Punish-Shroom is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. It costs 3SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability does 2 damage to a random zombie or the zombie hero every time a mushroom plant, including it, is destroyed.

Origins

It is based on the Hydnellum peckii, otherwise known as the bleeding tooth fungus.

Its name is a combination of "punish" and the hyphenated "mushroom." It may also be a pun on the word "punisher."

Strategies

With

Use this as soon as possible if you're playing many mushrooms. Using More Spore also helps to get up some Button Mushrooms which can be destroyed easily, which in turn activates the ability of Punish-Shroom. This is crucial in a mushroom deck as it will be devastating if played while many other mushrooms are on the field. It will cause a severe reaction if the zombie hero plays something like The Chickening to destroy all the mushrooms.

Additionally, if you're playing as Spudow, you can use Doom-Shroom to destroy mushrooms that have been boosted by Berry Angry or Buff-Shroom and deliberately activate Punish-Shroom's ability. However, it is not recommended to perform this action in early-game or when your opponent has a lot of cards, as your opponent may take their advantage to overwhelm you in the late-game. To be able to fully utilize this ability, it is best to play it on the rightmost lane, since in the "Fight!" phase, combat happens from left to right.

Against

This should be destroyed as early as possible individually. When you are going to use The Chickening or something that uses mass damage to destroy all the mushrooms on the field, it is best to destroy this first with a single use of Bungee Plumber or Rolling Stone first to minimize its impact. Try not to use Weed Spray or The Chickening if there are a bunch of mushrooms on the lawn while Punish-Shroom is in play unless it can guarantee victory, because it can activate its ability before it gets destroyed, and without other zombies to block some of its damage (as the zombie is not destroyed until this effect has ended), it can heavily damage your hero.

Alternatively, if you don't have tricks to destroy it, you can use PvZH Armored IconArmored or Shielded zombies such as Trash Can Zombie to block some of Punish-Shroom's damage. If Punish-Shroom's ability attempts to hurt these zombies, all or most of the damage will be negated, wasting the ability. Tricks such as Camel Crossing can also give a better chance of survival to zombies without the aforementioned traits. Due to the randomness of Punish-Shroom's ability, a viable option is playing many weak targets such as Haunting Zombie to absorb the damage instead of the zombie hero or other important zombies such as Toxic Waste Imp.

Trivia

  • Its description is a reference to the phrase, "Revenge is best served cold."
    • Its description also references how lines narrated by Katniss Everdeen end with the word "Period" in the Hunger Games novels.
  • Previously, when Doom-Shroom or More Spore was played, Punish-Shroom also activated its ability. Because tricks are one-time use cards, a mushroom trick being played counted as a "destroyed" mushroom. However, this glitch has since been fixed.
    • However, if Mushroom Grotto is replaced with another environment, it will activate Punish Shroom's ability.
  • It does not have an animation when it gets destroyed.
  • It is one of the two plant cards whose eyes are not visible. The other is Sergeant Strongberry.
    • Coincidentally, both are in the Kabloom class, are super-rare, and have abilities that do 2 damage to their target.
