Knight of the Living Dead is one of the more unique high-cost cards in the game. Knight of the Living Dead's Armored 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 Armored 2 trait makes him very hard to destroy. However, since instant-kill tricks bypass the Armored 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 Freeze 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.
