Plants vs. Zombies Wiki
Chompzilla will devour the battlefield if you let her! She loves to grow big, brawny Plant teammates and put their Strikethrough powers to work.

For other uses, see Chomper (disambiguation).

Chompzilla is a plant hero in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and the leader of the PvZH Mega-Grow Icon.pngMega-Grow and PvZH Solar Icon.pngSolar classes. Her signature superpower is Devour, which instantly destroys a zombie with the lowest health on the field. If there are 2 or more zombies with the lowest health, Chompzilla can decide which zombie to destroy.

She is the hero version of Chomper.



Chompzilla is based on Chomper, a major recurring plant in the Plants vs. Zombies series, who in turn is based on the Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula), with her colorization being reminiscent of Chomper's appearance in the original game.

Chompzilla's name, massive size, and destructive attitude are all based on the Japanese kaiju character Godzilla. The inclusion of a Godzilla based character in a comic book based game my be a reference to Godzilla's officially licensed comics produced by Marvel Comics.

Chompzilla's tentacles may either be based on Naval Piranha from the Yoshi series, or Biollante, a plant/human/dinosaur hybrid monster featured in the movie Godzilla vs. Biollante who shares many characteristics with Chompzilla, such as gender, appearance, and powers.

The name of Chompzilla's first strategy deck is a pun on War and Peace, a novel written by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy.


Hero description

She flosses after every meal and still, Zombie Breath is a real problem.

Strategies strategy

Chompzilla is always hungry for more Zombies to destroy with her Solar Tricks. Healing effect helps her stay alive while the Zombies keep dying.


Chompzilla's Mega-Grow and Solar classes allow her to generate lots of sun early on, then boost plants to overwhelm the opponent, especially with plants like Sunflower and Twin Sunflower as it will put the zombie hero in a dilemma; if they keep them alive, Chompzilla will get more sun to use on higher costing plants and tricks. If they put a zombie in front of them, they are most likely going to be destroyed. If they are threatened by zombies, destroy them instantly, boost their stats to make them survive the hit, or at least fight back harder before being destroyed.

Solar plants benefit greatly from playing Mega-Grow cards because many of them have useful traits and abilities, like PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough, healing, and instant destruction. With Chompzilla boosting their stats and making them do bonus attacks, they become more devastating against the opponent. On the other hand, Mega-Grow plants don't synergize with Solar cards very much, with the exception of healing cards like Geyser or 2nd-Best Taco of All Time, and are pretty independent of each other.

Chompzilla's advantage over other Solar heroes when using a healing deck is that she can make her Venus Flytraps generally much stronger by using Fertilize, or by using Plant Food to give them a smaller boost, but do damage and heal her instantly. She also has access to Geyser for some cheap mass-healing. Chompzilla can also use healing to boost Pepper M.D., which in turn can boost Potted Powerhouse.

Chompzilla, while not as powerful as Solar Flare in terms of aggro decks, is still powerful in her own right. Despite lacking soft removal cards like Berry Blast, Chompzilla can use moving cards such as Sweet Pea to get zombies out of water lanes. As previously stated, she can also buff up the Solar Class' PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough Cards using tricks like Fertilize and Plant Food. She can also incorporate Magnifying Grass into her aggro decks, which can serve as an effective finisher if Chompzilla has generated enough sun.

Chompzilla is probably the best hero to use Onion Rings with, the Solar class is full of plants that can greatly benefit from it, like Fume-Shroom , Morning Glory , Venus Flytrap and Sunflower. Not to mention she has the 0-Cost Lil' Buddy, which can be played in mass quantities to overwhelm your rival.

Chompzilla's weakness, however, is her lack of Amphibious plants. To prevent zombies from setting up in aquatic lanes, she can instantly destroy any possible threat with Whack-a-Zombie, Squash, Three-Headed Chomper, or Devour. She can also move them with Sweet Potato, Sweet Pea, Banana Peel, or Whipvine, because she is a Mega-Grow hero too.


Chompzilla has a deadly arsenal of Mega-Grow plants that can take you down in a few hits and Solar plants that can be very annoying to handle. Use Rocket Science, Cut Down to Size, or PvZH Deadly Icon.pngDeadly zombies to deal with her plants. Sending out threats in aquatic lanes is a good way to take a big chunk of Chompzilla's health and provide a distraction for a more powerful zombie somewhere else.

Try to swarm the field, as Chompzilla can easily pick zombies off if left alone. If you cannot swarm her, then try using high-damage cards to make Chompzilla's efforts to heal less effective.
