Cob Cannon is a colossal legendary plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Solar Icon.pngSolar class. He costs 6SunPvZH.png to play and has 6StrengthPvZH.png/6HeartPvZH.png.

He does not have any traits, and his ability gives zombies on his lane and the lanes adjacent to him -1StrengthPvZH.png/-1HeartPvZH.png when he is played, while his Team-Up Evolution ability instantly destroys a selected zombie. His closest zombie counterpart is Primordial Cheese Shover.

He is based on the plant in Plants vs. Zombies with the same name and appearance. However, based on the fact that his front wheels are smaller than his rear wheels, and that his corn cob points upwards rather than laying flat when idle, he resembles Corn Mortar, a plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, more than the original Cob Cannon.

His Evolution ability references his status of upgrade plant in Plants vs. Zombies, where he was only plantable on top of two adjacent Kernel-pults on the same lane. It specifically requiring a Team-Up plant may be so because Kernel-Pult in this game has Team-Up, the trait Cob Cannon can Evolve on. And finally, it being an instant-kill is a reference to its animation being Cob Cannon's method of attack in the main series. which is typically used as an instant-kill.

His description is a reference to the quote, "One team, one dream," which comes from the book One Team One Dream: The Story of the Greatest Team in History, a fact-based account of the 1997 Virginia baseball champions, the William Byrd Terriers. The full quote in the book is, "This group of individuals is going to come together as one team, with one dream. One team, one dream."

Update history

Update 1.22.12

  • Added to the game.

Update 1.24.6

  • Animation change: Legendary shine added.



Cob Cannon has average stats for his cost. However, both his abilities are very useful and make this plant worth it. Being in the same class and having the same sun cost, in both its additional abilities and raw stats, it is better than Smashing Pumpkin and rivals Three-Headed Chomper.

His normal ability allows you to weaken a group of zombies here and next door, or even destroy zombies with 1HeartPvZH.png, meaning he can be used to deal with the aquatic lane, especially for Solar Flare and Chompzilla, since they lack ways to deal with said lane effectively. The stat reduction also means he can be used alongside cards such as Whack-a-Zombie, Chomper, and Toadstool.

His Evolution ability allows you to take control of your opponent by destroying any of their zombies and leaving a 6StrengthPvZH.png/6HeartPvZH.png plant on the field. To activate his Evolution ability, you need a Team-Up plant, which should not be much of an issue as the Solar class has several Team-Up cards such as Sunflower, Solar Winds (which make Sunflowers), and Twin Sunflower, not to mention those from other classes such as Puff-Shroom, Torchwood, and Wall-Nut.

If you are playing as Rose or Wall-Knight, you can take this one step further and actually get Cob Cannon on the aquatic lane by playing him on a Team-Up plant with Amphibious such as Laser Cattail, Admiral Navy Bean, and Water Chestnut, or give a Team-Up plant said trait via Lily Pad (although playing him on the aquatic lane is a bit of a waste of his normal ability under normal circumstances.)

His ability is also especially useful against zombies with UntrickableAltBig.pngUntrickable, especially ones that boast massive stats like Jurassic Fossilhead, as most instant-kill cards are tricks.

If you are playing as Rose, you can replay him with Rescue Radish and another team-up plant to reset his stats and reactivate his abilities. However, unless you want to use it against an untrickable target, it would be better to use Squash since it costs less and being a trick, does not require another plant to function.


There is nothing you can do about his two abilities, but you can spread out your zombies across the field to reduce his normal ability's effectiveness and make all zombies equally threatening to put your opponent in a dilemma. You can also play Gravestone zombies to negate both of his abilities, but this strategy is risky to pull off against Wall-Knight as he has specialized anti-gravestone cards.

As for Cob Cannon himself, any powerhouse, instant-kill trick or Deadly zombies will do. However, remember that his normal ability weakens your zombies' strength, so Crazy heroes may suffer a bit more. Do not Bounce him, as he can be replayed and destroy another zombie, unless you are able to win the game instantly by doing so.

  • Prior to update 1.24.6, Cob Cannon's targeting message was bugged. Instead of displaying a proper short description, it instead displayed "!#Cob Cannon_Targeting#!".
  • Prior to update 1.24.6, he and Gatling Pea did not have the legendary shine effect.
  • He is the only Evolution card that requires a fighter with a specified trait in order to activate his Evolution ability. Other Evolution cards require either any fighter in general, or a fighter within a specified tribe.
  • There is currently a glitch which happens when Reincarnation transforms from Cob Cannon into any other plant. When it happens, Cob Cannon proceeds to launch butter at the newly transformed card, as if Reincarnation was an entity of her own.
