He is based on Benjamin Franklin, a Founding Father of America, and his kite experiment.

If you decide to use this zombie early, try and protect him as long as possible. This is because his ability activates every time he does a damage to a plant or the plant hero. This means the player will not need to worry about draining cards during the late-game. In addition, without Grave Buster being used, having the plant hero block the attack, or having him in front of an PvZH Armored IconArmored plant, this will guarantee a card. Using this later has his benefits too for the same reason, when the player will most likely be short of cards.

Due to being a science zombie, he can work well with Gadget Scientist and Electrician, as they will let Kite Flyer do a bonus attack, allowing him to draw an extra card, or Zombot Drone Engineer, which can raise his strength, allowing him to do more damage while also drawing cards.

Note that for a 3-brain zombie, it is not that powerful. But as Rustbolt, you can play Landscaper or Shrink Ray to reduce the strength of threatening plants in his way. Because his main objective is to draw more cards, it is best to boost his health instead of strength so that it can slowly drain away 1 health at a time to draw more cards and last longer. Rustbolt can do this easily with Rock Wall or Camel Crossing. Medic can also heal a chunk or all of the damage that he takes, allowing for more durability.

Alternatively, Immorticia can use tricks like Vitamin Z on Kite Flyer to keep him alive, as well as protect him against tricks like Whack-a-Zombie. A better option is to use Maniacal Laugh on this, as if he is alive, he can potentially give two or even three cards from hitting the plants and the plant hero due to the PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy trait given.

As Super Brainz, you can make Kite Flyer a little tankier by boosting him with Headstone Carver, since he comes out of a gravestone. If you want him to do more damage, then Super Brainz can also play Smoke Bomb to move Kite Flyer to other lanes.


This zombie will allow the zombie hero to have more cards to use during the late-game, so taking this out is top priority as he will make it harder to defeat the zombie hero. This zombie only has 1 strength, so PvZH Armored IconArmored plants counter him very easily, unless his strength is boosted. Freezing him and doing bonus attacks are also good choices. Avoid bouncing this zombie, as the zombie hero can keep him and use him later when they need him. Berry Blast and Bonk Choy are pretty good choices too, because they can take him out in one hit with a low cost. If you are facing Rustbolt, use a plant with Team-Up so that in case the Landscaper shows up, he will only decrease one of your plant's strength by 2, allowing the other one to still attack.




  • The face on his kite is very similar to the one on Balloon Zombie's balloon.
  • His original description is a reference to the Dancing Zombie's almanac entry in the original Plants vs. Zombies.
  • In the tutorial, Super Brainz uses him to introduce the player to zombies with the Gravestone trait.
  • He is the only history zombie in the Brainy class.
  • His description mentions naysayers, which are people who express negative or pessimistic views.
