Plants vs. Zombies Wiki

Grave Robber is a triassic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Crazy Icon.pngCrazy class. It costs 1BrainPvZH.png to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH.png/2HeartPvZH.png. It has the PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye trait, and its ability gives it +1StrengthPvZH.png every time a zombie comes out from a gravestone, including those affected by In-Crypted, Mixed-Up Gravedigger, Cursed Gargolith, and Graveyard.



It is based on a grave robber, a person who commits acts of grave robbery by digging up graves with the intention of stealing valuable items from those graves.

Card description

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 2StrengthPvZH.png/2HeartPvZH.png and the PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye 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.

As Impfinity, 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.

Z-Mech could protect it with Escape through Time and boost its health. He can also lower the Gravestone zombies' costs with Flag Zombie.

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 in most cases overall. However, Grave Robber fares better in the late game, since his higher StrengthPvZH.png can allow him to trade better.


Grave Robber is slightly threatening due to its PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye 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.
