Card description

He has Super Brainz stickers all over his binder.



If placed when you have 7BrainPvZH and have not lost any health, he potentially becomes the toughest non-boosted zombie (as he gains 20HeartPvZH, making him reach 21HeartPvZH). Take in mind that this zombie could potentially be extremely weak if the player's hero is badly damaged, being as low as 2HeartPvZH (the lowest possible health for this zombie).

The best hero to use him is The Smash, as he has access to many Gargantuar zombies, and the fact he has the most healing methods of any zombie hero. Nurse Gargantuar can easily get some health back, or in a pinch, Nibble can get some health back as well.

Playing as Rustbolt, Wizard Gargantuar can give him PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye as well, allowing him to smash through plants that block his way and land a strike at the hero without charging the hero's block meter.

Being from the PvZH Hearty IconHearty class, players who use him have access to healing cards such as Medic or Heroic Health. If your hero is damaged, it is recommended to play these before you play Wannabe Hero to maximize his ability. If your hero is at or near full health, play him as fast as possible. This can easily be done with Gargologist, since it will allow this to be used on the fifth turn. You can use Flag Zombies to play him earlier in the game before your hero takes more damage.

Avoid using Mixed-Up Gravedigger when Wannabe Hero is on the field as he will reset his health, allowing the plants to damage the hero before he is revealed from the Gravestone, causing him to have less health.


You must use plants with more than 6 health to defend against him since he has PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy which lets him plow through plants with less health. He can also be dealt with using any combos that neutralize their target regardless of health, the most effective ones being Bounce and PvZH Frozen IconFreeze. Other counters include tricks that destroy zombies instantly regardless of health such like Lawnmower, Squash, Devour, or tricks that transform Wannabe Hero into something weaker like Transmogrify or Goatify.

If the player can not use the above methods, the player can use two ways to counter the Wannabe Hero, the two being high offense and high defense. High offense involves deploying plants that have enough strength to destroy Wannabe Hero in only a few turns, such as a powered Super-Phat Beets. High defense, on the other hand, involves using tough plants to have them tank the damage and steadily wear down Wannabe Hero, such as Soul Patch. Just make sure that he does not successfully destroy a plant, as this will allow him to attack again, potentially setting off a fatal chain reaction if most of the player's plants are weak enough.

One of the most deadly situations this zombie can be used is in missions. For example, missions when the opposing zombie hero has more health than usual. This can lead to a Wannabe Hero having over 21HeartPvZH. Using the strategies above is the player's best method for destroying him.




  • His description and overall appearance references Super Brainz.
    • Ironically, he cannot actually be summoned directly by Super Brainz, due to him being in the PvZH Hearty IconHearty class while Super Brainz is a PvZH Brainy IconBrainy/PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky hero. Despite this, he can still be summoned via Portal Technician.
    • He even appears on Super Brainz's ally pack despite not being able to be directly summoned by him.
  • If one looks closely, the Imp on him has nose holes in his mask. However, he does not have nose holes in his mask.
  • Jurassic Bully's costume in one of the Plants vs. Zombies 2 Piñata Parties is that of Wannabe Hero, albeit without the Imp riding on his back.
  • He is the only legendary zombie that appears in the Multiplayer menu.
