Sour. Bitter. Resentful. It's all true. But he's got his reasons.

Sour Grapes is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability does 1 damage to every zombie on the field when it is played.

Origins

It is based on the Grape, a fruiting berry of the deciduous woody vines of the botanical genus Vitis.

Its name is either based on the term "sour grapes," used to refer to an attitude in which someone adopts a negative attitude to something because they cannot have it themselves, or the 1998 comedy movie Sour Grapes.

Strategies

With

Sour Grapes can be used to finish off damaged zombies or to weaken out all of the zombies on the field. It is also surprisingly effective against most zombie heroes from the Crazy class, such as Impfinity or Electric Boogaloo. This is because the majority of the PvZH Crazy IconCrazy zombies have 1 health, allowing Sour Grapes to easily wipe them out. However, this can also be its downfall, specifically with decks that benefit from zombies being destroyed to boost Valkyrie. This is most prominent with Professor Brainstorm, so decide whether it's worth the risk to defeat many zombies in risk of boosting a Valkyrie.

It is also useful when combined with Sergeant Strongberry, doing 3 damage to every zombie on the field to take out zombies with higher health. If you're playing as Nightcap, using this directly after using The Great Zucchini will wipe the field of zombies.

Remember that PvZH Armored IconArmored zombies are completely unaffected by the ability, so it is best not to use this plant when there are many on the field, and to use more powerful plants to take them out first.

Against

Sour Grapes itself should not be too difficult to take out since it only has 2 strength and health. Most zombie fighters should be able to take Sour Grapes out. A simple Bungee Plumber or Rolling Stone can take this out too, along with Weed Spray which can also take other plants out with it.

However, the player should worry the most about its ability when played, especially when the player is playing as a Crazy zombie hero. The best counters for this plant are PvZH Armored IconArmored zombies, as they can withstand Sour Grapes' ability without taking any damage. To protect zombies without the Armored trait, the player can use boosting cards like Yeti Lunchbox or Camel Crossing.

Crazy heroes can use this to their advantage. If they pack a deck with Valkyrie, this can end up giving Valkyrie a max boost of 10 strength in just one turn, assuming all lanes were filled. Combined with tricks like Lurch for Lunch, Maniacal Laugh, and Teleport, this can end in an instant win once used.

It is not recommended to Bounce Sour Grapes as this will allow the opponent to play it again.

Trivia

  • Its appearance and ability may be inspired by Grapeshot from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • It is one of the three plants based on grapes, the other two being Grapes of Wrath and Grapeshot.
  • The words "sour," "bitter," and "resentful" mentioned in its description are references to jealousy, which is referencing what this plant's name is based on.
  • If it is made by Seedling, the grapes it fires when played become glowing strikes instead.
