Barrel Zombie gets all his barrels from Barrel Zombie Discount Barrel Supply Chain, which was really struggling before the zombie apocalypse.

Barrel Zombie is a zombie from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. It acts like normal zombies usually do, walking and eating plants. However, when its barrel is destroyed, it runs very fast and does not eat any plants, except for the Wall-nuts, Hard-nuts, and unarmed Popcorns directly in their path.

The barrel can be destroyed in one shot from a Flaming Pea, rendering it much easier to destroy. Its speed doubles when the barrel is destroyed and ignores all plants other than a non-adjacent Wall-nut, Hard-nut, or an unarmed Popcorn.

When using Barrel Zombie in other towns, making Barrel Zombie faster after the barrel is broken, which can cause it to go extremely fast and avoid other plants makes a good way of entering the house quickly. However, Wall-nuts and other barriers can stop this.



  • Barrel Zombie's barrel has three X's on it. Because barrels with X's on them carry alcoholic beverages, it is implied that the Barrel Zombie's barrel used to contain some type of alcoholic beverage before being worn by the Barrel Zombie.
  • If the Barrel Zombie's barrel is broken while it is frozen by ZombiFreeze or a Zombie Zapper, then it will run in place. This trait is shared with Rocket Zombie and Ice Block Zombie.
  • It appears to be similar to the Newspaper Zombie, as both are in their underwear and have an armor that covers them. Additionally, when their armor is destroyed, they both become faster.
    • They share this trait with Pharaoh Zombie.
      • However, Barrel Zombie runs from embarrassment, Newspaper Zombie runs of anger and Pharaoh Zombie runs because of its heavy sarcophagus being destroyed.
  • Barrel Zombie acts like a reversed Rocket Zombie, as it gains speed when its armor is destroyed.
  • Barrel Zombie and Ice Block Zombie share the same weakness, which is the Flaming Pea.
  • Barrel Zombie is the first new zombie that appears in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
  • Barrel Zombie is featured at the end of the Plants vs. Zombies Adventures game trailer.
    • In the trailer, a pea is seen destroying the barrel. When this occurs, the actual zombie appears naked, as parts of it are blurred out.
    • Barrel Zombie is one of the three zombies to have a visible butt crack in the whole series, the other ones are Engineer and Gargantuar Zombie.
