To me, these are the most awesome plants! In order, they are:

1st: The Gloom-shroom:

  • Advantages:
    • Can severely damages all zombies around it with an attack rate of 4 normal damage per second. Perfectly used with Garlics, Movement-restricting plants (Snow Pea, Kernel-pult,e.t.c), Defensive plants (Wall-nut, Tall-nut, Pumpkin).
  • Disadvantages:
    • Medium-high cost, especially in Day, Pool and Roof levels.
    • Short range.
    • Can be smashed by Vehicle Zombies, Gargantuars and Giga-Gargantuars if they appear in the same lane as the Gloom-shroom or killed by Jack-in-the-Box explosions.

2nd: The Winter Melon:

  • Advantages:
    • Can deals heavy damage and slows down groups of zombies. A Winter Melon can severely weakens a Gargantuar if planted far enough.
  • Disadvantages:
    • Very high cost.
    • Slow attack rate.
    • Zombonis are immune to the slowing effect.

3rd: The Cob Cannon:

  • Advantages:
    • Acts just like a reusable Cherry Bomb.
    • Can't be targeted by Bungee Zombies.
  • Disadvantages:
    • Highest sun cost in the game. (100 x 2 + 500 (+ 25 x 2 if on Lily Pads or Flower Pots))
    • Can't be protected by Pumpkins.
    • Uses up 2 spaces.
    • Long time between cobs' recharge.
    • Can be eaten like normal plants.

4th: The Gatling Pea:

  • Advantages:
    • Can be bought after level 3-4 (the first upgrade attacking plant).
    • High attack rate.
  • Disadvantages:
    • Non-AoE plant.
    • Very weak if not used with Torchwood.
    • High cost.

5th: The Doom-shroom:

  • Advantages:
    • Cheaper than Cherry Bomb and Jalapeno (don't count the Coffee Bean).
    • Very large exploding area (about 5x6).
  • Disadvantages:
    • Higher cost in Day, Pool and Roof levels.
    • Leaves a crater that can't be planted on.

Those are my favorite plants.

So what's yours?
