Ingot Thief Zombie was a zombie in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He was featured in events that ran until February 15, 2016. He acts like Swashbuckler Zombie, but steals ingots if he is next to one.
His actions depend on how many ingots there are on the tile he is about to steal. If there are six ingots, the zombie will steal one and walk away. If there are five, he will take away all ingots at once, but will still walk away. If there are four or less ingots, he will take away all ingots, but will walk to the player's house instead. When killed or escaped, Ingot Thief Zombies sometimes drop a free plant for the player to use. While one is walking away, he does not eat plants but can still be attacked normally. If one is killed while walking back after stealing an ingot, the ingot(s) will not be returned.
Ingot Thief Zombie absorbs 9.25 normal damage shots. It loses its arm at 4.75 shots before dying at 9.25 shots.
