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.

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 reach him even when he summons more. Pine Needler is a great choice against Disco Zombie, as her Tacobility "Looking Sharp" allows him to hit all 4 Backup Dancers and the Disco Zombie, as long as the one in the front is alive.

Balance changes

May 26, 2020 Patch

  • Now has four backup dancers that are "attached" to him in the four cardinal directions.
    • He will only spawn additional backup dancers a short time after at least one of his four attached ones has 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.
