Missile Toe is a premium plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2, tied to the 2016 Feastivus event. It acts like a Banana Launcher but it can slow down zombies in a 3x3 radius as an added effect. It is also immune to the chilling effect in Frostbite Caves but can't warm up other plants, similar to Cold Snapdragon. In other words, Missile Toe will be disabled for 22 seconds before it can be fired again.
Its name is a portmanteau of the words "missile," a self-propelled self-guided munition system and "mistletoe," the common name for most obligate hemiparasitic plants in the order Santalales.
Sun cost: 500
Missile Toes launch cold blasts that damage, chill and slow zombies.

Plant Food effect
When given Plant Food, it will launch three cold blasts at random targets on the lawn.
The Missile Toe can be seen as an upgrade to the Banana Launcher, since its projectiles chill zombies in a 3x3 area in addition to causing high damage to any zombie that they hit directly. However, this plant's ability to slow zombies down with each shot also applies to the Snow Pea, Winter Melon, and Cold Snapdragon, making this plant somewhat redundant, unless it is the only ice-based plant that the player brings. It can also work well in Frostbite Caves since it is immune to the freezing effect. Its massive 500 sun cost and 22s recharge time are notable weaknesses, however the high damage per shot and additional chill effect makes it effective at dealing with single targets while crowd-controlling all other Zombies in range through the slow effect.
- It is the fifth plant to be a direct upgrade of other plant, the first being Grapeshot, followed by Cold Snapdragon, the third being Wasabi Whip, and then the Bombegranate.
- It can be considered 'self-upgrade' of Banana Launcher since its re-arm time is slightly longer (22s-20s) and more narrow range (1x2 - 1x3 for Banana Launcher)
- The headwear on its head resembles a Christmas tree.
- It is the most expensive premium plant, sunwise.
- Its Almanac description jokes on how its name does not correlate to its appearance (specifically, it lacks missiles and toes).
- The projectiles affects a 3x3 area, despite their size.
- It is the second premium plant released alongside the Feastivus event, with the first being Sap-fling.
- It is the fifth plant to cost 500 sun, the first being Winter Melon, the second being Tile Turnip (if two of it has been placed on the lawn), the third being Imitater (depending on what it imitated) and the fourth being Banana Launcher.
- The recharge is said to be sluggish but it is actually fast in-game.
- This error occurred with Banana Launcher's Almanac entry too.
- Probably because their re-arm time. Banana Launcher's time is 20s, the same as the recharge time of sluggish-recharge plants. Missile Toe is 22s, only 2s later.
- The Missile Toe went through some changes.
- It originally only slowed enemies as shown here.
- Next, it did large 3x3 damage and slowed the zombies that were not defeated as shown here.
- Finally, it deals massive damage to the tile shot at, and slowed the zombies around it in a 3x3 area as shown here.
- The original Missile Toe was more in line with the original Cob Cannon.
- Unlike Banana Launcher, the player cannot control multiple Missile Toes at once. If the player tries this, the Missile Toes they tapped while controlling another Missile Toe will be in their recharge form and never target.
- Similarly for Banana Launcher, it cannot be planted on minecarts. If the player tries this, the message will appear: "Missile Toes are too icy for mine carts".
