This is a very strong zombie early on. If the player gets the chance to play him, play him immediately. Giving him health boosts will also make him extremely dangerous and difficult to destroy without the use of tricks.
Consider pairing him up with Sumo Wrestler or Terrify, which can move weak plants to his lane so he can activate its ability, or move dangerous plants out of his way so he can survive for longer. Because this is a sports zombie, Team Mascot will be able to boost it each turn in which both are alive.
Later on, he is usually very weak, as the opposing plant hero can play stronger plants that can outdamage the Arm Wrestler.
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 him into a 1/1 Goat.
If you move Arm Wrestler to a lane that already has plants, he will not receive a boost. Whipvine can easily handle Arm Wrestler, provided he hasn't gained too much health. Sweet Potato can do the same too, but it requires a plant that can take him out with Sweet Potato.
Bouncing him can simply force the Arm Wrestler back into their opponent's hand, removing all of the stat changes. However, it is recommended to bounce him only if he becomes too dangerous.
It is highly not recommended to use Shroom for Two as the Arm Wrestler will activate his ability twice, gaining double the stats, making him 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.
- Transforming a plant on his lane will trigger his ability.
