The Night area, also known as Nightfall in Plants vs. Zombies: Endless Edition, is the second stage of Adventure Mode and the setting of the ten levels after the daytime levels in Plants vs. Zombies. It is exactly like the Day levels in layout except that it takes place in the nighttime; therefore, mushrooms stay awake and sun does not fall from the sky. Because of the lack of falling sun, it is much harder to defend the home without using mushrooms, and the player's sun producers have to be well-guarded.

Sun-shrooms take the place of Sunflowers, and Scaredy-shrooms and Puff-shrooms take the place of Peashooters. Also, during this stage, graves will appear at the beginning of the level in random points on the half of the lawn farthest from the player's house. They cannot be planted on, and zombies surface from them during the final wave of a level. However, the graves can be removed by Grave Busters.

New plants[]

Nocturnal Plants, which mainly consists of mushrooms, are the key to Night levels due to the lack of sun and the fact that they generally require less sun than normal day time plants. The most important mushroom introduced in these levels is the Puff-shroom, which costs no sun at all. This is helpful because of the lack of sun.

However, their short range means the player will eventually have to move on to better ranged mushrooms such as the Fume-shrooms and the Scaredy-shrooms, which are still both relatively cheap. The Sun-shroom is also important, as they cost less sun than the Sunflower which means they are the likely to be the only source of sun during the night. The other nocturnal plants introduced are Hypno-shrooms, Ice-shrooms, and Doom-shrooms.

New zombies[]

An important trick for the Dancing Zombie is to use a Hypno-shroom on it as fast as possible to avoid non-hypnotized Backup Dancers. The hypnotized Dancing Zombie will summon hypnotized Backup Dancers, and this is extremely useful most of the time, albeit one should be careful not to hypnotize any Backup Dancers instead.

Newspaper Zombie and Screen Door Zombie are also weak to Fume-shroom, as Fume-shroom's projectiles pierce through their shields.

Trivia[]

  • The song played in this area is called "Moongrains." While it also plays during the Night level, it is the only one that changes drastically during the huge waves of zombies, with a change in tune and more instruments.
    • In Survival: Night levels, even in between huge waves, the music also changes, while in regular levels after a huge wave has passed, the music reverts to the original.
  • If the player uses Hypno-shroom on a Dancing Zombie, Disco is Undead and sometimes called Thrilling the Zombies are obtained.
  • Zombonis do not appear in Night stages because of the presence of graves; their ice trails would go under the grave but not smash it.
  • In Survival Mode, at least one grave pops up before the last huge wave of zombies approaches, meaning it is impossible to completely remove the graves so they never come back.
    • If the right half of the lawn is full of plants, then one plant will be removed to make space for graves (graves do not appear on the left three columns).
  • Night is noticeably darker than Fog.
  • It has the biggest variety of single-use plants the player will receive, with four single-use plants being given.
  • There is a rare glitch in the Game of the Year version where after the final wave appears, the music stops completely.
  • It is the only area with more than ten stages in Adventure Mode, as Level 4-5 is a Night stage rather than a Fog stage.
  • Grave Buster is the only plant in the Night stage to not be a mushroom.
  • This is the only area in Plants vs. Zombies to have all of its Zombies return in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • This is the first area to include gimmicks and ambush zombies.
