Super Mix Mode is a multiplayer game mode in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It is only accessible via the Mystery Portal inside the Town Hall (if it is open). This game mode features random game modes, and it features a random Crazy Setting(s) that players cannot remove, and they can only use specific classes assigned to them. This is a chance for players to try out variants from specific classes that they do not have yet, such as the Unicorn Chomper. Super Mix Mode can only be played with a limited period of time, like other modes of the Mystery Portal. The active Crazy Settings, playable classes, and available game modes change every time a Super Mix Mode event is live.

- If the player checks the "Cool Stats" menu after completing a game of Triple-F Frenzy, the "Heal Master" and "Assist Master" boasts are grayed out.
