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, including other Podfathers, but only those that are played after it. 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 powerful 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.
While The Podfather itself isn't so threatening by itself, the opponent can wreak 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's stats have been boosted.
- The Podfather will play its boosting animation if Green Shadow uses Precision Blast, as it is also considered a pea card.
