Doubled Mint is a much more powerful version of Pea Pod. If it is undefended, it will be destroyed too early and never really have an impact. When given time, it can overwhelm the zombie hero by achieving incredible damage and health. Unlike Pea Pod, Doubled Mint also benefits heavily from stat boosters, as they will be doubled every turn due to its ability. Doubled Mint greatly benefits from boosts that give it more health, meaning it will be more difficult to dispose of. Defensive plants such as Sweet Potato can help as they give Doubled Mint more time to grow.
However, if the player can guard it well, this can be used as an early cheap plant, and lead to an early win. Using the Root Wall superpower trick (only achievable with Grass Knuckles) is a good idea to guard it from zombie tricks or fighters. Using this early game is the best strategy, as it will apply major pressure to the zombie hero. However, beware of instant kill tricks like Rocket Science, Locust Swarm, zombies with the Deadly trait, or Cut Down to Size, as they can defeat it in one use.
Try and dispose of this plant as quickly as possible, as letting it live will only make it stronger. It is strongly advised to destroy this plant on the turn it was planted, especially if it is used on the second turn. A single Bungee Plumber can destroy this when first placed. This card can be destroyed by Rolling Stone or Weed Spray until the second turn after it's played (provided it has not been boosted by plant tricks), so even if you've spent all of your brains on turn two, you can still destroy it on turn three. If its stats get out of hand, bouncing this plant is a good way to stall, as its stats will reset. Using Rocket Science, Cut Down to Size, Locust Swarm, or zombies with the Deadly trait is also a good idea, but beware of bonus attacks if you're using the fourth option.
The player can also reduce this plant's strength when it is newly planted to 0, making this useless for anything but walling at a cost of a space since the effect doubles stats, not add them up. However, beware of Fertilize or Grow-Shroom if you try this strategy, as it will have low strength but high enough health to let it grow. Cards such as Rustbolt's Shrink Ray can suffice in doing this.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Doubled Mint.
- Its card features a Doubled Mint in its final stage.
- However, the Doubled Mint will be shown at its first stage when its information is shown.
- Excluding signature superpowers, it is tied for the cheapest legendary card, along with Barrel of Deadbeards.
- Every time its ability activates, its leaves open in an order.
- If it doubles its stats over 2,147,483,647, the stat will change to 0. If this happens with its strength, it will still attack, and if this happens with its health, it will not be destroyed even though the health reads 0.
- This is due to an integer overflow.
- If it has 0 strength, it will still have 0 strength the next turn, as 0*2=0.
- Damage done to Doubled Mint is not doubled at the start of the next turn. For example, if a newly-played Doubled Mint took 1 damage this turn (at the end of turn it would have 1/1), next turn it would have 2/2. If the player heals it, its health can only reach 3.
- Its name and ability could be a reference, as the fact that mint is known for rapid growth and even overgrowing gardens when left untended.
