Kitchen Sink Zombie is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. He costs 6 to play, and has 3/6. He has the Bullseye, Frenzy, Armored 1, Overshoot 2, and Anti-Hero 3 traits, and does not have any abilities.
His name is a combination of "kitchen sink," the real-life object he is holding, and "zombie," referring to what he is. The fact that he appears to be a Plumber references the fact that plumbers fix pipes and therefore are often used to fix sinks.
His description references the idiom "everything but the kitchen sink," meaning everything imaginable, due to his numerous traits. However, since he holds a kitchen sink, the description references the fact he has a kitchen sink too.

He's got everything but the - no wait, he's got that too.
While this card seems to have many traits at random, this zombie is made to do huge damage to the plant hero while surviving longer with Armored 1. His Frenzy, Anti-Hero 3, and Bullseye traits make a perfect combo to destroy 3 plants and dealing 6 unblockable damage to the plant hero. And lastly, his Overshoot 2 trait ensures that you are guaranteed 2 unblockable damage to the plant hero every turn of combat. However, keep in mind that his Overshoot 2 trait does not team-up with Anti-Hero 3. Being in the Brainy class, all Brainy heroes can use either Teleport or Teleportation Zombie to play him on an empty lane without being countered and to do an insane amount of damage, or use Cryo-Brain to play him faster.
Each Brainy hero also has their own way of using this zombie well:
- Super Brainz and Huge-Gigantacus can use Smoke Bomb or Carried Away to move him to an empty lane. They can also play him in Graveyard to surprise their opponent, but keep in mind that it also gives a hint to them as well. You can play him in Laser Base Alpha or Ice Moon to give him Strikethrough (and Deadly as well in case of Laser Base Alpha), basically all traits except for Amphibious, Hunt, and Gravestone. Keep in mind that if a Frenzy zombie such as this destroys two plants at once due to its Strikethrough trait, it will do two bonus attacks.
- Immorticia can boost his stats to make him an even bigger threat, or destroy plants that block his way. He can also be used in an Ancient Vimpire deck.
- Professor Brainstorm can use him with Binary Stars to defeat his opponent more quickly. He can also play damaging tricks to destroy or weaken plants in front of Kitchen Sink Zombie, allowing most of his traits to not go to waste.
- Rustbolt can use cards to move plants blocking Kitchen Sink Zombie's lane such as Terrify and Rodeo Gargantuar to allow more damage on the plant hero, or use health-boosting cards such as Camel Crossing and Rock Wall to allow him to last longer. He can also play Flag Zombie to play Kitchen Sink Zombie earlier, making him a bigger threat.
Kitchen Sink Zombie is a threat due to his many traits that synergize well with each other. If you leave him alone, he will do a lot of damage to you with his Overshoot 2, Bullseye, and Anti-Hero 3 traits. If you try to block his attacks with weak plants, he'll just plow through them with his Frenzy trait. He also has the Armored 1 trait, which allows him to resist most attacks.
However, keep in mind that you can destroy him with instant-kill cards such as Squash or Whack-a-Zombie. Tactical Cuke also works if Kitchen Sink Zombie is on the ground, but remember that it will wipe out your plants on ground lanes too. If Kitchen Sink Zombie gets the Untrickable trait, use plants with instant-kill abilities like Chomper, Eyespore, or Briar Rose.
If you cannot play instant-kills, try to play high-health plants to stall him, or boost a plant's strength so it can destroy this zombie in one attack, but you will have to take some Overshoot damage. Same goes for Freezing, but it is a more reliable option and can activate Winter Squash's ability. You can also Bounce him, since he is quite expensive to play.
