Wing-Nut is a galactic super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. It costs 4SunPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability prevents all zombies on the field from doing bonus attacks. This ability persists until all Wing-Nuts are removed from the field. Its zombie counterpart is Bonus Track Buckethead.

Origins

It is based on the Pterocarya, often called wingnuts in English, which are trees in the walnut family Juglandaceae.

Its description references one of the meanings of "wing-nut," a mad or crazy person.

Strategies

With

This plant has very good stats for its cost; a 3StrengthPvZH/7HeartPvZH for 4SunPvZH. What makes this plant even better is that it disables all bonus attacks from zombies, making cards like Lurch for Lunch, Electrician, Trickster, and PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy cards like Smashing Gargantuar and Maniacal Laugh either useless or less effective (for PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy cards, they will not be able to attack again even if they have destroyed a plant). Its base strength grants it immunity to most instant-kill cards except for Locust Swarm, B-flat, Slammin' Smackdown, and Knockout, and its high health makes it quite tanky as well.

In other words, this plant is effective against PvZH Brainy IconBrainy heroes that rely on bonus attacks, along with PvZH Beastly IconBeastly and PvZH Hearty IconHearty heroes that have certain cards with the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait. However, this also means that this plant is useless against PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky and/or PvZH Crazy IconCrazy zombies as they don't do bonus attacks or have PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy.

Each hero has their own ways of using this plant well:

Solar heroes can also use Geyser (Wall-Knight and Chompzilla only) or 2nd-Best Taco of All Time to allow it to last longer, as it has a large amount of health.

Against

Stat-wise, this plant is already troublesome enough, due to its immunity to Rocket Science, Rolling Stone and Weed Spray, as well as its durability against damaging tricks such as Bungee Plumber. Knockout is the best option, but should it be unavailable or if Wing-Nut's strength is boosted, you could reduce its strength with tricks like Shrink Ray first, although if you are in such a situation, your opponent will most likely have a way to reboost it easily. The fact that it disables bonus attacks means that you will have to most likely sacrifice one of your zombies to destroy it, as you cannot use bonus attacks to destroy it. Keep that in mind that its ability can also weaken PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy zombies as its ability prevents additional attacks via said trait.

If you are a Beastly hero, a cheap way to destroy this plant is to use Squirrel Herder due to its nut tribe. However, be careful against Rose or Wall-Knight, as Rose can use Spyris to see whether a Squirrel Herder was played, possibly bouncing her Wing-Nut with Rescue Radish or bouncing Squirrel Herder with Grave Mistake, along with potentially wasting your card, while Wall-Knight can outright destroy her with Grave Buster.

When playing as Super Brainz, be careful when using Carried Away as his superpower only allows a zombie to move if Wing-Nut is on the field.

The best way to deal with this plant is to use instant-kill tricks like Locust Swarm, or to Bounce it with cards like Pogo Bouncer to negate Wing-Nut's ability. You can also play Landscaper to lower Wing-Nut's strength and then use Rolling Stone or Weed Spray to destroy it completely. And if all else fails, use PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies to destroy Wing-Nut or a zombie that can do a lot of damage to it. If you want to normally destroy this plant, play a zombie that has at least 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH like Drum Major.

Its ability becomes less effective against Sneaky and Crazy heroes as they are the only classes that don't have access to bonus attack cards, especially Impfinity, who leads both. Crazy heroes can also use Exploding Fruitcake to destroy it as long as its health hasn't been boosted, although your opponent may get a card advantage.
