Lion Dancer Zombie was a limited-edition zombie in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He could only have been found in exclusive events that ran until March 31, 2015, along with God of Wealth, where he appeared in all waves. His special ability was to breathe fire on plants that were in front of him. When killed, he gave the player either a money bag, or a costume Puzzle Piece of a plant that they picked at the beginning of each event.
- He was based on the lion puppet used in the Chinese Lion dance.
- He was also based on the Qilin, which is known as one of the Four Holy Beasts (the Dragon, the Qilin, the Turtle, and the Phoenix) in the Chinese mythology.
- He took up two adjacent tiles.
- He was the fourth zombie to have its own event in the Chinese version. The others are Treasure Yeti, Dr. Zomboss, and God of Wealth.
- If Lion Dancer Zombie is chilled, he does not get rid of his fire breath.
- This misconception also occurs with Super-Fan Imp.
