The Podfather is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Mega-Grow class. It costs 3 to play, and has 2/2. It has no traits, and its ability gives every pea plant +2/+2, but only those that are played after this. This ability persists until all Podfathers are removed from the field.
Its name, appearance, and description are all references to the 1972 movie The Godfather. Its name is a portmanteau of pod, referring to the fact that it is a pea plant and Godfather, the character this plant is a parody of.

"It ain't easy keeping the peas in this family."

The Podfather isn't very great in combat, but its effect makes this a big threat. Even a Peashooter can be a decent plant if boosted by The Podfather, let alone other dangerous ones like Repeater, Skyshooter, or Threepeater. Using Torchwood is also a good choice since it powers them up even further.
Green Shadow and Grass Knuckles are ideal heroes to use, as Green Shadow has the most pea plants out of any Mega-Grow hero, while Grass Knuckles has defensive Team-Up plants that can protect The Podfather (although you would most likely use Torchwood instead of Wall-Nuts).
While The Podfather itself isn't so threatening by itself, the opponent can wreck havoc by playing many pea plants after it, making all of them stronger and more dangerous, especially with Torchwood. Dispose of The Podfather before the opponent can do so. Thanks to its low stats, Rolling Stone and Bungee Plumber can destroy this easily unless The Podfather has been buffed by another Podfather.
- The Podfather will play its buffing animation if Green Shadow uses Precision Blast, as it is also considered a pea card.
