Dead Zeppelin is the fifth level of I, Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, and Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition. It mainly focuses on Balloon Zombies.


The level's name is a reference to the 1970s rock band Led Zeppelin. A zeppelin is also a large blimp, referring to Balloon Zombies.


Use Bungee Zombies to get rid of Magnet-shrooms and Cacti when you have enough sun. Then, use Buckethead Zombies in rows with heavy offense and Balloon Zombies with even heavier offense. However, do not use Balloon Zombies in lanes with Cactus nor Buckethead Zombies around Magnet-shrooms, otherwise, they will be wasted. Use a Bungee Zombie to remove them before you send in a Balloon Zombie. Never send a Balloon Zombie at the start, even if the lane has no Cacti. You will lose immediately.

  • It is the only I, Zombie level that includes Balloon Zombie and Cactus.
  • If a Balloon Zombie makes it to the player's house while he still has his balloon, it will automatically pop so he can drop down to eat the brains.
    • If a Balloon Zombie enters a lane where the brains are already eaten, he will continue floating past without his balloon popping.
