Update 1.12.6

  • Card design change.
  • Became craftable.



Energy Drink Zombie is best played in the early game. He is similar to Zombie Chicken, but he moves to a random lane after the plant hero ends their turn. If you manage to keep him alive, he can get +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH every time the round enters the Zombie Tricks phase, which makes him powerful enough to destroy most plants and do heavy damage to your opponent, thanks to PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy. To make Energy Drink Zombie last longer, try to bring Vitamin Z or other boosting cards to assure that he destroys something on the lane he moves to.

Take note that he is also a sports zombie, so if you play as The Smash, playing zombies like Team Mascot and Zombie Coach can help boost him even further or protect him. In addition, when playing as The Smash, unless you need to protect this, avoid using Possessed on him, as he already has the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait, and there are other health-boosting tricks like Camel Crossing that are more efficient.


This zombie is easier to deal with in the early game before he gets boosted too much for the player to handle. You should always have instant-kill cards at disposal, such as Whack-a-Zombie, which can destroy him during turn 3 when he is not very dangerous. The best choice for decks, however, is to have as many low-cost high-damage plants, such as Wild Berry, that can destroy him during turn 2, but the player should not forget the randomness of both this zombie and Wild Berry. Having many Wall-Nuts can be a good idea to stall him until the player gets tricks to destroy him. You can also use stat-reducing cards like Weed Whack, which can also destroy him if used right after he is played. If this zombie gets out of hand, resort to Bouncing, destroying him with something like Squash or Shamrocket, or transforming it with Goatify, Transmogrify, or The Great Zucchini.

  • He shares animations with Coffee Zombie.
    • Coincidentally, both are gourmet cards, both have the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait and gain +1StrengthPvZH/+1HeartPvZH at some point when they are on the field.
    • Ironically, his description is actually the exact opposite of Coffee Zombie's, with Coffee Zombie's being "He's been trying to cut back," while Energy Drink Zombie's says that he can quit anytime he wants.
  • He is the cheapest PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy zombie in the game, costing 2 brains.
    • He is also the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy zombie with the lowest stats in the game, starting with only 1StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH.
  • Prior to update 1.18.13, if the player paid close attention, they could see that this zombie's arm clipped through the dirt surrounding him.
  • There is an odd bug that occurs when there is more than 1 Energy Drink Zombie on the field at a time. Only one moves during the Zombie Tricks phase, while the others stay stationary. It is unknown what causes it.
  • If the player looks closely, the skiing goggles of this zombie has a huge crack to its left.
