Count Chompula is a Rare variant of the Chomper in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He heals himself by 50 health when he swallows a zombie.

Origins

His name is a spoof of Count Dracula.

It is also a spoof of the cereal brand and mascot, "Count Chocula," which is also a Dracula spoof.

Descriptions

Stickerbook description

Count Chompula is very, very hungry. He's always looking for a Zombie feast. He regains health for every Zombie he swallows.

In-game description

Eat Zombies to regain lost health!

AI health (Garden Warfare 2 only)

  • Easy: 90
  • Normal: 120
  • Hard: 150
  • CRAAAAAZY: 180

Variant perk

The main difference from the normal Chomper Plant is that whenever Count Chompula eats and swallows a zombie, he will recover some health. It seems so far that no matter what type of zombie you eat, he will always gain 50 health. This is to counteract the fact that Count Chompula has 150 health without the health upgrade no faster whatsoever than what a normal Chomper is.

Primary weapon

Vampiric Chomp is the primary weapon of the Count Chompula. It deals the same amount of damage as the normal Chomp (25 damage). However, after a zombie is eaten, it will heal by 50.

Hitting targets with the Chomper's ranged Goop attack is a great way to slow them down, making them easier to chomp. They taste better too!
Super Sticky GoopGW1.png
Super Sticky Goop
This goop is sooo sticky that Zombies are not even able to move when they get hit by it. Let's say it together... "Now that's Sticky!"
Cheesy GoopGW1.png
Cheesy Goop
The Cheesy Goop in the first in Crazy Dave's new line of gourmet marinades. It's scientifically formulated to slow Zombies down and make them taste great!

BurrowGW1.png
Burrow
The Chomper's ultimate weapon. He has the ability to tunnel underground and ambush unsuspecting Zombies by emerging under their feet and swallowing them whole!
Sprint BurrowGW1.png
Sprint Burrow
The Sprint Burrow allows the Chomper to move much faster when under the ground, but the range is quite limited.
Right abilities
SpikeweedGW1.png
Spikeweed
Laying Spikeweed traps is a great way to ambush Zombies. If they walk over the Spikeweed, they get ensnared and are easy to chomp.
Spiky SpikeweedGW1.png
Spiky Spikeweed
The Spiky Spikeweed deals more damage to Zombies it ensnares, but only a few can be deployed at a time.
ChesterweedGW1.png
Chesterweed
The Chesterweed attacks at an extremely fast speed, dealing up to 70 damage in 5 seconds. Chompers eating zombies trapped by the Chesterweed will swallow significantly faster, but the Chomper can only have two of them at a time, instead of three. It takes 60 seconds to recharge one Chesterweed.

When a zombie stumbles into a Vampweed, you get a helpful health boost! The zombie isn't hurt, but he probably feels a bit silly falling into your trap.

Strategies

Count Chompula is ideally suited towards roaming Chompers who like to operate behind enemy lines, on the outskirts of the map and in other obscure locations, far away from teammates. The ability to recover health independently by eating zombies makes surviving when away from Sunflowers much easier as you are able to gain more health on your own rather than just auto-regenerating to 50%, allowing you to operate alone for longer than normal. On the contrary, though, Count Chompula loses some of his efficiency when near allies as the ability to recover health independently is rendered obsolete by the fact that Sunflowers can just as easily heal you and the 25 less health will eventually play against you. This is not true for Garden Warfare 2, as you will still auto-regenerate after %50 of your health, which makes this Chomper seem an even worse choice compared to other ones, unless if you get caught while swallowing. Pairing this character with Vampweed would be a great idea, because with Vampweed you can recover an extra 30 health with swallowing.

Balancing changes

Graveyard Variety Pack DLC

  • Digestion time was decreased after a chomp escape (i.e. victim got away using anti-chomp ability like Jackhammer).
  • Brought Chompers regeneration delay to parity with all other playable characters.

Trouble in Zombopolis: Part One DLC

  • Tuned Chomper camera to be closer to that in Garden Warfare.
  • Improved all digestion time upgrade multipliers.

Trivia

  • Other than normal regeneration, he is the only variant that can heal on its own, without the use of an ability.
  • He only heals when it fully eats a zombie, meaning if he attempts to eat a zombie that cannot normally be eaten (like an Engineer riding a Jackhammer) and fails to do so, he will not regain any health.
  • After he eats a zombie, he glows reddish-yellow and plays an organ chord for a few seconds.
    • A shorter version of the chord also plays when he bites.
  • When its original Hat accessory is removed, his head will no longer glow when he swallows a zombie.
