Shadow Family achievement
Shadow Family achievement The Shadow Family
Complete a level with 20 powered Shadow Plants

Difficulty: Medium

The Shadow Family is an achievement in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is worth 10 points on Game Center for iOS devices and 1,000 XP on Google Play Games for Android devices. To earn it, the player must complete a level with 20 powered shadow plants.


Because the shadow plants must be powered in order to count towards this achievement, the player must bring Moonflower and other shadow plants. However, it is possible to earn this achievement by using Moonflowers only, as it is a shadow plant itself. You can also complete this achievement with two columns of Moonflowers on the second and third lane and two whole columns of other shadow plants on the first and fourth lane.


  • The achievement's name is a possible reference to The Addams Family, as both the shadow plants and The Addams Family have a dark theming.
  • There is a glitch where planting 20 plants that are not shadow plants next to Moonflowers also unlock this achievement.
  • The achievement's icon features a Shadow-shroom without its tongue sticking out.
    • This is the only time Shadow-shroom appears like that.
      • However, in Shadow-shroom's idle animation, if the player pauses or screenshots at the right time, it may not be sticking out its tongue.
