According to my data, iron and other metals were routinely put to use during the Dark Ages. Thus, Magnet-shroom should make an excellent ally here.

Dark Ages - Night 16 is the sixteenth level of Dark Ages in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The Zombie King makes its first appearance in this level. After completing this level, the player receives a money bag.

Difficulty

The Zombie King is a formidable threat in this level. It will camp out on the right-most column, similar to Imp Cannon, and will turn any Peasant Zombie variant into a Knight Zombie. Because of the huge crowds of zombies in this level, the Zombie King has many chances to make more zombies much more difficult to deal with. Luckily, the player receives Magnet-shroom the level before, which will get rid of the Knight's helm, essentially countering Zombie King. However, the Zombie King is fast and can make another helm very quickly, so a good set-up must be in order to quickly defeat hordes of zombies. The Jester Zombie is yet again present, so projectile based plants are not recommended to use. Wizard Zombies are minimal in this level, and do not cause much problem. Necromancy ambushes are very frequent and dangerous. Tombstones will constantly respawn and cause Conehead Peasants and Buckethead Peasants to get deep into defenses. Grave Buster should be used to dispose of graves. However, with the constant supply of Tombstones, instant use plants like Cherry Bomb should also be used.

Waves

The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategies

Strategy 1

Created by Uselessguy
  • Suggested plants
  • Start by planting three columns of Sun-shroom, cause the graves will spawn very fast. Plant a Fume-shroom or Puff-shroom if you have eight slots to kill typical zombies.
  • When a Conehead Peasant enters, immediately plant a Magnet-shroom to be ready for Zombie King. It will enter very soon.
    • Do not forget to plant one column of Laser Bean and two columns of Fume-shroom.
  • When a Zombie King enters, you should have at least three Magnet-shrooms on your lawn now. It will keep using its scepter to turn Peasant Zombies, Conehead Peasants and Buckethead Peasants into Knight Zombies. It works fast, so make sure Magnet-shrooms will deal its ability.
    • Along with that, graves will spawn near your house. Immediately use Grave Busters and Cherry Bomb to destroy them or else you need a Tall-nut to block them.
  • More dangerous zombies will appear though, Cherry Bomb is needed to take out Wizard Zombies.
  • More Zombie Kings will come, so you need protect yourself by planting Magnet-shrooms and Tall-nuts.

Strategy 2

  • Suggested plants
    • Magnifying Grass (important)
    • Fume-shroom
    • Laser Bean
    • Grave Buster (very important)
    • Puff-shroom
    • Magnet-shroom (important)
    • Sun-shroom
  • Plant two columns of Sun-shrooms on the second and third row.
  • Leave the first row for a column of Magnifying Grasses.
  • Plant two columns of Fume-shrooms on the fifth and sixth row.
  • Plant a column of Laser Bean on the fourth row (not necessary, you can just put a column of Fume-shrooms but Laser Bean is better).
  • Now a column of Magnet-shroom on the seventh row.
  • If any Wizard Zombie appears, use Magnifying Grass on it.
  • Use Magnifying Grasses also to kill Zombie Kings.
  • If a zombie has almost reached your plants, also use Magnifying Grasses on it.
  • The column of Magnet-shrooms will take care of the Knight Zombies.

Trivia

  • This is the first time that Knight Zombies do not appear in the seed selection screen, but it appears during the battle. However, Knight Zombie appears in the seed selection screen after the 2.7 update.
