Plants vs. Zombies Wiki
For the version in Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Zombot Plank Walker.

Zombot Plank Walker is a premium legendary zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Sneaky Icon.pngSneaky class. It costs 8BrainPvZH.png to play and has 6StrengthPvZH.png/6HeartPvZH.png. It has the Amphibious and PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough traits, and its ability makes two random pirate zombies, excluding another Zombot Plank Walker, on random lanes excluding the lanes occupied by a zombie.

It is based on the zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2 with the same name and appearance. However, it is controlled by an Imp Commander, has nothing on the sail, and has no Imp tied to the ship. It also gained a new laser attack.

Its description is a reference to its Plants vs. Zombies 2 ability where it floods the field with Pirate Imps.

Update 1.12.6



This zombie is very dangerous alone since it alone has above average stats and the PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough trait. In addition, it can make two other pirate zombies, six of which are legendary (Barrel of Deadbeards, Shieldcrusher Viking, Interstellar Bounty Hunter, Intergalactic Warlord, Zombot Aerostatic Gondola, and Gargantuar-Throwing Gargantuar). However, while it can make powerful ones like these, it can also make weaker ones like Swabbie and Imp Commander.

It is best to play this on the aquatic lane as it can trouble your opponent and grant it immunity to some powerful plants and instant-kill tricks like Super-Phat Beets and Lawnmower. Otherwise, if you play Zombot Plank Walker on any other lane, it may make one of the two pirates on the aquatic lane, which can be either a Swabbie, an Unthawed Viking, or a Zombot Aerostatic Gondola.

For extra information, here is the list of pirates Zombot Plank Walker can make:

If you want to wreak even more havoc, use this with either Swashbuckler Zombie as he will boost Zombot Plank Walker every time it attacks due to its PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough trait, or Mixed-Up Gravedigger to reactivate its ability, as well as taking your opponent by surprise as they are unable to know what lane it will emerge out of. Also, while Captain Flameface has no effect on this zombie due to it already having the PvZH Strikethrough Icon.pngStrikethrough trait, he can still be used to support the other pirate zombies Zombot Plank Walker makes.

As for synergies with zombies in other classes go, Gadget Scientist can make it do some devastating bonus attacks due to its science tribe, and Unlife of the Party will gain +3StrengthPvZH.png/+3HeartPvZH.png when you play this. However, only Super Brainz, Huge-Gigantacus and Impfinity can pull this off respectively.


Zombot Plank Walker is really dangerous as it will instantly do huge damage to all plants, including plants with the Team-Up trait, and to you. To lower or avoid the damage done, use Water Balloons or Weed Whack to lower Zombot Plank Walker's stats, or PvZH Frozen Icon.pngFreeze it to get some time. But for most, try to use instant-kill cards like Squash or Doom-Shroom, which can also help with some pirates made by it as well in case of the latter.

Although most likely, if the two random pirates made is at least a Shieldcrusher Viking, you will want to destroy that first. Otherwise, you may not block any attacks at all.

Unless you need to stall or it can ensure your victory, do not Bounce this zombie as it can be replayed to make even more pirates, which would increase the likelihood of a Shieldcrusher Viking or Intergalactic Warlord being made.

  • The zombie controlling the machine is an Imp Commander. However, the Imp Commander on Zombot Plank Walker sounds different from the original.
  • There was a glitch where Zombot Plank Walker would become invincible when Swashbuckler Zombie was on the field, as Swashbuckler Zombie's ability animation played before Zombot Plank Walker could play its "When destroyed" animation.
    • However, it could still be destroyed by instant-kill tricks.
