Cryo Yeti is a galactic legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 5 to play, and has 3/4. He does not have any traits, and his abilities give the Freeze effect to a plant when he is played, and give him +2/+2 every time a plant or zombie receives the Freeze effect. His plant counterpart is Snowdrop.
His appearance is based on Mr. Freeze, a villain from the Batman universe who wears a similar suit.
His description makes a reference to the proverbial phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.", which is used to encourage optimism in the face of misfortune.

Freezing Plants in the far reaches of Space is not what he'd imagined he'd spend his life doing. But as the old Yeti saying goes, "When life hands you snow, you make snow cones."

This zombie is really useful if you rely on a Freezing deck. In addition, this is also useful against plant heroes that also rely on freezing decks as well as whatever a plant or zombie is frozen, Cyro Yeti gets +2/+2. In addition, this will also freeze a free plant for an average zombie of 5/6 for 5. Never play this zombie if there are no plants on board as it will lose his second ability and turn weaker into a 3/4.
This zombie generally works well with Brain Freeze, due to his signature superpower, Frozen Tundra as it can Freeze all plants on all ground lanes which can boost this zombie massively if there are more plants on the ground lanes. Alternatively, he can use Cryo Yeti with Zookeeper to activate his ability and Cat Lady to boost her up, since he is a pet zombie.
This is a tough zombie that allows the opponent to freeze a free plant. But the biggest threat is that this can get a boost when a fighter gets frozen, meaning against Brain Freeze, you have to be careful as he can play a lot of Freeze cards like Frosty Mustache. To turn out even worse, if you are playing a freezing deck, this zombie can still be boosted regardless of each zombie you freeze as his ability affects all fighters that are frozen.
However, if you are still using a freezing deck, Winter Squash is recommended as freezing Cyro Yeti could boost him but will destroy him right away. If this zombie gets out of hand, use Shamrocket, Doom-Shroom or Squash to destroy him. You can also Bounce this zombie if he has a huge boost, but be careful that he can be played again and he will freeze another plant at the next turn. While facing against Brain Freeze, watch out for any Zookeepers and Cat Ladies, at they will benefit from pet zombies being Bounced.
You can also rely on decks that ramp up resources to playing expensive cards. This is because that this zombie will be useless if there are no plants on board.
- He is currently the only monster card in the Sneaky class.
