Suburban Almanac Entry


Regular garden-variety zombie

This zombie loves brains. Can't get enough. Brains, brains, brains, day in and night out. Old and stinky brains? Rotten brains? Brains Clearly past their prime? Doesn't matter. Regular zombie wants 'em.


The regular zombie will eat a plant, unlike most zombies, except Dr. Zomboss, Gargantuar, Zomboni, Squash Zombie and Catapult Zombie.


A normal shooting plant (Peashooter, Cactus, etc) will shoot the zombie and takes ten hits to kill. Instant kills, such as the Tangle Kelp ($25) will strangle it to the water. An Ice-shroom ($75) will freeze them on screen, along with him, so it's very common. Butter will stun the zombie. An explosion (like a Cherry Bomb that costs $150) will kill it in a hit. Using a heavy damage plant, like a Winter Melon (upgrade for the Melon-pult) will kill it quickly.


You can get a zombie figure if you buy the Game of the Year Edition from a store, like Target.

There is also a Zombie plush toy. You can get it from claw machines or store.


  • In the DS version, the zombie chews the plant seven times to kill it, while in the non-Nintendo versions, he chews the plant six times.
