- Not to be confused with Gargantuar Prime.
Gargantuar Mime is a colossal legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. He costs 5 to play, and has 5/7. He does not have any traits, and his ability makes him do a bonus attack when a plant or zombie not in the mime tribe does a bonus attack.
His name is a combination of "Gargantuar," the type of zombie he is, and "mime," the type of person he is based on.
His description is a reference to a mime's job when they perform and the occupation's stereotypical association with France, the latter of which could explain the baguette he uses to attack.
- Class: Brainy
- Tribes: Gargantuar Mime Zombie
- Traits: None

- Set - Rarity: Colossal - Legendary
The Gargantuar Mime groans like any other zombie. He just does it silently, and in French.
- Added to the game.
- ▲ Health change: 5 → 7
- ▲ Bug fixed: He now activates his ability when a non-Mine plant does a bonus attack.
This zombie allows any Brainy hero to overwhelm the opponent with bonus attacks, since Gargantuar Mime will do a bonus attack of his own every time a zombie does a bonus attack. He can also be used to punish opponents who also utilize bonus attacks, since his ability also accounts for plant bonus attacks. Hence, he can be a useful check for cards such as plants with the Double Strike trait, Template:PvZHLink, and Re-Peat Moss. You can also use him with Template:PvZH Link, which will give him the Untrickable trait, making him even harder to destroy.
You can also have him in a science deck, where you can spam many science zombies on the field and then play Gadget Scientist to overrun your opponent with bonus attacks, or in a Frenzy deck, since zombies with that trait will do a bonus attack if they destroy a plant, meaning Gargantuar Mime will do a bonus attack for each plant destroyed by a Frenzy zombie.
As he is a Gargantuar zombie, he can be paired with Wizard Gargantuar to give him Bullseye, where he can quickly wear down the opponent with bonus attacks if he is attacking from an undefended lane. You can also play him earlier with Gargologist or Template:PvZHLink, although only Rustbolt can do this normally. You can also give him Frenzy from Smashing Gargantuar or have Supernova Gargantuar destroy all copies of a plant he destroys, although only Immorticia can do this normally.
Just remember that his ability is completely useless if Wing-Nut is on the field, so it is best to get rid of it quickly before playing bonus attack cards. His ability also doesn't activate when another Gargantuar Mime or an Template:PvZHLink performs a bonus attack.
Stat-wise, he is an average zombie. However, he is very dangerous with Brainy heroes who utilize bonus attacks, especially Immortica and Rustbolt, both of whom also have Frenzy zombies. What makes him even more dangerous is that your own bonus attacks count towards his ability as well. So it is best to get rid of him before the opponent spams bonus attacks with cards such Template:PvZHLink, Shamrocket, and The Great Zucchini. You can also nullify his ability with Wing-Nut.
Since Imitater is a mime card, the player can boost him and make him perform bonus attacks without worrying about Gargantuar Mime also performing bonus attacks. However, it is only recommended to do this as a last resort because Imitater has low strength, and you cannot play any other plant later as any tricks used to boost his strength will be wasted when he transforms into another plant.
- He is one of the two cards in the mime tribe, the other being Imitater.
- Coincidentally, both were introduced in the Colossal Fossils update.
- He is the second zombie to benefit from both sides, the first being Cryo Yeti.
- Coincidentally, they are both legendary zombies that cost 5.
- He is the third Gargantuar card in the Brainy class, the first being Wizard Gargantuar and the second being Triplication.
- One of his idle animations is him pretending to be in an invisible box, which is a stereotypical mime trick.
