Update 1.14.13

  • Set - Rarity change: Basic - Common → Premium - Rare



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. He is also unaffected by superpower tricks such as Sunburn, Power Pummel, and Mush-Boom, takes 1 damage from Berry Blast and Meteor Strike, 2 from Cherry Bomb, 3 from Precision Blast and Sizzle, and 4 from Hothead and Wall-Nut Bowling.

Giving this PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy via cards like 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 instant-kill tricks such as Squash and Lawnmower.

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.


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. Solar heroes can also use stat-reducing tricks such as Water Balloons and then destroy him with Whack-a-Zombie while bypassing his PvZH Armored IconArmored trait. 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. You 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 a pun on the word "knight" in his name.
  • He has the highest PvZH Armored IconArmored stat in the game, with PvZH Armored IconArmored 2.
    • He is also the only card in the game with Armored 2.
  • Prior to update 1.14.13, he was the most expensive basic card in the game.
  • He is currently the only knight card in the game.
  • He, Rodeo Gargantuar and Zombot Stomp are all tied for the most expensive premium - rare cards in the game.
