For other uses, see Barrel Zombie (disambiguation).

Barrel Roller Zombie is a premium rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky class. He costs 4BrainPvZH to play and has 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. He has the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait, and his ability makes a Swabbie on the lanes adjacent to him when he is destroyed, unless those lanes are occupied. His closest plant counterpart is Banana Split.

Origins

Barrel Roller Zombie2

He is based on the zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2 with the same name and appearance.

His PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait is a reference to him being able to crush and instantly destroy plants in Plants vs. Zombies 2, and his ability to make Swabbies when he is destroyed is another reference to him having the ability to make Imp Pirate Zombies when his barrel is destroyed.

His description implies that Gargantuars are the most affordable way to transport Imps.

Strategies

With

Having 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH for 4BrainPvZH, Barrel Roller Zombie isn't a very good attacker. And while he does have the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait, Smelly Zombie is a better alternative for a PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombie, as he is cheaper and has more health along with the Gravestone trait, meaning he is immune to all plant cards except for anti-gravestone cards. So instead, Barrel Roller Zombie can find his place as a defensive PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombie, as the Swabbies may block attacks from strong plants that are close together, even on aquatic lanes as Swabbie has the Amphibious trait.

Ideally, the best lane to have him on is the fourth lane, as the aquatic lane will be next door, so when he is destroyed, a Swabbie will be made on the aquatic lane. This could offer potential backup on the aquatic lane against plants like Admiral Navy Bean; even if that is not the case, having a zombie attacking on the aquatic lane can be pretty stressful for some opponents.

As Impfinity, Barrel Roller Zombie goes well in a rush deck for Valkyrie, as he could be used in order to destroy a strong plant during combat, then he will be destroyed and leave the two Swabbies who will also be destroyed sooner or later, and have Valkyrie get +6StrengthPvZH. Similarly, Unlife of the Party will get +3StrengthPvZH/+3HeartPvZH assuming both Swabbies are made successfully.

Because him and the Swabbies made by him are pirate zombies, he can be used with Swashbuckler Zombie to boost all three of them, or Captain Flameface to give all three of them the PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough trait. And while Barrel Roller Zombie isn't an Imp himself, his Swabbies are, allowing him to fit in an Imp deck with Toxic Waste Imp and Imp Commander too.

Against

Due to him having the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait and low health, there is little to no reason to use a strong plant against it. Instead, if you have the opportunity, destroy him indirectly with tricks, such as Berry Blast, as he will be destroyed without making you lose a potentially useful plant. Plants with the Splash Damage trait are also preferable, as they can hit him even if they are not on his lane. Melon-Pult and Snapdragon would be the best examples, as their Splash Damage is just enough to destroy Barrel Roller Zombie.

Trivia

  • The barrel is smaller than the counterpart in Plants vs. Zombies 2, as the barrel here is the size of his head, while the one in Plants vs. Zombies 2 is twice the size of him.
  • When he is destroyed, his barrel will break on his head, but the Imps that come out appear as regular Imps instead of Swabbies. Once going into the adjacent lanes, however, the Imps appear as Swabbies.
