Hard-nut was the VIP version of the Wall-nut in the game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. The player got him after completing Dire Spires level 5.


His name is a portmanteau of "hard hat" and "walnut."

Hard-nut's rough exterior belies his soft, squishy insides. "I don't whistle at the Sunflowers, like some other plants," he says gruffly, scratching his belly against a nearby post. "It's disrespectful and objectifying. Also I can't whistle."



  • His design was simply a Wall-nut in a builder suit.
  • Despite his description saying it is stronger because he has a "hard, crunchy" shell rather than the Wall-nut's "chewy" one, their shells had the same health. His health was higher because of his hard hat, giving him two additional degrades.
    • This also made him the first plant in the whole series with headwear that protected the plant.
  • He could resist a smash from a Weightlifter Zombie. It would trigger the first degrade, but the next bite of any zombie will make him trigger his final degrade. This may have been a glitch. Only a Gargantuar Zombie could instantly kill him.
  • When zombies ate him, they also ate the builders suit with him.
  • When the player won a level with a damaged Hard-nut, he would look undamaged at the end of the level. The same goes for Wall-nut and other knocked out plants.
