You know, they used to call me "Fog Man," 'cause I would hang out in the fog and JUMP OUT AT PEOPLE. Ah, those were the days.

Level 4-1 is the thirty-first level in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, and Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition, and it is the first Fog level. It is a regular level. When this level is finished for the first time, the player obtains the Plantern.


  • The fog covers the three rightmost columns on this level, leaving only six columns clearly visible for the player.
  • Jack-in-the-Box Zombies may explode and destroy some plants.
  • A few zombies will still pop out in random spots in the middle of the pool during the final wave.


  • Required plants:
  • Do not worry about the fog, because it will only matter in later levels. Start out with planting Sun-shrooms and Puff-shrooms on the left side of the lawn with the occasional Sea-shroom when it recharges.
  • Do not waste time in planting Sea-shrooms. Plant them as soon as they recharge.
  • When you have enough sun, plant Peashooters on the leftmost columns without digging up Sun-shrooms (digging up Puff-shrooms are okay because they are free).
  • Use instant-kills when the zombies start getting too close to your house.
  • If the fog is too much of a problem, the player can plant Torchwoods to clear out some of the fog.
