Smashing Gargantuar is a premium uncommon 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.

Strategies

With

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.

Smashing Gargantuar synergizes with every Beastly hero, but the hero who can use him the best is The Smash, as the PvZH Hearty IconHearty class has access to the most Gargantuar zombies (aside from the Beastly class), as well as Gargologist which can lower the cost of this zombie so it 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 PvZH Guardian IconGuardian hero is quite risky, as they may have Doom-Shroom cards in their deck.

Against

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 4StrengthPvZH or more on the field, as they also get destroyed from it. You can also play Shamrocket to get rid of him.
