ZCorp Chair Racer is a zombie that can only be encountered in Penny's Pursuit in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It zooms in towards the player's plants, and damages the plant that collides with its chair. When the chair collides with a plant, ZCorp Chair Racer will be catapulted by 2.5 tiles, similar to Rodeo Legend Zombie.
ZCorp Chair Racer is somewhat based off chair racing, an unusual racing competition that was mostly big and popular in Japan. The word "ZCorp" on his name being themed around office is reminiscent to how many people in Japan using office chairs in the chair racing competition.
ZCorp Chair Racer absorbs 1300 damage per shot with its chair and 500 damage per shot without it. It loses its arms at 250 damage per shot before dying at 500 damage per shot. Chairs that collide with a plant get damaged for 5000 damage per shot.

ZCorp Chair Racer brings fun and spontaneity to the zcorporate experience.
ZCorp Chair Racer is not that big of a threat unless the player doesn't set up their defenses much earlier before it enters the lawn. The more chair racers there are, the harder the level will become. The player can use Puff-shroom in front of it and let the ZCorp Chair Racer launch into the air. Then, plant a single Tall-nut in front of it at the right time, preventing it from leaping further into your defenses. Primal Wall-nut is also a good choice since he can survive even after ZCorp Chair Racer collides with him. Aside from these, the player can destroy him instantly without launching himself off with Explode-O-Nut, since he will do a huge damage on impact after colliding a plant, and Explode-O-Nut will explode instantly when he collides with it.
Another strategy is by using Chard Guard after he launched into the air; he can launch back the chair racer after landing next to him accidentally. The player also can use Spikeweed, Spikerock, Cactus, and Celery Stalker as a trap for him after launching.
- Currently, despite not being an Imp, ZCorp Chair Racer can be shrunk into the oblivion and will release a gas after eating an Imp Pear. This seems likely a bug.
- He loses both of his arms after losing only one during his walking animation and launched animation. This is a visual bug.
- ZCorp Chair Racer can appear sitting on the chair or standing by its own in the seed selection screen.
