Zombie bucket1

The bucket is a metallic headwear worn by Buckethead Zombies to protect themselves from being damaged. It is one of the strongest types of headwear in the main series. Since it is metallic, it can be attracted by a Magnet-shroom.

The bucket is a very strong piece of headwear, so the player should choose high-damaging plants against it, such as Winter Melon or Citron. Take note that it is a metallic headwear, so using the Magnet-shroom or the Magnet Plant can be a good idea as they can steal it, making the Buckethead Zombies easier to defeat.

Buckethead concept

Buckethead Zombie's concept design

  • It is the first armor in the game which can be stolen by Magnet-shroom.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies 2, even though certain buckets are mostly made out of other non-magnetic materials such as wood or stone, they can still be attracted by Magnet-shroom (most likely because they may contain some kind of magnetic material in them).
  • The screen door that the Screen Door Zombie uses has the same health as the bucket.
