut as a "final blow".
  • Sometimes, if an ambush zombie comes close to Bonk Choy, he will keep uppercutting it until it dies.
  • Since a Zombie Chicken only needs one hit to die, Bonk Choy only does a normal punch and no uppercut.
  • Bonk Choy is the third cabbage added into the series, the others being Cabbage-pult and Iceberg Lettuce.
  • Bonk Choy is the only new plant with one tooth in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time.
  • It takes ten punches and an uppercut to kill a normal zombie and that allows Bonk Choy to kill the Zombie without a Tall-nut or Wall-nut.
  • When the player's finger is behind the Bonk Choy (e.g. when collecting sun), it will glance behind itself briefly.
  • According to the beta seed packets, Bonk Choy was originally going to cost 175 sun.
