Bandit Zombie (盗贼僵尸; pinyin: dàozéi jiāngshī) is a zombie encountered in Dark Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He drinks a potion that makes him invisible to both players and plants. The invisible effect also makes the zombie nearly impervious to damage. A Plantern reveals nearby Bandit Zombies.
Bandit Zombie is dressed like a thief. He wears a dark green colored robe that extends up to his elbows. For eyewear, he wears a black colored eye mask and his eyes are shaped like oblongs. Bandit Zombie wears a dark blue colored tattered shirt with straps on it, also, the left portion is torn up and exposes its bones slightly. The pouch on his left rib contains a potion that he typically uses for stealth purposes. His bones are also colored dark green and his shoes bear similar a color to its garments.

This zombie can be problematic, leaving the player no other choices besides using Plantern. Use a Plantern to prevent the Bandit Zombie from being invisible. Kill him quickly, as this zombie can disappear without you noticing. Another way to defeat him is to use Plant Food on Iceberg Lettuce or Saucer Squash to prevent the zombie from vanishing. Avoid using Torchwoods when this zombie is frozen by an Iceberg Lettuces or the delay will be undone, and this zombie may vanish quickly when thawed. Fortunately, this zombie is not immune to the Chili Bean or Hypno-shroom. so use it if the zombie is invisible and the player know where he's going.
- The only way to kill him while he is invisible is to use a Chili Bean or either of Cryo-shroom's Plant Food effects.
- He has a bone sticking out of his arm, which is most likely unintentional.
- The way Plantern's light turns this zombie visible again is similar to how Plantern's light shows the content of vases in Vasebreaker.
- If Bandit Zombie is carrying Plant Food, his stealth ability cannot hide him from the player, though other plants cannot target him either, unless other zombies trigger the plant to attack.
- When he is dead while still in a state of invisibility, his head would fall but he would still have a head. The same thing applied to his arm. This was fixed in the 1.3.3 update.
- He can still be teleported by Thyme Warp while he is invisible.
- This Zombie was planned to appear in Plants vs. Zombies 2 but was later scrapped.
