Shieldcrusher Viking is a premium legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. It costs 5 to play, and has 5/5. It has the Bullseye trait, and its ability empties the plant hero's Super-Block Meter when it does damage to them.
It is based on a viking, a Norse seafarer, who spoke the Old Norse language, that raided and traded from the vikings' Scandinavian homelands across wide areas of northern, central and Eastern Europe, during the late 8th to the late 11th centuries.

Its ability makes this zombie shine. It has Bullseye and will deplete the plant hero's Super-Block Meter fully. The combination of these 2 abilities makes this a powerful zombie to deal with. Not to mention its stats, consisting of 5/5. Using this early on can really struggle the plant hero, but later on can be used for powerful support against tougher plants.
It is mostly recommended to play this either on the height lane or the center ground lane, as its block draining ability will allow other zombie fighters to damage the opposing plant hero without having to worry about them blocking and avoiding taking damage.
Since the 1.2.11 update, this is considered as a Pirate zombie. This makes it even better, as it can be affected by other Pirate zombies, such as Swashbuckler Zombie or Zombot Plank Walker in a Pirate deck for Super Brainz.
This is very difficult to kill if it's placed early on, but should be a bit easier if the zombie hero uses it later on. Squash will defeat this easily, as well as Lawnmower if placed on the ground lanes. Bouncing this should be a last resort option, as the zombie hero can just play it again. Beware of its ability, as it can stop you from blocking incoming attacks. A combination of tricks and powerful plants should be used to defeat this.
