Transfiguration is an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Kabloom IconKabloom class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability transforms a plant, including it, into another random plant when that plant takes damage in any way and does not get destroyed. This ability stacks with each Transfiguration on the field, and persists until all Transfigurations are removed from the field.

It was introduced in update 1.18.13, along with Go-Nuts, Witch Hazel, Haunted Pumpking, Ketchup Mechanic, Fraidy Cat, Sneezing Zombie, Exploding Fruitcake, Unexpected Gifts, and Frankentuar.

Origin

It is based on a fig, an Asian species of flowering plants in the mulberry family best known for its leaf, used as a tool for covering the genitals of nude human drawings in realist art pieces, biblical paintings and popular culture.

Its leaves may be a reference to the aformentioned usage of fig leaves.

Its name is based on the real meaning of transfiguration, a complete change of form or appearance into a more beautiful or spiritual state.

Its appearance is a pun on the word "fig" in its name.

Strategies

With

Transfiguration is arguably a powerful plant as it has no restriction on what random plant it can transform into, unlike Seedling. The transformed plant can range from as weak as Peashooter to as powerful as Cornucopia, allowing you to create synergies you normally wouldn't be able to.

Keep in mind that if a plant is destroyed after it takes damage, Transfiguration's ability will not activate. Do not use 1HeartPvZH plants like Puff-Shroom with it, as you will have to boost their health in order to activate its ability. Instead, use high-health plants like Wall-Nut or Invasive Species as if they get hurt and survive, they will transform into a random plant. Transfiguration can also transform a plant into something with 1HeartPvZH, although this cannot be prevented.

Spudow can use this plant well as he has access to health boosts, which can allow more plants to be transformed more, and Galacta-Cactus, which can transform swarms of plants, as if it gets destroyed, all plants will be transformed. However, be careful with this strategy, because it will also transform Transfiguration, rendering its ability useless.

If you have two or more Transfigurations on the field, any plant that gets hurt will transform multiple times, and any time a plant is transformed into another plant with a "When Played" ability, that ability will activate before that plant transforms again. This allows you to create powerful combinations, depending on your luck.

Since transforming a plant counts as playing a plant, Muscle Sprout works well with it. However, only Captain Combustible can do this normally. Another problem is that Muscle Sprout must be protected too, and Captain Combustible's protecting options are limited to Torchwood, who is better off with other pea plants, Sweet Potato, who draws aggravation and shortens its own survivability, and Pear Pal and Puff-Shroom, both of which are difficult to utilize as Team-Up shields due to their nature, not to mention that all four have low health.

Overall, it is absolutely important to protect Transfiguration, so as to make the most use of it. While it has a high health stat that decreases the likelihood of it being destroyed at once, it will turn itself into a random plant if it takes even a small amount of damage, shutting down any future combos with it. Fortunately, Spudow can work around it by playing Transfiguration in Force Field.

Although Transfiguration's ability can be very helpful at times, take note that any plant with high stats can easily be reset with something as simple as a Bungee Plumber or Conga Zombie. As such, using plants like Doubled Mint or a strong Potted Powerhouse may not be a good idea, as any damage done to them will cause all boosts on the plant to be lost.

Against

Due to its ability, Transfiguration also pressures you to destroy all plants you want to in one go. Do not play damaging cards unless they can destroy the plant. You also have to be extra cautious with mass-damaging abilities like Fireworks Zombie, Gas Giant, or Barrel of Deadbeards', as it will damage and transform all non-PvZH Armored IconArmored plants. The only exception is 1HeartPvZH plants, which will be instantly destroyed when they get hurt.

However, Transfiguration can occasionally be an asset for you as its ability allows for an easy way to get rid of strong plants like Doubled Mint or The Great Zucchini. This is especially true for PvZH Crazy IconCrazy heroes, who can use simple tricks or zombies like Foot Soldier, Conga Zombie or Bungee Plumber to activate Transfiguration's ability and thus transform the strong plant into something else that may be weaker. However, this is a risky method that should only be used as a last resort as Transfiguration's ability could backfire on you and transform the plant into something stronger, possibly winning your opponent the game.

Transfiguration itself can be stopped easily, as any form of harm will either outright destroy it (such as playing Rolling Stone or Weed Spray), or transform it and put an end to its ability. However, you will lose the opportunity to tamper with your opponent's strategy.

Trivia

  • When it activates its ability, it briefly transforms into a Peashooter, a Black-Eyed Pea, and a Cattail before reverting back to its original appearance.
  • It has the most health out of all Kabloom cards, as well as all event cards.
  • Its description both references its ability, and Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, a part of quantum mechanics.
  • During development, it was originally going to be 2StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH, then was changed to 2StrengthPvZH/6HeartPvZH, then 2StrengthPvZH/9HeartPvZH, and finally its current stats of 2StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH.
  • It was originally called "Trans-Fig-uration," making the pun in its name more obvious.
