Galvanize is a super-rare zombie superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Beastly IconBeastly class. It costs 1Brain to play, and its ability gives a selected zombie +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH. Its plant counterpart is Embiggen.


Its name is derived from the word galvanize. To "galvanize," or more specifically, Galvanization, is a process where a protective coat of zinc is applied to iron or steel to prevent rusting. This is a reference to Galvanize's ability to give zombies extra strength and health. Alternatively, the word "galvanize" can also mean to motivate someone to take action via shock or excitement (which could explain its card description).


  • Class: Beastly
  • Tribe: Superpower Trick
  • Ability: A Zombie gets +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH.
  • Rarity: Super-Rare

Card description

To protect and serve... brains.

Update History

Update 1.2.12



There are multiple ways one can use this trick. It can be used to turn a harmless zombie like a Skunk Punk into a moderate threat, it could also be used to ensure the survival of a useful zombie, like Zookeeper, or finally it can be used to turn a big threat like Smashing Gargantuar into an even bigger threat.


You can bounce the zombie to return its status back to normal, neutralizing the trick.




  • This can be considered the opposite of Weed Whack, since Weed Whack gives a zombie -2StrengthPvZH/-2HeartPvZH, while Galvanize gives a zombie +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH.
