Gunpowder Devil (火药魔头; pinyin: huǒyào mótóu) is a boss from Kongfu World in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Before the 1.8 update, it was fought in Day 16, but now can only be battled once per day in the Daily Challenge. It summons all Kongfu variant zombies with the exception of the Imp Monk and the Knife-Wielding Swordsman.

Almanac entry

火药魔头 (Gunpowder Devil)

SPEED: Hungry


他生前就喜欢乱扔垃圾, 这个坏习惯至今也没有改好。

    In English:

    Throws out all kinds of explosives and zombies.

    He likes littering, and he hasn't got rid of the bad habit till now.


Gunpowder Devil has four attacks:

  1. It can summon Kongfu World zombies on the player's lawn, many of them at once. At phase one, it summons Monk Zombies, Conehead Monks, Buckethead Monks, and Gong Zombies. At phase two, It summons Torch Kongfu Zombies, Blew Zombies, and Gong Zombies. Finally, at phase three it summons, Torch Kongfu Zombies, Blew Zombies, Qigong Zombies, and Drinking Zombies.
  2. It can throw bombs at the player's plants, killing any of them in a 3x3 area. In phase two, it will throw two bombs at a time. In phase three, it will throw three at a time. Shoveling the targeted plant(s) will foil this attack.
  3. It can throw Imp Pirate Zombies onto the player's lawn in bursts of 1-6 per attack.
  4. When in the second phase or third phase, it can summon Tiger Imps. The only ways to get them off their rockets is to swipe the rockets, similar to Power Toss. Alternatively, the player can use Blovers or Hurrikales.



  • Despite showing Imp Monks on its back, it throws Imp Pirate Zombies instead.
  • When it dies, it does not get beheaded like all other zombies. Instead, it drops all of its bombs and nervously flails its arms as the fuses tick. It is then blasted upward, raining pieces of its armor from the sky.
  • Its bomb attack has the same explosion as Potato Mine.
  • It, Knife-Wielding Swordsman, Zombot Aerostatic Gondola and Zombot Multi-stage Masher are the only bosses in the series that are not robots.
  • The bombs are comparable to those of Octo Zombie's octopuses, as they can only countered by digging up the plant, but have the properties of a Blew Zombie. They are also comparable to Gargantuar Prime's lasers in that they both destroy plants from the other side of the lawn.
