Not to be confused with the Heroes from Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.

Hero Plants were a game mechanic and variation of plants that are only seen in Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West. They had different abilities, and they can be moved by the player at any time. Each Hero Plant also had a special skill than could be used once charged, similar to the anger and Plant Food system in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars. However, the player could only use one Hero Plant in each level. When the Hero Plant was eaten, it can no longer be planted again until the level ended.
