Localized surface plasmon and Klein tunneling resonances are two phenomena that were previously thought to be unrelated, where the former plays an important role in subwavelength optics while the latter is fundamental to relativistic quantum mechanics and physics of Dirac materials. We develop a rigorous theory for spin-1 Dirac-Weyl particles, which establishes a striking analogy between the two phenomena and unveils a deep connection between the distinct physical contexts, paving the way for gate-controlled surface plasmon mimetic electronics as well as for realizing localized spoof plasmons in a scope wider than previously thought. A possible experimental scheme is articulated.
