Navy Bean is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It has the Amphibious and Team-Up traits, and its ability gives all Amphibious plants, including it, +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH when it is played.


It is based on a bean, a common name for large seeds of several genera of the flowering plant family Fabaceae, and the naval infantry, an infantry force that specializes in the support of naval and army operations at sea and on land.

Its name is a combination of "navy", referring to its Team-Up and Amphibious traits, and "bean", the real-life plant this is based on.


  • Class: Smarty
  • Tribe: Bean Plant
  • Traits: Amphibious, Team-Up
  • Ability: When played: All Amphibious Plants get +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH.

While Navy Bean's stats are not the best, its Amphibious and Team-Up traits make up for it, along with its useful ability. It can be useful to hit the zombie hero or any Amphibious zombies, or act like an offensive Wall-Nut. Citron can use Navy Bean the most effectively, since he has access to the most Amphibious plants out of any hero due to him also leading the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class (the only other class that has plants with this trait aside from Smarty), giving him access to plants such as Sting Bean, Sea-Shroom, Water Chestnut, Guacodile, and Smackadamia.

As for other Smarty heroes, try to have as many Amphibious plants out at once, as Navy Bean will be able to boost them all and possibly wreak havoc. Keep in mind that they do not even need to be played on aquatic lanes to be boosted. The only downside is that many Amphibious plants do not have amazing stats, but that is a relatively minor downside.

Navy Bean can synergize well with Potted Powerhouse as Navy Bean is able to boost multiple plants at once. Since Potted Powerhouse's ability activates per boosted plant, it can gain a massive stat boost if you have enough Amphibious plants on the field at once. However, this can only be done normally with Green Shadow.

As it is a bean plant, Navy Bean can also activate the abilities of Admiral Navy Bean and Bean Counter, making them do 2 damage to your opponent and boosting Bean Counter.


Do not be deceived by Navy Bean's base stats, as it gives itself a boost as well. This makes Navy Bean and some other Amphibious plants immune to instant-kill tricks limited to strength, such as Rocket Science and Rolling Stone, with Slammin' Smackdown as an exception. Even if you destroy Navy Bean, there are still the boosted Amphibious plants to deal with. The Chickening helps a little, but out of all the plants that get boosted by Navy Bean, the only plants that are destroyed are Admiral Navy Bean and Spyris. Taking them out systematically and orderly is the best option. PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies can easily destroy any of the plants, but the zombie itself is most likely going to be destroyed.




  • Its description mentions that it was *this* close to becoming an Army Bean. This may be a reference to the Newspaper Zombie's Suburban Almanac or Almanac entry from Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2, as it states that Newspaper Zombie was "*this* close" to finishing his Sudoku or crossword puzzle.
  • It has higher stats than Admiral Navy Bean, although its name may make some people think vice versa.
  • It, Sunflower, Pea-Nut and Pear Pal are the only plants with the Team-Up trait present in the Multiplayer menu.
  • When one receives Navy Bean from a Premium Pack, its head is a bit bigger than what they see in its card. This is probably an oversight.
