Disco Zombie's splash screen

Disco Zombie is a Nightclub Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3, which you first encounter in at Floor 11 of Devour Tower. He will dance across your lawn, summoning four Backup Dancers in a cross formation every 10 seconds.

Origins

He is based on the Dancing Zombie, who has the same ability and appearance of the original game. He slightly resembles Disco Stu from The Simpsons animated sitcom series.

Strategies

Although it has low health, the Backup Dancer constantly summoned in front of him protects him from plant attacks. Use piercing plants like Night Cap to damage him even when he summons more Backup Dancers. Pine Needler at first appears to be a great choice against Disco Zombie, as her Tacobility "Looking Sharp" allows her to hit all 4 Backup Dancers and the Disco Zombie (so long as the one in the front is alive), but due to her being a Chilling Damage Icon.pngChilling type and the Backup Dancers and Disco Zombie being Electric Damage Icon.pngElectric types, she does less damage against them, making her a poor choice. Spikeweed is a cheap yet effective counter to both Disco Zombie and his Backup Dancers. Two or even one column of Spikeweeds can easily kill both zombies, due to Spikeweed being Earthy Damage Icon.pngEarthy type.

Balance changes

May 26, 2020 Patch

  • Now summons four backup dancers in the four cardinal directions.
    • He will only spawn additional backup dancers a short time after at least one of these four been removed from his formation. (Whether by defeat, or by getting moved out of formation.)
      • PopCap Note: This makes Disco Zombie function more like he did in the very first Plants vs. Zombies. It also reduces his difficulty variance, so he won't swarm your board with Backup Dancers if you can't deal with him right away.
  • His difficulty score has been reduced from 1000 to 750.
