Strategies

With

Overall, while Turkey Rider is a simple 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH zombie in terms of stats, he is a really good zombie that benefits both the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky and PvZH Beastly IconBeastly classes, and large groups of zombies in general. He can benefit Cat Lady or Zookeeper since he is a pet zombie (only normally possible as The Smash), and Imp Commander or Toxic Waste Imp since he is an Imp zombie as well (only normally possible with Neptuna). Additionally, once Turkey Rider is destroyed, he gives Leftovers, which is an amazing card, only costing 2 brains to give all zombies +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZHRustbolt can also use him to greatly benefit Paparazzi Zombie, Trick-or-Treater, Mad Chemist, and Trickster as Turkey Rider is a zombie that gives a trick, which can be used to activate their abilities.

If you want the earn Leftovers quickly, allow Turkey Rider to be destroyed by raising their strength to force a reaction, or play him against a strong plant. Furthermore, you can use Barrel of Deadbeards or Fireworks Zombie as Z-Mech to hurt or destroy Turkey Rider. Avoid using Mixed-Up Gravedigger as Neptuna, however, as he will protect him from any harmful tricks and abilities during the Plants Play phase and remove any damage Turkey Rider has taken beforehand.

Against

Turkey Rider does not do too much harm to you on his own due to his mediocre stats. However, your opponent may take advantage of this and boost Turkey Rider, which forces you to either destroy it, or lose the game. Destroying it is easy, as any instant-kill cards like Squash can take care of it, but if you destroy Turkey Rider, your opponent obtains Leftovers, a very useful card, which is not good for you. To get around this, Bounce Turkey Rider to reset his stats and prevent your opponent from earning Leftovers.

If you are Citron or Rose, you can use Transmogrify to turn Turkey Rider into a different zombie, or in Rose's case, Goatify if his strength is the highest of all the zombies on the field. However, this is not recommended unless necessary, as both superpowers are much more useful for other stronger zombies.

Trivia

  • His description references Dolphin Rider, Walrus Rider and Kangaroo Rider, and how they all use animals as transportation.
    • Coincidentally, they all have the word "Rider" in their name, are all pet cards, and all but Dolphin Rider are also Imp cards.
  • He resembles Dodo Rider Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
    • His description is also similar to Dodo Rider Zombie's Almanac entry.
  • When Turkey Rider is played, the player can see that the turkey doesn't have any legs.
    • However, the turkey's legs may just be covered by Turkey Rider's stats.
