- Set - Rarity: Triassic - Super-Rare
Why not rob graves? They're not going to miss it. It's not like the dead are rising up or anything.
This zombie can be used as a strong start in the game, with the stats of 2/2 and the Bullseye trait. However, since its ability only boosts strength, you will need a few health-boosting tricks to keep it alive. Although being in the Crazy class allows it easy access to strength-boosting tricks like Sugary Treat, you are better off running it in a gravestone deck, just like how its ability mentions them.
In Impfinity's decks, it can be used as an aggressive start in either his pirate deck, where it can be supported by Swashbuckler Zombie and Captain Flameface, or in his gravestone deck alongside Headstone Carver and Tomb Raiser Zombie, where it can be boosted for each zombie revealed and also serve as removal bait, keeping Impfinity's more vauable Gravestone zombies from being destroyed.
Electric Boogaloo can use stat-boosting cards to help keep Grave Robber alive, but that is about it.
Professor Brainstorm has access to bonus attack cards to dish out unblockable damage onto his opponent or clear its lane of plants. He can also use it to activate Mustache Waxer's ability (turning Grave Robber into a free zombie) and as Evolution material for Duckstache.
Unfortunately, Grave Robber faces heavy competition from Quickdraw Con Man. While both have their own uses due to their different abilities, Quickdraw Con Man has a much more consistent ability while Grave Robber's is only useful early in the game. Quickdraw Con Man also has more health, allowing him to survive longer by default. These make Grave Robber less useful than Quickdraw Con Man overall in most cases.
Grave Robber is slightly threatening due to its Bullseye trait, and it can hit hard if enough gravestones are revealed. However, its health makes it easy to deal with. For example, one Banana Bomb deals with it unless its health is boosted. But be extra careful against Impfinity and Professor Brainstorm, as they have cards that synergize with Grave Robber.
- Its description is intentionally sarcastic, as the whole plot of the entire Plants vs. Zombies franchise is the dead rising from their graves.
- It shares animations with Valkyrie.
- When he attacks on the zombies side, he will quickly throw his gold at plants. When he attacks on the plants side, he will swing his backpack to throw his gold. This is probably an oversight.
