She's a banana first and a dinosaur second. But it's a close second.

Bananasaurus Rex is a premium legendary plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives it +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH every time the plant hero draws a card, and makes it do a bonus attack after the initial combat if it does not get destroyed in the process.


It is based on the banana, an edible fruit, botanically a berry, produced by several kinds of large herbaceous, flowering plants in the genus Musa, and a Tyrannosaurus, more commonly known as Tyrannosaurus rex, a carnivorous dinosaur in the genus of coelurosaurian theropoda dinosauria.

Its name is a portmanteau of the words "banana", the real-life plant this is based on, and "Tyrannosaurus rex", the real-life dinosaur this is based on. It could also be a reference to the famous internet gamer of the same name, though this may just be a coincidence.

Card description

She's a banana first and a dinosaur second. But it's a close second.

Update history

Update 1.4.14

  • Tribe change: Fruit Animal Plant → Banana Animal Plant



While it is initially not the most cost effective plant, it can become very strong in the late game. Try to increase its power by using cards that allow the player to draw more cards, like Flourish and Holo-Flora. Bananasaurus Rex also acts as an alternative Repeater, but it does not benefit from Torchwood. However, Team-Up plants like Torchwood can protect it in the early turns, because it is weaker at the beginning of the game.

Party Thyme is a very good choice too, since Bananasaurus Rex does a bonus attack, causing it to draw cards to boost Bananasaurus Rex. However, it is weak, so make sure to protect and/or boost Party Thyme. Other plants that can also draw cards like Sage Sage and Bean Counter can also boost it. Mayflower giving the player a card upon hitting the zombie hero can also boost Bananasaurus Rex's stats. Keeping a received superpower works too because it counts as drawing a card.

Flourish, Re-Peat Moss, Bananasaurus Rex and possibly Party Thyme together are a great combo. When you play Flourish, Bananasaurus Rex will gain +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH while Re-Peat Moss attacks. Then, Party Thyme will draw a card, boosting Bananasaurus Rex's stats again. Later on, it will draw once more from Re-Peat Moss' ability.


You should target this plant before it grows too strong. This can occasionally be very hard to do if lots of cards are drawn. However, the turn it's used can be troublesome to deal with if not boosted. This is because most tricks cannot deal with this efficiently, and will need support. In addition, brains will likely be spent, and there will be no time for tricks. Electrobolt can easily defeat this before anything happens. The Smash could also use Slammin' Smackdown as well. If it gets out of control, use instant-kill cards like Rocket Science, Locust Swarm, PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies, or Zombot Sharktronic Sub to destroy it. If none of these options are available, destroy plants that give the opposing hero more cards such as Mayflower or Party Thyme to slow the process of boosting the Bananasaurus Rex. Unless necessary (such as boosting it to use Rocket Science), do not use Regifting Zombie when there is a Bananasaurus Rex or it will gain +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH unless you plan to destroy it afterwards.

Bananasaurus rex


  • It is one of the seven plants that are based on a banana, the other four being Brainana, Banana Split, Half Banana, Banana Tree, Banana Launcher and Banana (an unused plant in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars).
  • It is the only animal card in the Mega-Grow class.
    • It is also the only one to currently be based on a dinosaur.
  • In the release trailer, its tongue is red. However, it is vanilla-colored in-game.
    • Also, in the trailer, it is seen eating a Zombie, however, it leaps up and bites them instead in the game.
  • Prior to an update, it did not boost itself when the player drew a card at the start of every turn. This was probably to prevent it from being a hybrid between Pea Pod and Repeater that does not benefit from Torchwood or The Podfather.
