The Magic Taco is an item that appears in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies 2, and Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.


Plants vs. Zombies


Getting the Magic Taco on the iPad version

The Magic Taco is obtained at the end of Level 4-4 in Adventure Mode on the first time it is completed. After the level, Crazy Dave will take the Magic Taco and give a diamond in return. He will also show the player new items at his shop, such as the Gloom-shroom and Cattail. In the iOS and Android versions, the player gets bacon in a similar manner on Level 3-4.

It is possible to return to the main menu and even exit the game after getting the taco, but before selling it to Crazy Dave. In this case, the player will retain it, until they begin Level 4-5, at which time Crazy Dave will purchase it. It is possible to get the player back their taco after Crazy Dave has bought it using the user file editor, in which case he will purchase it again if the player starts Level 4-5 again, even if the player has already won Adventure Mode at least once.

The Magic Taco plays a pivotal role in this game. When the player obtains hot sauce after completing Player's House - Day 4, it is revealed that Crazy Dave saved the Magic Taco from the events of the first game. After eating the Magic Taco, Crazy Dave then decides to go back in time so he can eat it again, but "accidentally" ends up in Ancient Egypt. The Magic Taco is the main plot point for the game, as the player travels through different time periods to try and find it. After Modern Day - Day 34, Dr. Zomboss tells Crazy Dave that it is impossible to re-eat a taco, but offers Crazy Dave a "Taco with a Waffle in it" instead.

Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars

In this game, the Magic Tacos are used as the "energy" to play levels, similar to the lives or energy systems in some other games such as Candy Crush Saga or Cut the Rope 2. The number of Magic Tacos needed in each level is different, but it is normally 5-7 tacos in normal levels and 10-14 tacos in boss levels and the levels which drop equipment. A Magic Taco takes one minute to regenerate, and they will continue to do so until reaching the maximum number of tacos. The maximum amount will also increase as you level up. You can get more Magic Tacos from friends, cards, etc., even when the number of Magic Tacos has already reached the maximum.


Plants vs. Zombies

  • It is unclear what its magical properties are, or why Crazy Dave would pay $1000 for it, although this may just demonstrate his craziness.
    • It is possible that it has to do with the cardboard plants moving and attacking the zombies in the I, Zombie levels, which makes sense because Puzzle Mode is unlocked at Level 4-6, the first normal level played after getting the Magic Taco.
  • Unlike the bacon, this is not sold in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

  • Before Ancient Egypt - Day 25, Dr. Zomboss suggests that the taco has brains in it. This is later proven false, as Crazy Dave reveals at the end of the level that the taco does not contain meat, but rather "Tofunky."
  • The "note" obtained on Modern Day - Day 15 is a taco, and Crazy Dave believes it to be his Magic Taco, but it is then revealed by Penny to be a trap on the next level.
  • It looks significantly different in this game as its tortilla is darker and wider.
