Impscrapped
History repeats itself but it
always gets the details wrong.
The content and images in this article are not fake. They are either unused concepts or scrapped features.

There's more of it!"
This article is about upcoming or scrapped features in the respective game. Do not add false information. If you do, it may result in a warning or even a block.
For a similar page regarding Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Plants vs. Zombies 2/Concepts.

This page lists unused content and concept art for the game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. It should be noted that these descriptions are not fabricated but are primarily found in various versions of the game's code. Additionally, one should note that some of these "scrapped" features might be reintroduced to the game in the future.

Concept art

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes started development in 2014 and concept art exists from the game's earliest stages.

In addition to these images, a video exists on Vimeo showing the game's earliest animations. Some of the art style seems based on Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.

Game of Plants

The Game of Plants (based on Game of Thrones) is mentioned a few times in the code. It is possibly an event or a future mission. Some unused descriptions like "Winter is coming," "Summer is coming" and "Mekka Lekka Hi-Mekka Hiney BRAINS!" might be related to this. Additionally, two unknown heroes are mentioned—Crime Biter and Professor Von Bats.

Fastest Match Icon

The August/September Update (version 1.18.3) claimed to add a "Fastest Match Icon" and that "In Multiplayer, if you can get faster matchmaking at your Rank by playing Plants or Zombies, you'll see a Fastest Match icon." This icon has not been seen in that update nor in any other updates since then.

However, this clock found on the game's files may be how the Fast Matchmaking Button would have looked.

Internal names

Sometimes during the loading screen for a multiplayer game, the game uses different names for the heroes in the code than in the actual game. These names are sometimes used for multiplayer names for users under the age of 13 or if connection is too slow to load the username.

Unused Cards

Plants

Name Card text Notes
Resistant Radish N/A A 6-cost 4/6 with "When played: All Plants get +2 Attack." This is most likely "The Mad Radish Samourai", i.e. Radish from the concept art images.
Whack-a-Zombie (beta) N/A A 5-cost Kabloom Trick with "Do 5 damage". This is almost identical to the card Sizzle.
Hypnotize Deal 3 damage to a Plant or the Plant Hero It actually dealt damage to a Zombie or the Zombie Hero. It was a Superpower card.
Health-Nut (beta) N/A 5-cost 6/6 with no ability

Gatling Pea (beta) When played: Destroy a Plant. 3-cost 6/6.
Imitator (beta) When played: Draw two cards. 2-cost 0/2. Used to be "When played: Gain two Plants." in older versions due to the wording of abilities back then.
Body-Gourd (beta) When played: Your Block Meter goes up by a Double Charge. 5-cost 3/6. Unlike the current Body-Gourd, it didn't have Team-Up and Amphibious, and its rarity was Super-Rare. Though, despite existing in early 2016, it was listed under Set 2 in PvZH 1.0.
Mega-heal Heal a Plant to full, It gets +5HeartPvZH. 1-cost Superpower trick card. It was Wall-Knight's original signature superpower. It also increased a Plant's HeartPvZH by 6 instead of 5 according to the card's coding.

Zombies

Name Card text Notes
TEST Zombie Aquatic N/A Probably used for testing the behavior of the Amphibious trait.
TEST Zombie Destroy Target Plant Fighter Burst N/A Burst is a keyword used in PvZH Code for tricks, so this was likely a card made to test how tricks that destroy would behave.
TEST Zombie Buff Fighter Burst N/A Probably used for testing the behavior of Tricks that buff Zombies.
0 Plant Board Clear Cheat 0 Destroy all fighters. This is a developer cheat; it is a superpower. Possible to be seen in older versions via a glitch in The Smash's hero quest.

Double Trouble N/A 3-cost Trick with no ability.
Bionic Zombie N/A N/A
Blank Zombie N/A It costs 99 Brains and cannot be played. Possible to be seen in update 1.14.10 by Mad Chemist or Eureka. This card is used to deflate AI difficulty by putting an unplayable (Even if they have 99 brains) card in their hand.

Zombie Nurse Start of Tricks: Heal all Zombies and the Zombie Hero for 2HeartPvZH. 3-cost 2/4 Professional Zombie in the Hearty class. She was made during the early betas of Colossal Fossils, but was scrapped for Sneezing Zombie. All that's left of this unused card is her Pack Sprite.

Trivia

  • In Spudow's concept Hero Intro comic, you can see Cakesplosion has hair, while in the final game, he does not have any hair.
    • Though, in early beta releases, Cakesplosion would have hair on Pack Art, and this would be changed later, meaning Cakesplosion likely had hair at some point in development.
  • According to the code for Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, Yeti Lunchbox was going to be a superpower.
    • Nibble was also going to be a superpower as well. 
  • It's likely Teleportation Zombie's design was changed to make it look less close to copyrighted material from Star Trek, but it could've also been changed out of creativity.
  • Cat Lady and Fraidy Cat's textures are located in the same section of the game files in early releases of PvZ Heroes. As only fighters who share textures are stored this way, one can assume that they were linked at some point or even part of the same fighter in earlier versions.
  • Crazy Dave and Dr. Zomboss have unused full-body textures. According to code, they were going to be Heroes themselves instead of simply instructing the player.
    • The Unused hero leveling system includes Dr. Zomboss and Crazy Dave as Heroes the player can get Hero Shards for, furthering this theory.
