Strategies

With

Smelly Zombie can be considered the most "standard", yet more useful variant of the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies, due to him possessing useful qualities in terms of his strength, health, his Gravestone trait and his cost of 3 brains.

While he has 1 extra brain needed to be played compared to Toxic Waste Imp, this zombie is able to wall more damage himself, unlike the others. Smelly Zombie, if possible, may be more useful than Barrel Roller Zombie for the same reason, since he costs less brains when you need to use a PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombie.

In most cases, due to his trait, Smelly Zombie is more suited in attacking fighters compared to heroes due to his low strength. To use this zombie well, use him on any powerful plant, such as Super-Phat Beets, Cornucopia, or any other plant that you may have trouble countering against, which you wish to quickly get rid of easily.

Thankfully, due to the fact that he has 2 strength, he is able to destroy PvZH Armored IconArmored plants, such as Jugger-Nut, Tough Beets, and even Soul Patch. Speaking of Soul Patch, any successful hit to the plant hero with a Soul Patch will result in the Soul Patch redirecting the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly damage to himself, instantly being destroyed unless Soul Patch himself is shielded.

As he comes out from a gravestone, the plant hero will not be able to counter this zombie entirely until the next turn, with the exceptions of Grave Buster, Blockbuster , or Cool Bean, though the chances of the opposing hero having him all the time may not be common. If a powerful plant is placed on a different lane from where this zombie is, you may move him with Smoke Bomb or Carried Away. Using boosting tricks such as Camel Crossing or Vitamin Z as either Neptuna or Brain Freeze respectively may also help this zombie last longer.

His Gravestone trait also allows for some potential mix-ups for Super Brainz and Impfinity, as they have plenty of Gravestone zombies that also cost 3 brains, and potentially serve as bait. For instance, the plant hero could suspect something like an Abracadaver or a Jester from a gravestone, only to find out it was Smelly Zombie, essentially wasting their powerful plant.

Giving this PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy can be a good idea, since he will instantly destroy any plant he attacks, allowing him to attack again. This can work well against Guardian heroes especially, as you can destroy any Team-Up plant they put to protect an important fighter.

Since he is in the pet tribe, he can benefit Zookeeper and Cat Lady by activating their abilities, although only Brain Freeze can do so normally.

Against

Smelly Zombie has a bulky health stat of 4. Not only that, he has the Gravestone trait, making him invulnerable to many trick until revealed. And the worst part is his PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait, which makes it generally unappealing to just whip out your strongest plant to deal with him, as that plant will be destroyed too unless shielded.

If you are facing a Sneaky hero, take caution if they play a Gravestone zombie. If possible, use Grave Buster or Blockbuster to get rid of him or Cool Bean to PvZH Frozen IconFreeze him. If you have Winter Squash, you can use it to destroy him while he is frozen. When he has emerged, PvZH Frozen IconFreeze him, then use an offensive plant to destroy him. If you are desperate to destroy him, use Sizzle or Squash to aid you. Chomper's ability will also make short work of this zombie.
