Gladiator Gargantuar is a Gargantuar variant encountered in Penny's Pursuit. The Gladiator Gargantuar has various differences from other world-based Gargantuars, having the ability to throw a Roman Imp, which drops a net on a plant once he lands, disabling plants for 10 seconds. His helmet also provides extra health, and he is slower than other Gargantuars. He and Jurassic Gargantuar are tied as the strongest Gargantuar variants in Plants vs. Zombies 2.
Wears a helmet. Throws an imp AND a net. Just a real piece of work.
He's got a column and he's not afraid to use it.
Gladiator Gargantuar is a very dangerous zombie that can easily mess up your defense. Not only does have a net, but Roman imp also has more health than other Imps and he can eat plants withing a fast rate.
Try to select strong plants when you encounter him. Also try to stall him as much as you can such as: Gumnut which can easily stall him. Try hypnotizing him with Caulipower but this is not likely since Healer Zombie can remove his hypnosis
Bombard-mint family plants can really defeat him since these plants can deal high damage to him and will only take 3 hits to wipe him out, but this can cause him to throw the Roman Imp which can mess up your lawn. Another way to easily defeat him is Shrinking him which reduces his speed and health and can easily be defeated by the Squash.
Avoid doing Spicy or Extra Hot mode if you have weak or low-level plans in Penny's Pursuit since his health increases.
Like always It's good to bring Primal Wall-nut.
- Unlike other Gargantuar variants, the Gladiator Gargantuar does not fall over as soon as his head falls off. He staggers before falling, similar to most other zombies. It is unknown if this is a glitch or not.
- Most instant kill zombies deal 1500, however the Gladiator Gargantuar deals 1875. It is unknown if this is intentional or not.
- His Almanac entry references the I've Got an X, and I'm Not Afraid to Use It! stock phrase.
