Card description

What he lacks in a sense of humor, he makes up with attitude... and dual Cob Busters.

  • Strength change: 5StrengthPvZH → 6StrengthPvZH
  • Health change: 5HeartPvZH → 6HeartPvZH



Doing 4 damage to every single zombie on the field, Kernel Corn is a complete superior to Sour Grapes, and Cherry Bomb as well if there is an empty lane to play him.

When your opponent attempts to swarm you with zombies, play Kernel Corn to wipe out or severely damage your opponent's zombies for himself and your other plants to finish off the weakened ones and hit your opponent.

If you are playing as Nightcap, you can play Rescue Radish to Bounce Kernel Corn and let you replay him later on. If you are playing as Solar Flare, you can play this earlier by making excess sun.

However, despite him already having good raw stats, Kernel Corn is not as good at handling single threats on his own, so he becomes less effective if your opponent focuses on investing on a single zombie. He also has a hard time when your opponent fills the field with tougher zombies, such as Valkyrie, so you should be careful on when you should play him.

You should also watch out for instant-kill tricks like Locust Swarm, Cut Down to Size, or Rocket Science, as well as PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies.

The two environments that suit Kernel Corn well are Pair Pearadise or Venus Flytraplanet. Pair Pearadise makes another Kernel Corn, effectively making its ability do double damage, while playing him in a Venus Flytraplanet will heal you for 0-20 health, depending on the number of zombies on the field. However, the Venus Flytraplanet combo is only possible as Solar Flare.


Kernel Corn is a very dangerous plant, as he can demolish your defenses and your hero alike. Try playing instant-kill tricks such as Locust Swarm, Cut Down to Size, or Rocket Science, or PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies to get rid of this plant.

If his ability is what you fear the most, having either high-health or PvZH Armored IconArmored zombies on the field lessens the harm. If you want your zombies to be unaffected by his ability, you can play Gravestone zombies or Mixed-Up Gravedigger, or sneak some in with Teleport.

It is strongly recommended not to Bounce this plant because your opponent can replay him again, possibly wreaking havoc once again on your already-weakened defenses, unless you need to stall for one more turn.
