It costs 1Brain to play (only when Bounced and as a card from Eureka), and has 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH. Its effect gives it the Amphibious trait.

Update History

Update 1.4.14

  • Class change: Neutral → PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky


Swabbie is in most cases only useful as a shield to absorb incoming fire for its owner, as its basic stats does not allow it to survive very long or deal significant damage to the plant. Although, it can be boosted for the extra damage or defense, with the help of Maniacal Laugh and the like.

A pirate-themed deck using Imp-Throwing Gargantuar or Zombot Plank Walker, to play a Swabbie or in the case of the latter, spawning more other pirate zombies, and Swashbuckler Zombie, as it benefits from pirate zombies that have been defeated, and it especially works with Swabbie's incredibly low base health.

An Imp-themed one with Toxic Waste Imp, adding the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait to all Imp zombies, and Imp Commander, to draw an extra card when an Imp is on the field, can take great advantage of Swabbie.


Anything that can attack can destroy this zombie. Use minimal powered plants or tricks, bounce this zombie if necessary.
