He is based on the strawberry, a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria that is cultivated worldwide for its fruit.
His name is a portmanteau of "strawberry," the real-life plant he is based on, and "barbarian," a person long ago in the past which was considered wild and uncivilized, possibly referring to his appearance, animations, and description.

Strawberrian is just a fighter with average stats, but its abilities can be a huge help for you, and can easily devastate the zombies with enough support.
Strawberrian's normal ability doesn't do that much damage, but it is handy against glass cannons, or if there are zombies next to Strawberrian. It also provides offensive support for your other plants. This gets even more dangerous when paired with High-Voltage Currant, Pair Pearadise, or Sergeant Strongberry. High-Voltage Currant gets +1 per zombie damaged, allowing it to at least hit very hard. Pair Pearadise doubles the berries played, which in turn doubles the damage done by Strawberrian. And finally, Sergeant Strongberry does 2 damage to the ones Strawberrian already damages, resulting in 3 damage to each of the three zombies per berry. His ability bypassing Untrickable is also a bonus.
Strawberrian's Evolution ability is also helpful. While it doesn't bump Strawberrian's value so much unlike many other Evolution cards, it serves as an extra efficient method of damage and ability activation, and also card gain for Dino-Roar cards, although minor. It is highly recommended to carry Shelf Mushrooms in your deck if you want to activate said ability, as the only other berries playable before turn 3, High-Voltage Currant and Wild Berry, have only 1 health. While you can play them on an empty lane, Shelf Mushroom is a much safer choice.
However, Strawberrian's ability is nullified by Armored zombies. It also can't hurt your opponent directly, so it becomes less powerful if they either spread out their zombies, or don't have many on the field. Still, since you will be rushing out with berries, you will rack up a lot of damage if your opponent chooses to do so.
Strawberrian isn't the strongest fighter in the game, but its abilities can be troublesome. Your opponent will play as many berries as possible, bombarding you with lots of damage early to mid-game. If you can live through, or control the early game, Strawberrian will be less of a threat. However, if you are running a rush deck, and you don't have damaging cards that can destroy Strawberrian, he will easily ruin your strategy, or at least cause a dent in it.
