Ingot Thief Zombie was a zombie in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He was featured in events that ran until February 15, 2016. He acted like Swashbuckler Zombie, but stole ingots if he was next to one.
His actions depended on how many ingots there were on the tile he was about to steal. If there are six ingots, the zombie would steal one and walk away. If there were five, he took away all ingots at once, but still walked away. If there were four or less ingots, he took away all ingots, but walked to the player's house instead. When killed or if he escaped, Ingot Thief Zombies sometimes dropped a free plant for the player to use. While one was walking away, he did not eat plants but could still be attacked normally. If one was killed while walking back after stealing an ingot, the ingot(s) was not returned.
Ingot Thief Zombie absorbed 185 damage per shot. It lost its arm at 95 damage per shot before dying at 185 damage per shot.
