History

Plants vs. Zombies

In the original Plants vs. Zombies, as well as Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, Dr. Zomboss is the final boss that player faces. Controlling his Zombot, the player faces him in level 5-10.

Dr. Zomboss will create either a fireball or an ice ball to crush the plants. He can also crush an area of plants by throwing a van and remove the plants by summoning 3 Bungee Zombies. When defeated, his robot is destroyed and the player will have officially beaten Adventure Mode.

In the Chinese spinoff game Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition, Dr. Zomboss is replaced with Emperor Zombot. However, despite the large visual differences along with the lack of a pilot, Emperor Zombot functions exactly like Dr. Zomboss himself, apart from the fact he can appear in the game's unique version of Survival: Endless.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Dr. Zomboss makes a return in Plants vs. Zombies 2 and its Chinese version, continuing to obstruct the player, Crazy Dave, and Penny's adventure.

Apart from the Chinese-exclusive Kongfu World, Dr. Zomboss appears as a boss in every world, in a unique Zombot themed around the corresponding world each time.

Trivia

  • Dr. Zomboss is the only zombie that uses proper grammar.
  • Dr. Zomboss has a degree in thanatology; the study of death and the emotions surrounding it. This further shows his intelligence as opposed to other zombies.
  • In the comic Plants vs. Zombies: Bully For You, it is revealed that Dr. Zomboss has a pet goldfish bowl named "Ziggy". This is because that his pet goldfish kept running away so he now just has a pet goldfish bowl. According to him, it is simpler.
    • In the comics, he is shown to also have a pet hedgehog named Mr. Stubbins.
      • However, Mr. Stubbins' original owner is one of Dr. Zomboss' rivals of Bully for You, though this changed at the end of the comic.
  • Some of the descriptions in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and its sequel reveal some part of Zomboss's personal life.
    • He once lost a battle against a tennis ball machine according to Tennis Star's Stickerbook description.
    • When the player talks to Grumpy Stumpy, he reveals that Zomboss is a good cook.
    • He owns a company named Zomboss Inc. However, it is unknown what this company does.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, when unlocking Professor Brainstorm, a comic strip shows that he was once a judge in a science fair.
  • According to some Wiz Factz signs in the Seeds of Time map, Dr. Zomboss was born in the Year of The Naked Mole Rat.
  • He is one of the few zombies that smile, the others being Imp, Jack-in-the-Box Zombie and Money Bag Zombie. However, these are all manic smiles.
  • When you defeat Dr. Zomboss in the original game, he makes the same death sound as Gargantuar.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, the original Zombot makes a cameo. In one of the stages, the player can see the Zombot's head lying on the ground.
  • Dr. Zomboss keeps a swear jar, as seen in the Garden Warfare comics.
  • According to the comic Boom Boom Mushroom, Zomboss is allergic to 74.000 different plants, including Chompers, Peashooters, Cacti and Wall-nuts.
  • He was voiced by Russell Brand, who also voiced Dr. Nefario from the Despicable Me franchise and Creek from Trolls. [1][2]
  • In PvZ2, when the player defeats Zomboss in any map except for Neon Mixtape Tour due to completing a level there plays its victory theme, there's a high chance that the victory theme of Neon Mixtape Tour plays.
