The Sharpest Carpet on the Market!

Spikeweed is a Common Groundcover plant in Plants vs. Zombies 3. He costs 3 sun, and attacks zombies that walk over him.



Spikeweed is based on the plant from Plants vs. Zombies, with the same name. The appearance resembles the Plants vs. Zombies 2 version.

His ability to deal extra damage to obstacles is a reference to their use to counter obstacle-based zombies in previous games, such as Zomboni, Barrel Roller Zombie, and Pianist Zombie.

The name of his Plant Food is likely a reference to the famous Mortal Kombat line "get over here" said by Scorpion.

His Tacobility is based on the plant with the same name and ability.

Anyone that steps on Spikeweed finds he's kind of
like a sharp carpet. A "sharpet," if you will. He
prefers "carparp," but that's him.


Plant Food effect

Spikeweed's Plant Food ability is named Get over Here. Spikeweed will send out thorns across the whole lane, pulling in zombies closer to where he is located.


Spikeweed's Tacobility is Spikerock, which allows Spikeweed to attack with extra damage and gives him three layers of armor.


Spikeweed is not usually used as a primary source of damage due to the fact that it is only contained in one small spot. However, what sets Spikeweed apart from other offensive plants is the fact that he can't be destroyed by normal means, meaning Spikeweed is more likely to survive a sketchy situation than a normal plant and can allow an easier chance at recovery.

Spikeweed is good for killing zombies with special attacks, such as the Pitchfork Zombie or the Donut Roller, while one can launch plants behind him, Spikeweed is immune to this attack. Donut Roller also does no damage to the Spikeweed.

Spikeweed is better when paired with wall plants, such as Wall-Nut or Buttercup, as he can do damage to zombies as they are being stalled by these plants.
