Captain Flameface is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 3 to play, and has 2/4. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability gives all pirate zombies on the field, including him, the Strikethrough trait. This ability persists until all Captain Flamefaces are removed from the field.
His description references how his beard is burnt, and it’s also a reference to Captain Flameface’s Stickerbook description in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
His Strikethrough trait is a reference to his Piercing Peg Shot's ability to pierce through multiple targets in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.

Captain Flameface's ability is really useful by himself as well as with other pirates. You can create pirate synergy with Swashbuckler Zombie as any pirate that attacks while surviving will get +1/+1 while doing damage to plants and your opponent unless they get a Super-Block. This also works well with Imp Commander as he can attack through Team-Up plants and draw a card unless the plant hero gets a Super-Block.
Impfinity can use this zombie with Imp-Throwing Gargantuar to land 5 damage on the plant hero. Super Brainz and Huge-Gigantacus can pair him with Shieldcrusher Viking, which will guarantee 7 unblockable damage to the plant hero if he manages to attack while also emptying their block meter, which is better than Impfinity's strategy. Brain Freeze can use this zombie with Interstellar Bounty Hunter, as she will strike through all plants in her lane and hit the plant hero; if she manages to destroy a plant, she can do more damage in her lane and draw more cards.
Captain Flameface himself does not do a lot of damage but can be threatening, as he can damage multiple weak plants in front of him. He is at his most dangerous when paired with other pirates like Imp Commander, Shieldcrusher Viking and especially Swashbuckler Zombie, which allows the zombie hero to draw cards, deplete your health quicker, or give boosts to pirates, respectively. Fortunately, tricks like Grave Buster or Whack-a-Zombie can destroy him easily.
- He is the first variant of a class from Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 that has already appeared in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, in this case Captain Deadbeard.
- Captain Flameface was originally going to be in the Crazy class, have 3/3, and give all pirates Overshoot 2 when he became an event card.
