Elite Giga Torchwood splash screen in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville

Giga Torchwood is the very first boss plant exclusive to Graveyard Ops and the Backyard Battleground in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Giga Torchwood is based on Torchwood's design in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He has both long range and short range attacks, making him similar to the Giga Gargantuar . He is similar to the Torchwood character class.

  • Torch Gatling: Fires a rapid barrage of flaming shots from his gun that ignite hit enemies.
  • Volcano Breath: Breathes fire in front of him to damage and burn enemies.
  • Big Shot: Charges up a slow-moving but powerful shot that explodes to inflict splash damage and residual burn damage.
  • Fire Storm: Fires an airstike of fireballs out of his head, which rain down on enemies. Rounds from this attack explode and inflict fire damage.
  • Giga Bash: Punches the area in front of it, dealing damage and knocking enemies back.
  • Berzerk  (Conjectural): When he is at low health, Giga Torchwood may turn his flames blue, similar to Torchwood's Plant Food effect. This greatly boosts the damage of all of his abilities and adds "Berzerk" in front of their names (excluding Giga Bash). This effect lasts for about 60 seconds and also boosts up Giga Torchwood's mobility around.

Super Giga-Torchwood Wave

When the slots land on 3 Giga-Torchwood icons, a Super Giga-Torchwood wave will occur. Besides 3 Giga-Torchwoods, Fire Peas, Fire Flowers, Fire Cacti, and Fire Chompers will appear along with some Kernel Corns.


Easy - 2040 health

Normal - 2720 Health

Hard - 3400 health

CRAAAAAZYY! - 4800 health


Like Giga Gargantuar, he can do both melee and ranged damage, being a threat in all forms of combat. If you are attacking him as a team, have 1 or 2 people distract the Giga-Torchwood, then have 2-3 people attack him. Beware his Big Shots and Firestorm Strike, which fire from ranges farther than his Torch Gatling. If possible, hide behind cover and poke your head out to occasionally attack. Zombies like Foot Soldier or any Sniper is great against this boss since you can get to spots where you can chip off its health.



  • In a Super Giga Torchwood wave, fire plants from the first game appear often.
  • This is the very first boss plant to be revealed, as well as being the first plant boss revealed at E3.
  • He is present in the background of the Vanquish Confirmed image, possibly hinting it to be a new playable character.
    • This proved to be true, but if it was a hint or not is unknown.
  • The name of his Big Shot ability may reference the attack used by Barret in Final Fantasy VII.
    • The fact that his right arm is a Gatling gun also references how said character also has a gun replacing his right arm in said game.
  • In Graveyard Ops this is the most common boss to be chosen from the Slot Machine.
