Eureka is Professor Brainstorm's premium legendary zombie signature superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Brainy and Crazy classes. It costs 1 to play, and its ability Conjures three non-superpower zombie cards, including token and event cards.
In the mini-boss battle and boss battle of the mission Brains in Danger!, Professor Brainstorm's deck contains 40 copies of Eureka.
Eureka originates from the Ancient Greek word εὕρηκα heúrēka, meaning "I have found (it)."
Its description is a reference to its ability.
- Classes: Brainy, Crazy
- Tribes: Mustache Science Superpower Trick
- Ability: Conjure any three cards.
- Set - Rarity: Premium - Legendary
Professor Brainstorm's ideas are brilliant... totally random, but brilliant.
- Cards Conjured by Eureka now say they are in their statistics.
This trick is extremely useful at the beginning of the game, due to its low cost and the ability to get any card, even those that are not in the Brainy or Crazy classes. Playing this trick in the early-game may give you powerful cards from the start of the game, including legendary cards. If this is the first superpower trick that comes to your hand, it is strongly recommended to play it immediately on the Zombie Tricks phase, unless there is a plant that needs to be countered quickly. However, be aware that the fact that you can also receive weaker and generally undesirable zombies, or zombies that do not help with their tribe like Zookeeper, so this card is generally luck-based. Professor Brainstorm can also get zombies that allow him to perform combos that are not normally accessible, such as Zombot Sharktronic Sub and The Chickening, or Zombot 1000 and Teleport.
You can also transform Interdimensional Zombie with this trick, as it is a science card. Also, because it is a mustache, it can be used in tandem with Mustache Waxer in order to get 1 brain from him. Since it Conjures 3 cards, it can also activate Dino-Roar thrice. However, the only Dino-Roar zombies that can take advantage of this are Tankylosaurus and Zombot Dinotronic Mechasaur, unless Professor Brainstorm gets other Dino-Roar zombies through other means, or other heroes obtain Eureka via Quasar Wizard or Thinking Cap. Also, it cannot synergize with Dr. Spacetime, meaning Professor Brainstorm has to obtain him from Eureka itself, unless he gets another from Thinking Cap or Quasar Wizard, Triplication, Cosmic Scientist, Summoning, Portal Technician, Zombot Dinotronic Mechasaur, Transformation Station and Evolutionary Leap, unless other heroes obtain Eureka from Thinking Cap or Quasar Wizard.
There isn't really a counter to Eureka, except to expect the unexpected. Since Eureka can Conjure any zombie card from the entire game, be prepared to counter any card in the game, especially legendary cards that might come out. However, Black-Eyed Pea and Sportacus will both activate their abilities when this is played, so those are good cards to have if you think your opponent will play this. Playing Forget-Me-Nuts, Brainana and Dark Matter Dragonfruit is a great way to stop Professor Brainstorm from using this superpower to get the card advantage in the early game.
- When played, the player can see Saturn and the Sun.
- Somehow, no other planets are seen, which is strange as there are five more between Saturn and the Sun.
- The player can also see them in the same position inside Dr. Spacetime's wardrobe.
