Strategies

With

Swabbie is in most cases only useful as a shield to absorb incoming fire for the zombie hero, as his basic stats do not allow him to survive very long or deal significant damage to plants or the plant hero. However, he can be boosted for 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 spawn a Swabbie or in the case of the latter, spawning more pirate zombies, and Swashbuckler Zombie, benefits Swabbie and other pirate zombies from Swashbuckler Zombie, who raises their stats when they hurt the plant hero.

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 hurts the zombie hero, can take great advantage of Swabbie.

As Huge-Gigantacus or Super Brainz, you can take advantage of his cost to play him on Medulla Nebula, gaining free 6BrainPvZH that turn, allowing you to play expensive tricks such as Bad Moon Rising or let the Zom-Blob gain more attack if you play him that turn.

Against

Anything that can attack can destroy this zombie. Use minimal powered plants or tricks, and Bounce this zombie if he gets powered up too much.

Try to not waste useful cards like Wild Berry or Sizzle on it unless it's boosted, as they can be saved for stronger zombies later on. Sour Grapes is a good plant against this zombie as it can destroy it without needing to waste any potentially useful cards.

Trivia

  • He, Toxic Waste Imp, Walrus Rider, Fishy Imp, Impfinity Clone and Space Cowboy are the only Imps to have the Amphibious trait.
  • Oddly, when he was a token, he could still be played by Super Brainz in the tutorial on his own.
  • He, Zombot Plank Walker and Zombot Aerostatic Gondola are the only pirate zombies to have the Amphibious trait.
    • He is the only non-legendary card out of these three.
  • He is currently the cheapest zombie card to play, and is tied for the cheapest card in the game with Puff-Shroom, who both cost 0 naturally. Coincidentally, they both have 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH and one trait.
    • However, unlike Puff-Shroom, he is in two tribes.
