Doesn't Need Ranch to Dunk Plants

Basketball Zombie's splash screen

Basketball Zombie is a Ballpark Frank minion Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3. When she first appears on the field, she will act like a Browncoat Zombie. When she reaches half of her health, she will throw an Imp down the lane she is in then speed up.

Origins

As her name suggests, she was based off a basketball player.

Her ability to throw an Imp once she reaches half of her health was referencing to how many basketball players throw a basketball into the ring to obtain points in the game.

Strategies

Basketball Zombie is only really dangerous once she throws her Imp into your defenses, which causes her to speed up. Slowing plants (such as Snow Pea) are recommended, since they can slow down her while she's running. The Imp meanwhile can be flung back by Chard Guard. Chilling type plants such as Ragweed can also work, as they will do extra damage against her; Ragweed in particular will also keep Basketball Zombie at a distance with its knockback, and can knock the Imp out of your defenses.

However, the situation will be more hectic if her Mega version appears on the field. Area effect plants such as Snapdragon can help cover areas that the Imps might land on; Ragweed can help push the Imps out of your defenses if they get too close.
