Sugarcane Master (蔗师父; pinyin: zhe shīfu) is a plant from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was added in the 2.0 update.
Sugarcane Master uses its nunchaku to attack zombies in two ranges in a range of 3 tiles in front of it, with each attack dealing 1.25 normal damage shots. It repeats a cycle of 3 attacks with its nunchaku and a final attack with its "elbow" (level 2 and above). After that, it will cool down for a while.
It is based on genus Saccharum, commonly known as sugarcane.
Its costume (a yellow suit) is references to Bruce Lee.

蔗师父也是布鲁斯·李的狂热粉丝, 为了表达对偶像的敬意, 他自小就开始练习蔗拳道, 并耍得一手好双蔗棍。模仿布鲁斯·李是他最爱做的事情, 以至于现在说话只会 “啊哒! 啊哒!” 地叫。
Sugarcane Master can use its cane nunchucks to attack zombies in front of it.
Plant feature: Purple plant, powerful martial art skills
Plant Food effect
Sugarcane Master sends out many circling sticks of nunchaku in 3 lanes (3 tiles down the lanes), and finishes with a wave down the center lane (3 tiles). It will also hit itself with its nunchaku and get dazed, which is only a effect in appearance.
All nunchaku attacks have an exploding effect, which can deal more damage.
This plant is quite an offensive one, but attacks slowly, so use slowing plants such as Primal Rafflesia to max out its damage potential. When leveled up, its knockback attack can be useful, but note that it does not work on mechanical enemies. Since it is melee, you want to protect it with something high-health like a Wall-nut.
- It and Sugarcane (an unused plant from Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars), are the only plants based on the sugarcane plant. Bamboo Brother's internal name is Sugarcane as well.
- It is the second character in the Chinese version to use a nunchaku. The first is Nunchaku Zombie.
- It is also the only plant to use one.
- Bruce Bamboo can also be considered using a nunchaku, but it itself is one.
- They are all Chinese exclusive and references to Bruce Lee.
- When its Plant Food effect ends, there's a chance that it hits itself with its own nunchaku. This is only a cosmetic effect.
- It was originally called Sugarcane Long.
- The "Sugarcane-kwondo" (蔗拳道) in the Almanac entry is a reference to Taekwondo (跆拳道), a Korean martial art.
