Hothead is a token plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom and PvZH Guardian IconGuardian classes. He is made by Tater Toss, Spudow's signature superpower, but can also be made by Cornucopia's ability, or transformed by Seedling or Petal-Morphosis' ability. He costs 3SunPvZH to play (only when he is Bounced), and has 1HeartPvZH. He has the Team-Up trait, and his ability does 6 damage to a zombie on his lane when he is destroyed.

Origins

His name comes from the word "hothead," a person who gets angry easily. It may also be a pun, as Hothead is, in fact, Spudow's head.

Update history

  • Name change: Hot Potato → Hothead

Strategies

With

Apply the same strategies as you would for Potato Mine. However, since this does 6 damage opposed to 2, it is recommended to save this to defeat a tough zombie like Shieldcrusher Viking, Drum Major, Smashing Gargantuar, etc. He can also immediately counter Trickster, especially if the zombie hero spent all their brains. Be careful of Teleport if they are using Trickster, though. Also, because he has the Team-Up trait, you can protect a plant with this and apply some pressure to the opponent. However, be wary that this will not defeat some zombies such as Wizard Gargantuar or Knight of the Living Dead without support.

Unless you need to block the lane for a turn, do not use this against shielded zombies, as they will not get harmed and will waste Hothead. Alongside, unless you are about to block or the lane right to it is occupied, do not use this against Space Cowboy as it will move before activating Hothead's ability, wasting him as well.

Against

Against this, there is very little to counter him. If he is played near a really important zombie, the best option is to Bounce this to save some time. In this case, the hero would have to spend 3 sun in order to replant him. It is not recommended to use damaging tricks as he will also still activate his effect. Another option is moving zombies to other lanes, so they will not be hurt from this. At this point, you could also use a damaging trick to waste his ability in the process. You can also use Escape through Time to avoid damage to that zombie.

Trivia

  • Hothead and Explode-o-nut are the only plants that share the appearance of another plant, but are tinted red instead of their regular coloration.
  • In some missions, Spudow can play him as if he was a normal plant.
  • Prior to update 1.4.14, Hothead was called "Hot Potato."
    • Unlike the Hot Potato in Plants vs. Zombies 2, this plant's appearance and function are similar to the Potato Mine. However, part on his entry where it says he stays even peeled is based on the Hot Potato in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • Hothead, Zom-Bats, Impfinity Clone and Octo-Pet are currently the only cards that are in two classes.
    • However, before update 1.2.12, Goat used to be in two classes as well, albeit it was in plant classes.
    • Out of these four, it is the only one from the plants side.
