Roman Caesar Zombie is a zombie encountered in Penny's Pursuit in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is a General zombie like Cardio Zombie and Z-Mech, appearing only on the 8th column and having several different stages of attacks.
He is able to promote Roman zombies in a similar manner to Zombie King, and will also throw bottles of salad dressing onto the player's plants.
Roman Caesar Zombie (specifically the imp) is based on the Roman statesman Julius Caesar, while his ability to throw salad dressing is based on how it is a common ingredient in Caesar Cardini's namesake salad, which was commonly misattributed to Julius Caesar instead.

Roman Caesar Zombie is a very dangerous zombie when you're fighting him. He will throw salad dressing to turn plants into salad, which will speed up all zombies in the lane. He can also promote Roman Zombies into Centurion Zombies, as well as spawning some Roman Zombies and Roman Shield Zombies.
If Roman Caesar Zombie is about to throw salad dressing at a plant, you can shovel up one of your plants if he is aiming far into your defenses. When the zombies speed up, use slowing plants like Snow Pea to slow them down. If you are not able to beat the sped up zombies, try to stall them using Defensive Plants or stalling plants until the salad disappears.
When it promotes Roman Zombies into Centurion Zombies, you can use Magnet-shroom to pull off the Centurion Zombies' galea. If there are many Centurion Zombies, and if Roman Caesar Zombie keeps promoting Roman Zombies into Centurions, Magnet-shroom is especially useful when fed with Plant Food. Another strategy is to use poisonous plants, as they ignore zombie armor (though it may take a while for the poison to defeat the zombies, especially in higher difficulties in Penny's Pursuit)
Roman Caesar Zombie also can spawn Roman Zombies and Roman Shield Zombies from the ground, making the battle against it a bit more difficult. If there are Roman Shield Zombies being spawned from the ground, use piercing plants such as Laser Bean.
