Tater Toss is Spudow's premium legendary plant signature superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Kabloom and Guardian classes. It costs 1 to play, and its ability makes a Hothead on a selected lane.
Its name is a portmanteau of "tater tots," referring to the fact that it makes a Hothead, and "toss," referring to its animation.

Since a Hothead is just a stronger version of Potato Mine, it is better for the player to save this superpower for bigger opponents, and use a regular Potato Mine on zombies that have 2 health or less. Hothead can be used to block and heavily damage powerful zombies during the late-game, like Trickster and Shieldcrusher Viking, or even in the early-game, such as an Evolved Jurassic Fossilhead on turn 2. Combining this with Potato Mine is also a good idea.
It also synergizes with Astro-Shroom since it counts as a plant being played. However, it cannot synergize with Muscle Sprout, meaning Spudow has to get Muscle Sprout from Seedling, Reincarnation, Molekale, Transfiguration and Petal-Morphosis, unless other heroes obtain Tater Toss from Bird of Paradise.
If Spudow uses this, play a weak zombie in its lane so one of your important zombies doesn't take damage or get destroyed. However, this will likely not be the case, as this is typically used to take out a strong zombie after it was played. Most likely, the only options to counter this is to boost the zombie's health, play a moving trick like Smoke Bomb or Terrify, move Hothead out of the way with Sumo Wrestler or Rodeo Gargantuar, or protect the zombie with Escape through Time.
Single player AIs will play this almost immediately, which can help you waste the ability if you place a weak zombie.
