Grass Knuckles is a plant hero in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and the leader of the Mega-Grow and Guardian classes. His signature superpower is Power Pummel, which does 2 damage on all ground lanes. If there is no zombie on a ground lane, the zombie hero takes damage there instead.
He is the hero version of Bonk Choy.
His name is a portmanteau of "grass," a name that refers to many species of plants in the family Poaceae, and "brass knuckles," weapons that fit around the knuckles and are used in hand-to-hand combat.

He's the best at what he does... and what he does is punching!
Grass Knuckles starts with "Bullseye" Plants that ignore enemy Super-Blocks. Then he grows them larger with powerful Mega-Grow effects - a nasty one-two punch!
Grass Knuckles can use Mega-Grow tricks such as Fertilize to boost up what are usually non-attacking plants such as Wall-Nuts to make them able to attack the zombies, or use Team-Up plants to protect the boosted plants against Deadly zombies. His signature superpower, Power Pummel, is useful to take down weak zombies on the ground lanes or to deal up to 6 damage to the zombie hero (though in some missions, the amount of damage changes depending on how many ground lanes there are). Additionally, if one would put a dangerous plant such as Doubled Mint behind a high health plant like Water Chestnut, it will be very difficult to take this hero out. Another good strategy to use with Grass Knuckles is boosting plants with Bullseye such as Sting Bean, Cactus and Jugger-Nut, and then having them do bonus attacks by using Time to Shine or Plant Food to be able to deal large amounts of damage to the zombie hero without charging their Super-Block Meter.
Always be one step ahead of Grass Knuckles, as he is able to easily boost his plants. If he uses Power Pummel, make sure that you have a zombie in each ground lane, especially in The Foe with the Furious Fists, or your hero will take a lot of damage. If Grass Knuckles puts down plants like Black-Eyed Pea or Doubled Mint, use tricks like Locust Swarm or Super Stench in order to destroy them before they become too much of a problem.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Grass Knuckles.
- He could be based on the concept of Grass Knuckles from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
- The punching bag that appears on the comic strip after the player receives Grass Knuckles has the face of the balloon that the Balloon Zombie uses.
- This face also appears on various objects in the game like Rolling Stone.
- He shares his battle music with Wall-Knight.
- In the first comic strip the player receives, it shows that a Peashooter and three other plants get turned into heroes at the same time, as one of them is Grass Knuckles.
- However, Grass Knuckles has his own "Introducing" comic strip, in a different manner than how he was transformed.
- Some of his idling and worrying animation is based off the drawings of it in Chinese Plants vs. Zombies Comics.
- In the comic strip where the player receives Grass Knuckles, he is shown to be in the same Bonk Choy Boxing place in one of the extra comics.
- His signature superpower, Power Pummel, resembles his counterpart's Plant Food animation in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
