Card description

Newspapers are an undead medium.



Consider this as the zombie equivalent of Hibernating Beary. However, while Hibernating Beary is harmless when unprovoked, Newspaper Zombie can still fight in the same situation. Since this has less health than Hibernating Beary, you should not expose it to attacks that severely damage, or destroy this zombie. Instead, using this on weak plants should do the trick. Tricks that boost its health will help it, as it can get more strength. You can intentionally boost this as well by using either Fireworks Zombie or Barrel of Deadbeards, at the cost of 1HeartPvZH. Lurch for Lunch or any other bonus attack method works very well on Newspaper Zombie, especially with high strength.


As for plants, use Whack-a-Zombie before it gets any boosts. If it gets too out of control, use Squash, Doom-Shroom, or Lawnmower. Using a plant that has at least 2HeartPvZH and does at least 2StrengthPvZH is also a choice, but you'll lose that plant unless it has 4StrengthPvZH or more.




  • Its ability is a reference to its ability in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2, where it speeds up after its newspaper is destroyed by attacks. As there is no speed in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, it gains strength after taking damage instead.
