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 water lane and expose them to attack, to avoid buffs from zombies like Arm Wrestler, or clear a lane for Anti-Hero or high damage plants to hit the opposing zombie hero directly. For Mega-Grow heroes with almost no Amphibious plants, such as Chompzilla or Captain Combustible, this can be a helpful tool for dealing with Amphibious threats.
Sweet Potato can be used in tandem with Precision Blast, as the ability to lure a zombie into the middle lane will allow you to attack the opposing zombie for 5 damage, or vice versa, all the while at a minimal sun cost.
Using tricks is the player's best bet to disposing of this quickly. Because of its ability, a zombie most likely will not be able to defeat this in a timely manner. If the opponent has used this on a high health zombie and there are no attacking plants there, then the Sweet Potato should be killed 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.
- Unlike its appearance in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Sweet Potato has visible teeth.
- It and Jack O' Lantern are the only plants in this game to be based off a limited edition plant from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
