Nothing Wrong With Staring at a Phone

Cell Phone Zombie's splash screen

Cell Phone Zombie is an Armored theater Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3, which you first encounter at Floor 6 of Devour Tower. She shields herself with her cell phone. Once her cell phone breaks, she will become enraged and will move and attack faster than before.

Origins

Her name is taken from the card of the same name from Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, but has a drastically different appearance than her namesake.

Her ability to shield herself with her cell phone and become enraged once it is broken is reminiscent of Newspaper Zombie's ability from both Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2.

Her ability to rage once her cell phone is broken is a reference to Internet addiction disorder (IAD), a condition where a person addicted to the internet.

Strategies

This can be a dangerous zombie, so make sure to get rid of it as soon as you can. Its high damage without its cell phone can result in a highly damaged defense. Try to use fast attacking plants, as a slow attacking plant or a melee plant probably will get eaten by said zombie.

Trivia

  • In the Pre-Alpha, her hair was blonde, but in a later update on the Pre-Alpha, her hair was changed to more of a black color. (even though her preview image still had blonde hair.)
  • Like the Newspaper Zombie, when she gets her phone destroyed, her speed gets faster, but instead of the eating speed getting faster, her eating damage gets higher.
  • She makes an angry screeching sound once she gets mad and when she bites a plant after her phone breaks.
  • Currently, she is the only zombie who still uses placeholder dirt particles and butter splash sound at the same time after she becomes defeated.
