Furnace Zombie is the second unique zombie found in Steam Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. When he encounters a plant, he will explode almost instantly, destroying himself and the plant. Despite having a fire-based ability, his ability cannot be disabled by ice-based plants.
Furnace Zombie absorbs 1600 damage per shot and degrades at 800 damage per shot.
Note: Furnace Zombie has Hardened toughness and Hungry speed in-game.

Warmer temperatures can cause destruction and damage to plants.Working in a hot environment all day makes Furnace Zombie's temper very violent, so try not to make him angry. He'd be delighted if you send him a glass of cold water.
This zombie is incredibly threatening (although not as threatening as it would be without bugs), able to take down any plant in one shot. Try to destroy it with high DPS plants like Winter Melon before it gets too close to your plants. Alternatively, you could use a free plant like Puff-shroom to force it to explode early.
- Furnace Zombie will sometimes stop his walking animation when he gets hit with a projectile that is fire-based. It is unknown why this happens.
- For unknown reasons, when Furnace Zombie is attacked by a hypnotized zombie, its furnace will start to swell up, and then it will stop walking and freeze in place, neither attacking the hypnotized zombie back, nor exploding.
- According to the developers, Furnace Zombie was supposed to be able to have his ability disabled after being affected with ice effects a few times. His clock meter was supposed to show how much he was affected. His explosion was also supposed to be in a 3x3 range, similar to Exploding Zombie.
