Swashbuckler Zombie is a basic common zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 2 to play, and has 2/2. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability gives every pirate zombie +1/+1, but only when one does damage to the plant hero. This ability persists until all Swashbuckler Zombies are removed from the field.

By itself, his ability is a bit weak. He seems similar to the Zombot Drone Engineer, but he only activates his ability by hurting the plant hero. If you do play using Super Brainz, you can use Lurch for Lunch to keep hitting the plant hero and be able to boost him up.
Swashbuckler Zombie should be used in tandem with other pirate zombies. Notable ones include Imp Commander and Shieldcrusher Viking. This can also benefit greatly because of his low brain cost. This means he can be deployed nearly every turn. Using Smoke Bomb on him can greatly help as he will gain +1 and be moved away from the plants blocking him, if there are any. Zombot Plank Walker is also really useful as it has Strikethrough, which can help Swashbuckler Zombie boost Zombot Plank Walker. Imp-Throwing Gargantuar is also a good zombie to use with him as both the Gargantuar and Swabbies that are thrown are pirate zombies, essential to help boost any pirate.
Because this appears via gravestone, Grave Buster or any plant with 2 or more will deal with this with ease. However, this may not be the case with Brain Freeze of Impfinity, as they have the most 2 brain cost zombies with the Gravestone trait. Neptuna might also use Sumo Wrestler, and Super Brainz might use Zombot Drone Engineer. Since he starts out with 2, a Potato Mine can destroy him unless he is boosted. Whack-a-Zombie will also work if his strength is below 4.
