Sage Sage is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Solar class. He costs 2 to play, and has 2/1. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives the plant hero a card if 6 or more sun has been made on the turn he is played. His closest zombie counterpart is Cell Phone Zombie.
His name and appearance are both puns on two meanings of "sage," a person who has attained the wisdom which a philosopher seeks, and a perennial, evergreen subshrub with medicinal and culinary uses.

Sage Sage is mostly like a Cell Phone Zombie whose ability can only be activated in the late-game. While Sage Sage has slightly better stats compared to Cell Phone Zombie, his situational ability makes Sage Sage inferior until 6 is made. An alternative to Sage Sage is Morning Glory, as both have abilities that activate when 6 is made, but Morning Glory is relatively better due to her stats.
However, despite the cons, Sage Sage still has his uses due to the Solar class's lack of card draw, which is crucial if you want to use Dino-Roar cards, unless you are playing as Chompzilla, who has much better card draw options than Sage Sage. If you want to use this, though, it is advised that you focus on creating lots of sun early on to activate his ability sooner.
It is not recommended to play Sage Sage while Quickdraw Con Man is on the field, as you will take unblockable damage from drawing a card.
Because he is used for his ability and not his stats, it should not be that much of a threat. Sage Sage's ability encourages your opponent to play him much later in the game, when plants with stats these low have nowhere to stand. However, if Sage Sage is played in the early-game, be careful since Sage Sage can still take your zombies down. Use weaker zombies to destroy him, as he only has 1 health. Total Eclipse keeps your zombies safe from him, as your opponent will never play him there. You can also play Quickdraw Con Man to discourage your opponent from playing this plant.
- He is the only plant in the series to be based on a sage.
- He is one of the three plants in the game whose ability activates if the plant hero makes at least 6, the others being Morning Glory and Apple-Saucer.
