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

Barrel Zombie was a zombie from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. He acted like normal zombies usually do, walking and eating plants. However, when his barrel was destroyed, he ran very fast and did not eat any plants, except for Wall-nuts, Hard-nuts, and unarmed Popcorns directly in his path.


He is named after a barrel, a hollow cylindrical container traditionally made from wooden staves bound by wooden or metal hoops.

The barrel can be destroyed in one shot from a Flaming Pea, rendering him much easier to destroy. His 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 him 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.



  • His barrel has three X's on it.
    • This is because barrels with X's on them carry alcoholic beverages, it was implied that the Barrel Zombie's barrel used to contain some type of alcoholic beverage before being worn by the Barrel Zombie.
  • If his barrel was broken while it he frozen by ZombiFreeze or a Zombie Zapper, he will run in place.
  • He appears to be similar to the Newspaper Zombie and the Sunday Edition Zombie, as all three are in their underwear and have an armor that covers them.
    • Additionally, when their armor is destroyed, they become faster.
    • They also share this trait with Pharaoh Zombie.
      • However, he runs from embarrassment, while Newspaper Zombie and Sunday Edition Zombie run of anger and Pharaoh Zombie runs because of his heavy sarcophagus being destroyed.
  • He acted like a reversed Rocket Zombie, as he gained speed when his armor is destroyed.
  • He and Ice Block Zombie shared the same weakness, which was the Flaming Pea.
  • He was the first new zombie that appears in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
  • He was 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 him are blurred out.
    • He is one of the three zombies to have a visible butt crack in the whole series, the other ones are Engineer and Gargantuar Zombie.
  • He was the first zombie to wear a barrel. The second is Barrel Pirate.
