Blowgun Imp is a colossal rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 5 to play and has 3/3. He has the Deadly and Strikethrough traits, and his Zombie Evolution ability gives a selected plant the Bounce effect.
His name is a combination of "blowgun," the weapon he is holding, and "Imp," the type of zombie he is.
The leaves and flower on his head are a form of camouflage, a tactic commonly used by many organisms to conceal themselves.
His Deadly trait may be a reference to how some cultures dip the tip of darts in arrow poisons, while his strikethrough trait references the fact that toxic darts are also sharp enough to penetrate targets.
The "Inhale Gun Imp", while never appearing in the game, is a funny reference to how the Inhalegun Imp was not successful, as he most likely poisoned himself with his darts instead.

Alone, this is a powerful card, having both Deadly and Strikethrough. You can use this to bust through a line of tough plants easily. His Evolution ability is useful as well, turning him into a Pogo Bouncer with slightly better stats and two dangerous traits. However, do not activate his ability if Jelly Bean is on the field as that plant gets boosted when anything is bounced. But you can choose to bounce Jelly Bean to solve this problem, or use another card to bounce Jelly Bean later, as the Sneaky class has plenty of bouncing options.
Because of his Imp tribe, you can use this with Imp Commander to draw extra cards. Since he is also in the dancing tribe, you can use him with Flamenco Zombie, Aerobics Instructor, and Headhunter, but this can be only normally done as Impfinity.
Playing him in Laser Base Alpha is a waste of space, as he already has both traits provided by the environment. Toxic Waste Imp's ability will be useless as well since Blowgun Imp already has Deadly. But he won't work alone, so the Toxic Waste Imp can be still used to support other imps.
This card has low stats, so something simple like Berry Blast or Whack-a-Zombie can take him out. The real danger lies in his traits, which make him nigh impossible to stall with plants. Try to dispose of him quickly, or he will wreak havoc on your defenses. Fortunately, he is quite expensive, so your opponent probably won't have much to back him up. But do not bounce him, as the Sneaky class has plenty of cheap zombies and he will be able to bounce another plant when replayed.
- He and Kitchen Sink Zombie are the only cards naturally possessing the green star trait icon: .
- He shares animations and voice clips with Loudmouth.
- His textures include leaves similar to those seen in Doubled Mint's attacking animation, and a flower similar to that on Cactus.
- His attacking animation projectile is also the same spike that Cactus and Cattail use for theirs.
