For the version in Plants vs. Zombies, see Trash Can Zombie.

Trash Can Zombie is a premium uncommon zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Hearty IconHearty class. He costs 3BrainPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability shields him for the current turn once he is revealed.


His trash can resembles the one seen on the zombie with the same name, although Trash Can Zombie hides in the trash can instead of holding it.


  • Class: Hearty
  • Tribes: Professional Barrel Zombie
  • Trait: Gravestone
  • Ability: When revealed: This can't be hurt this turn.
  • Set - Rarity: Premium - Uncommon

Card description

It's dark and quiet in there. He finds it soothing. That's what no one gets.

Update history

Update 1.2.12

  • Strength change: 3StrengthPvZH → 2StrengthPvZH
  • Health change: 2HeartPvZH → 3HeartPvZH

Update 1.22.12

  • Tribe change: Garbage → Professional



Since Trash Can Zombie is invulnerable to all attacks when revealed, you should play him either in front of a plant to stall a turn while damaging that plant further or any empty lane to hit your opponent for 2 damage.

Additionally, he can take out most weak plants, so using him to guarantee a kill can be useful. If plants like Wild Berry and Carrotillery are threats to you, you can use Trash Can Zombie to block their attacks and subsequently destroy them. Trash Can Zombie can also be a good counter to Re-Peat Moss, as Trash Can Zombie has the Gravestone trait, and combined with his ability, he can block Re-Peat Moss for an entire turn. However, Grass Knuckles can play Template:PvZH Link and Gardening Gloves, while Green Shadow can play Grave Mistake, so beware of these cards.

As of update 1.22.12, this zombie now is in the professional tribe, meaning he can synergize with Zombie Middle Manager. However, since Zombie Middle Manager's ability mainly revolves around other professional zombies taking damage, Trash Can Zombie can only active Zombie Middle Manager's ability after the turn he is played.


If you predict Trash Can Zombie being played, play a weak plant such as Small-Nut or Template:PvZH Link to waste his ability.

As for Trash Can Zombie himself, he is vulnerable to instant-kill tricks like Template:PvZHLink, Template:PvZHLink, and Template:PvZHLink, and stat-lowering tricks like Weed Whack (which turns Trash Can Zombie into a useless 1-health wall), but only after the Fight! phase if In-Crypted was not used. Briar Rose, Template:PvZH Link, and Winter Squash's abilities can destroy Trash Can Zombie as well, so do not rely on Trash Can Zombie when trying to destroy them. Grave Buster also poses a threat to Trash Can Zombie, as it is the only card that can destroy it on the same turn the latter is played.

  • There is a visual glitch where if Trash Can Zombie is revealed again after he loses his invulnerability, such as through Mixed-Up Gravedigger, In-Crypted or any card that gives the Bounce effect, he will lose his trash can immediately after he is revealed.
  • He is mentioned in Interdimensional Zombie's description, alongside Space Pirate.
  • He, Template:PvZHLink, Zombie Coach, and Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 are the only zombies that shield zombies.
    • Coincidentally, they are all from the Hearty class.
