Plants vs. Zombies Wiki

Go-Nuts are an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Smarty Icon.pngSmarty class. They cost 3SunPvZH.png to play and have 2StrengthPvZH.png/2HeartPvZH.png.

They have the Team-Up trait, and their ability gives all Team-Up plants, including them, +1StrengthPvZH.png every time a Team-Up plant is played. This ability stacks with each Go-Nuts on the field and persists until all Go-Nuts are removed from the field. Their closest zombie counterpart is Zookeeper.

They were introduced in update 1.18.13, along with Transfiguration, Witch Hazel, Haunted Pumpking, Ketchup Mechanic, Fraidy Cat, Sneezing Zombie, Exploding Fruitcake, Unexpected Gifts, and Frankentuar.


Real-life Prunus dulcis (almonds)

Juglans regia, the plant Tall-nut is based on

The Tall-nut from Plants vs Zombies 2, where the design of the Tall-nut is from

Real-life acorns, in which Tornacorn is based on

They are based on cheerleaders, people who participate in cheerleading, an act of cheering for their team as a form of encouragement.

Their name comes from the phrase "go nuts," meant to describe behaving in a crazy fashion, or as a way of letting someone do something. It is a double meaning with the theme of cheerleading where cheers often say "go" followed by the team name, which in this case, is nuts as they often have the Team-Up trait.

Their design includes a Plants vs. Zombies 2 Tall-nut, an almond (Prunus dulcis), and a Tornacorn. They are depicted to resemble a cheerleading squad with their leaves and dresses, suggesting that "Go-Nuts" is used as a cheerleading phrase here to boost the morale of other plants in the game. Their description is also written as their cheerleading line, following the aforementioned theme of moral support.

Update history

Update 1.18.13

  • Added to the game.



Statwise, Go-Nuts has low stats for their cost. However, they can make Team-Up plants hit exceptionally hard thanks to their ability. Since they have Team-Up themselves, you can play any plant in front of them to prevent zombie attacks from destroying Go-Nuts.

Being in the Smarty class, a bean deck can be a great deck for Go-Nuts as most beans, like Admiral Navy Bean, have Team-Up. All Smarty heroes can use this plant with Laser Cattail, boosting him by +2StrengthPvZH.png/+1HeartPvZH.png from both their abilities when you play a Team-Up plant on Laser Cattail's lane.

Each hero has their own ways of using this card effectively:

  • Citron and Beta-Carrotina have the most Team-Up plants out of all Smarty heroes, meaning they can easily spam Team-Up plants to achieve a massive boost in strength and increasing their survivability against Rolling Stone and Weed Spray. Since they are a nut plant, they can use Smackadamia to boost Go-Nuts' health or Mirror-Nut to deter their opponent from damaging Go-Nuts. They can also allow nut plants to be immune to Weed Spray if they manage to reach 3 or more strength.
  • Green Shadow can use this card as a way to activate Potted Powerhouse's ability more easily. She can also protect hordes of Team-Up plants from zombie tricks with Umbrella Leaf, which is also a Team-Up plant.
  • Rose can use this card in conjunction with Sunflower, Sun-Shroom, Twin Sunflower, and Solar Winds to boost their strength, in addition to using it in her flower deck alongside Power Flower and Briar Rose for healing and destruction.
  • Nightcap can use Mushroom Grotto and spam many plants in the environment to make many Puff-Shrooms, boosting all the Puff-Shrooms' strength easily, although they will go down easily due to their low health. He can also play Go-Nuts in Pair Pearadise to make another Go-Nuts, boosting Team-Up plants by +2StrengthPvZH.png every time they are played.

Go-Nuts' weakness is their inability to boost health, meaning that while your squad of Team-Up plants will hit hard, they won't excel very much at surviving combat, supported by the fact that many Team-Up plants in the Smarty class have low health. While Citron, Beta-Carrotina, and Green Shadow can easily protect Go-Nuts or boost their stats (not to mention the former two have high-health Team-Up plants too), Rose and Nightcap will have to resort to heavy destruction.

Beware if you are facing a Beastly hero, as they have access to Squirrel Herder due to their nut tribe.


You can treat this plant as Zookeeper that benefits Team-Up plants. Since they do have low health, damaging cards like Bungee Plumber can destroy them with ease. Once a ton of Team-Up plants are played, you can use Rocket Science or Cut Down to Size to pick on the biggest threats.

Or, you can play mass-damaging cards like The Chickening, Barrel of Deadbeards, Gas Giant, or Fireworks Zombie, but this strategy is ineffective if your opponent starts boosting the Team-Up Plants, unless Zombot Sharktronic Sub is also on the field. And if you are against Citron or Beta-Carrotina, be sure to pack instant kills to destroy any Wall-Nuts that can protect Go-Nuts and your opponent.

Squirrel Herder is also the best solution, as she can destroy them due to them being in the nut tribe. But watch out for Grave Buster. This is provided you are facing Citron and Beta-Carrotina.

  • This is the second appearance of Tall-Nut to appear in the game, the first being on Grass Knuckles' battle arena.
  • Their design is similar to that of Mixed Nuts, as both of them consist of three nut plants together as one card.
    • Coincidentally, their abilities both revolve around Team-Up plants.
