Sweet Potato can be used to protect other plants, as it can withstand most attacks early on, and continue to absorb at least one hit the longer a game draws out. Sweet Potato's real value, however, lies in its ability to draw a zombie to its lane, allowing the player to either remove Amphibious zombies from the aquatic lane and expose them to attack, move Arm Wrestler to prevent him from getting boosted, or clear a lane for Anti-Hero or high-strength plants to hit your opponent directly. For Mega-Grow heroes with no Amphibious plants, such as Chompzilla and Captain Combustible, this can be a helpful tool for dealing with Amphibious threats.
Green Shadow can use Sweet Potato in tandem with Precision Blast, as the ability to lure a zombie into the middle lane will allow her to attack that zombie for 5 damage, or vice versa, all the while at a minimal sun cost. Grass Knuckles can increase its survivability with health-boosting cards such as Steel Magnolia.
Using tricks is the player's best bet to disposing of it quickly. Because of its ability, a zombie will most likely be unable to destroy it in a timely manner. If the opponent has used this on a high health zombie and there are no attacking plants there, then Sweet Potato should be destroyed easily. Another way to prevent this is to fill all lanes with zombies. Electrobolt can destroy it instantly, provided it is not boosted. Tricks such as Smoke Bomb and Carried Away can also move the zombie back to its original position.
