Strategies

With

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 him to attacks that severely damage, or destroy this zombie. Instead, using this on weak plants should do the trick. Tricks that boost his health such as Camel Crossing will help him, as he can get more strength. Zombie Yeti is a good idea because if used correctly, could keep Newspaper Zombie alive for many turns.

You can also 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. Consider using this against Shroom for Two, as Newspaper Zombie will be boosted twice, and with some tricks can easily win a match early. However, Buff-Shroom can ruin this tactic. As Impfinity, Headstone Carver can boost Newspaper Zombie, letting him survive the previously mentioned scenario. In addition, Impfinity can also move him around with Smoke Bomb.

Against

As for plants, use Whack-a-Zombie before he gets any boosts. If he gets too out of control, use Squash, Doom-Shroom, or other instant-kill cards. 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. Do not use Sour Grapes against this unless he has 1 health left, as it will only increase Newspaper Zombie's strength. In addition, the zombie hero can use a trick to get more damage on the plant hero afterwards. Bouncing him is also a good option if his strength gets too high.

Trivia

  • His ability is a reference to his ability in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2, where he speeds up after his newspaper is destroyed by attacks. As there is no speed in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, it gains strength after taking damage instead.
  • In the game, Newspaper Zombie is wearing a gray shirt instead of the white shirt he wears in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • This and Foot Soldier Zombie are the only professional cards in the Crazy class.
  • In a recent update, Newspaper Zombie's animations were changed. Now, his head is slightly lowered to be behind the newspaper. In addition, when hit for the first time, his newspaper will be destroyed, and he has an animation of him having his newspaper shredded.
    • However, if Mixed-Up Gravedigger, In-Crypted or any card that gives the Bounce effect is played after Newspaper Zombie has taken damage, Newspaper Zombie will appear without his newspaper when he is revealed.
