Pecanolith is a galactic legendary plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class. He costs 5SunPvZH to play, and has 7PvZH StrengthHeart. He does not have any traits, and his ability makes the amount of damage all plants and zombies do equal to their health stat. This ability persists until all Pecanoliths are removed from the field.


He is based on a pecan plant, and the monolith from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

His name is a portmanteau of "pecan," the real-life plant he is based on, and "monolith," a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock.

His description references his ability and the description of the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey.


  • Class: Guardian
  • Tribe: Nut Plant
  • Traits: None
  • Ability: All Plant and Zombies attack using their HeartPvZH instead of their StrengthPvZH.
  • Set - Rarity: Galactic - Legendary

Essentially a 5-cost with 7StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH, this plant can easily turn the tide of the battle very quickly. His ability affects plants and zombies alike, and can prevent some high-strength zombies like Exploding Imp or Newspaper Zombie from doing major damage. However, his main use is to utilize the Guardian class's high-health plants such as Wall-Nut, Water Chestnut, and Garlic. These plants will be able to fight back with heavy damage, while still being able to defend themselves. Cards that boost plants' health such as Photosynthesizer and Steel Magnolia also synergize nicely.

This card is very useful against the PvZH Crazy IconCrazy class as they consist of mainly low-health fighters, with Jester, Valkyrie and Tankylosaurus being the only exceptions.

Take note that fighters with traits such as the PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye trait will still be able to use those traits during combat (with PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero being the only exception), making plants such as Cactus much more effective.

Each Guardian hero has their way of using this plant well:

Being a nut plant, Guardian heroes can use this with either Smackadamia to boost his health or Mirror-Nut to make the zombie hero think twice before using damaging tricks on him.

Avoid using this if there are many high health zombies like Overstuffed Zombie or Wannabe Hero. This will compound your problems as they will do more damage, especially if these zombies have PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy.


Against Pecanolith, the best method is to remove him with a trick. Hearty heroes can easily wipe the board with a single use of Weed Spray or use Rolling Stone on this to remove this for a low cost. Other heroes may need to use PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies or tricks like Locust Swarm. Because he is a nut plant, PvZH Beastly IconBeastly heroes can use Squirrel Herder to instantly destroy this plant, although they must look out for Grave Buster or Blockbuster. Crazy and PvZH Brainy IconBrainy heroes, especially Professor Brainstorm, however, will have to get creative and rely on card synergies or damaging tricks in order to destroy, or at least weaken him efficiently.

Zombie decks that focus on low health zombie like Imp or dancing decks will struggle, as this card will make them all do less damage, unless their health was boosted in some way. On the bright side, PvZH Hearty IconHearty heroes will be able to use health boosting tricks to retaliate against Pecanolith if Weed Spray or Rolling Stone is unavailable. They can also play high-health zombies such as Zombie King and Wannabe Hero, or PvZH Armored IconArmored zombies like Knight of the Living Dead to make the plant hero think twice before using this. Overstuffed Zombie also benefits from this as he will have more attack and when the zombie destroys a plant, he will gain more strength.

A good tip for Hearty heroes is to keep your health topped up with cards such as Medic, as then if your opponent plays this card, you can play Wannabe Hero to a greater effect. As Rustbolt or Z-Mech, you can use Rock Wall to boost a zombie's health while increasing its damage output by a lot.



  • His description most likely references the anomalous properties brought on by the monoliths in "A Space Odyssey" upon being touched.
  • A bone can be seen in the pile of dirt around his base, referencing the scene at the beginning of "A Space Odyssey" in which a monkey begins using bones as a weapon due to the presence of the monolith.
