Imposter is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky class. He costs 1BrainPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability Conjures a random Imp card that costs 1BrainPvZH, including another Imposter, when he is destroyed, then places a mustache on that Imp when it is played. This mustache is purely cosmetic, and does not affect the game in any way.

He was introduced in update 1.14.13, along with Garlic, Health-Nut, High-Voltage Currant, Banana Split, Sun-Shroom, Secret Agent, Gargantuar-Throwing Imp, and Zombie High Diver.

He was made available in the Mustache Week event, which ran from May 23, 2017, to May 30, 2017.


He is based on the zombie from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures with a similar name and appearance.

Card description

It's IMPossible to tell who he really is.

Update history

Update 1.14.13

  • Added to the game.

Update 1.16.0

  • Became craftable.



Imposter can be a great addition for Imp decks, as he gives you more Imps when he is destroyed.

So far, Imposter can only give the player:

Getting an Imp is the worst case scenario, as it does almost nothing, though it can be used as a meat shield or as a glass cannon if paired with Toxic Waste Imp or as extra cards with Imp Commander. Mini-Ninja has the PvZH Anti-Hero IconAnti-Hero trait, meaning he can do some good damage early in the match. Impfinity Clone is fragile, but it can act as a Snorkel Zombie with the Imp tribe. Loose Cannons can deal damage to the plant hero additionally before attacking. Leprechaun Imp has decent stats and will shuffle 2 Pots of Gold into your deck, which is helpful if you are using an Imp deck.


Be careful if this stacks with Imp Commander or Toxic Waste Imp as it can ruin your defenses. In addition, be careful of destroying this as it can provide more Imps to the zombie hero's hand. The good news is is that you will only have to worry about Imps that cost 1 brain. Mini-Ninja can be dangerous if the zombie hero has Smoke Bomb, but virtually any attacking plant can be used to get rid of them.

Imposter in the crowd of zombies on the old Multiplayer screen

  • The word "IMPossible" in his description is a portmanteau of the words "impossible" and "Imp."
  • He is the first zombie from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures to return in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • This is the only card to cosmetically change other cards. In this case, it changes any Imp card the player receives from him to have a mustache.
    • However, this does not give said Imp the Mustache tribe, neither does it give that Imp another ability.
  • When an Imposter is Conjured by Imposter, it does not gain a mustache due to already having one.
  • When Plants vs. Zombies Heroes was first released, if the player carefully looked at the crowd of zombies in the Multiplayer, they could see Imposter, despite him being released many updates after the release of the game. Imposter's textures have also been in the game's softlaunch.
  • He was originally going to be a PvZH Beastly IconBeastly Galactic Gardens card that costed 3 brains, had 1StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. Its ability was, from quote of the game: "When this dies make a [3a]/[1h] Imp here", but it made a card called Other Imposter instead.
    • The "Other Imposter" was Beastly, costed 3 and had 3StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH.
      • Strangely enough, in that Imposter's ability description, "Other Imposter" is referred to as "Imp", which could suggest that Imp could've been a Beastly 3StrengthPvZH/1HeartPvZH zombie, but it is also very likely this a similar phenomenon to Zombie Yeti, where its ability says "Bounce this Yeti" than "Bounce this Zombie" or "Bounce Zombie Yeti", or maybe the Other Imposter was going to be called Imp.
