Update 1.2.11

  • Set - Rarity change: Basic - Uncommon to Premium - Rare.



Squirrel Herder is useful against any Kabloom or Guardian hero, and especially Spudow, which has both. It is better against Guardian plants which specialize in Nuts than Kabloom plants which specialize in berries, since there are more Nuts than Berries in the game.

Squirrel Herder can instantly neutralize nuts that make things harder like Water Chestnut and Mirror-Nut, or potentially dangerous Berries like Sergeant Strongberry or Hibernating Beary. Its use decreases against a Solar hero other than Wall-Knight or Solar Flare, since the only Nut or Berry in the Solar class is Mixed Nuts, and its ability turns to be basically useless against Green Shadow, since neither the Mega-Grow nor Smarty class have Nuts or Berries.

Like many Gravestone zombies, Grave Buster is a threat to this zombie. And since Grave Buster is a Guardian trick, you must be extra careful against Guardian heroes.


Most of the cards can counter it easily, due to its low health and attack. You can also use the Grave Buster on it, due to it have the Gravestone trait.




  • Its ability is a reference to how a squirrel's diet consists mainly of nuts and berries.
  • Its animation is very similar to Skunk Punk.
    • Coincidentally, both are in the Pet Tribe and both attack using animals with four legs.
  • On Brain Freeze's Premium Pack, it has red-orange hair instead of the blond hair it normally has.
  • If the player looks closely, they can see a glass in its binoculars is cracked.
