Cardio Zombie is a zombie that can only be found in Battlez in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He will advance to the 7th column when spawned and will crush any plant with his treadmill. After reaching the 7th column, he will throw brains at his fellow zombies, significantly increasing their health and speed. After a while, he will leave the lawn.
Advances to a set spot on the board, then tosses buffing brains at other zombies until he's chased away or retreats on his own.
Cardio Zombie is all about health, healthiness and healthy lifestyles. He refuses to consume carbs, downing nothing but high-protein brains for every meal. In his opinion, other zombies really need to up their game. NO EXCUSES!
Cardio Zombie is a major threat as it will boost other zombies, making them even more dangerous. Since Cardio Zombie has a extremely high amount of health, it will reward very many points in Battlez.
Cardio Zombie is immune to many effects, including explosions, hypnosis, stunning, knockback, shrinking, freezing, gas clouds and sun infection. The only way to slow Cardio Zombie down is to use Shadow Peashooter, Kernel-pult or chilling plants. Cardio Zombie will also not activate plants such as Shrinking Violet and Primal Potato Mine.
Depending on your Battlez league, defeating Cardio Zombie may not be possible. In lower leagues, Squash is a viable response, but in higher leagues, Cardio Zombie has too much health to be able to be defeated.
