For other uses, see Gargantuar (disambiguation).

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

Origins

He is based on the zombie from Plants vs. Zombies with the same appearance.

His description is a reference to the movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and its famous quote "E.T., phone home", which can also mean to call friends or family at someone's house.

Strategies

With

Smashing Gargantuar himself has decent stats, in addition to his PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait. He is strong enough to clear a lane of plants that have less than 5StrengthPvZH/5HeartPvZH, and then strike your opponent. Combined 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 well 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. However, be sure to carry some early-game cards.

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 PvZH Guardian IconGuardian hero is quite risky, as they may have Doom-Shrooms in their deck. Such a deck is also weak to Shamrocket which can destroy a single Gargantuar at a cheaper price without risking their own defenses, so be aware.

Also, note that not all Gargantuars benefit from Smashing Gargantuar's ability, as there are Gargantuars that already have the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait, namely Wannabe Hero, King of the Grill, and Supernova Gargantuar. So if you don't think Smashing Gargantuar's ability would be very effective, then Supernova Gargantuar is the best alternative to him as he has more health and a powerful ability to remove multiple plants at once.

Against

Smashing Gargantuar is a very dangerous zombie, but there are a plenty of 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 4StrengthPvZH or more on the field, as they also get destroyed from it. You can also play Shamrocket to get rid of him for a cheap cost.

Plants with at least 5StrengthPvZH can also easily destroy this zombie. However, be careful of zombie tricks.
