Throughout Plants vs. Zombies Wiki, various links have been colored in order to reflect their aspects and to "spruce" up the wiki. Such colors are listed below. Along with, this link goes to a website which shows the standard "name" colors, which are identified by typing their name for the color instead of a hexagonal code (hex).

Despite this, several colors have been blacklisted due to readability or other circumstances, which are also listed below.

How to use colors

On normal font/noncolored hyperlinks

<font color = "colorname"> Colored words go here</font>

Result: Colored words go here

<font color = #Hexcode>Colored words go here</font>

Result: Colored words go here

These are inputted directly onto articles, and are usable by all users.

All hyperlinks for one page

a[href="/wiki/Article"] {color:color}

This goes under MediaWiki:Wikia.css and is only accessible to administrators. Color can be either hex code or name colors, and it does not matter.

Changing all hyperlink colors

This is a theme-based topic, and only administrators can use it. It is Special:ThemeDesigner, then going to the "Customize" section. There is no source code tied to it, instead being configured by a visual editor similar to regular editing.
