Secret Agent is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Beastly IconBeastly class. He costs 1BrainPvZH to play, and his ability gives the Bounce effect and +3StrengthPvZH/+3HeartPvZH to a selected zombie.

Strategies

With

This card is extremely risky due to the fact that he Bounces a zombie, but can be exceptionally rewarding as a match goes on as the trick gives it +3StrengthPvZH/+3HeartPvZH, and costs 2 brains less than Vitamin Z. The best zombie to use him on is cheap zombies with either good strength or health, like Cat Lady or Tennis Champ. That way, your opponent will have to face a very powerful zombie on the next turn. This also means the zombie Bounced will activate its ability again if it has a "When played" ability. This can be really beneficial for zombies with the Gravestone trait, or other zombies that have a "When played" ability like Trickster and Medic. Also be aware of the fact that Secret Agent is a trick, and to play the zombie again, you must wait until the next turn or use Teleport or Teleportation Zombie.

Electric Boogaloo can use this on zombies such as Newspaper Zombie or Jester to not only reset their stats but also to make them stronger. This can be really useful with glass cannons as well, like Exploding Imp or Tennis Champ. Immorticia and The Smash should focus on zombies with the Gravestone trait and other zombies that have "When played" abilities. Brain Freeze should consider replacing Firefighters with this, as they do the same thing, with this option being cheaper and boosting the Bounced zombie. However, do keep in mind that this does also remove any of the boosts you gave to the zombie as well, so it is not recommended to use it on zombies that can get boosted easily like Unlife of the Party, unless it is for the sake of rescuing them. Using Secret Agent on a card that has already been boosted by it will also reset its stats.

The main issue for this card is that you are spending brains just to Bounce it back. Because of this, you will ultimately have to spend double the zombie's cost plus 1BrainPvZH more with this trick. Due to this, try to avoid Bouncing any expensive zombies with Secret Agent unless you can handle its cost. Another issue about this card is that Jelly Bean can take advantage of it. Therefore, think more carefully in such a situation.

Against

There is not much that can be done to counter this card other than destroying every zombie so they cannot be Bounced. In addition, having board control will make the zombie hero think twice before bouncing a zombie, otherwise they will leave a lane open and get damaged more. Prepare a Shamrocket just in case the zombie used is too powerful to normally deal with. If it is a zombie with the Gravestone trait, use Grave Buster to destroy it easily. If this gets played, make sure to keep the Bounced zombie in mind, as it can come out at any time, and make sure to be prepared for the zombie to be played again as it will have better stats than before. Or alternatively, you can Bounce the zombie again to remove its boost.

Also, because he is a trick, you can play Forget-Me-Nuts or Dark Matter Dragonfruit to hinder him from being played, or Brainana to disable the zombie hero from playing him entirely, though only for that turn. You can also play Jelly Bean in an attempt to discourage your opponent.

Trivia

  • There is a green splotch of liquid seen in his textures that is not used in-game.
    • It may be possible that it would have appeared during his animation, parodying the blood seen in the gun barrel sequence in the James Bond movies.
