Rescue Radish is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Smarty class. He costs 3 to play, and has 3/4. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives the Bounce effect to a plant on the field, excluding him, when he is played. His zombie counterpart is Firefighter.
His name is a combination of the words "rescue," referring to his ability, and "radish," the real-life plant this is based on.
His card description makes a pun on "rad," an old slang word from around the 80s or 90s, meaning "cool" or "wonderful," referring to how it can be heard in "radish."
- Class: Smarty
- Tribe: Root Plant
- Traits: None
- Ability: When played: Bounce another Plant.
- Set - Rarity: Premium - Uncommon
He puts the rad in radish.
Rescue Radish, like his name states, can be played to save a valuable plant from destruction by bouncing it back into your hand. He can also be used to Bounce a plant with a "When played" ability so that the player can re-activate its ability, such as Kernel Corn.
However, take note that you are forced to Bounce another plant when you play Rescue Radish. Keep this in mind when you play him, as you could be forced to Bounce a plant with boosted stats, resetting them in the process, or bounce a plant that was defending against a dangerous zombie, allowing that zombie to hit you very hard, or set up for a turn for free.
Rescue Radish can be difficult to destroy early on as he has above average stats. His ability can also foil your plans and help your opponent, making Rescue Radish both dangerous and annoying. A cheap zombie that has high strength such as Cuckoo Zombie or Tennis Champ can easily destroy Rescue Radish. However, both zombies are destroyed after they destroy Rescue Radish unless they hit him with a bonus attack.
