Bungee Plumber is a basic common zombie trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Crazy class. It costs 1 to play, and its ability does 2 damage to a selected plant or the plant hero. Its closest plant counterpart is Banana Bomb.
Despite its name, Bungee Plumber bears more resemblance to the Engineer more than the Plumber, and more specifically, the one in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare rather than Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 due to the mustache on his face.

The best use for this trick is to destroy glass cannons like Zapricot, early plants that can be a threat later on like Pea Pod, or problematic plants like Repeater. Using this on your opponent when they have 2 health or less left is also a good idea, provided they don't block it. It can also be used to weaken the plant hero or a plant, so they can be finished off by another attack, or to force a block, making way for a bigger hit to come. A good strategy with Electric Boogaloo is to use Bungee Plumber to damage a heavily boosted plant, and then use Evaporate to destroy it instantly, all for only 2 brains. However, do note that you can only do it only once, unless you get lucky with Quasar Wizard.
If you think your opponent has this trick, try not to play frail threats such as Snowdrop, as they will not hesitate to destroy it, ruining your chances of building up good synergizing decks from the beginning. Use plants with more than 2 such as Torchwood or Wall-Nut to lessen the impact of this trick. Also, try to keep your health above 2, otherwise your opponent may play this to instantly defeat you.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Bungee Plumber.
- One can actually see a belt on the pants of the Bungee Plumber, albeit in a way where the belt would not keep its pants up, even though the description mentions that it dislikes belts.
- Even though it is a member of the Crazy class, Super Brainz can use it in the tutorial of the game.
- In the tutorial, its description is "Do 2 damage to a Plant." and its card appears to be a premium - uncommon card.
- However, as of update 1.14.13, this always appears whenever the trick is used on a plant.
- It is also possible to get this during update 1.14.13 via a glitch on Mad Chemist and Eureka. The card is named "Plumber," is not in any tribes, and cannot target the plant hero.
- It is the first of two zombies in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes to be based on the Plumber variant of the Engineer (although Bungee Plumber resembles the basic Engineer more in appearance), the other being Kitchen Sink Zombie.
- It and Secret Agent are the only professional tricks in the game.
