For other uses, see Pirate Seas (disambiguation).

Pirate Seas is the 2nd world in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is based on an old pirate ship on the open ocean. It is home to pirate zombies and some plants. It is unlocked by using a World Key, which is only obtainable after completing Ancient Egypt - Day 6 (This was previously Ancient Egypt - Day 8 prior to the 7.1 update)

The events in Pirate Seas takes place in the 'Golden Age of Piracy', assuming to be in the period of buccaneering which was characterized by an Anglo-French seamen based on Jamaica and Tortuga where in the assault of Spanish colonies. Judging by its description, it is assumed that this world takes place on the Caribbean Sea, which is the most well known for the main setting of countless literary efforts related to piracy and swashbuckling.

In this world, the player's lawn is split up into three sections. The first section, the half towards their lawnmowers (the first five columns) functions as it normally would. The section towards the entry point for zombies is quite different. Planks connecting the zombies' ship to the player's allow them to passage normally onto your lawn. While some rows do not have any planks, they can still be attacked by ambush zombies landing halfway across their lawn.

The sections with the planks will function as normal, with the exception that a few plants cannot be planted on planks (such as underground plants, like Potato Mine). The third and final part is the sea tiles, which no plants (not even water-orientated plants like Lily Pads) can be planted there and zombies instantly die if they land in the water. This is also the main part of the lawn where Swashbuckler Zombies start to swing forward towards the non-water parts of the lawn.

Game description

The year is 1679, the golden age of zombie piracy! Keep your booty close, and your plants closer, as the zombies take to the sea to plunder your brains!

Order of events (Spoilers)

The player uses the key obtained from Ancient Egypt - Day 6 and the player travels to this world.

After Day 7, the player receives a treasure map that leads to "Treasure" saying "TREASURE, NOT ZOMBIES". However, it was a trap planned by the zombies and Dr. Zomboss, thus, they attack the player, yet, the wave of zombies are defeated.

When the player reaches Day 25, Dr. Zomboss writes a note, claiming Penny may be a Zombot since its temporal signature is nearly identical to his own creations. Penny asks Crazy Dave if she is the daughter of Dr. Zomboss, but Crazy Dave mentions only about a sandwich he just made. Dr. Zomboss then attacks the player in his Zombot Plank Walker, but is defeated once again. He then writes another note, saying that he will have the answers when he has Crazy Dave's brains. In retaliation, he flees as always.

Brain Busters

Cannons Away

Main article: Cannons Away

Cannons Away is an exclusive Brain Busters for Pirate Seas. The objective for this game is to beat the target score by shooting the Seagull Zombies using the Coconut Cannons. Failure to do so will force the player to retry the level.

Locked and Loaded

Main article: Locked and Loaded

In this Brain Busters, the player is required to finish the level with the plants given to survive the zombies attack.

Save Our Seeds

Main article: Save Our Seeds

In this Brain Busters, the player has to protect the endangered Spring Beans and survive a horde of zombies at the same time. Otherwise, the player will have to start over again.

Last Stand

Main article: Last Stand (PvZ2)

The player must plan their defenses carefully and must survive an intense zombie incursion. However, if the player is smart enough to formulate a good strategy, he or she can win this Brain Buster.

Dead Man's Booty

Main article: Dead Man's Booty

Dead Man's Booty is Pirate Seas' Endless Zone. The player can practice their skills in surviving level after endless levels of extremely big hordes of zombies. This is also a great way to practice how long the player can survive in extreme hordes of Gargantuars that will appear. The numbers and positions of planks are randomised for each level

Zombot Plank Walker

Main article: Zombot Plank Walker

The Zombot Plank Walker is the boss of Pirate Seas. It can summon any Pirate Seas Zombie except Seagull Zombie, Flag Pirate Zombie, Swashbuckler Zombie, and Imp Cannon. It has two attacks: the first causes the Zombot's "eye" to pull back and reveal a cannon that fires five Imp Pirate Zombies. The second attack causes the Zombot to retreat a short distance, then charge forward destroying both plants and zombies in a two-column range unless stopped with Plant Food.

Trivia

  • Zombies in this world have a very large vocabulary as they tend to say things like "landlubber", "scurvy brains", "brains ahoy", "scallywag", and more pirate catchphrases.
  • The victory music for this world mixes the Pirate Seas victory music and, since the Neon Mixtape Tour update, the Neon Mixtape Tour victory music. This glitch has been fixed since the Neon Mixtape Tour Side B update.
  • All the zombies in this world have gold teeth except for the Gargantuar Pirate and the Zombie Parrot.
  • If the player looks closely, the zombie ship has a skull with a pan on it, which resembles Crazy Dave's appearance. This is similar to how the Sphinx (located on the right of Ancient Egypt's lawn), Pharaoh Zombie's sarcophagus, and the statue on Lost City's lawn (located on the left side) have Crazy Dave's face on them, as well as coins.
  • On the world map, a shark's fin can be seen by the Gargantuar statue as a reference to the Gargantuar Pirate's hand-held weapon (a shark). However, he isn't holding it directly.
  • The Golden Age of Zombie Piracy is a reference to the Golden Age of Piracy.
  • This world, Dark Ages, Sky City, and Renaissance Age are the only worlds to have animated backgrounds.
  • This world's surprise attack was not added until the 1.7 update.
  • The weather in this world is cloudy.
  • The water actually deals massive damage to whatever zombie that gets on it with a DPS higher than 5400 and all zombies that enter that area will have their death animation replaced by a Splash. This is evident if the player somehow removes the planks in Zombot Plank Walker's battle, and the Zombot will constantly take massive damage while creating multiple splashes, as it is not supposed to drown in the first place.
  • This world has the most plants the player can unlock, that being 8 plants.
  • Inzanity Epic Quest levels of this world can also spawn entirely plankless levels without Imp Cannons, Seagull Zombies, and Swashbuckler Zombies, causing the player to effectively win the level without doing anything as everything spawns, drowns.
  • This world has the most ways Imps can be spawned. Specifically, from Barrel Roller Zombie, Zombot Plank Walker, Imp Cannon, thrown by a Pirate Gargantuar, and spawning normally from the right.
  • The stairs at the top of the background are much larger than a regular zombie.
  • There is a glitch where the player can plant any plants on water and planks by tapping on the seed packet, then moving the finger to water or planks, holding until all the zombies die. This causes the plant to be planted on water.
    • In addition, a little splash sound can be heard when planting on water.
    • The player can use this glitch to plant underground plants (e.g. Potato Mine, Celery Stalker, etc.) on planks.
  • There is unused music for this world composed by Laura Shigihara, it can be heard in a Crazy Dave Transmission on YouTube. Due to high demand, the track was later released through Shigihara's official Youtube channel.
  • One of the voice clips for the zombies is recycled from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
  • Ancient Egypt, Pirate Seas, Wild West, and Modern Day are the only worlds that did not change their positions on the world map after 5.3.1 update.
  • The instruments used to represent Pirate Seas in Modern Day's themes are the Accordion and the Flute.
