Cyborg Zombie is a galactic super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Beastly class. He costs 2 to play, and has 3/2. He has the Hunt trait, and his ability adds a Vengeful Cyborg into the zombie hero's hand when he is destroyed.
His trait and ability is a reference to the Terminator's persistence to complete its mission, and his description references the Terminator's catchphrase "I'll be back." It is also a reference to the fact that Cyborg Zombie will return as Vengeful Cyborg once he is destroyed.

However, his ability is what makes him shine as you can earn a stronger version of this zombie when he is destroyed. This is useful if you are playing this early game so you can play expensive cards in the late game. Since he has low health and the Hunt trait, it is very easy for the plant hero to destroy it. Once you gain Vengeful Cyborg from this zombie, you can play him on turn 5 or above to distract the plant hero from playing powerful plants which will most likely take 5 damage. With Vengeful Cyborg, you can give him the Frenzy trait or a boost from Vitamin Z or Area 22 to stress the plant hero from playing strong plants.
Since he is a science zombie, this zombie works well with Immorticia since he can synergize with Zombot Drone Engineer, Gadget Scientist, and Interdimensional Zombie. This can work effectively if Cyborg Zombie is destroyed as you can play Vengeful Cyborg and take a huge advantage of the science synergy.
You can treat this zombie like a powerful version of Dog Walker, but except when he is destroyed, he can return to the zombie hero's hand and become stronger. Since he has low health, you can play any plant that can do at least 2 damage or use a trick like Banana Bomb or Berry Blast to destroy him. But be prepared in the late game once the zombie hero plays Vengeful Cyborg, as he is stronger than his original version. To destroy Vengeful Cyborg, using Squash or Shamrocket can destroy him with ease.
Be careful of the order of cards that you play when Cyborg Zombie is on the field, as you may want weaker cards to deal with this zombie while other cards attack your opponent directly.
- On the background of the Galactic Gardens battlefield, he appears as a cameo. However, his right eye has black sclera and a red pupil like Vengeful Cyborg's.
- When he is destroyed, he explodes, leaving only his head and a couple of bolts. Then a hovering device with a magnet appears, attracts the head and bolts, and leaves. This is shared with Vengeful Cyborg.
