|Berry Angry being played|
It is based on a cranberry, the edible berry of a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs or trailing vines in the subgenus Oxycoccus of the genus Vaccinium.
Its name is a portmanteau of the phrase "very angry," referring to its appearance and sound, and "berry," the type of plant it is based on.
Its description makes a play on the word "bury," using "berry" instead. It also makes a play on words between the phrase "that's the last straw," meaning someone is fed up with something, usually getting extremely angry as a result, and "strawberry," a type of berry.

Just like any trick that affects all plants at once, Berry Angry is most effective when the field is filled with plants. Since plants can have up to 10 fighters on the field due to their unique Team-Up trait, plants with Team-Up are recommended with this card, whether you play them yourself, or get them with cards like Mushroom Grotto and Shroom for Two. As Captain Combustible, you can easily boost Potted Powerhouse in your hand by playing Berry Angry when there are many plants on the field.
Berry Angry can also be very helpful to boost plants with certain traits such as Bullseye (Spudow only), Strikethrough (Solar Flare only) or Double Strike (Captain Combustible only), or those that have good abilities such as Re-Peat Moss. This will take advantage of their traits or abilities to make them more dangerous.
A noteworthy thing if your hero is Spudow: if you have plants with no strength, Spineapple, and Berry Angry at the same time in your deck, he should play Spineapple first, THEN Berry Angry, as Spineapple only boosts plants with no strength and Berry Angry will boost everything. They also stack, so keep this in mind should an opportunity presents itself. Spudow also has access to Guardian plants, with many having the Team-Up trait, so Berry Angry can be more effective.
If you made 8 or more sun and decide to play Berry Angry and Doom-Shroom on the same turn, Berry Angry should not be used before Doom-Shroom as the latter can destroy plants boosted by Berry Angry. Instead, try to play Doom-Shroom before Berry Angry to minimize the potential damage of Doom-Shroom.
Since Berry Angry only increases plants' strength but not health, you can still destroy them without any extra difficulty, although the zombies facing them are most likely to be destroyed. Just be careful if you are against Captain Combustible, as he may be boosting Potted Powerhouse.
