    • Alternate Ability: Rainbow Heal Beam – Functions identically to the Heal Beam but with a different visual effect.
  • Heal Flower: Deploys a stationary flower that heals nearby teammates over time.
  • Sunbeam: Transforms the Sunflower into a stationary turret, firing a powerful beam that significantly damages enemies.
    • Alternate Ability: Solar Flare Beam – A more powerful version of the Sunbeam with a slower rate of fire and limited duration.
