"I'm more than just a jumper... I can also leap and vault!"

Jumping Bean is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 5SunPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It has no traits, and its ability gives the Bounce effect to a selected zombie when it is played. Its zombie counterpart is Pogo Bouncer.


It is based on a Mexican jumping bean, a seed pod that is known to jump around due to the small larva of a moth located inside the seed pod, and a long jump or high jump athlete, a person who competes in said sport.

Its name and appearance are both puns on the aforementioned plant, as Jumping Bean is wearing a long jump/high jump athlete's suit.


  • Class: Smarty
  • Tribe: Bean Plant
  • Traits: None
  • Ability: When played: Bounce a Zombie.
  • Set - Rarity: Premium - Rare

Card description

"I'm more than just a jumper... I can also leap and vault!"

Update history

Update 1.2.11

  • Rarity change: Uncommon → Rare



Jumping Bean has poor stats for a 5-sun plant. However, its ability is what makes it useful. With it, the player can remove a zombie from the field to clear a path for PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero or PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye plants to strike your opponent. You can also use it to bounce a buffed zombie into your opponent's hand, returning its stats to normal and wasting all the given boosts. However, do mind that this plant is quite expensive, so you should keep track on your sun and defenses. You can also play it with Rescue Radish to reactivate its ability.


Against Jumping Bean, there is not much that can be done about its ability. However, after its ability activates, this plant can be handled quite easily, as its stats are pretty low. Bungee Plumber can immediately destroy it, along with The Chickening. You can also replay the bounced zombie by playing Teleport.

Playing zombies with "When played" abilities like Electrician, Gadget Scientist, Zombot 1000, or Zombot Plank Walker makes your opponent think twice before they actually play Jumping Bean, as that zombie can be played again, activating its ability once more. It is highly not recommended to Bounce Jumping Bean, as it can activate its ability again. Additionally, it is very unwise to focus all your boosts on one singular zombie, as that zombie becomes an obvious target for Jumping Bean, wasting all your boosting cards. Take note that Zombot Sharktronic Sub is very prone to Jumping Bean as it is able to reset all its strength boost.
