Strategies

With

Rodeo Gargantuar is basically a Sumo Wrestler with increased stats and the added Gargantuar tribe. Use this zombie as you would do with a Sumo Wrestler. With a very high health stat, this can survive a strong attack or two. Use his ability to move a potential threat to Rodeo Gargantuar's lane to destroy it, or to move a plant away from his lane so that he can possibly finish off the plant hero. You can also use Zombie Coach to shield him, as well as Team Mascot to boost his stats, as he is also a sports zombie.

As The Smash or Neptuna, you can use Possessed on him, and Rodeo Gargantuar will now have PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy on top of even more health. If Possessed is not available, The Smash can instead combine this with Smashing Gargantuar. Since Rodeo Gargantuar comes out of a gravestone, Neptuna can also make him even more dangerous with Headstone Carver. As Rustbolt, you can pair him up with Wizard Gargantuar to move a plant out of the Wizard Gargantuar's lane to land 6 guaranteed damage on the plant hero, plus Rodeo Gargantuar himself will have PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye as well.

Against

Any instant-kill card like Grave BusterDoom-Shroom, Squash, and Lawnmower can destroy him easily. However, if those cards are not available, either lower his stats, or strategize and determine potential spots where your opponent will direct the plant. If there are three plants on the field, you can play a plant on Rodeo Gargantuar's lane and to force him to move it to an empty lane, which could easily turn the tables if the positioning is planned ahead and strategically used. However, be careful of plants that have the Team-Up trait, as they allow two plants to fit in one lane. Take him down quickly, because he could easily damage you for 5 (or even more if he is boosted).

If you notice that later in-game where a Hearty hero plays only one gravestone, there can be a chance that there is a Rodeo Gargantuar inside since he is really expensive. As mentioned above, you can use Grave Buster as this uses up 7 brains from the zombie hero, plus he is the only zombie that cost more brains than any other Gravestone zombies.
