Chlorophytum is a robot mainly colored white and violet. It has violet fins that are modified to resemble hair. Chlorophytum only has a single eye with a cyan color. It has an orange gemstone on its forehead, along with a violet gemstone on its chest. Chlorophytum's arms are shaped like guns, and it has pointy, orange legs that are used to defeat Klaxosaurs. Chlorophytum's arms are equipped with a heat sink known as "Wing Span", which allows the FRANXX to fly, though this ability hasn't been shown yet.
Chlorophytum is first seen in Episode 02, where Ikuno and Mitsuru connect and activate it during the startup ritual. The next day, they pilot it for the first time during the piloting drill.
In Episode 03, Chlorophytum fails to connect when Ikuno and Mitsuru fail to synchronize. Ikuno asks for time but Mitsuru tells her no to bother. This results in Chlorophytum staying behind during the battle while the other go on ahead.
When a Klaxosaur suddenly attacks in Episode 04, although Mitsuru is badly injured from piloting Strelizia, he refuses to back out of piloting and tells Ikuno that he hopes she can connect this time. She replies not to worry and starts to think of Ichigo. Because of this, Chlorophytum is able to successfully connect and activate. It heads off to battle the Klaxosaur, though there are some difficulties trying to defeat it until Strelizia arrives to assist them and is able to find the Klaxosaur's core and defeat it.
In Episode 08, a klaxosaur spills mysterious goo all over the FRANXX units, including Chlorophytum. The goo enters the cockpits and causes the girls’ suites to melt. Unlike the other boys who are embarrassed to see the girls being exposed, Mitsuru simply turns away and acts indifferent.
In Episode 11, Hachi informs Mitsuru and Ikuno that they haven't been able to fight and defeat Klaxosaurs as skillfully as the others with Chlorophytum. Later, when the FRANXX robots are getting ready to battle incoming Conrad-class Klaxosaurs, Chlorophytum's para-capacity levels fall and it disconnects, only for Ikuno find out that Mitsuru is ill. After Mitsuru feels better, he requests to pilot a FRANXX. Nana and Hachi do a capacity test with Ikuno and Mitsuru, but Mitsuru's para-capacity levels are too low and Hachi notes that he might become a pruning target if this continues. Because of this, Nana asks the parasites if they want to do a partner shuffle, and Kokoro replies she wants to pilot with Mitsuru. After commencing for a connection in Genista, their paracapacity rate is low but crossed the minimum requirement. Kokoro and Mitsuru become official partners, while a heartbroken Futoshi is assigned to now be partners with Ikuno.
When a Gutenberg-class Klaxosaur is detected, the FRANXX robots are sent off to battle it. Futoshi and Ikuno manage to link and activate Chlorophytum, and it acts as the defense alongside Genista in the battle. Futoshi nites Ikuno is getting intense as they try to attack the klaxosaur. While approaching the Klaxosaur to expose its core, Genista suddenly disconnects and Chlorophytum saves Genista from getting attacked by the Gutenberg-class Klaxosaur, counter-attacking with its bullets. Chlorophytum protects Genista until Kokoro and Mitsuru are able to reconnect and reactivate Genista successfully and expose the Klaxosaur's core, as Strelizia lands the finishing blow on the Klaxosaur.
In Episode 15, Chlorophytum takes part in the battle to help APE seize control of Gran Crevasse. However a Lehmann Super klaxosaur suddenly appears, smashes into Plantation 13, and sends a horde of Conrad klaxosaurs into it. Chlorophytum quickly runs out of power and uses up all its reserves, and uses a pillar to fight the klaxosaurs. A humanoid substance falls out of one of the Klaxosaurs and Miku notes it looks human. Zorome and Ikuno day that is impossible before witnessing a plantation self-destruct. Strelizia eventually neutralizes the klaxosaur but the units see the cores remain and are about to detonate. A giant, colossal hand comes from underground and crushes the cores, destroying Plantation 13 but miraculously sparing the squad.
In Episode 20 and 21, Chlorophytum takes part in the battle to help Strelizia take control of Hringhorni until an alien species called VIRM appears. VIRM begins fighting with the klaxosaurs and kills numerous parasites. Chlorophytum and the others later help Zero Two on her mission to rescue Hiro. Ikuno and Futoshi go full power to blast through a blocked corridor. Chlorophytum disconnects and Futoshi sees that Ikuno’s hair has turned white while she pants heavily.
In Episode 23, deapite Ikuno’s fragile health, Chlorophytum takes part in the galactic battle against VIRM to help Hiro rescue Zero Two.
In Episode 24, Chlorophytum becomes a monument within the parasites’ new community.
- Along with Genista, Chlorophytum is the only FRANXX who does not vaguely resemble the plant that gives it its namesake. The Chlorophytum plant species, also known as the "spider plant", has greenish-white flowers, while Chlorophytum's color scheme is mainly white and violet.
