Donut Roller's splash screen

Donut Roller is a Theater Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3, which you first encounter at Floor 5 of Devour Tower. He rolls a giant donut that crushes plants along the board, and he also protects himself from any straight-shooting projectiles. Once he's defeated, his giant donut becomes an obstacle.

Origins

He is very similar in behavior to Barrel Roller Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies 2, excluding the Imps that come out of the barrel.

Strategies

Donut Roller's donut has more than twice the toughness of Donut Roller, so using plants that can attack past the donut will help to defeat him quickly; Pine Needler is an outstanding example, both piercing through the donut and being effective against Donut Roller's Hot Damage type. Ragweed's pushback will take effect seperately on both the donut and Donut Roller, making the chance to push back Donut Roller far more likely than other zombies.

If attempting to break through the donut, using Blockbuster is recommended, as the donut will take extra Shatter damage from her attacks; Melon-Pult can also break through due to its Chilling damage type and high damage, but is less reliable when lots of Donut Rollers are present.

Trivia

  • He seems to look very similar to the Lard Lad Donuts mascot from the Simpsons, except his hair is pink instead of orange and he has a mustache.
