Bean Counter is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its abilities add 2 Weenie Beanie cards into the plant hero's hand when it is played, and give it +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH every time a bean card, including another Bean Counter, is played.


It is based on a bean, a common name for large seeds of several genera of the flowering plant family Fabaceae, and an accountant, a practitioner of accounting or accountancy.

Its name and appearance are both puns on "bean counter", a synonym of "accountant", as Bean Counter is literally a bean with a counter.

Card description

"Every bean is accounted for. I assure you, they all add up."



Bean Counter may have low stats for a super-rare plant, but it can turn dangerous when used properly. It acts similarly to Muscle Sprout, except that only beans count, including bean tricks. First, you need to time when to play it. If it is played as soon as you make 4 sun, it may be destroyed very easily since you don't have any sun left to play other beans. On the other hand, doing so would benefit other Bean Counters played after, due to it adding two Weenie Beanies into your hand too for free. If you want to play it as soon as possible, playing it behind a Team-Up plant is the best choice. Using a Team-Up plant is also a safe way to boost this plant too. Arguably the best turn to play this is on turn 5, and then immediately play a Weenie Beanie you acquired. This is because its strength stat will be 3, which cannot be destroyed by any trick other than B-flat, Zombot's Wrath, Cakesplosion, Slammin' Smackdown, and Locust Swarm.

As mentioned before, you need to play beans in order for it to be stronger. Weenie Beanie is a basic, yet cheap way to make Bean Counter stronger. Admiral Navy Bean is also great because it is very cheap, has the Amphibious and Team-Up traits, and benefits from playing beans too. Sow Magic Beans is also good because it adds 4 Magic Beanstalks into your deck, which are bean plants too, and activate Bean Counter's ability itself.

Also, there are two plants that benefit from Bean Counter, both from the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. Bananasaurus Rex is one of them, as the 2 Weenie Beanies added to your hand count as drawing 2 cards, giving it an instant +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH. Potted Powerhouse is also an example, as it is relatively easy to boost Bean Counter, boosting Potted Powerhouse a lot in the process. However, both combos are restricted to Green Shadow.


Bean Counter has low stats and cannot be boosted if it is played as soon as your opponent makes 4 sun, but if it is left unharmed, its stats can go up very quickly. Therefore, you should have a zombie that is capable of destroying this plant as early as possible, or play destroying tricks, depending on Bean Counter's strength. If Bean Counter has not been boosted yet, play Rolling Stone or Weed Spray to destroy it immediately before it gets out of control. If its strength goes over 4, play Rocket Science. Locust Swarm can destroy this regardless of strength.

Bouncing this should be the last resort as while its stats will be reset, your opponent can replay this plant and get 2 more Weenie Beanies.
