When damaged, this zombie will bounce itself. This ability can help you take out many low damaging plants, as this zombie's health will be restored full every time you play it again. Due to its ability to be played multiple times, using this with Zookeeper would be a smart move. Use the Kangaroo Rider to go against weak plants, then let it bounce back to the deck, and at the start of the next turn, then play the Kangaroo Rider again. This will boost the Zookeeper's (and any other pet zombies) strength greatly. Be aware that it will not bounce itself again whenever it is destroyed.
As of update 1.2.11, the Kangaroo Rider's health stat has been lowered to 3, making it much easier to destroy without having to use plant teammates with high strength points. Bonk Choy is a great choice to counter Kangaroo Rider, as it is a 1 plant with 3 on its first turn.
Avoid using low damaging plants against this zombie, because if you do this, not only the plants will get destroyed easily, but the Kangaroo Rider will survive and bounce back to the opponent's deck, and then can be played again with the maximum health and strength. Instead, try to choose plants or tricks that have strength higher than 3 to get rid of this zombie as fast as you can.
- The reason the kangaroo wears boxing gloves is to comically represent the boxing kangaroos.
- The Imp does not ride the kangaroo on its back, instead, it is carried in the kangaroo's pouch.
- The kangaroo would then be a female since the male kangaroos do not have pouches.
- The kangaroo's right ear appears to have been partially bitten off.
