Pumpkin Witch (南瓜巫师; pinyin: nánguā wūshī) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. She lobs pumpkins at zombies which covers the head of the said zombie with a pumpkin and also changes the zombie's clothing, transforming them into a pumpkin-headed zombie that fights for the plants' side, similar to a Hypno-shroom. The pumpkin head has increased health and can withstand multiple zombie bites. Once the pumpkin is destroyed, the zombie reverts to its normal state. She was released in time after Halloween, in November.



Pumpkin Witch is based on Cucurbita pepo, a normal pumpkin. Her appearance (hat and broom) is based on a witch. Witches could use magic to move obstacles without touching them.

This plant is similar to the Hypno-shroom in that she can control zombies, but she does not allow zombies to activate their special abilities, although she can control Wizard Zombies and Octo Zombies. But beware, as she does not attack every type of zombie and is useless against Gargantuars, Fisherman Zombies or Zombie Chickens and will be quickly overwhelmed by them. Note that her projectiles cannot hit Parasol Zombie as well. Additionally, zombies that have their pumpkins eaten will revert into hostile zombies, and the pumpkins have lower health than a hypnotized Buckethead or Gargantuar. And unlike hypnotized zombies or zombie illusions, the pumpkins are reverted instantly by crushing objects. Therefore, she should be avoided at high difficulty levels, and should be avoided in Sky City as she cannot attack aerial zombies.

  • Unlike hypnotized zombies, pumpkin-headed zombies are killed (reverted) instantly by zombies with crushing objects, such as Pianist Zombie and Barrel Roller Zombie.
  • She does not attack zombies with non-basic body models that are not Imps, such as Zombie Chickens, Gargantuars, or Pianist Zombies.
  • If her pumpkin hits an Imp, the Imp will become a pumpkin-headed Imp instead of a regular Zombie with a pumpkin head.
    • However, she does not attack Yeti Imps, possibly due to a glitch.
  • If she lobs a pumpkin at a submerged Snorkel Zombie, the pumpkin will hit the Snorkel Zombie but will not transform him.
  • She can be chosen in Sky City levels. However, she does not attack any zombies in that world.
  • Like Wizard Zombie, the pumpkin heads' "zombies" have Mummy Zombie's legs.
    • This is probably a reference to The Plague, where people would bandage themselves for protection from it.
