Time to Shine is a super-rare plant superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Mega-Grow class. It costs 1 to play, and its ability makes a plant do a bonus attack. Its zombie counterpart is Lurch for Lunch.
It is based on the phrase "Time to shine," which means to show yourself off and be recognized, as a plant "shows itself off" by attacking once more than usual.
Its appearance is literally a spot of sunlight, hence the word "shine."
- Class: Mega-Grow
- Tribe: Superpower Trick
- Ability: A Plant does a Bonus Attack.

Makes you feel all warm, glowy, and like kickin' Zombie butt.
Being a cheap way of giving a plant a bonus attack, this can turn the tables if played on a heavy-hitting plant to destroy or heavily damage a dangerous zombie or your opponent, or on a Frozen plant to thaw it. However, since it can only be played once, you should think about what plant you should use it on.
A good example is to use it on Re-Peat Moss, since it does 2 bonus attacks, which could be very dangerous if its strength has been boosted. This can also activate Party Thyme's ability to draw a card. Captain Combustible can play this on an Anti-Hero plant to do massive damage, which can easily turn the tables if your opponent does not have enough brains to deal with them.
Do not use it on plants with no strength, as this trick will do nothing. In addition, do not play this trick if Bonus Track Buckethead is on the field as it will also do nothing.
Simply having Bonus Track Buckethead on the field renders this trick useless. If that isn't an option, having zombies with high health can somewhat prevent your defenses from crumbling under an extra bonus attack. If you predict that the plant hero will play this next turn, you can play a Gravestone zombie to block the bonus attack.
