Snorkel Zombie is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Snorkel Zombies approach the house by submerging underwater, avoiding most attacks until forced out of the water by eating a plant or leaving the water.
As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Snorkel Zombie has appeared in three games.

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as all Chinese spin-off games based on it, Snorkel Zombie is the twelfth Zombie encountered in Adventure Mode, first appearing in Level 3-3. Snorkel Zombie can only appear in the Pool lanes, diving in and avoiding all straight-shot attacks until he reaches a plant. Snorkel Zombie is the only Pool-only zombie to lack an on-land counterpart.
Snorkel Zombie is the star of the mini-game Zombiquarium, where the player must spend sun to buy more Snorkel Zombies so they can give the player more sun back, a single Snorkel Zombie costing 100 sun and the trophy costing 1,000. The player has 20 seconds to feed a Snorkel Zombie before it dies however, feeding the Snorkel Zombie by dropping a brain down to eat, costing 5 sun each.
In Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition, he reappeared in a different diving uniform with a reed to breathe under water instead of a snorkel.

Snorkel Zombie returns in Plants vs. Zombies 2, as the first special Zombie appearing in Big Wave Beach. Snorkel Zombie works the same way as the original game, submerging underwater to avoid straight-shooting attacks until he is forced to submerge. However, due to the differences of the Pool of the first game and the Ocean in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Snorkel Zombie can be easier or harder to deal with depending on the level, as every lane now has a water lane, but end at a certain point, eventually forcing Snorkel Zombie to leave the water.
Snorkel Zombie has 150 more health than the previous game (350 DPS versus 200 DPS) and has received a redesign, his snorkel facing the other direction, losing his tank top, and having two bright yellow flippers rather than one dark red flipper.
