Pelican Zombie is a zombie that appears in the Pirate Seas expansion in Plants vs. Zombies 2, along with Barrelhead Zombie and Jolly Roger Zombie. It is an upgraded version of Seagull Zombie with a faster speed.

Pelican Zombie

SPEED: Flighty

Pelican Zombie crosses water without a plank and flies over low plants.

Special: floats over low plants

The Pelican Zombie upgraded from the Seagull Zombie and has no regrets. No egrets, either. Just a pelican.



Pelican Zombie is an upgraded version of Seagull Zombie, which means the two have the same counters. You can defeat a Pelican Zombie the same way you would for a Seagull Zombie, using plants such as Blover or Kernel-pult. Be aware of Pelican Zombie's speed, as it can make it to your lawn mower or house rather quickly if you don't defeat it in time. You can block them off with defensive plants such as Wall-nut if you don't have Blover or Hurrikale available. Primal Peashooters and Apple Mortars are great choices for stalling this zombie. Snow Peas, Winter Melons, and Cold Snapdragons can effectively slow them down. If these zombies appear in large numbers, which they sometimes do, those plants along with Cactus, Laser Bean, Fume-shroom and Electric Peashooter are excellent counters.

Note: Avoid using Citron against this zombie (unless fed with Plant Food) as their fire rate is slow. Additionally, this zombie can reach Citron fast or possibly even destroy it before it can fire a plasma ball.



  • The pelican's squawks are slightly deeper than Seagull Zombie's seagull.
  • Its Almanac entry makes a pun on "regret" using the word "egret," which is a type of bird.
  • When it is electrocuted, the pelican carrying the zombie turns into a seagull. This is because it uses the exact same electrocution sprites as the Seagull Zombie.
  • Not counting the Brickhead Zombie and its variants, it is the only veteran zombie that does not have "-veteran" in the code name.
