In its debut game, Plants vs. Zombies 2, as well as the Chinese version, the Zombot Sharktronic Sub is the boss for Big Wave Beach, appearing in Big Wave Beach - Day 32 and potentially in Modern Day - Day 33.
In this game, the Zombot Sharktronic Sub summons all possible Big Wave Beach zombies, excluding Beach Flag Zombies and Fisherman Zombies. In later phases, it is capable of inhaling both plants and zombies in the two lanes it occupies, killing them instantaneously, though this attack can be halted prematurely if it swallows a Tangle Kelp. Additionally, it commandeers a school of sharks, which both attack on its behalf and prevent plants from being placed on them.
