Sergeant Strongberry is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. He costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability does 2 more damage to a zombie or the zombie hero every time another berry card, including another Sergeant Strongberry, does damage to them. This ability stacks with each Sergeant Strongberry on the field, and persists until all Sergeant Strongberries are removed from the field.

Origins

His appearance could be based on a sergeant or a coach. The "Strongberry" part of his name is a portmanteau of "strong" and "Strawberry."

Strategies

With

Sergeant Strongberry on his own has average stats for his cost of 4 sun. However, he is unable to activate his ability by himself, so he requires other berries to be very effective. Sergeant Strongberry really shines in a deck that has a lot of berry cards in it, as when played with him on the field, he can dish out a lot of additional damage. It is recommended to carry Berry Blast, Sour Grapes, Cherry Bomb and/or Grapes of Wrath with this, as they are all berries that trigger Sergeant Strongberry's ability. Bluesberry is also useful as it can do 2 damage to a zombie or zombie hero, plus another 2 damage with the Sergeant Strongberry for a total of 4. As for most synergetic cards, only bring this into your deck if you have at least 2 or more different berries in your deck.

However, when there are two Sergeant Strongberries on the field, using Berry Blast on your opponent can allow two Sergeant Strongberries to continuously do damage to the zombie hero until the zombie hero blocks an attack from one. This can also be useful once the zombie hero is out of Super-Blocks or while holding 10 cards in their hand, allowing the loop can finish the game off risk-free. You can also use this tactic against tough zombies like Undying Pharaoh, Octo Zombie, or Zombot 1000 to easily destroy them as long as there are two or more Sergeant Strongberries on the field.

Against

Countering this plant is not too hard, as long as there are no other berries besides himself. Most zombie cards can destroy this plant fairly easily. Rocket Science can destroy him in one hit, but cannot hit other berries with less than 4 strength due to his ability not directly increasing strength. However, be careful if he stays on the board, as Kabloom heroes will be able to destroy many zombies or damage you using berry cards, especially using Sour Grapes, so be sure to destroy this plant as soon as possible. Cakesplosion can also destroy Sergeant Strongberry as long his health has not been boosted.

If you see two Sergeant Strongberries, be sure to destroy at least one of them very quickly. Otherwise, your opponent can cause an exploit to do continuous damage to zombies on field with a cycle of Sergeant Strongberries. This can even work on heroes, meaning that the loop will continue until you get a Super-Block from one of the Sergeant Strongberries. However, you should always deal with Sergeant Strongberries if you have no more blocks, otherwise this combo will instantly defeat you regardless of your health. Also, if you have a rather beefy zombie in play such as Undying Pharaoh or Wannabe Hero, they will be destroyed by the loop, so keep that in mind.
