He is based on the zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2 with a similar appearance.

Update history

Update 1.4.14

  • Brain cost change: 6BrainPvZH → 7BrainPvZH
  • Description change: Was originally KNIGHT of the Living Dead. Get it? Get it?



Knight of the Living Dead is one of the more unique high-cost cards in the game. Knight of the Living Dead's PvZH Armored IconArmored 2 trait provides near invulnerability against weaker attacks, allowing him to take no damage against plants with 2 strength or less such as Pair of Pears and Chomper (immune to both its attack and its ability), or take heavy hitting attacks such as 2 Cherry Bombs, a Sizzle, Precision Blast, or a Smashing Pumpkin. It is also unaffected by Sunburn, Power Pummel, and Mush-Boom.

However, his stats are rather low for his cost, and your opponent may have something to deal with him like a powered-up Super-Phat Beets. Nevertheless, he can pose a huge threat to your opponent if boosted.

Giving this Frenzy via Possessed or Maniacal Laugh will cause this zombie to power through almost any plant, so doing so is a good idea, but watch out for tricks such as Squash and Lawnmower.


While he is a bit weak for his cost, his PvZH Armored IconArmored 2 trait makes him very hard to destroy. However, since instant-kill tricks bypass the PvZH Armored IconArmored trait, playing Squash or Lawnmower can get rid of him and save you a lot of trouble. Or, as a temporary solution, you can Bounce him with Spring Bean or Jumping Bean as well as PvZH Frozen IconFreeze him with Iceberg Lettuce or Big Chill. Finally, a plant with 7 or more strength can destroy him in one hit, although the only way you can do it is to boost its strength. Examples of this are Magnifying Grass and Super-Phat Beets. One can also play plants such as Briar Rose and Winter Squash to get rid of him easily.




  • His description makes a pun on Knights of the Round Table, King Arthur's famed table in the Arthurian legend.
    • His old description makes fun about his name's pun.
  • He has the highest PvZH Armored IconArmored stat in the game, with PvZH Armored IconArmored 2.
  • He is the most expensive basic card in the game.
  • He is the only knight card in the game.
