Just a few days ago Imposter Zombie strolled into the Federal Reserve and walked out with over $500 million in silver. Nobody said a thing.

Imposter Zombie was a zombie in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. It was not actually one zombie; rather, two Imps hiding under a trench coat. When their trench coat was destroyed, a squeaky voice can be heard, and the Imps jumped out and started eating the plants on their own. While inside the trench coat, the 'zombie' dealt more damage per bite, due to both Imps biting the plant at the same time.

Strategies

Imposter Zombie can be quite difficult to kill when coming in larger numbers, as they have quite a bit of health that is comparable to the Football Zombie. It is best to have the Shamrocks attacking them and to freeze or slow them down from moving whenever possible, while using Wall-nuts to stop them from moving onwards. A Bamboo Shoot is good because it kills the Imps when the trench coat is knocked off.

In Brainball, Imposter Zombie trained waves itself is not that preferable, as Ice Block Zombie are more effective. Imposter Zombie waves come with Barrel Zombies and Rocket Zombies. Each of these are weak and one shot from a Flaming Pea will destroy a Barrel Zombie's barrel. When spawned in Mall Cop Zombie hordes, it is a good idea to let them take the hits instead of the Mall Cop Zombies. The Imps that fall out are deadly distractions, as every plant will shoot at one Imp then another, wasting a few extra seconds.

Trivia

  • Another reason why this zombie was called Imposter Zombie is because they were just a stack of two Imps, and there is the word "Imp" in the word "Imposter."
  • It was wearing a Groucho disguise, which is a reference to the famous comedian Groucho Marx.
  • When in the coat, the top Imp's arm fell off when it is damaged, but when the coat is knocked off, the top Imp's arm came back.
    • This could mean that the arm lost when the coat was on was a fake arm, or it could mean that the coat's sleeve ripped off due to sustaining enough damage.
  • It was similar to Barrel Roller Zombie's barrel, as they both split into two Imps once destroyed.
  • There was a glitch where if the trench coat was knocked off by a Flaming Pea, Bamboo Shoot, or Bamboom, a charred zombie body will appear, even though it was only the coat that was destroyed.
    • This is even more strange, considering that it was not a singular zombie, but rather two imps stacked on top of each other.
