Black-Eyed Pea is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. It costs 2SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives it +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH every time a zombie trick is played.


Its appearance and name is based on the black-eyed pea, which is a legume of a subspecies of the cowpea.

Its black eye is a visual pun on the words "black-eyed" in its name.

In addition, it may be a reference to "The Black Eyed Peas", an American musical group.

Card description

"You shoulda seen the other guy!"



By itself, Black-Eyed Pea is a powerful plant for its cost, with its 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH stats being at the high point for 2-cost cards. However, its real use lies in its ability as a deterrent against heavy trick usage from the opposing hero. As zombie tricks can be highly dangerous to the plants if properly used, Black-Eyed Pea can help in cutting trick usage by giving the plants notable benefits with each trick usage and force the enemy to be more careful. Black-Eyed Pea is technically immune to Nibble, as it will just gain the stats back (unless it only has 1 health, and the fact the zombie hero still gets healed).

This plant benefits a lot from opponents with a trick-based deck, so having Black-Eyed Pea against zombie heroes who rely on tricks like Immorticia would really help. Another occasion is Plant Missions, such as Professor Brainstorm's boss battle in Brains in Danger! where Professor Brainstorm's deck is full of Eureka cards, giving Black-Eyed Pea a huge advantage.

Additionally, since Black-Eyed Pea is a pea plant, it can benefit from The Podfather and Torchwood, making it even stronger. Black-Eyed Pea is also a bean plant, so this can also help in a bean deck with Admiral Navy Bean and Bean Counter, provided that you play as Green Shadow.


Avoid using tricks too early unless the zombie fighters can deal with it. This plant essentially locks down nearly all tricks and is pretty formidable early with its stats. Using powerful zombies will be the key, as well as bouncing this plant. However, Rolling Stone and Weed Spray can take this out immediately, as can Locust Swarm. Alternatively, zombies with stat-lowering abilities such as Pied Piper and Landscaper can weaken it without triggering its ability.

A sneaky strategy is if you have any instant-kill tricks like Rocket Science or Cut Down to Size, then you could spam cheap tricks until this plant has a high enough amount of strength points, then finish it off with the aforementioned tricks.

  • Before the 1.2.11 update, if a trick was used to get its health exactly to 0, it would not be destroyed, instead it would still do its special effect and survive with a +1/+1 boost. This does not affect tricks that instantly destroys it like Locust Swarm.
  • Despite being called a Black-Eyed Pea, it is also a bean card.
    • This is because the real life plant is a bean, as its name coming from the fact that it has the appearance of a "black-eyed" pea.
  • If the player uses Carried Away or Lurch for Lunch on a zombie to destroy it, it will not play its destroyed animation. Instead, it does its animation of activating its ability, and disappears without fading.
    • This is presumably a glitch, as this does not occur when it is destroyed by other tricks.
  • It has a lot in common with Paparazzi Zombie, as both gain +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH upon the play of a zombie trick.
  • It, Bonk Choy, and Muscle Sprout are the only Mega-Grow plants that attack with their arms.
    • Out of the three, Black-Eyed Pea is the only one that isn't in the leafy tribe.
