All-Star Zombie is quite a menace to your opponent both defensively and offensively, as his Armored 1 trait allows him to withstand attacks more efficiently, while his Frenzy trait allows him to plow through weak plants and do damage to your opponent. He is especially good against rush decks, which tend to include plants like Shroom for Two and Pair of Pears.
Since he is in the sports tribe, Team Mascot can increase his stats to make him survive longer and hit harder, while Zombie Coach can make him unable to be hurt for a turn. Ancient Vimpire can boost him every time he destroys a plant, although this combo can only usually be done by The Smash . However, he is still a great threat on his own, so he won't have much of a problem fitting into many decks.
All-Star Zombie sure is a dangerous zombie, but there are a few ways to counter him.
The first way is to use plants to deal with him, such as:
- Plants that can survive an attack from this zombie, like Wall-Nut or Water Chestnut.
- Plants with enough strength to destroy him in one hit, such as Pecanolith.
- Plants with abilities that can destroy him, like Guacodile or Winter Squash.
The second way is to play tricks. Stat-reducing tricks such as Water Balloons, Weed Whack or Scorched Earth can make him easier to deal with as these tricks, ignoring his Armored 1 trait. Instant-kill tricks like Lawnmower, Squash, Shamrocket, or Doom-Shroom are more expensive, but can completely get rid of him.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for All-Star Zombie (PvZH).
- His card description is an excerpt of the original Football Zombie's Suburban Almanac entry in Plants vs. Zombies.
- The same applies to Doom-Shroom.
- With update 1.2.11, Football Zombie was renamed to All-Star Zombie, probably for consistency with the Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare versions.
- Even though his description says he does not know what a football is, he attacks plants by throwing a football at them. This attack is also shared with his variant in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.
- In the title screen, All-Star Zombie's helmet has the badge symbol that represents zombie heroes, though he is a different skull in-game.
- Also, All-Star Zombie's shirt seems to be missing the skull he has on the title screen.
- He, Smashing Gargantuar, Imp, and Newspaper Zombie are the only zombies introduced in Modern Day to be in this game.
- He, Deep Sea Gargantuar, Laser Bean, Jugger-Nut, and Snapdragon are the only super-rare cards without any abilities.
- However, he and Snapdragon are the only ones to be super-rare since the game was released, as the other three were formerly rare before they had their rarity changed since update 1.16.10.
- In the Plants vs. Zombies Heroes launch trailer, he had his Football Cannon from the Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare series, though he does not have it in-game.
