Trivia

  • "Rigor Mormist" is a portmanteau of "Rigor mortis" which means "a recognizable sign of death where the muscles stiffen," and "Mist" which means "fog" which indicates the Fog Level.
  • "Ultimate Battle" was originally intended to be used for Melolune, one of Laura Shigihara's games. The game designer, George Fan, overheard the song and requested it for use in Plants vs. Zombies, given that Shigihara is still allowed the use the song for her own game.
  • "Graze The Roof" is a portmanteau word of "graze" which means "to put" which probably indicates the fact that Bungee Zombies put down Ambush Zombies in Roof levels, or "to eat," which indicates the fact that zombies eat the plants, and the phrase "raise the roof," which means "to produce noise.“
    • "Graze" also means to touch or scrape lightly in passing. This may refer to the zombies traversing the roof, and their rather slow movements.
  • "Grasswalk" is a portmanteau of "grass," which indicates the lawn with which there is grass, and "cakewalk," which means "something that is extremely easy to do," which indicates that the Day levels are the easiest levels in Adventure Mode.
  • "Loonboon" is a portmanteau word of "loony" which means "a person who behaves in a strange way," which probably indicates the zombies, and "boon" which means "happy and cheerful," which fits the melody of the music.
  • "Cerebrawl" is a portmanteau word of "cerebral," which means "relating to brain," which indicates that the purpose of the zombies is to eat brains, and "brawl," which means "rough, noisy fight."
  • Levels 1-10, 2-10, 3-10 and the Mini-games Air Raid and Column Like You See 'Em are the only levels to have a music piece called "Ultimate Battle," because Level 4-10 has no music played and 5-10 plays Brainiac Maniac.
  • There is also an unreleased track called ZomBotany. It was supposed to be played during the final battle with Dr. Zomboss in 5-10 and Dr. Zomboss's Revenge. Some people think/thought that this track was supposed to play during the zombotany minigames due to the similar names.
  • There is an infrequent glitch that usually occurs on Pool levels, where the music will randomly change from Watery Graves to Grasswalk.
    • This also occurs with the Zen Garden on the DS version. It is unknown whether this occurs elsewhere.
  • "Loonboon" was originally supposed to be twice as fast as it is currently.
  • The music in Plants vs. Zombies 2 is longer because unlike in the first game, the music is not designed to loop.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies 2, most of the music are remixes of music from the first game. For example, the Player's House and Modern Day have a remix of "Grasswalk," Ancient Egypt is possibly a remix of "Cerebrawl," Frostbite Caves is a remix of "Rigor Mormist," the Pop jam from Neon Mixtape Tour is a remix of "Loonboon", and Kongfu World is a remix of the seed selection music.
    • However, Laura Shigihara composed the piano sheet for the Ancient Egypt theme before it was later remixed by Peter McConnell.
    • In addition, there are also remixes of "Ultimate Battle" and "Brainiac Maniac" in all worlds except Neon Mixtape Tour (which don't use them) and Big Wave Beach (which doesn't have a Demonstration Mini-game theme).
    • Modern Day also has a "Graze the Roof" and a "There's a Zombie on Your Lawn" remix.
  • The only music played in Plants vs. Zombies that is not in a minor key is Zen Garden (C major). All others are in minor keys.
  • The music in Plants vs. Zombies seems to intensify during a huge wave of zombies.
    • These are called "Horde Themes."
    • This feature is missing from the Android and iOS versions.
    • This music plays through the whole level in the DS version.
  • There is no Fog level that uses the "Loonboon" and "Ultimate Battle" tracks.
  • From the 6.3.1 update in Plants vs. Zombies 2, all levels play their world's theme. Ultimate Battle and Demonstration Mini-game soundtracks have been removed.
  • Since the 1.8.0 update in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2Kongfu World's boss battle levels (Ultimate Challenge and Daily Challenge) uses the level theme instead of the Boss Battle theme.
  • The soundtrack composer for Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, Stan LePard, is also known for his contribution on various media soundtracks, most notably for composing the Windows XP Setup music "Velkommen".
