Lord Bamboo (竹员外; pinyin: zhú yuánwài) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He explodes the first zombie on contact, killing both himself and the zombie(s) in his area similar to Potato Mine. He is a plant introduced to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

To unlock this plant, the player could open red packets for Chinese New Year event 2015 and 2016, which were obtained from Gods of Wealth, or by spending diamonds. To get both him and his costume, the player would have to answer nine questions correctly in the quiz game mode. An alternative method was to get a Puzzle Piece for him via Penny's Treasures.

Origins

He resembles Chinese firecrackers (爆竹, which are actually explosive bamboo).

    Plant feature: green plant

    Lord Bamboo lives in a big house in the west of Fireworks Town lonely. He looks ill, but he is, in fact, a loving old man who likes children. He will bring firecrackers to the children in town on Spring Festival, expecting them to spend a happy new year. And what he wishes mostly is, his grandson, Bamboo Shoot, who went for learning skills faraway, could knock the door stepping the scraps of firecrackers...

Upgrades

Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, Lord Bamboo will release a "carpet" of firecrackers on his lane, which will detonate shortly, killing or damaging the zombies stepping on it.

Costumed

With his costume, after feeding with Plant Food, the zombies that are damaged by the carpet will be bounced, and they cannot move for a short time.

Strategies

Treat Lord Bamboo as how you normally treat Squash. However, Lord Bamboo has a weakness of being unable to attack zombies who stand on two tiles, with the bamboo at the front tile. When one is put into that situation, chances are he will explode without damaging the zombie or be eaten without having the zombie exploded also. He is also weak to Mecha-Football Zombie since they push plants, while being just outside Lord Bamboo's trigger area. Since the explosion is considered a fire damage, Lord Bamboo should also not be used on zombies that are frozen and will survive the attack or release their payload, such as Gargantuar, a leveled-up Knight Zombie or Chicken Wrangler Zombie.

However, he has a faster recharge than Squash, making him more useful against a leveled up zombies like Knight Zombies.
