- Not to be confused with another zombie of a similar name from Plants vs. Zombies 2, Robo-Cone Zombie.
Robo-Zombie is a Zombot in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, it appears in the beta and in the full game in the Backyard Battleground in the Flag of Power, as well as some L.E.A.F. Quests for the Plants, and the "Robo Assault" special wave being comprised only with it in Garden Ops.
The Robo Zombie typically uses a short-ranged weapon and a long-ranged weapon, making it comparable to that of Super Brainz.
- Easy: 180
- Normal: 240
- Hard: 300
- CRAAAAZY: 360
The primary short-ranged weapon of the Robo-Zombie is the Heavy Punch and the primary long-ranged weapon is called the Wrist Blaster.
Heavy Punch deals 30 area damage, involving Robo-Zombie spinning on the spot. Plants hit with this attack have knockback damage dealt to them.
The Wrist Blaster deals 12 impact damage and deals some splash damage. It fires slowly.

If the player gets a "Super Robot Wave" in Garden Ops, composed of 3 Mech Gargantuar boss icons, then Robo-Zombies and some Computer Scientists will back up the bosses, making up the entirety of super boss wave.
Robo-Zombies also have their own special wave, called "Robo-Assault."
The best case scenario for dealing with this character is to use a character with range, such as Cactus and her variants. Use higher ground and attack it, as its ranged attacks can be easily dodged and its melee attacks will be incapable of damaging you.

- Despite being different than a Foot Soldier and sharing none of the Foot Soldier's abilities, it appears in the "Soldier" wave in the Flag of Power.
- This may be because it shares several visual aspects with the Foot Soldier, such as the helmet and the rocket pack on it's back.
- It also has a military mark on its arms signifying that it is a corporal.
- Robo-Zombies have their own unique icon in the full game, although in the Beta they shared their icon with the Foot Soldier.
- In the Beta it only gave the player the XP for a "Vanquished Zombie," but in the full game it gives them the XP for a "Vanquished Zombie Hero".
- Robo-Zombies cannot be swallowed or eaten in any way by the Chomper. If you attempt to eat them from the back or front, they simply spin, like when they use the Heavy Punch, and if you try to eat them from below with burrow, they keep your mouth open with both metal feet with both hands on their hips, chuckling and looking forward.
- In both cases, you still have to wait a few seconds for the Chomper to chew and digest, despite not having eaten anything. This happens with some other zombies in the original Garden Warfare and Garden Warfare 2, and is likely a developer oversight.
- Despite being entirely robotic, they can still be turned into a Stinky Goat with Goatify.
- It shares this trait with the Future Imp.
- Despite having a rocket pack with rockets on their back, they never actually use it to jump high or fire rockets at you.
- However, in the cutscene in the Agent Citron mission "Showdown," the Champion Robo-Zombie who guards the key points the rockets on its back at you. After the cutscene ends, the rockets are facing upwards again.
- In Battle for Neighborville, however, it uses his rockets now, using them to jump upwards, similar to the Foot Soldier's Rocket Jump.
- However, the rocket jump ability actually exists in the game files in Garden Warfare 2 but is unused.
- Despite being robotic, this zombie is not stunned for longer than usual by the Citron's EMPeach.
