I, Zombie Endless is the tenth and last level of I, Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, and Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition. It is the endless level of I, Zombie. When the player reaches a streak of ten in I, Zombie Endless, he or she will earn the achievement Better Off Dead.

List of possible combinations

Each streak has a possibility to be a certain layout. In all of the following layouts, one to eight Sunflower(s) are included (Puff-shrooms replace Sunflowers the further the player goes), dependent on the amount of sun the player has, as well as the player's streak. The Scaredy layout, has more sunflowers than usual (up to 13) and is also the very rare and easiest, as only one imp may still be able to clear one lane with other zombies on nearby lanes while Scaredy is hiding. The frequency of the scaredy layout notably affects how far a player can go.

Other plants in each layout:

Plants in different layouts
Layout Composite Control Instants DPS Explosive Starfruit Penetration Scaredy
Peashooter 1
Sunflower 1-8 1-8 1-8 1-8 1-8 1-8 1-8 6-13
Wall-nut 1
Potato Mine 1 4 9
Snow Pea 1 3 9
Chomper 2 3 8
Repeater 1 4
Puff-shroom 0-7 0-7 0-7 0-7 0-7 0-7 0-7 0-7
Fume-shroom 1 4 9
Scaredy-shroom 12
Squash 1 3
Threepeater 1 1
Spikeweed 2 3 3 9
Torchwood 1 1
Split Pea 1 3 4
Starfruit 1 8
Magnet-shroom 1 1 8
Kernel Pult 1 3
Unbrella Leaf 1 1

The magnet and fume layout is probably the most difficult one, due to the fact that Magnet-shrooms can stop the Digger Zombie, Ladder Zombie, Buckethead Zombie, and Football Zombie, and the Fume-shrooms can kill Dancing Zombie, as well as its Backup Dancers, and Imps quickly. Hence, only the Conehead Zombie, Pole Vaulting Zombie, and Bungee Zombie, which also are all weak, can be used initially. The player will need a lot of sun for this setup, unless the placement was bad.

  • The exploding layout is similar to ZomBoogie, except that sometimes, a Sunflower gets replaced by a Puff-shroom.
  • Although this I, Zombie level is endless, the streak record has a limit of 2,147,483,647 (using Cheat Engine). After that, the streak will be negative but the level will still continue.
    • This happens because 2,147,483,647 (231 - 1) is the maximum value of signed 32-bit integer in computing, and attempting to reach a value higher than this results in an integer overflow.
  • If the player runs out of sun during or after the streak, instead of saying "You lost all your zombies!", the losing message says "You made it into a streak of (number of streaks completed)."
