Banana Launcher is a galactic super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Kabloom class. He costs 2 to play, and has 3. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives the plant hero a Banana Bomb card at the start of every turn, starting from the turn he is played.
His description is a reference to his line "Banana!" which he shouts when he fires a banana in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- Class: Kabloom
- Tribe: Banana Plant

He only knows one word. But it's a good one.

This card has mediocre stats for his cost. However, since he can give the player a Banana Bomb at the start of each turn, which allows you to deal 2 damage to a zombie, this can be used to take control of the early-game. However, he has no base strength, so giving some via Grow-Shroom, Spineapple, or Berry Angry will allow him to defend himself well.
Speaking of Captain Combustible, he can use this as a cheap way to activate Re-Peat Moss's ability. He also has much more efficient ways to boost Banana Launcher, such as Fertilize. Another thing to note is that Banana Bombs gained from Banana Launcher's ability count as Conjured cards, so Captain Cucumber can help this around by making them free of cost.
The best use of this is against Crazy heroes as most Crazy zombies have low health, allowing the Banana Bombs to easily clean up those zombies. Possibly the best hero to use this against is Impfinity, as almost all his dangerous zombies can be easily destroyed with Banana Bombs. A few examples of such zombies are Stealthy Imp and Cuckoo Zombie.
However, be careful of Quickdraw Con Man, as every time Banana Launcher activate his ability, it counts as drawing a card, meaning he will do one unblockable damage to you.
Statwise, this plant is no threat at all. However, he could potentially ruin your early game by allowing the plant hero to damage and possibly finish your zombies off with the Banana Bombs given. If that is what you fear, you can simply use Rolling Stone or Weed Spray to destroy this plant.
Late-game, this plant will be less of a threat as the trick he gives won't do very much against the tougher zombies. However, be on the lookout for Dino-Roar cards, and Re-Peat Moss if your opponent is Captain Combustible.
You can also play Knight of the Living Dead or Shielded zombies since they are immune to Banana Bombs.
You can also have Quickdraw Con Man on the field to deter your opponent from just playing him.
- He and Banana Bomb are the only banana cards in the Kabloom class.
- When he attacks, he appears to use his Plant Food effect from Plants vs. Zombies 2, before launching mashed bananas at the zombie or zombie hero.
- He and Guacodile are the only plants to return from Big Wave Beach.
- Coincidentally, both are Super-Rare plants.
