Peel Shield is Citron's premium legendary plant signature superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian and PvZH Smarty IconSmarty classes. It costs 1SunPvZH to play, and its abilities make all plants unable to be hurt for the turn it is played, and give Citron a card.


It is based on one of Citron's abilities from Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 with the same name.

Card description

Orange you glad Citron is here to protect you?

Update history

Update 1.2.12

  • Ability added: "Draw a Card."



Due to the nature of this trick, using this can make you near invincible when you have a plant in every lane, and the only things that can hurt you are PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough zombies along with damaging cards and abilities that can target the plant hero.

A plant that synergizes extremely well with this trick is Soul Patch, as the lane it is on is basically impenetrable, and anything that manages to hit you is absorbed by Soul Patch's ability, basically making both your plants and you invincible. However, keep in mind that they can still be destroyed via destroying tricks or health-lowering tricks such as Locust Swarm or Nibble.

This trick is also very useful against zombie fighters with high strength and the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait, as the shielded plants nullify the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait.

If you are desperate for cards, you could play Peel Shield to get one, although it is a waste unless you have some plants on the field.


Unlike Uncrackable, you should focus on lanes without plants, as you cannot do any damage in lanes with them. You can, however, use instant-kill cards to destroy them, as they are only protected from damage and not instant destruction. If a Soul Patch is on the field, save your brains for the next turn as you cannot hurt literally anything this turn, unless you destroy Soul Patch.

In rare cases, the AI may play this at the start of the game or when there are no plants on the field, since it also draws a card.




  • Its description is a parody of the punchline of a famous knock-knock joke, "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"
  • It is the only fruit trick in the game.
  • It is one of the two cards that protect plants, the other being Root Wall.
    • Coincidentally, both are superpowers, are in the Guardian class, and can be used by Citron.
