Zombot 1000 is a premium legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Beastly Icon.pngBeastly class. It costs 9BrainPvZH.png to play and has 9StrengthPvZH.png/9HeartPvZH.png. It does not have any traits, and its ability instantly destroys all plants on the field when it is played.

Origins

Its design is mostly based on the original Zombot in Plants vs. Zombiesthough this one features a completly enclosed cab. The actual body of the original Zombot is unseen, so it is more likely that it is based on the Zombot that can be seen in the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 maps, Zombopolis and Z-Tech Factory.

Its description may be implying that it is the 1000th Zombot made.

Strategies

With

With outstanding stats of 9StrengthPvZH.png/9HeartPvZH.png and the ability to destroy all plants on the field, Zombot 1000 is a huge carry if played properly. Generally, though, this should be played as a last resort rather than a finisher, as there are better and cheaper finishers anyway (Octo Zombie, for example). But it can be used exactly the same way too, with some help from other cards.

PvZH Anti-Hero Icon.pngAnti-Hero zombies such as Stealthy Imp and Walrus Rider, as well as PvZH Truestrike Icon.pngBullseye zombies such as Shieldcrusher Viking greatly benefit from its ability since there will be no plants in their way, enabling quicker/safer takedown. However, these combos are only normally possible as Brain Freeze and Immorticia, respectively.

Unfortunately, zombies play first, so do note that even though Zombot 1000 will allow you to catch up by clearing your opponent's plants, your opponent can rebuild their defenses, destroy Zombot 1000 (or block Zombot 1000 with a cheap plant), and then push for a win after you play it. Its late-game accessibility also makes it helpless against rush decks, and a late-game control deck is pretty much necessary to run it. To get around the first issue, you can activate Zombot 1000's ability after the Plants Play phase via Teleport, Teleportation Zombie, Graveyard, Cursed Gargolith, or Mixed-Up Gravedigger, or play it when your opponent has very few or no cards left in their hand. To use the first two one must play as Immortica and for the last three, Brain Freeze. Additionally, while Teleport is usually an effective trick, Teleportation Zombie can't survive for long, Graveyard can be overridden, Cursed Gargolith requires a setup, and Mixed-Up Gravedigger can't be played on the same turn as Zombot 1000. But the disadvantages end here if the opponent lacks the counters.

Since this is a science zombie, Immorticia can have it benefit from Zombot Drone Engineer and Gadget Scientist, and activate Interdimensional Zombie's ability. However, Interdimensional Zombie is only suited for the early game and Zombot 1000 is better off the opposite. Also, due to it being a Gargantuar zombie, you can give it an offensive trait with Smashing Gargantuar or Wizard Gargantuar for more devastating results, turning it into an unstoppable heavy hitter that can wreak havoc against your opponent easily. For non-offensive synergy, King of the Grill can draw lots of gourmet cards when it activates its ability to destroy all plants, The Smash can have some Gargologists on the field to play it earlier, and Brain Freeze can combine it with Cursed Gargolith to activate its ability every turn, entirely shutting down all the opponent's strategies unless confronted with a Smarty/Guardian Hero with anti-gravestone cards.

But if Grapes of Wrath or Punish-Shroom along with many mushrooms is on the field, you must be wary of playing Zombot 1000 as you will receive a significant amount of damage unless you block it, or worst-case scenario, if Galacta-Cactus or Pear Cub is on the field. The Smash, in this case, can play Planetary Gladiator to negate the damage if he sees the need.

Against

In general, the most effective method is to defeat the opponent with rush decks before it can be played. Due to its ability to destroy every single plant on the field when played, it can easily punish you for swarming the field with plants (and playing tricks to benefit them). If you are against a Beastly hero running a late-game control deck, do not spend all your cards recklessly should you go late into the game, but instead, try to save some cards so you can rebuild your defenses if they are ravaged by Zombot 1000; otherwise, it is very likely that you will be defeated soon. Also, make sure you have a card that can either instantly destroy it, such as Lawnmower, or at least stop its attack, such as Iceberg Lettuce, because even after its ability has activated, Zombot 1000 is still a force to be reckoned with its massive stats. Winter Squash can deal with it easily if the Zombot 1000 is frozen, destroying it instantly. Bouncing it is an option if you can win this turn with it out of the way.

Cornucopia can counter Zombot 1000's ability, as he will fill all your lanes with plants. However, beware if the opponent can play another Zombot 1000 or can re-use his ability.

Trivia

  • In the beta version of the game, the satellite dish on its head was layered incorrectly and appeared behind the antenna.
  • Its ability animation is very similar to Zombot's Wrath and the Zombot in Plants vs. Zombies, as all three shoot fireballs to harm plants.
  • It has the highest base strength stat of any fighter in the game without the help of any traits or abilities.
  • If you listen closely, its ability animation uses the same sound effects as Astro-Shroom's ability.
