Dark Ages Gargantuars appear in this level, but they do not eat plants, instead they will destroy all hypnotized zombies in one hit, so try to save up costumed Hypno-shrooms to deal with them. In order to defeat the Dark Ages Gargantuars, feed a costumed and boosted Hypno-shroom to a zombie. The player may use two hypnotized Gargantuars to kill one of them.
If the last zombie is a Dark Ages Gargantuar, the player will lose because there are no lawn mowers and it does not eat plants. However, if this happens, the player can still use the Tactical Cuke to finish off the Dark Ages Gargantuar.
