Pied Piper is a basic common zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Beastly IconBeastly class. He costs 2BrainPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability gives all plants on his lane -1StrengthPvZH/-1HeartPvZH when he is revealed.


His name, appearance and ability are all references to the fairy tale called The Pied Piper of Hamelin.

Update history

Update ????

  • Tribe order change: Pet Dancing → Dancing Pet



Pied Piper's ability to weaken, and possibly destroy a plant is what makes him handy. It is best to place him on a lane with a plant that has 1HeartPvZH, or 3HeartPvZH at most for Pied Piper to destroy it. Also, since the ability decreases stats and affects all plants in that lane, it can basically bypass Team-Up plants to destroy a frail plant behind, or PvZH Armored IconArmored plants since the trait does not prevent stat reduction. If there is a dangerous plant with 1HeartPvZH, such as Snapdragon, Magnifying Grass, Mushroom Ringleader, they can be easily destroyed when he is revealed.

If you manage to keep Pied Piper alive with Electric Boogaloo, he can be used in a dancing-based deck with Aerobics Instructor and Flamenco Zombie, since he is a dancing zombie. Pied Piper can also give boosts to Cat Lady and Zookeeper, since he is also a pet zombie.

However, Pied Piper's ability will not activate if there are no plants in his lane. Grave Buster is also a big counter to this zombie since you will most likely play him as soon as possible, which is very predictable, and the plant hero can simply ignore the gravestone.


There's not much you can do about this zombie early in the game, because he hides in a gravestone. However, Morning Glory, Pepper M.D., Black-Eyed Pea and a boosted Snowdrop can destroy him. In addition, Grave Buster can be used. This is extremely suggested if the plant hero is Spudow, and a gravestone appears in a lane with Shroom for Two in it, as a Beastly zombie hero would likely play this in that lane to destroy them.




  • The last word in his description, "whatevs" is an informal way to say the word whatever.
  • When he is revealed, he will play a short tune on his pipe. The same applies when reducing stats.
  • He, B-flat and Stayin' Alive are the only dancing cards in the Beastly class.
  • His name is an example of alliteration.
