"I'm starchy and explosive!"
Potato Mine is fairly similar to Bungee Plumber in that both can be used to snipe low health units. Potato Mine is also useful for absorbing a single hit for allied plants and protect them from powerful zombies, but keep in mind that this will not work against zombies with the Frenzy trait, unless the zombie has less than 2 before being destroyed. Spineapple can also be used to give Potato Mine a strength boost, allowing it to destroy a zombie with 4 or less on its own. Potato Mine can also be useful to protect a lane against a Gravestone because it'll block any gravestone zombies' attacks and even destroy any zombie with 2 or less.
When the plant hero places this plant on a lane with a zombie, use Sumo Wrestler, Terrify or Rodeo Gargantuar to move it away. However, keep in mind that doing a bonus attack will not help at all, as it will just trigger the Potato Mine's ability sooner. But just like with Prickly Pear, this plant's ability can only deal damage to the zombie fighters, not the zombie hero, so destroying it when there are no zombies on its lane is a good idea; Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, The Chickening or Conga Zombie are good options for doing this. Armored zombies, especially the Knight of the Living Dead, are also a good choice. If a Potato Mine is placed in front of another plant, the best way of dealing with it is by using shielded zombies such as Trash Can Zombie or Zombie Coach, as they will destroy the Potato Mine without taking any damage from it or the plant behind it.
- Every time the light on top of the Potato Mine flashes, a timer-like sound will be heard.
- When it explodes, it says "SPUD-OW!" instead of "SPUDOW!" as it does in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2.
