Kongfu World (功夫世界; pinyin: gōngfu shìjiè) is the fourth world in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. The world is based on China, a country that establishes the martial arts known as "Kung-Fu." It is home to Chinese zombies who have acquired skills in martial arts. The stage elements of this world are Power Tiles and Weapon Stands and the Power Tiles here are different from the ones in Far Future; they give additional Plant Food when planted on. There are four new plants that will be added to the player's arsenal and twenty-five new zombies to fight.
Kongfu World takes place in 1673, six years before the events in Pirate Seas which take place in the year 1679. The timeline of this world takes place during the reign of the last imperial dynasty of China, the Empire of the Great Qing, or Manchu Dynasty, that was preceded by the Empire of the Great Ming and succeeded by the Republic of China after the Qing (Ching) Dynasty's almost 300 year ruling.
This is the year 1673, a Shaolin Kongfu world. Kongfu plants versus Kongfu zombies, are you ready?
The boss debuts! The blustering Knife Wielding Swordsman and Gunpowder Devil are here, can you beat them and finally save Kongfu World?
This is a medium world. It presents a difficulty spike for new players due to the Last Stand levels' unique wave of zombies and black hole gimmick. Other levels aren't so bad, the zombies are of moderate threat and Level 2 Common and Uncommon plants will suffice. The boss level however is extremely difficult compared to the rest of the world due to its powerful attacks. Overall Kungfu World is slightly harder than Wild West and Far Future

In the current version, the Brain Busters are on the main levels just like in other worlds. Previously, some Brain Busters are on the main levels while some are separated in their own branches on the map.
- Main article: Powder Keg
Powder Keg is Kongfu World's Brain Buster. The main objective is to prevent the fuses from being lit by the Torch Zombies through the use of ice-related plants. The game ends when the player successfully stopped a zombie horde or when all the powder kegs blow up.
Save Our Seeds
- Main article: Save Our Seeds
In this Brain Buster, the player is forced to survive the wave of zombies and protect the endangered Sunflowers. Otherwise, he or she will fail the level. In the previous updates of this Brain Buster, the player can dig the endangered plant but now in the latest updates, digging is omitted in order to prevent immediate defeat.
- Main article: Last Stand (PvZ2)
Last Stand makes a return in this game. The player is given high amounts of sun and time to plan their defenses. As always, the player can either trigger the onslaught immediately or when he or she is ready. There are eight levels all in all in this World. Four are during the gameplay and three are optional Brain Busters. One level consists of a combination of this and Locked and Loaded. The boss battles of this world are Last Stand levels with the exception of having sun-producing plants at player's disposal rather than being in a form of conveyor-belt level, which is traditional. On some levels, black holes will appear after a set of waves to remove the plants from the lawn.
- Main article: Bronze Matrix
Bronze Matrix is the second exclusive Brain Buster in this world. The objective here is to defeat all the zombies, including the Gargantuar Bronzes, which are formerly bronze statues. A time limit will be given to the player and if the time runs out, Gargantuar Bronzes will suddenly break free from petrification. Also, the level is challenging enough because there is the absence of all the lawn mowers for Last Resort purposes, making player be more dependent on the plants provided to him or her via conveyor-belt.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Kongfu World.
- This world introduces the least number of plants, as only four are introduced.
- Only two of them can be unlocked by beating a level.
- This is the only world to have no new plants after Part 2 was released.
- It is the first world to have no returning plants from the original Plants vs. Zombies, The second being Frostbite Caves, the third being Lost City, the fourth being Sky City, the fifth being Jurassic Marsh, and the sixth being Modern Day.
- The words above the gate of the player's house mean "The Best of The Whole World."
- The black holes of this world can't absorb zombies.
- This world and Dark Ages have the second most amount of Imp variants, with having two. The first is the Chinese version of Jurassic Marsh, with having four variants of Imps.
- The notice set beside the bridge before part 2 was released said that Dr. Zomboss was coming. A machine (probably a Zombot) also appeared in the 3D trailer of the world and stole Kongfu Zombie's head. However, this is the only world without Dr. Zomboss and his Zombot as the boss.
- The machine that appeared in the 3D trailer might be showing Far Future is the next world.
- Any Kongfu Zombie or Monk Zombie who gets close to a Weapon Stand will transform into another zombie and recover to full health. (For example, a zombie that manages to take the bomb on the weapon stand will transform into a Suicide Bomber Zombie).
- If a zombie that was carrying Plant Food reaches a Weapon Stand and transforms, the Plant Food will be dropped as if the zombie was killed. However, the zombie that transformed will still be carrying Plant Food. This is the only case where a single zombie can give out two Plant Food, but it is possibly a glitch or an oversight.
- This has been fixed in an unknown update.
- This world has the most number of Imps and Gargantuars. Dark Ages is the runner up, as it has two Imps.
- This world has the largest number of zombies to fight - 25 to be exact .
- Only this, Dark Ages, Lost City and Chinese version of Jurassic Marsh have more than one Imp variant.
- When the player picks up the bag of coins, the music playing is the Player's House and Ancient Egypt victories although when finishing the Ancient Egypt (and any other world besides Kongfu World) levels, the song played is the Player's House victory theme.
- The mix-up music only happens in the Android version, while the iOS version has the correct victory themes, but the Kongfu World's victory theme stays.
- So far this is the only world to have more than one Gargantuar variant.
- The music that is played in this world is a remix of the "Choose Your Seeds" theme for the original Plants vs. Zombies.
- This world has the most number of stage elements. A Power Tile, a Weapon Stand, a Mine Cart, and a Wormhole.
- The minecarts in this world are different from those of Wild West as the whole carts in a row will move with one swipe of a finger.
- In version 1.8.0 onwards, the unused boss appears in the overview screen.
- This has been removed as of an unknown update.
- It was the fourth largest world to date, with 77 stars. Far Future and Dark Ages both had 79 stars and Big Wave Beach had 87 stars.

- It is also the longest gap between parts of a world, being roughly 6 months.
- Previously, the two parts of the world has a bridge between them. The players need to collect all the stars or use diamonds to fix the bridge so that they can play Part 2.

- Each slot took ten minutes to recharge with five slots being the maximum. However, additional slots could be purchased by using diamonds.
- Coincidentally, the Leaf Slot icon resembled the Plant Food icon from the International version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
