Grapes of Wrath is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Kabloom class. It costs 7 to play, and has 6/6. It does not have any traits, and its ability does 6 damage to the zombie hero when it is destroyed. Its closest zombie counterpart is Gas Giant.
Its name is a reference to the book of the same name, The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck.
Its description may be a reference to a quote made by the Joker. The quote goes: "Why so serious?"
- Class: Kabloom
- Tribe: Berry Plant
- Traits: None
- Ability: When destroyed: Do 6 damage to the Zombie Hero.
- Set - Rarity: Premium - Super-Rare
"Everyone's always asking, 'Why so angry?' Because ZOMBIES! Sheesh. Obviously."
- Design change: Its eyes and mouths have been changed, now looking more human.
Once the player puts this plant into play, the opposing hero will have to think carefully how to remove it. If left unharmed, it will do 6 damage continuously. If eventually destroyed, it will still do 6 damage as well, but to the zombie hero. Due to this, Grapes of Wrath can get you an easy win in most circumstances. It can also force the opponent to wait before using Zombot 1000 or anything that would instantly destroy it because it would potentially defeat the zombie hero when it is destroyed. Anyway, this plant can be useful if you want to easily destroy a high-health zombie, strong or weak.
Try not to damage the zombie hero while you are having Grapes of Wrath on the lawn, because this plant's damage can be blocked if the zombie hero's Super-Block Meter is almost full. Try to make the zombies destroy this if the zombie hero has more than 3 sections left to block in their Super-Block Meter counter. Boosting Grapes of Wrath with cards such as Berry Angry can apply even more pressure towards the zombie hero. If you are playing as Captain Combustible, you can use Fertilize or Plant Food to boost Grapes of Wrath, but remember that even if you were to boost this plant, it would still only do 6 damage to the zombie hero when destroyed.
If you want to activate its ability quicker as Captain Combustible, you can use Onion Rings to "weaken" its stats to 4 health. However, only use this if you want to only use it for its ability, otherwise it will become a weaker plant. Another way to do it is to play Tactical Cuke (as Solar Flare) or Doom-Shroom (as Spudow). However, while these two can destroy zombies, they can also destroy your other plants as well, so be careful.
Destroying this could possibly make things worse, so the player needs to be really careful when dealing with this plant. Walls such as Trash Can Zombie can stall this plant, and so does Brain Freeze's signature superpower. You can also nearly fill up the Super-Block Meter and then destroy the plant to block the 6 damage, allowing you to use a superpower to do some damage. As a last resort, Bounce this plant, so it will not do any harm for the turn being, though the plant hero may play this later on. Squirrel Herder can destroy Grapes of Wrath because it is in the berry tribe, but be careful, as Grapes of Wrath will do 6 damage to your hero when destroyed. You can play Stupid Cupid to make it unable to attack for one turn. You could also play Planetary Gladiator and then destroy this plant to avoid the 6 damage, at the cost of Planetary Gladiator himself. However, all damage can be completely negated by playing either a Zombie Coach with him or playing Escape through Time on him. Also, using Valkyrie when it has no strength works, since it won't attack Grapes of Wrath.
