Mystery Egg is a colossal uncommon zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Crazy class. It costs 1 to play, and has 2. It can also be made by Hippity Hop Gargantuar. It does not have any traits, and its ability transforms it into a random zombie that costs 2 or less at the start of the Zombie Tricks phase.
It was introduced in update 1.12.6, along with Hippity Hop Gargantuar.
It is based on an Easter egg, a decorated egg usually used around the time of Easter.
Its name is a combination of "mystery," referring to its random ability, and "egg," the object it is based on.
- Class: Crazy
- Tribe: Gourmet Zombie

Similar to Summoning, although it can give powerful zombies like Toxic Waste Imp or Barrel of Deadbeards, it may also give weak ones like Skunk Punk or ones that don't synergize with your deck such as Gargologist in a non-Gargantuar deck or Zookeeper in a non-pet deck.
But most of the time, this zombie is used to block an attack of a dangerous plant since unlike Swabbie, it cannot attack on its own. Its tribe also means it does not gain any benefit from cards like Zookeeper or Team Mascot. However, if you choose to ensure that this zombie stays alive, it can reward you by turning into a zombie that could aid you. You could play stat-boosting cards such as Yeti Lunchbox or Camel Crossing to boost its stats, but since the boosts will be gone once Mystery Egg transforms into another zombie, it is not recommended to do so unless either Mystery Egg needs to attack, or you have to rely on it.
As Professor Brainstorm, you can ramp up very easily with this and Medulla Nebula. When you play this in Medulla Nebula, you will earn2 extra brains and once Mystery Egg transforms, you will get another 3 brains, ramping up to 5 brains in a single turn. This allows you to play Gargantuar's Feast as early as turn 6.
Stat-wise, this is a weak zombie. However, do not play anything important on its lane, for you may end up facing a dangerous zombie. It is best to get rid of Mystery Egg before the Zombie Tricks phase. Play cards that can either hurt or destroy this zombie before reaching the Zombie Tricks phase, such as Whack-a-Zombie, Berry Blast, or Chomper.
You can also Bounce this zombie if you have no other way to prevent it from transforming.
- It, Valkyrie, Barrel of Deadbeards, Orchestra Conductor, and Cat Lady are the only zombies that start out with no base strength.
