Copter Commando is a token zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. He is made by Hail-a-Copter, but can also be made by Portal Technician, or obtained as a card from Eureka or Triplication. He costs 6 to play (only when he is Bounced, and as a card from Eureka or Triplication), and has 6/5. He does not have any traits or abilities.
His description makes a reference to how Copter Commando does not have the Amphibious trait despite being a helicopter that can fly over water, as Aquaphobia is a type of phobia that involves persistent and abnormal fear of water.

This zombie is very powerful, with 6/5, and can be played in the Zombie Tricks phase normally via Hail-a-Copter. That way, you can choose which lane you want to play him in without worrying about what the plant hero can do for that turn.
Being in the science tribe, Copter Commando can also benefit from Zombot Drone Engineer and Gadget Scientist, as well as activate Interdimensional Zombie's ability, making him even more effective. He can also benefit from Toxic Waste Imp and Imp Commander as he is also a part of the Imp tribe, but these combos are only normally possible with Super Brainz or Huge-Gigantacus.
This zombie is really powerful due to being normally played in the Zombie Tricks phase, and you have to be careful when the enemy players don't do anything or save more than 6 in the zombies play phase. Cards like Squash and Sizzle can destroy him easily. You can also Bounce this zombie, so whenever the enemy player wants to play this card again, he or she will be forced to play him in the Zombies Play phase. If you can predict Hail-a-Copter being played, use Brainana, Dark Matter Dragonfruit or even Forget-Me-Nuts to prevent it from being played. You can also use Shamrocket to destroy this zombie instantly. If you choose to use damaging plants alone, destroy any Toxic Waste Imps before you try.

- Hail-a-Copter shares the same card description.
- When he is hurt or destroyed, the word "Achtung" is shown on the windscreen, which means "Danger" in German. This appears no matter what language the player is playing this game as.
- Also, when he is destroyed, the Imp says "Uh oh" before the helicopter explodes.
- He is the first Imp zombie in the Brainy class, the second being Leprechaun Imp.
- He is the most expensive token zombie.
