Plants vs. Zombies Wiki

Kitchen Sink Zombie is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Brainy Icon.pngBrainy class. He costs 6BrainPvZH.png to play and has 3StrengthPvZH.png/6HeartPvZH.png.

He has the PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye, PvZH Frenzy Icon.pngFrenzy, PvZH Armored Icon.pngArmored 1, Weird unused PvZH icon.pngOvershoot 2, and PvZH Anti-Hero Icon.pngAnti-Hero 3 traits but does not have any abilities.

He was added in update 1.16.10, along with Forget-Me-Nuts, Atomic Bombegranate, Zombology Teacher, Thinking Cap, Bad Moon Rising, and Imp-Throwing Imp.



He is likely based on the Plumber, an Engineer variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 with a similar appearance.

His name is a combination of "kitchen sink," the real-life object he is holding, and "zombie," referring to what he is. The fact that he appears to be a Plumber references the fact that plumbers fix pipes and therefore are often used to fix sinks.

His description references the idiom "everything but the kitchen sink," meaning everything imaginable, due to his numerous traits and his sprite also featuring the titular sink

Card description

He's got everything but the - no wait, he's got that too.



While this card seems to have many traits at random, this zombie is made to do huge damage to your opponent while surviving longer with PvZH Armored Icon.pngArmored 1. His PvZH Frenzy Icon.pngFrenzy, PvZH Anti-Hero Icon.pngAnti-Hero 3, and PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye traits make a perfect combo to destroy 3 health plants and do 6 unblockable damage to your opponent. And lastly, his Weird unused PvZH icon.pngOvershoot 2 trait ensures that you are guaranteed 2 unblockable damage to your opponent every turn of combat.

However, keep in mind that his Weird unused PvZH icon.pngOvershoot 2 trait does not team up with PvZH Anti-Hero Icon.pngAnti-Hero 3. Being in the Brainy class, all Brainy heroes can use either Teleport or Teleportation Zombie to play him on an empty lane without being countered and to do an insane amount of damage, or use Cryo-Brain to play him faster.

Each Brainy hero also has their own way of using this zombie well:

  • Immorticia can boost his stats to make him an even bigger threat, or destroy plants that block his way. He can also be used in an Ancient Vimpire deck.
  • Professor Brainstorm can use him with Binary Stars to defeat his opponent more quickly. He can also play damaging tricks to destroy or weaken plants in front of Kitchen Sink Zombie, allowing most of his traits to not go to waste.
  • Rustbolt can use cards to move plants blocking Kitchen Sink Zombie's lane such as Terrify and Rodeo Gargantuar to allow more damage on the plant hero, or use health-boosting cards such as Camel Crossing and Rock Wall or shielding cards such as Escape through Time to allow him to last longer. He can also play Flag Zombie to play Kitchen Sink Zombie earlier, making him a bigger threat.


Kitchen Sink Zombie is a threat due to his many traits that synergize well with each other. If you leave him alone, he will do a lot of damage to you with his Weird unused PvZH icon.pngOvershoot 2, PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye, and PvZH Anti-Hero Icon.pngAnti-Hero 3 traits. If you try to block his attacks with weak plants, he'll just plow through them with his PvZH Frenzy Icon.pngFrenzy trait. He also has the PvZH Armored Icon.pngArmored 1 trait, which allows him to resist most attacks.

However, keep in mind that you can destroy him with instant-kill cards such as Squash or Whack-a-Zombie. Tactical Cuke also works if Kitchen Sink Zombie is on the ground, but remember that it will wipe out your plants on ground lanes too.

If Kitchen Sink Zombie gets the UntrickableAltBig.pngUntrickable trait via Parasol Zombie, use plants with instant-kill abilities like Chomper, Eyespore (if the plant hero has enough sun to immediately play another plant on eyespore), Toadstool, or Briar Rose (a flower is needed as a bait to trigger her instant-kill ability). However, those are only options for a PvZH Solar Icon.pngSolar hero.

If you cannot play instant-kills, try to play high-health plants to stall him, or boost a plant's strength so it can destroy this zombie in one attack, but you will have to take some Weird unused PvZH icon.pngOvershoot damage. Same goes for PvZH Frozen Icon.pngFreezing, but it is a more reliable option and can activate Winter Squash's ability. You can also Bounce him, since he is quite expensive to play.
