Spudow is the Potato Mine hero in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes who leads the Kabloom and Guardian plants against the zombies. Spudow's signature superpower is Tater Toss, which makes him pop out his head and will create a Hothead in a designated lane. However, it cannot be placed on water due to it lacking the Amphibious trait. The Hothead will explode and deal 6 damage to the zombie in its lane upon defeat.
Spudow is based on the Solanum tuberosum, commonly known as the potato. Spudow bears a resemblance to Baymax from the Disney animated film, Big Hero 6. His name is a reference to the onomatopoeia "SPUDOW!" that appears when a Potato Mine explodes, or the achievement itself, SPUDOW!.

- His description is a gag to how Spudow uses his signature superpower, Tater Toss, in which that he loses his head to summon a Hothead and respawns his head afterwards.
- He can take his head off, throw it as a Hothead and regrow it afterward. This may be alluding to the Potato Mine and Primal Potato Mine's Plant Food ability in Plants vs. Zombies 2, in which they send out copies of themselves.
- Spudow has the head of a Plants vs. Zombies Potato Mine, but when he takes his head off and it becomes a Hothead it resembles a Plants vs. Zombies 2 Potato Mine.
- His entry animation alludes to the way Potato Mines explode.
- In the comic strip that introduces Spudow to the player, a Gargantuar Prime is shown, despite not being a zombie card.
