Onion Rings is a galactic legendary plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. It costs 5SunPvZH to play, and has 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability changes the stats of all plant fighters in the plant hero's hand to 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH when it is played.

Origins

It is based on an onion (Allium cepa), specifically the red onion; and a planet with rings, for example, Saturn.

Its name is a literal pun on "onion rings," a snack that consists of cross-sectional "rings" of onion covered in batter which are then deep-fried. However, Onion Rings has raw onion rings orbiting around it instead.

Its description is a reference to how onions in real life cause eye irritation and uncontrollable tears when cut normally due to a chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide.

Strategies

With

Onion Rings may seem to have lower stats than usual for 5 sun, but its ability could change the tides of the battle, turning every plant card's stats into 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH while still keeping their sun costs, which can make them very cost-effective. Keep in mind that this ability only affects plant cards that are currently in your hand. So to improve this ability well, bring certain cards like Flourish to draw more cards as the more plant cards you have in your hand, the more plants you can turn into 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH.

This also means that it benefits low-stat cards. For example, Captain Combustible can use it with a mushroom deck consisting of Shrooms for Two, Buff-Shrooms, Mushroom Ringleaders, Punish-Shrooms, and Astro-Shrooms. Once he has lots of these cards, he can put Onion Rings into play and give them a head start. However, Onion Rings will not affect plants made or transformed by other plants or tricks, so keep that in mind.

Onion Rings can also benefit glass cannons like Magnifying Grass and Mushroom Ringleader as you can turn them from 1HeartPvZH into 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH on top of the extra strength boost they get.

Onion Rings also has great synergy with Bean Counter, which can be played on the curve, and also draws you two Weenie Beanies, which can increase to a stat of 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH each of the Weenie Beanies. However, only Green Shadow can normally perform this combo.

Stat changes from Onion Rings' ability persist for the rest of the game, even if the affected plant is Bounced.

Though its ability is useful, take note that this plant limits your choices on other plants due to it actually lowering the stats of the more offensively powerful cards. Any cards whose strength and health are both over 4 are better off not to be used with Onion Rings, the only exception being Grapes of Wrath, who will be able to activate its ability easier. Another exceptional example of a plant that goes badly with it is Reincarnation, as you will have to play it that turn or the stat boost will be lost. As for plants with one stat below 4 but the other over 4 such as Threepeater, they are able to synergize with it nicely as long as the loss isn't too great.

You should also beware of Rocket Science and Cakesplosion, as all your plants will be vulnerable to it. Fortunately, you can give them UntrickableAltBigUntrickable via Umbrella Leaf.

Against

There is no way to stop this card, but the only solution to avoid a lot of plants from turning 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH is to lure your opponent into playing a lot of cards. Try swarming the field or playing glass cannons to make the plant hero think twice between taking a lot of damage and wasting cards. Avoid Bouncing this card because the plant hero is going to play it again and gain benefits of it, unless for lethal damage. Be careful about playing cards that give your opponent cards as well such as Regifting Zombie, Wormhole Gatekeeper, or Unexpected Gifts, as Onion Rings can boost more of your opponent's plants to 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH.

You can also take advantage of its ability. As every plant affected by Onion Rings is vulnerable to Rocket Science and Cakesplosion, Professor Brainstorm is a good counter to it.
