For other uses, see Conehead Zombie (disambiguation).

Conehead Zombies and their world-themed variants are zombies with roadcones on their head for protection. While they are relatively easy to defeat, they are slightly more difficult to kill than both the Flag Zombie and the ordinary Zombie. They have somewhat normal health, but they can only be directly hurt once the roadcone on their head takes enough damage and falls off.


Normal Conehead Zombies first appear in Player's House - Day 3. They also have variants in each different area; Conehead Mummy in Ancient Egypt, Conehead Pirate in Pirate SeasConehead Cowboy in Wild West, Future Conehead Zombie in Far Future, Conehead Peasant in Dark Ages, Pompadour Conehead and Bikini Conehead in Big Wave Beach, Cave Conehead Zombie in Frostbite Caves, Conehead Adventurer Zombie in Lost City, Neon Conehead in Neon Mixtape Tour, Jurassic Conehead in Jurassic Marsh, Conehead Kongfu Zombie and Conehead Monk Zombie in Kongfu WorldConehead Pilot Zombie in Sky City, Conehead Labor Zombie in Steam Ages, Conehead Aristocrat Zombie in Renaissance Age and Conehead Samurai Zombie in Heian Age.

Conehead Zombies absorb 570 damage per shot, and their appearance changes upon an absorption of 130, 260 and 370 when his roadcone is destroyed, and 470 normal damage shots before dying at 570 damage per shot.

Even though he takes more hits than the regular Zombie, the zombie is not at all difficult to stop. A two Peashooters, or a Repeater can take him down easily. He is weak to almost all strategies, so your basic setup should take him out. However, do not underestimate him, as he can be a threat in the early levels and the beginning of the game where you do not have access to many powerful plants. A single Peashooter can be sufficient to kill one if the Conehead Zombie is far enough away, but two or three work better, especially if there are multiple zombies that need to be killed.

  • In the Almanac, prior to the 2.5.1 update, the Conehead Peasant had a bone sticking out of his arm.
    • However, this also currently happens with the Conehead Adventurer Zombie.
  • Neon Conehead is called "Neon Conehead Zombie" in his Almanac. This is in contrast to most other Conehead variations in the game, where their Almanac entries usually leave out the "zombie" in their name, with the exception of some zombies such as the Future or Adventurer zombies.
  • Jurassic Conehead has "Hungry" speed in the Almanac, unlike other variants. This trait is shared with Jurassic Zombie.
  • "Dr. Unlivingstone" in Conehead Adventurer Zombie almanac based on Dr. Livingstone

Specific to the Chinese Version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 (China only)

  • The Conehead Aristocrat Zombie has a fleur-de-lis on its cone. This is due to the fact that it was the symbol of the French monarchy, which was one of the main actors of the Renaissance, along with Italy.
