Immorticia is a zombie hero in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. She relies heavily on tricks for her play style. She leads the Brainy and Beastly types. Her signature superpower trick is Witch's Familiar. It summons a card called Zom-Bats in the lane of her choice. When it hurts a plant, she draws a card.
Her design is based on a typical Halloween witch, although her hair resembles that of Frankenstein's bride. She also seems to have some inspiration from Dracula.
Immorticia's name is a portmanteau of "immortal", referring to the fact that this zombie cannot be destroyed but can be knocked out and "morticia", referring to the Addam's family character named Morticia Addams.

Yes, she's a Zombie AND a witch. She believes death is too short to limit oneself.
She has access to the typical pet and science zombies as well as powerful tricks such as Vitamin Z, Lurch for Lunch, Fun-Dead Raiser, and Hail-a-Copter. These tricks, combined with cards the grant extra Brains can make Paparazzi Zombie extremely powerful. Locust Swarm and Maniacal Laugh also have the potential to turn the tide of battle in the late game.
Immorticia has the potential to allow select zombies to last longer than normal on the battlefield, and consequently deal more damage to the enemy hero. A huge examples are the Paparazzi Zombie, which has the greatest synergy with Vitamin Z. Playing Vitamin Z on Paparazzi gives it a massive +4/+4 for 3 brains. Gentleman Zombie is also a teammate worth keeping alive for as long as possible. This will allow Immorticia to play more expensive cards earlier.
As stated by Crazy Dave, Immorticia's classes give her amazing Gargantuar synergy. Her Brainy class gives her access to Wizard Gargantuar, while her Beastly class allows her to use Nurse Gargantuar, Deep Sea Gargantuar, and Smashing Gargantuar. Wizard gives all Gargantuars Bullseye, while Smashing Gargantuar gives all Gargantuars Frenzy. These two make both Nurse Gargantuar and Deep Sea Gargantuar incredible threats. Deep Sea Gargantuar will attack from a mostly unprotected lane with Bullseye, while Nurse Gargantuar's bonus attacks will heal Immorticia for each plant or plant hero that is destroyed and/or hurt.
However, Immorticia's main drawback is her vast trick disposal. Having tons of tricks is great for a deck, but can also impact it a lot. Fewer zombies can be really bad for a hand, especially starting a match. Immorticia decks should not try and put every single trick in, as it will clog the deck and likely make a poor deck. However, Haunting Zombie can solve this a bit, as it is a good early game tool to have with decks with minimal zombies.
Immorticia must be dealt with as early as possible. Beastly heroes need a few turns to truly begin boosting. Her Brainy class helps her do this earlier than others, provided that her important brain-granting zombies survive.
One method is to adapt to her powerful bag of tricks. Distributing buffs evenly between a large number of plants on the board will minimize the value of Locust Swarm and Rocket Science. Putting too many boosts on a single plant makes it a target for the above mentioned tricks. Rushing Immorticia with cheap, high-attack plants such as mushrooms to deal heavy damage is an example of this method.
Another option is to duplicate her play style as closely as possible. Buffing or healing plants while preventing zombies from being buffed and removing heavily buffed zombies is effective, although the match may be in stalemate for a long time. Outsmarting her with your own tricks is also an option, although non-Smarty heroes may find this method problematic.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Immorticia.
- She and Neptuna are the only female zombie heroes.
- For some reason, the AI for Immorticia can use cards she cannot use, such as Undying Pharaoh, Monster Mash, Conga Zombie, Bungee Plumber and Imp-Throwing Gargantuar. They can be easily seen on the Haunting at Morbid Manor.
- Immorticia seems to actually care for her Zom-Bats, as seen in the second comic strip for "Menace on Molten Mountain!", where a dead Zom-Bat can be seen falling, and Immorticia is holding out her hands to catch it.
