Cheese Cutter is a galactic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Beastly class. He costs 1 to play, and has 2/2. He does not have any traits, and his ability Conjures a gourmet card, including another Cheese Cutter, every time he does damage to the plant hero, and reduces its cost by 1. This ability does not activate if the zombie hero already has 10 cards in their hand.
His name is based on the phrase "Cutting the cheese", which is another way of saying passing gas.
- Class: Beastly
- Tribes: Gourmet Mustache Zombie
- Traits: None
- Ability: When this hurts the Plant Hero: Conjure a Gourmet card, and it costs 1 less.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Super-Rare

This can be a very good turn 1 play, as he could potentially give you a card advantage while putting a 2/2 zombie on the field. He can be used in most Beastly decks, but keep in mind that he does not have any tribe synergy, not to mention that he can only activate his ability if he hurts the plant hero, so try to play him in an empty lane.
Environment cards such as Laser Base Alpha (Brain Freeze only) or Moon Base Z (Electric Boogaloo only) also allow Cheese Cutter to get a guaranteed shot to the hero and to activate his ability easily. You can also boost him by giving him Frenzy to destroy most plants that block his lane and aim at hitting the plant hero to activate his ability.
Brain Freeze can use him with Dr. Spacetime to make the Gourmet cards he conjures cost 2 less instead of 1 less. In addition, he can use Smoke Bomb to move Cheese Cutter into an empty lane so that he can activate his ability.
The Smash can use tricks like Camel Crossing, Monster Mash, or even better, Going Viral or Escape through Time so that Cheese Cutter remains alive. Additionally, Cone Zone will increase Cheese Cutter's max health to 5 if he is in that lane, but be very careful as the environment can be replaced, and Mega-Grow heroes can move the zombie away from the environment.
Immorticia can make him do bonus attacks which can be handy when your opponent decides to block it with a plant, or allow Cheese Cutter to Conjure an extra gourmet card, while Electric Boogaloo can play damaging tricks to clear any plants in Cheese Cutter's way.
For easy reference, here is the list of cards Cheese Cutter can Conjure and their cost change:
Your opponent can get a huge card advantage if this stays on the field. He can be taken out easily on turn 1 by most plant cards. He can also be destroyed using a Banana Bomb unless he gets a health boost. But for most of the time, try to block Cheese Cutter with any plant as his ability only activates when he hurts the plant hero. You can also use Soul Patch to prevent his ability from activating, but beware of cards such as Locust Swarm which can easily destroy Soul Patch.
- The pupils on his eyes in his card are smaller than those in-game.
- He is the first card to synergize with the Gourmet tribe.
- During his idle animation, if the player listens closely, they can hear him occasionally say "Cheese" and "Yum".
