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

The Podfather is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. It costs 3SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives all pea plants played after it +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH, excluding it. This ability persists until all Podfathers are removed from the field.

In all battles of the mission Beware the Bewitching Zombie, the plant hero starts with a Podfather on the second lane with a Wall-Nut in front of it.

Origins

Its name, appearance, and former 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 based on.

Strategies

With

The Podfather isn't very great in combat, but its ability makes this a big threat. Every pea plant will gain a stat boost upon being played while The Podfather is in play. Even the weak Peashooter can become a decent plant if boosted by The Podfather, let alone the more powerful ones like Repeater, Skyshooter, and Threepeater. Using Torchwood is also a good choice since it powers them up even further.

Green Shadow and Grass Knuckles are the best heroes to use The Podfather, as Green Shadow can protect The Podfather with stalling tricks before she can unleash Threepeater, while Grass Knuckles has defensive Team-Up plants that can protect The Podfather, and also useful pea plants from the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class.

Since The Podfather is part of the Mega-Grow class, you can increase its survivability with strength and health boosts like Fertilize or Plant Food. And as The Podfather itself is a pea plant, you can have its strength boosted with a Torchwood in front of it.

Overall, it is a good plant for boosting other pea plants, and should be protected well.

Against

While The Podfather 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 if played behind a Torchwood. Dispose of The Podfather before the opponent can fill the field with pea plants. Thanks to its low stats, Rolling Stone and Bungee Plumber can destroy this easily unless The Podfather's stats have been boosted.

Trivia

  • The Podfather will play its boosting animation if Green Shadow uses Precision Blast, as it is also considered a pea card.
