The official name of this plant is Saucer. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Saucer (飞碟瓜; pinyin: fēidié guā) is the fifth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Similar to Stunion, it stuns zombies for around 10 seconds and then flies away. If the Saucer is level 2, it can capture low health zombies while it captures higher health zombies if it is level 3.


Although referred as a zucchini in-game, Saucer is more similar to Cucurbita pepo, better known as pumpkin. Its body is based on a flying saucers, also known as flying disc. It is a term for a supposed type of described flying craft with a disc or saucer-shaped body, commonly used generically to refer to any anomalous flying object. Its eyes resemble alien's eyes in general descriptions.

Almanac entry

Sun cost: 25

DAMAGE: Massive
AREA: 3x3



    In English:

    Saucer emits light to capture zombies close to it.

    Plant feature: yellow plant, flying plant, alien

    Everyone always mistakes Saucer as an alien, but they slowly discover that it just doesn't integrate with them because its too shy. However, don't make him angry, being shone on by its light is not an easy thing.

Much like Iceberg Lettuce, when fed with Plant Food, Saucer stuns all zombies on the screen.


The stunning effect lasts twice as long.

Just like Stunion, Saucer is a good plant to stall zombies. Because Stunion is not an airborne plant, the player should use Saucer if the player is playing Sky City, as they have the same sun cost. In other areas however, Stunion should be used due to its recharging speed.

However, a level 2 or 3 Saucer with the capture ability usually means it is more worthwhile to bring it along over Stunion.

Saucer should also be used if the player is going to engage Robot zombies like Disco-tron 3000 and Mecha-Football Zombies as unlike Stunion, Saucer can stun them.

    • It is the only pumpkin plant not to have a carved out face.
  • It is based on a typical alien UFO.
  • Despite being referred as a zucchini in-game, its appearance is more pumpkin-like.
  • In its Puzzle Piece as well as the seed packet, it seems to be frowning for unknown reasons.
    • However, it is still smiling in the Costumed Puzzle Piece.
  • If it freezes while stunning in Frostbite Caves, it will appear above the ice block. However it will still be frozen.
  • If hit by bullets while stunning zombies, it can die and it instantly ends the stunning progress earlier.
  • If the player digs it up just as the stunning effect ends, the player will get a small amount of sun back from the shovel power-up.
  • It also works in the middle of the stunning. The stunning effect will however persist, ending only at the normal duration of around 10 seconds.
