—Goalie Zombie's splash screen
She's based on a Goalkeeper, a person that prevents any opposing teams' ball from reaching the net.
Her ability to catch plants' projectiles and throw them back (a.k.a deflecting them) is way similar to a goalkeeper that throws the ball back to the soccerfield. It may also be a reference to the Jester Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies 2, who has a similar ability.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.
Goalie Zombie can switch her lanes to catch the plants' projectiles and throw them back. Planting three Snapdragons is really useful for damaging her when she's switching to another lane.
