Mirror-Nut is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Guardian class. It costs 4 to play, and has 6. It has the Team-Up trait, and its ability does 2 damage to the zombie hero every time a nut plant is hurt, including it, unless one has been destroyed by an instant-kill card.
Its name is a portmanteau of the words "mirror," referring to its appearance and ability, and "Wall-Nut," the Plants vs. Zombies plant it is based on.

Due to this plant's high health, ability, and sun cost, this makes for a very formidable foe. If the player decides to use this, they should also bring along more nut cards like Pea-Nut or Smackadamia. This plant is like a simple Wall-Nut having 6, but it has a strong ability and cost 3 sun more. This should be used early in the game, or if enough nut cards are being played, later in the game. If you have 2 or more Mirror-Nuts, it is useful to play multiple nuts, as they can multiply the amount of damage to the zombie hero, because if there are 2 Mirror-Nuts on board, each nut that gets hurt will deal 4 damage to the zombie hero, although it fills up the block meter twice. Like Wall-Nut, this also has Team-Up so if you want to preserve its ability, you can play it behind a plant or if you need defense early, this can be in front of a plant.
Just be careful against the Hearty class since they have Rolling Stone and Weed Spray which can destroy many of your nuts. In this case, it is advised to bring Go-Nuts if you are playing as Citron or Beta-Carrotina. On the other hand, Mirror-Nut is very effective against Brainy and Crazy classes, especially Professor Brainstorm as these classes do not have cards that can effectively remove low-strength but high-health plants, namely nut plants, and therefore will struggle against Mirror-Nut's ability.
Using instant-kill tricks are the only sure fire way of confronting this plant without risking losing tons of health. Mirror-Nut will not damage the hero if instant-kill tricks are used. Weed Spray is very effective against this, as you'll kill most of the nuts and Mirror-Nut, too. Using Squirrel Herder can get rid of this, but beware of Grave Buster. Additionally, Bouncing this plant will prevent it from activating its ability. Deadly zombies can also handle this as they will instantly destroy Mirror-Nut.
Do not let this stay long, as Guardian heroes can place nuts everywhere to easily cause some serious damage. In addition, avoid using any damaging tricks to Mirror-Nut and other nuts as its ability can still be affected, unless it may be enough to destroy it. The Chickening is very dangerous to play as each nut gets hurt, the more damage the zombie hero will take, so avoid playing it. If you are playing Professor Brainstorm, you must find a way to quickly destroy the plant hero or destroy the Mirror-Nut as fast as possible, because there is almost no way to destroy the Mirror-Nut with Professor Brainstorm as Brainy and Crazy classes does not contain instant-kill cards that can destroy defensive plants.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Mirror-Nut.
- Previously, on the packs' icon (for example, the Wall-Knight Ally Pack), its armor appears to be made of shards of actual mirrors, rather than a disco ball like the in-game version.
- The shards are blue on the Wall-Knight's Ally Pack, while Mirror-Nut's in-game form is many different colors.
- It slightly resembles Wall-nut's costumed Plant Food effect in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
