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.


Onion Rings is based on the plant Allium cepa, also known as the onion (specifically the red onion).

Onion Rings' design also has rings around it, which is similar to a planet with rings such as Saturn, hence its name.

Its name is also based on onion rings, which are a snack that consists of cross-sectional "rings" of onion covered in batter, which are then deep-fried.

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.

Update history

Update 1.16.10

  • Added to the game.



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, and Punish-Shrooms. Once he has lots of these cards, he can put Onion Rings into play and watch their stats grow higher than usual.

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

Onion Rings also has great synergy with Bean Counter, which can be played on 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 use this.

Though its ability is useful, take note that this plant is very situational and can even put you at a huge disadvantage as the game progresses. Take Soul Patch as Grass Knuckles, for example. Onion Rings tones down its strength by 1 and tremendously decreases its health by 6, which also reduces the effectiveness of its ability. Therefore, such cards are best played before Onion Rings is played unless it is absolutely needed to play Onion Rings. However, Grapes of Wrath may or may not be beneficial with this as while it will have less health and strength, it can activate his ability more easier.

The following cards don't synchronize well with Onion Rings as it will weaken stats only: Gravitree, Pecanolith, Soul Patch, Poison Oak, Kernel Corn, Whipvine, Potted Powerhouse if boosted, Smoosh-Shroom, Winter Melon, Dark Matter Dragonfruit, The Great Zucchini, Laser Bean, Smashing Pumpkin, Astro Vera, Three-Headed Chomper, and Cornucopia.

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


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.



  • It was originally an onion plant when it was first introduced and not a root plant.
    • Garlic was also changed from an onion plant to a root plant as well.
    • Both were probably changed to give Starch-Lord's ability more variety.
