Update history

Version 1.2.11

  • Rarity change: Basic - Uncommon → Premium - Rare



Tough Beets has really good base stats, (assuming there is a good number of plants or zombies on field), for a moderate cost of 5SunPvZH. Strategies with Super-Phat Beets should apply here as it gains more health for each plant and zombie. The PvZH Armored IconArmored trait makes it immune to zombies that have only 1StrengthPvZH, preventing the opponent from using weak zombie fighters to slowly whittle down the Tough Beets.

Keep in mind that it's heavily not recommended to use this card if there are fewer plants and zombies on the field, as it will be very easy to take out and most likely won't be worth the 5SunPvZH.


Having the Armored trait will make it very difficult for the player to take down Tough Beets, as attacks and damaging tricks will be reduced by 1. However, using tricks that would destroy Tough Beets, such as Rocket Science or Locust Swarm can simply ignore the Armored trait it has. Sneaky heroes can also use PvZH Deadly Icon Deadly zombies, though they will be defeated in the process. Bouncing this with Backyard Bounce can help, especially if the turn it's placed on will defeat many plants/zombies.




  • If one looks closely, the Tough Beets seems to be holding a piece of straw in its mouth on its card. However, the piece of straw is not seen in-game.
  • Its name is plural when the plant is only one beet.
  • Tough Beets and Super Phat Beets have similar effects, gaining boosts that depending on the numbers of plants and zombies on the field when played.
    • Both of them also appear to enlarge when they use their effects.
