Carries a torch that can instantly destroy your plants.

Since they are practically identical to Explorer Zombie, do whatever you do to kill Explorer Zombie to them, like using Winter Melon, Snow Pea, Cryo-shroom or Cold Snapdragon. Just don't let them get near your plants because like their counterpart, they will instantly burn them. You can use Iceberg Lettuce to freeze them and extinguish their torch. You can also use Hurrikale because not only can he use his freezing ability to extinguish the torch, but he can also push the zombie away from your plants.
- According to their Almanac entry, they are Explorer Zombie's ancestor. However, Kongfu World takes place in the 1600s, while Ancient Egypt takes place thousands of years ago.
