This is a very strong zombie early on. If the player get the chance to play it, play it immediately. Giving it health boosts will also make it extremely dangerous and difficult to destroy without the use of tricks.

Consider pairing it up with Sumo Wrestler or Terrify, which can move weak plants to its lane so it can activate its effect, or move dangerous plants out of its way so it can survive for longer.

Later on, it is usually very weak, as the opposing plant hero can play stronger plants that can outdamage the Arm Wrestler.


One counter is to use superpower tricks such as Solar Flare's Signature superpower Sunburn. If you don't want to use superpower tricks you can use early removal tricks such as Berry Blast.

Using Bonk Choy is effective to take out an Arm Wrestler early on, as long as the Arm Wrestler did not recently face any other plant. Rose's Goatify will always neutralize the Arm Wrestler as it turns it into a 1/1 Goat.

If you move Arm Wrestler to a lane that already has plants, it will not receive a boost. Whipvine can easily handle Arm Wrestler, provided it hasn't gained too much health. Sweet Potato can do the same too, but it requires a plant that can take it out with Sweet Potato.

Bouncing it can simply force the Arm Wrestler back into their opponent's hand, removing all of the stat changes. However, it is recommended to bounce it only if it becomes too dangerous.

It is highly not recommended to use Shroom for Two as the Arm Wrestler will activate its effect twice, gaining double the stats, making it more dangerous. However, Pair of Pears, on the other hand, can take out an Arm Wrestler and have one pear survive. Though, this isn't a good sun trade, being a 4 to 1 trade, preventing you from playing other cards. However, the zombie hero can easily pull Bungee Plumber or other tricks to get rid of at least one of the pears, keeping the Arm Wrestler alive.
