Captain Combustible contains Mega-Grow and Kabloom cards. These two types of cards are big stat boosters meaning this hero is meant for boosting his cards. A great strategy is using Re-Peat Moss along with stat boosters, most notably, Blazing Bark causing this plant to do many super powerful bonus attacks.
However, Captain Combustible has one major disadvantage, which is his lack of Amphibious cards. Because of this, it might not be a good idea to use him in levels where there are more water lanes than normal. Try to make up for it using Berry Blast, Cherry Bomb or Meteor Strike to destroy the zombies placed in water lanes, or use plants like Sour Grapes and Kernel Corn to damage them, or Whipvine and Sweet Potato to move them to a designated lane.
- His flames are always blue, which is similar to a Torchwood fed with Plant Food in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- His eyes are always flaming, however occasionally they extinguish long enough for the player to see them.
- Captain Combustible is the only hero to have a unique color in his signature superpower cutscene (blue).
- He is likely based on Nova, a Marvel superhero.
- His description may allude to Grumpy Stumpy, a character in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, who is also Torchwood-based.
- The name is an example of alliteration.
