Galvanize is a super-rare zombie superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Beastly class. It costs 1 to play, and its ability gives a selected zombie +2/+2. Its plant counterpart is Embiggen.
It is based on the real meaning of galvanize, which means "to shock or excite someone, typically into taking action."
Its description is a reference to the motto, "To Protect and to Serve," which has been used by the Los Angeles Police Department since 1955. It also makes a play on two meanings of "serve": perform duties or services for another person or an organization (the meaning used in the motto), and present food or drink to someone (the meaning used in Galvanize's description).
- Class: Beastly
- Tribe: Superpower Trick
- Ability: A Zombie gets +2/+2.
- Rarity: Super-Rare
To protect and serve... brains.
There are multiple ways one can use this trick. It can be used to turn a weak zombie like a Skunk Punk into a moderate threat, ensure the survival of a useful zombie like Zookeeper, or turn big threats like Smashing Gargantuar or Vimpire into even bigger threats.
You can Bounce the zombie to return its status back to normal, as with all boosting tricks. However, you cannot do anything against this trick most of the time as Zombies play their tricks after plants.
- Its fireworks animation is very similar to Immorticia's animation (with fireworks) when she does 4 or more damage to the plant hero or plays a legendary zombie.
