Poppin' Poppies can be used as a defensive plant, especially against high damaging zombies, since they will expedite a lot of damage. The player can use this very aggressively with Spudow since you can use this with Berry Angry and get a lot of damage (8 more) or use this with Storm Front to boost this plant and the Lil' Buddies' stats. Playing Spineapple after this plant is a good idea to make the Lil' Buddies stronger. Note that if you are Spudow, you must plant Spineapple before using Berry Angry, because if you use Berry Angry first, Spineapple will not strengthen the Lil' Buddies.
Playing Steel Magnolia in the next door or previous door is good to make Lil' Buddies more defensive. Using Rescue Radish with Citron to make more Lil' Buddies or gaining them can also be a good idea. If you are playing as Wall-Knight, playing Briar Rose with this plant spells doom for all zombies in the same lanes as Lil' Buddies. Pairing this with a Power Flower when the lanes are empty of zombies can heal the hero for a maximum of 10 health, which is half of their max health. Even if some Lil' Buddies are killed, there can still be lots of healing.
It is recommended to use zombies with Frenzy or Strikethrough, especially Vimpire, since it will get increased strength and health from defeating the Lil' Buddies. However, Vimpire will need at least 5 Health, and that is when Poppin' Poppies's Strength is not boosted. Hot Dog Imp paired with a Toxic Waste Imp works well, as it will destroy all plants in the entire lane, killing both Poppin' Poppies and the Lil' Buddy in front of it, although the Hot Dog Imp will be destroyed. You can also use The Chickening, to destroy all Lil' Buddies and leave Poppin' Poppies at 2 health, which allows a simple zombie with 2 strength to destroy it. Zombot Stomp can be used if it causes too much trouble since the Lil' Buddies will return to your opponents hand.
Do not bounce Poppin Poppies unless it is causing major trouble, as it will allow the opponent to summon even more Lil' Buddies, making it difficult for the player to break through and damage the opposing Plant Hero.
Using Zombot Sharktronic Sub is a good tactic because Lil' Buddies are weak and it is easy to destroy them and boost this zombie's stats. Rocket Science can take out Poppin' Poppies itself with ease. This should be used especially if the Plant Hero decides to buff it. Additionally, Locust Swarm can be used.
