Pepper-mint is a Power Mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It sets all the lanes on fire, dealing damage to zombies six times, and it can boost Pepper-mint Family plants. Pepper-mint Family plants include:
- Fire Peashooter
- Ghost Pepper
- Hot Date
- Hot Potato
- Jack O' Lantern
- Lava Guava
Like other Power Mints, Pepper-mint cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. He remains on the lawn for 6 seconds at level 1.
Pepper-mint shares his name with a real-life plant; however, the word "pepper" (specifically, the chili pepper, a vegetable commonly depicted as hot/fiery) is emphasized, hence his appearance and ability.
Pepper-mint's family contains a fairly high number of plants, so it's versatile. In addition, most of the plants in Pepper-mint's family deal high amounts of damage, so using Pepper-mint is ideal, as some of the plants deal monstrous amounts of damage when paired with him. For example, a max-level Lava Guava deals an eye-boggling 1200 damage per shot on eruption and 600 damage per shot on the lava tile, while other plants like Fire Peashooter and Pepper-pult deal stupendously high amounts of damage. It is a poor choice to use Pepper-mint against Imp Dragons, as the fire plants won't do any damage to the Imp Dragons, rendering them useless.

Pepper-mints set off lane-wide bursts of flame when planted and provide a temporary boost to all Pepper-mint plants on the lawn.
"Peppermint-mint Family plants:
Pepper-mint likes heat. He's down with flames, he digs on fire, he's a total madman for oxidization and ignition. If he sees you rubbing two sticks together, he'll come over and ask about it. He can't help himself."
- Despite not being a fire plant, Ghost Pepper is in the Pepper-mint Family. This may be simply because she is a pepper.
- His fire trails are similar to Jalapeno's fire trail.
- He and Spear-mint are the Power Mints share the same name with real-life plant.
