Imp Monk (武僧小鬼僵尸; pinyin: Wǔ sēng xiǎoguǐ jiāngshī) is a zombie in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is first encountered in Kongfu World - Day 17. Its special ability is that it can float over obstacles which renders it invulnerable for a short time, then lands past through the player's defenses. It comes like a normal zombie and is not accompanied by Gargantuars.

武僧小鬼僵尸 (Imp Monk)

SPEED: Hungry



    In English:

    As light as a swallow, with great dodge skills.

    As light as a swallow, this is not exaggerated rhetoric.


Kongfu World: Days 17, 21, 26 and 30.


Use lobbed-shot plants or a Bamboo Shoot to damage the Imp. That way when it floats over, you will not have to bother any longer as the other plants could make short work for it. Beware though, you need to use Tall-nuts to stall them or it will cause serious damage to your backmost defenses. What's worse is Nunchaku Zombies can topple the Tall-nuts in three strikes, rendering you vulnerable to these Imps. Avoid using peashooting plants unless there are no Nunchaku Zombies or Weapon Stands blocking its way. Bonk Choy is somehow effective on the other hand. Other than that, the Monk Variant of Drinking Zombie can also be threatening as it can kill your plants with just two hits of its bottled drink so long as that and this Imp are present. Use an Iceberg Lettuce or Winter Melon to slow it down (Snow Pea if there are no Weapon Stands blocking the way). Since its ability is to become immune to damage while floating, a Heavenly Peach may also come in handy if and only if, you have no defensive plants at your disposal.

When it is airborne from floating over your plants, quickly use Hurrikale or Blover to blow away the Imp Monk to make it an easy defeat.
