For the version in Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Sap-fling.

Sap-Fling is an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. He costs 6SunPvZH to play, and has 5StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability makes a Sappy Place environment on a selected lane when he is played.

He was added in update 1.16.10, along with Corn Dog, Clique Peas, Trapper Zombie, King of the Grill, Synchronized Swimmer, and the Galactic Gardens set.

He was available during the Super Sappy Week.


He is based on the plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 with the same name and appearance.

At first, you might think that Sap-Fling seems weak for having only 3HeartPvZH, which is horrible for such an expensive card at 6SunPvZH, but his ability to make an environment to take away 3StrengthPvZH from zombies makes this plant worth it. Sap-Fling's ability can also override a zombie environment and shut down the abilities of Kite Flyer, Zom-Bats, Vimpire, Space Ninja, and Space Cowboy if they are unboosted and untouched. Sap-Fling can also nullify the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly, PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough, and PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy traits on zombies with 3StrengthPvZH or less. And surprisingly, Sap-Fling also hits quite hard, given that he has 5StrengthPvZH.

Rose has a great use of Sap-Fling. Playing him while Cosmoss is on the field will give Cosmoss +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH. Since Sap-Fling lowers a zombie's strength, Rose can also use this with Whack-a-Zombie, Chomper, or Toadstool. Citron, likewise, can use Sap-Fling's ability in tandem with tough Team-Up plants like Wall-Nut so the zombie hero cannot easily bypass his defenses. He can also protect Sap-Fling from damage with Root Wall or Peel Shield, or by playing the aforementioned Team-Up plants in front of him.

Sap-Fling is also quite effective at protecting cards that may be essential for your deck's synergy, such as Starch-Lord in the case of Citron or Beta-Carrotina, or Briar Rose in the case of Rose, as it will significantly lower the strength of anything that was or is played to take them out, provided they are played on a ground lane.


When Sappy Place is made on a lane with a zombie, either move the zombie with Smoke Bomb or Bounce the zombie with Firefighter or Secret Agent. Giving the zombie +3StrengthPvZH will undo the ability of Sappy Place. You can also override Sappy Place with another environment, preferably cheap ones like Black Hole.

To destroy Sap-Fling, play instant-kill tricks like Rocket Science or Locust Swarm. Because of his low health, anything that does 3 or more damage, like Zombot's Wrath, can destroy him as well.

Do not Bounce Sap-Fling unless you need to, as your opponent can play Sap-Fling again and make another Sappy Place.



  • Unlike his Plants vs. Zombies 2 counterpart, he actually does damage to zombies.
  • He, Sportacus, Go-Nuts and Witch Hazel are currently the only event cards in the Smarty class without the Amphibious trait.
  • Sometimes, he gets +1StrengthPvZH after damaging the zombie hero. This is most likely a glitch or developer oversight.
  • He is the only event tree card, as well as the only tree card in the Smarty class.
    • He is also the only pinecone card in the Smarty class.
