Make no mistake, Flag Zombie loves brains but somewhere down the line he also picked up a fascination with flags. Maybe it's because the flags always have brains on them. Hard to say.

Cave Flag Zombie has been in the flag-carrying business for a long time. It's been his life's work. He's good at it. But sometimes, just sometimes, he longs for a change. He wonders if he could be good at something else. He wonders if he could leave it all behind and start fresh. He's pretty sure he's having a mid-life crisis.

Flag Zombies and their world-themed variants in Plants vs. Zombies 2 are zombies that announce a huge wave of zombies. He is shown on the level progress bar as a red flag with a brain picture on it. He has the same health as a regular zombie, but moves slightly faster. They can appear on both land and water with a Ducky Tube. He is the second zombie the player encounters in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies 2 and is also the second zombie in the Suburban Almanac.

Overview

The Flag Zombie absorbs 9.5 normal damage shots, and his appearance changes upon an absorption of 4.75 normal damage shots before dying at 9.5 normal damage shots. He moves at a slightly faster speed than a normal zombie.

Strategies

General

Like regular zombies, a Flag Zombie can be easily killed by Peashooters and other offensive plants. They are only holding the flags, which has no effect on his health. Flag Zombies move slightly faster than ordinary zombies in the first game, so they may be able to get a slightly longer distance, so two or three Peashooters work better than one.

Versus Mode

In Versus Mode, Flag Zombies cost 300 brains, but when placed, the message "A Huge Wave of Zombies is Approaching!" will appear, meaning a huge wave will come out of the bushes. This can be very strategic at the beginning of a match by quickly collecting 300 brains and rushing him against your enemy; he could also help to support the player's forces with additional zombies if their rival already has strong defenses.

Trivia

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies

  • In the Game of the Year version, customized zombies can be made in-game, and will appear as Flag Zombies.
  • In Survival Mode (Hard), the player gets credit for completing a mid-level huge wave when the Flag Zombie dies.
  • If the player makes multiple Zombatars, the Flag Zombie will have random appearances.
  • A Zombatar Flag Zombie's jaw will not move.
  • When the player freezes or kills a Zombatar Flag Zombie, all the accessories on him will turn white and fall off him.
  • Flag Zombie, Backup Dancer, Zombie Yeti (except in Level 4-10 after the first time), and Zombie Bobsled Team (except in Bobsled Bonanza) are the only zombies that can appear in a level without being shown in the seed selection (not counting the zombies dropped by Dr. Zomboss's Zombot and the ones from Invisi-ghoul).
  • Flag Zombies can appear as Ducky Tube Zombies during the Pool and Fog levels.
  • They can also have the Zombatar effect.
  • Flag Zombie is one of the zombies that did not appear in Level 5-10. The others are the Balloon Zombie, Zombie Bobsled Team, Digger Zombie, Dancing Zombie, Backup Dancer, and the aquatic zombies.
  • Flag Zombie's clothes and skin color are not edited. They are just like the regular zombie except for a speed boost.
  • Flag Zombie is the most expensive zombie in Versus Mode, due to him representing a huge wave. When the Flag Zombie is planted, seven zombies will appear: four regular zombies, two Conehead Zombies, and one Buckethead Zombie, although in the DS version of Versus Mode, the zombies that appear are more random and may not contain Buckethead Zombies.
  • The Flag Zombie appears in every level (except in 1-1 the first time, 2-5, 3-5 (DS, DSiWare), 4-5, 5-10, Whack a Zombie, Dr. Zomboss's Revenge, ZomBotany, ZomBotany 2, Zombiquarium, Heat Wave, BOMB All Together!, Homerun Derby, Zombie Trap, Air Raid, Ice Level, and Squirrel).
  • After five normal damage shots, not only will his arm fall off, but its flag will also be damaged with several holes, and when the player kills him, his will drop the flag and fall like a normal zombie does.
  • If he has no arm and he is eating a plant, it will look like he is eating without using hands.
  • When this zombie dies, he will sometimes walk backwards and act like he is punching the air.
    • Normal zombie variants share this trait.

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies 2

  • According to the almanac, his name is Brian, as the almanac states he is "a spelling impaired zombie named Brian."
    • "Brian" is an anagram of "Brain."
  • Flag Zombie's flag is a lot bigger in this game.
    • He also moves at the same speed as a Basic Zombie.
  • The Flag Zombie is the only zombie with a human name, which is "Brian." and "Brain" is similar to "Brian".
  • Unlike the one-lane level of the original game (Level 1-1), a Flag Zombie will appear on the final wave of Player's House - Day 1.
  • The Halloween Flag Zombie resembles the Scarecrow from the movie "The Wizard of Oz", who, like the zombies, desired brains. Its flag also features Pumpkin instead of a brain.
  • Each time-themed Flag Zombie follows the same sentence for each of them, only with the change of the adjective of the word "wave".
  • Flag Mummy Zombie's Almanac entry says "Egyptian Flag Zombie" instead of "Flag Mummy Zombie".
  • The Flag Mummy Zombie says that he's living in "de-Nile". This is a pun of the Nile River, a river in Egypt, and the phrase "living in denial".
  • Sometimes when the Flag Pirate Zombie dies, he will stand up headless before he disappears.
  • The flag the Flag Cowboy Zombie has is the "Lone Star" flag of Texas, with the white star changed to a brain.
  • In the Cowboy Flag Zombie's Almanac entry it says "The Lone Brainer leads the way", which is a pun on The Lone Ranger.
  • Future Flag Zombie's flag is holographic and unlike the other flags, the holographic flag does not deteriorate. When the Future Flag Zombie dies, the flag simply disappears, leaving only the pole.
    • If the player looks closely, he or she can see through the holographic flag.
      • This effect also applies to the Infi-nut and the Dr. Zomboss hologram above in every Boss level.
    • Also the "brain" icon is blue, which is different than the other variants.
  • In the Almanac, Peasant Flag Zombie had a bone sticking out from its arm prior to the 2.5.1 update.
  • The Peasant Flag Zombie's flag is the only one to not be rectangular in shape.
  • Beach Flag Zombie is the first Flag Zombie to have a different look than that area's regular zombie.
  • Flag Mummy Zombie and Beach Flag Zombie have a different animation style than that area's regular zombie. Flag Mummy Zombie uses the animation style from the Cowboy Zombie, while Beach Flag Zombie uses the animation style from the Pirate Zombie.
    • Furthermore, the Pirate and Beach variants share the same speed.
  • The Cave Flag Zombie holds a banner instead of an actual flag.
  • There is a glitch where Neon Flag Zombie in its Almanac entry doesn't have its flag. Flag Pilot Zombie also contains this glitch. This has been fixed in the 4.0.1 update.
  • Similar to Jurassic Zombie and its Conehead variant, Jurassic Flag Zombie has the "Hungry" speed.
  • Jurassic Flag Zombie is the only flag variant to not use a stick or rod as a handle for the flag, it instead uses bones.
  • In Kung-Fu World, Flag Kung-Fu Zombies can appear anytime even if the huge wave has not yet arrived. This is because there might be a weapon stand that contains a flag that can transform a Kung-Fu Zombie into a Flag Kung-Fu Zombie. This can also happen to its Monk variant but the Monk variant can appear even if the wave has not been triggered.
  • Flag Pilot Zombie doesn't hold his flag due to his flamethrower, instead keeping it on his jetpack.

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies Online (China only)

  • The Sergeant variant is a zombie holding a token with a Chinese word written on it instead of a flag.

    • Well I don't remember, but I think this isn't the first time the Almanac has done a pun. Or am I missing something in this post?
    • No. It says "Flag Mummy Zombie" and "Egyptian Flag Zombie".
