Similar to the Impkata, the Scallywag Mech will spin around in circles for a few seconds, shooting constantly, dealing damage to all plants around it.

Strategies

With

When the Scallywag Imp calls in his Scallywag Mech, he can be a living nightmare. His abilities and primary weapons are excellent for crowd control, and he can easily destroy plants from a long ways away with the Hooligan Howitzer, dealing 40 damage for a direct hit (in addition to dealing splash damage) and pulverize close-range threats with the Cluster Cannons, dealing 35 damage per blast, but you should never attack a big crowd of plants. Try firing the Crusty Gigabomb at the crowd to scatter them, use the Hooligan Howitzer to bombard any assailants or snipers into oblivion and mop up the rest with the Cluster Cannon. Should your vessel be surrounded, you can use the Peg Leg Kata or abandon ship with the Explosive Escape, laying waste to anyone unfortunate enough to be near you.

Against

Once Scallywag Imp deploys his mech, be extremely careful, you are effectively dealing with a supercharged version of Captain Deadbeard, meaning he can deal high damage to a given target at any range at any time. The only way to effectively deal with the Scallywag Mech is to use a team against it and even then, the mech's high damage and health can make taking it down a challenge. As always, watch out if you ever go to close as the enemy can evacuate from the Mech and wipe you out. Use ice elemental characters and the Citron's EMPeach to disrupt the Mech's normal function and disable most of its crowd control abilities and take him down, as he won't be able to use the Explosive Escape when stunned. The Future Cactus is also a very good character against this Mech, as around four fully charged shots can vanquish him.

Trivia

  • He is the only Z-Mech variant whose has both long-range and short-range primary weapons.
    • The Scallywag Mech is more or less a massively scaled-up version of Captain Deadbeard, retaining his ability to alternate between two different firing modes by using the zoom button.
      • However, unlike Captain Deadbeard, Scallywag Mech's short-range weapon takes up 1 ammo, while the long-range weapon takes up 2 ammo whereas Captain Deadbeard's weapon does the opposite.
      • The Scallywag Mech's taunt resembles Captain Deadbeard's Tap Tap Hero gesture, further suggesting the mech being based on Deadbeard.
  • This Z-Mech is the second Z-Mech to have 400 health, the other being the Drake Mech.
  • This Z-Mech is the only Z-Mech that represents an actual vehicle or mode of transport, in this case, a pirate ship.
    • Although, technically, Pylon Mech is somewhat similar to a racecar due to its using wheels instead of legs to move.
  • Most Z-Mech entrances involve the Mech picking up the Imp and placing them inside(or something to that effect). Scallywag Imp, however, squeezes his way into the cockpit of his Z-Mech, unlike all the rest.
  • This Z-Mech is probably based on the Zombot Plank Walker from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • This Z-Mech is the second Z-Mech to use a magazine-based ammunition feed system and not have infinite ammo. The first is the Pylon Mech.
