"I'm more than just a jumper... I can also leap and vault!"
Jumping Bean has poor stats for a 5 plant. However, its special ability is what makes it useful. With it, the player can remove a zombie from the field so that Anti-Hero plants can attack the zombie hero. The player can also use it to bounce a buffed zombie into the zombie hero's hand, returning its stats to normal. Although, this plant does cost a lot, so keep in mind remaining sun after using this.
Against Jumping Bean, there is not much that can be done. If all brains have been used placing Zombies, Jumping Bean will take effect with no consequence. However, with extra brains for tricks, this plant can be handled. Bungee Plumber will immediately destroy it, along with The Chickening. Using Teleport on the zombie that was bounced can also reverse the ability of Jumping Bean. Although, that zombie's stats will be reset. Placing zombies such as Electrician and Gadget Scientist can also be helpful, as the plant hero will have to second guess using Jumping Bean, as that zombie's effect can be done again. Do not bounce Jumping Bean, as it can bounce another zombie again. Additionally, beware buffing one singular zombie, as Jumping Bean will have an obvious target, as well as wasting the time it took buffing said zombie.
- Its appearance references how the real-life jumping bean jumps, as Jumping Bean is wearing an outfit which resembles that of real-life Olympic long jumpers and high jumpers.
