|You could say Hurrikale is a "blow hard" in the truest sense of the phrase. He is the first chair trombonist in the Biennial Philharmonic Orchestra. He is also proficient in the trumpet, saxophone and the tuba. But man o' man, you should really see him on the flugelhorn. Dude absolutely kills it.|
Hurrikale chills and pushes all zombies in its lane back up to approximately 5 tiles, but cannot push them off the lawn. Similarly to Blover, Hurrikale can also blow away all airborne enemies, albeit only in the lane it is placed on. Hurrikale's winds can also cause two Dandelions in its lane to release multiple bombs at once, but the Dandelions will be disabled for 10 seconds afterward.
Hurrikale's name is a portmanteau of "hurricane," a strong tropical cyclone often seen as a natural disaster, and "kale," a vegetable of the Brassica oleracea species. Hurrikale's ability is inspired from hurricanes, as it uses the power of a strong and cold wind to push back zombies and chill them for a short time.

Hurrikale allows the player to fend off the incoming threats and buy time by pushing zombies back and slowing them down. As Hurrikale's effect is not diminished by the amount or strength of the zombies, Hurrikale can prove to be valuable in higher levels of the Endless Zones when large amounts of high health zombies such as Gargantuar will appear, especially in conjunction with chokepoints in Frostbite Caves or generated by Sweet Potato and Garlic.
When using Hurrikale in conjunction with fire-based plants, be aware that fire attacks will thaw pushed zombies, but not affect Hurrikale's pushing capability. While the pushing aspect is usually more important than the chilling aspect, fire plants can still be detrimental to Hurrikale's effectiveness, as they will reduce the time for the zombies to return to their original position after being pushed. Hurrikale will also extinguish Explorer Zombie's torch.
Hurrikale can also be used as an emergency weapon against airborne zombies in its lane (including zombies launched by Chard Guard and Power Toss), although Blover is more suitable for the job as it can affect the entire screen. Hurrikale can also be used in conjunction with Dandelions to cause two in a lane to release several bombs at once. However, be aware that this leaves the Dandelions open to threats as they must recharge afterwards.
Hurrikale is also useful in Jurassic Marsh levels in order to counter the dinosaurs' interactions with the zombies. It can be used either to slow down and push back zombies that were affected by T. Rex, or by simply pushing back zombies that were affected by any other dinosaur.
