Cozmic Brainz is a Super Rare variant of Super Brainz in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was previewed in the Multiplayer Beta trailer, whilst revealed in a screenshot on Gary Clay's Twitter page.[1] His "special ability" is that he can charge up punches. An uncharged punch deals 20 damage. If he charges up a punch to level 3, which deals 70 damage, he will, if the enemy is defeated by the punch, cause a wormhole to momentarily appear behind the defeated enemy which the enemy then flies into before disappearing, making them unrevivable.

His ranged attack is not a laser unlike other Super Brainz variants, it is actually a multi-projectile attack that deals 9 to 11 damage per shot, depending on the range.


Stickerbook description

In-game description

Heroic Kick

Cozmic Brainz unleashes a forward or a dive down kick, dealing a large amount of damage to the first plant hit.

Super Ultra Ball

Cozmic Brainz fires (as the name suggests) a super ultra powerful ball which deals lots of damage to plants it makes contact with the ball. It can also do splash damage.

Turbo Twister

Cozmic Brainz spins around rapidly, damaging and sucking in plants he hits. He also gets a small speed boost and a large resistance to damage.

Super Multi Ball

An alternate ability for the Super Ultra Ball, Cozmic Brainz will throw three smaller balls when it is used.



Cozmic Brainz is extremely useful in game modes like Team Vanquish, as he can make Plants unrevivable with his attacks, preventing Plants from reviving the victim and subtracting a point from the Zombies. He is also useful for protecting Graveyards as he can make Plants unrevivable so they cannot revive each other while capturing, delaying their return to the front line. He is also useful for stopping Plant teleporters being built as he can make the Roses that are building it unrevivable, so they can't be revived to set up the teleporter afterwards, even if Cozmic Brainz falls in combat.

Try to deal much damage to an enemy, and then charge up your fist, and deal a punch that will render them unrevivable.

It is also possible to use some of his abilities to perform this combo: using Cozmic Fists level three to attack the victim in front of him, a Heroic Kick to launch them, and finally, if possible, unleash the Super Ultra Ball at them as long as you aim perfectly.


Cozmic Brainz is generally considered to be one of the weaker Super Brainz variants, due to his odd ranged attack and his punches being very weak without being charged. Even though this is the case, you should not drop your guard if you're on low health while near him, as he may have a punch charged up and send you straight to the death-cam while leaving unable to be revived. This trait of his level 3 Punch is very dangerous in Team Vanquish if you are badly injured, as his level 3 Punch, although uncommon to be pulled off, will give the zombies a guaranteed point.
