Smashing Gargantuar is a premium rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Beastly class. He can also be made by Gargantuar-Throwing Imp. He costs 5 to play, and has 5/5. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives all Gargantuar zombies on the field, including him, the Frenzy trait. This ability persists until all Smashing Gargantuars are removed from the field.

Smashing Gargantuar himself is very powerful. He is strong enough to clear a lane of plants, then strike your opponent. And with other Gargantuars on the field, the devastation he causes gets even more massive.
Since the Beastly class has the most Gargantuar zombies out of the zombie classes, Smashing Gargantuar synergizes with every Beastly hero. For example, The Smash can use this with Gargologist, which lowers the cost of this zombie so he can be played earlier to put pressure on your opponent.
Keep in mind, however, that all Gargantuars are vulnerable to Doom-Shroom unless one's strength has been lowered, so using this along with other Gargantuars against a Guardian hero is quite risky, as they may have Doom-Shroom cards in their deck.
Smashing Guargantuar is a very dangerous zombie, but there are a few ways to easily take care of it. You can play Squash or Lawnmower to get rid of him, or even better, Doom-Shroom, since it destroys all Gargantuars at once compared to the former two. If you are going to play Doom-Shroom, however, it is recommended to see if you have any plants with 4 or more on the field, as they also get destroyed from it. You can also play Shamrocket to get rid of him.
