This page contains art and concepts of the Chinese version of Plants vs Zombies 2. Please note that these are not fake, but rather scrapped ideas, information about upcoming plants, zombies, worlds and unreleased features. As such, these sections and pictures may contain spoilers.

Unused plants

Small Cherry

The cherry that is left behind by Cherry Bomb once it reaches Level 2. Its sun cost is 0.

Carrot Missile

The missile created by Carrot Missile Truck's Plant Food effect. Its sun cost is 0.

Small Chestnut

Small Chestnut Team's projectile is also its own plant. Its sun cost is 0.


Even though seen in the game, the plant itself was never used. Has a sun cost of 50.


It is internally referred to as bashopult. This plant has a sun cost of 123, unusual for the series as it has a sun price that is not a multiple of 25.


Sunpod was imported into the Chinese version with the Lost City update, but is still unused.


Sungun was imported into the Chinese version with the Lost City update, but is still unused.

Small Explode-O-Nut

Left behind once Explode-O-Nut reaches a certain level after being eaten. It costs 0 sun.

Unused zombies

Kongfu Boss

An unused boss found in the textures. Was most likely an early version of an existing boss, meant for an unreleased event or a third boss for Kongfu World.

Unreleased Beach Zombie

Photographer Zombie

In Lost City, there was originally going to be a zombie holding an old camera as shown in advertisements, with its ability unknown. It was scrapped and only its Almanac texture was left.


  • The unused Kongfu World boss appears in the overview screen for this world in versions 1.8.0 through 1.9.0.

Unused Levels

Pyramid of Doom

The Pyramid of Doom is possibly found in the game's files. It can be only obtained by hacking. In the unmodded version of this game, players can see a pyramid on the top right of the whole Ancient Egypt map which is where the Pyramid of Doom would be. It is unknown if the other endless zones will make it to this version, since only Pyramid of Doom can be played.

Speedy Lanes

There is an unused minigame in the code called Speedy Lanes. Zombies have double speed in normal speed gameplay but plants and sun have normal speed. In newer versions of the game, zombies have the same speed as usual. This minigame was also unused in the international version.

Unused Christmas Event Level

Found in the v1.6.6 update, there is an unused level which was possibly meant for some sort of event. The file RTON name is "ProtectChristmas1.rton," and the level name text reads "周年盛宴 (Anniversary feast)."

Unused costumes

Unused Puzzle Pieces

Since some plants don't have Plant Food abilities or don't have upgrades, there was no need for costumed Puzzle Pieces for them except Cherry Bomb and Loquat. However, Sun Bean is not a instant use plant.

Unused Plant Levels

Added in the 1.8.0 update, there exist graphics for a Level 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Although the actual stats will revert back to Level 1, possibly due to missing code.

Unused shields in Sky City

There are two unused types of shields in the game's files, where one seemed to be made out of metal while the other was made of gold. They could have been used as upgrades to the regular barrier, or may have been just made as concept designs for the shield.

Unused Trophy

Added in the version 2.2.0 update, the trophy was most likely meant to be awarded once you've completed Modern Day.

Developer Text

Only found in the world icon textures in the Chinese version as of version 2.2.0.

Beta costs

A few of the plants had a different sun cost:
