Football Zombie wearing a football helmet

The football helmet is a headwear worn by Football Zombies and All-Star Zombies. It is the second strongest headwear and armor in Plants vs. Zombies, the strongest being the black football helmet worn by the Giga-Football Zombie. The football helmet can be taken away by Magnet-shroom or Magnet Plant.

The football helmet returns again in Plants vs. Zombies 2 as All-Star Zombie's headwear. However, it is no longer considered as a defensive armor as it is now just a part of the zombie's head. Because of this issue, it is unable to be attracted by Magnet-shroom.

The football helmet makes a comeback in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and its sequel as the All-Star's default headgear.


The football helmet absorbs 70 normal damage shots and its appearance changes upon absorbing 24 and 47 normal damage shots.


For more strategies, see Football Zombie.

The Suburban Almanac advises the use of a Magnet-shroom to steal the helmet and render the zombie's maximum absorption up to ten peas of damage, or the health of a zombie. The usage of heavy damage plants, such as Melon-pult, or movement restricting plants, such as Snow Pea, Kernel-pult, and Winter Melon are other options. In general, just pile tons of firepower onto it if those options are unavailable. Instant-kill plants such as Squash are also good, as you can end the Football Zombie quickly. Hypno-shrooms are also good against them in earlier levels if you have not obtain other instant kills. Planting Spikeweeds and Spikerocks in front of a Wall-nut can heavily damage the Football Zombie as it approaches your plants. However, Spikeweed or Spikerock will damage the helmet first before damaging the Football Zombie.
