Clique Peas are an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and members of the Mega-Grow class. They cost 1 to play, and have 1/1. They have no traits, and their abilities shuffle two Clique Peas into the plant hero's deck, give all Clique Peas +1/+1 and costs +1 for the rest of the current match, all of which activate when they are played.
They are based on the chickpea, a legume of the family Fabaceae. Their name is a portmanteau of "clique," a small close-knit group of people who do not readily allow others to join them, and "chickpea," the plant they are based on.
Their ability and description references the "clique" part of their name.

Try to play this card in a deck with lots of card draw, since all Clique Peas get boosted when you play one. It is recommended to bring cards that draw other cards such as Flourish so you can get more Clique Peas earlier. This works best with Chompzilla and Grass Knuckles, as they both have Holo-Flora as their minor superpowers, allowing them to draw cards cheaply and, in turn, getting a copy of Clique Peas card faster.
Since Clique Peas are both in the bean and pea tribes, they activate the abilities of Admiral Navy Bean and Bean Counter when played, and benefit from cards like Torchwood and The Podfather. They can also be Conjured by Cosmic Bean, Cosmic Pea and Mayflower. However, the traits that those cards grant them like the Team-Up or Double Strike will not apply to the copies shuffled into your deck.
Clique Peas are best played early game, so you can quickly get more Clique Peas and increase the value of all Clique Peas cards you draw. Remember, playing a Clique Pea also boosts all Clique Peas currently on the field, which may come to your advantage. This card is very similar to Going Viral, though it does not draw an extra card. Since this only costs 1, multiple copies of this card can be easily played in one turn. This can cause you to run out of cards in your hand, so having more card draw may come in handy, especially in late game. Clique Peas is a strong early-game card, beginning as a 2/2 card, and is also a very good finisher, as it boosts itself. Be careful of hard removal cards, which can easily take out large Clique Peas.
Since they boost themselves, both the plant you placed and the others already on the field, they work well with Potted Powerhouse, as she will boost herself enormously for each Clique Peas boosted, allowing another way to deal massive damage to the opponent if the Clique Peas are unable to do so. Clique Peas also work well with Onion Rings, as its ability will boost Clique Peas's stats on top of their boosted stats, making them even bigger threats.
However, be wary of Total Eclipse as if you have not played Clique Peas yet, Total Eclipse's ability will take place before Clique Peas's ability, destroying it before it can activate its ability. Another zombie you need to worry would be Supernova Gargantuar as if he or another Gargantuar destroys one of the Clique Peas, all the Clique Peas on the field will be destroyed.
A general Clique Pea user will attempt to mulligan for as many Clique Peas as possible due to their ability of "giving them +1/+1 for the rest of the game." The ability buffs Clique Peas on board so if they play two of these by turn 2, you're going to face two Clique Peas with 3/3 stats each. If this task is performed, it can be very hard to deal with.
If the plant hero happens to pull this tactic against you, try to keep yourself as ahead as possible. Crazy heroes can deal with the first Clique Pea by using Bungee Plumber or any other removal so that other Clique Peas don't buff it in following turns. Brainy heroes can use Teleportation Zombie or Teleport to block off the Clique Peas from damaging your hero because Clique Pea users tend to try to finish the game as fast as they can before you accumulate enough brains to deal with them by playing them in empty lanes. Sneaky heroes can bounce and use Deadly zombies to deal with Clique Peas, though be wary of bouncing them as they gain an extra +1/+1 worth of stats. Hearty can stall turns with Planetary Gladiator and use Escape through Time to make their hero immune to damage for the turn as a last-ditch effort. The Beastly class' only way to deal with them is to reduce their stats and rely on the other class of their hero to get rid of Clique Peas.
Several Beastly cards can deal with Clique Peas. As mentioned before, Supernova Gargantuar can destroy all of the Clique Peas on the field when he destroys a copy of it. Biodome Botanist can clog all the lanes with 1/1 plants, leaving no space for the plant hero to place Clique Peas on the field. Extinction Event is also useful against multiple Clique Peas.
- They are the second card that can make infinite copies of itself, the first being Going Viral.
- It is the first and currently only plant card and fighter to do so.
- They are one of the two fighters in the game that will cause an effect that will last for the rest of the game when played, in this case, giving all copies of itself +1/+1 and cost +1 for the rest of the current match. The other is Intergalactic Warlord, which gives all zombies +1/+1 for the rest of the current match.
- When the zombie hero sees the plant hero draws a card that gets a boosting animation, the zombie hero can ensure that the plant hero drew Clique Peas.
- If the player listens closely, this card says "hello" when they are played.
- Occasionally, they will say "alright, alright" during their idle animation.
- Their description has a grammatical error:
- It is said by one of the Clique Peas, but the description does not have quotation marks at the start and end of it.
- The description also lacks a comma after the word Wednesdays.
- Clique Peas and Quasar Wizard are the only cards that speak audible English when played.
- Clique Peas always have sunglasses on no matter which day it is, which therefore, makes the description inaccurate.
