ZCorp Consultant is a ZCorp Zombie in Penny's Pursuit in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When she appears on the field, she will shove most zombies on her lane to another lane, above or below her as well as pushing them forward approximately one tile. She sometimes can switch lanes, go backwards or even leave the lawn when there are green quotation marks of "!?!" above her head.

ZCorp Consultant is one of the the most dangerous zombies yet to come. She can shove any zombies one tile forward and to any lane above or below her every time she walks on her lane, even Gargantuars. She can also switch lanes when there is a green mark appearing above her head, but it is unpredictable whether she will move to which lane. This requires multi-lane or piercing attacking plants, such as Snapdragon, Bloomerang, and others to defeat this zombie. Do not use Garlic on her, as she can already switch lanes as well as potentially pushing zombies into the lane(s) with Garlic, making the plant useless and the whole level much harder than usual, especially if the levels have flowers as a bonus objective. Spear-mint may be useful against her, as the high level Spikerocks can give high damage.
While some ZCorp Consultants enter the lawn with normal speed, some can walk with a speed boost, helping them travel from the ninth column to the first column within a few seconds as well as giving her higher eating rate. In this case, instant-kill plants can easily miss the target, therefore good timing is recommended. One can use Grimrose to instantly take her out or try to block her with defensive plants. Magnifying Grass can also defeat her in one hit, so that is another option to consider. Powered Murkadamia Nut is a viable choice as her eating speed is much faster than other zombies - this can be further illustrated in Penny's Pursuit, where she can attack faster, especially in Extra Hot levels. Avoid using close-range plants against a boosted ZCorp Consultant, such as Chomper or Bonk Choy, since she is very fast and can defeat them almost on touch.
It is very useful to bring Blover since zombies pushed by her have a small airborne interval, similar to those flung by the Stegosaurus, therefore they can be blown away. Having the Heavy Watering Perk selected and spamming Blover will neutralize this threat almost completely.
