A Zombucks

Zombucks were a currency item dropped by zombies and given to the player as rewards for completing quests and beating stages in the Road Trip mode in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. They were used in town mode to buy and upgrade buildings and to place decorations. Once the player finished all the levels of Cadaver Cavern, they could use 3000 Zombucks to buy a fifth seed slot for use in battles. A sixth slot could also be bought once the player reaches U of Z.

Zombucks appeared as dark purple banknotes with a skull in the middle. When bundled together, they were held by a light purple band with a skull on it.


Its name was a portmanteau of the words "zombie" and "bucks." They could also be a reference to Mom Bucks from Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
