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 adds a random Imp card that costs 1BrainPvZH, which can be another Imposter, into the zombie hero's hand when he is destroyed, then places a mustache on that Imp when it is played.

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 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.



Imposter can be a great addition for Imp decks, as he gives you more Imps when he is destroyed. You can treat this as Haunting Zombie but with a slightly riskier ability, as he can give you either a powerful Imp, or a really weak one.

So far, Imposter can only give the player:

Getting an Imp or Swabbie is the worst case scenario, as they do almost nothing, though they 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 is seen as stronger than Swabbie and can act as Snorkel Zombie with the Imp tribe. Leprechaun Imp is possibly the best Imp to get, since he has decent stats and will shuffle 2 Pots of Gold your deck. Getting another Imposter also means you get to draw another Imp, making it good for synergy.


You can treat Imposter as a cheap Haunting Zombie, but that works with the Imp tribe. 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.
  • There is a chance for Imposter to keep giving you another Imposter again and again, forever, just like Seedling, but the chance of both of them repeating this infinite chain is extremely slim.
    • Also, when you draw an Imposter from Imposter, it doesn't gain a funny mustache.
  • 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. However, this is maybe due to that this game's textures were originally the ones in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
