Parasol Zombie is a colossal super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Brainy class. She costs 4 to play and has 3/6. She has the Untrickable trait, and her ability gives all zombies on the lanes adjacent to her the Untrickable trait. This ability persists until all Parasol Zombies around the zombie are removed from the field. Her closest plant counterpart is Umbrella Leaf.
She is based on the zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2 with the same name and appearance. Her ability is a reference to how she can block lobbed-shot projectiles, which in this game mostly manifests as tricks.
The author "Brain Austen" mentioned in her description is a reference to Jane Austen, an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels. Coincidentally, all of Jane Austen's major novels were set during the Georgian era, and Parasol Zombie wears clothing similar to women from that time period. Additionally, Parasol Zombie's internal name in PvZ2 is "lostcity_jane".

Parasol Zombie has quite great stats for a 4 card. She also has an amazing trait, namely Untrickable for herself and zombies next to her. This can make it tough for plants to destroy her and the zombies next to her, while having two makes every zombie essentially untrickable. You can play a very powerful zombie such as Nurse Gargantuar, Zombot Sharktronic Sub or Octo Zombie and do not have to worry much about plant tricks. Just be careful of abilities such as Jumping Bean's and Cob Cannon's, as they bypass the Untrickable trait. You will also have to keep in mind that Gravestones are not protected by her ability.
Immorticia is one of the best heroes to use this card with as she has access to both many strong zombies like Zombot 1000 and access to boosting tricks like Maniacal Laugh. As tricks are usually the tools used to counter these, combining them with Parasol Zombie makes it much more difficult to destroy these strong zombies. What makes this even more difficult is that unlike Umbrella Leaf, Parasol Zombie herself also possesses the Untrickable trait as well as good stats, meaning it will also be difficult to remove Parasol Zombie before removing the strong zombie in question.
Parasol Zombie is a very tough zombie to destroy, namely her tough stats, her Untrickable trait, and her ability. Due to this, you cannot use tricks like Whack-a-Zombie, Doom-Shroom, Squash, or Shamrocket to take care of her and the zombies next door. If she is played on an empty lane, the best counter for her is Chomper as it can destroy her unless boosted. Cob Cannon and Briar Rose are also effective. As a last resort, play glass cannons to damage her. Otherwise, you can stall by using Chilly Pepper or Jumping Bean to survive for a few turns and protect your defenses. The Great Zucchini can also render this useless, but he's usually plated in the late game and your opponent would usually win before then.
If there is an extremely dangerous zombie adjacent to her, cards such as Sweet Potato, Sweet Pea or Whipvine can move her away from the zombie (or vice versa), making it vulnerable to tricks. However, her Untrickable trait can extend to almost all lanes, so be mindful.

- Her description is the second time Jane Austen has been referenced in the series. The first was in Lightning Reed's Almanac entry in the same game that they both first appeared in.
- Additionally, her code name in PvZ2 was “lostcity_jane”.
- She has an unused animation where she places her hand on her cheek as the parasol expands horizontally, which can be seen by giving her Overshoot. This may be a leftover from an earlier version where she had an active ability, which was later scrapped.
