This zombie is Lost City's ambush zombie, and will only appear on the lawn during the ambush "Parachute Rain!" It has a little bit more health than a Basic Zombie, but only by six normal damage shots. They are immune to Blover and Hurrikale's instant kill ability, despite appearing to be airborne (attempting to use one will simply cause the Lost Pilot Zombie to fall from his parachute instantly). They are annoying alone, but when they drop in large numbers, they can easily crowd your defenses, drawing fire away from more dangerous zombies. The best way to defeat them is to simply have a strong offense. Plants that can attack through multiple zombies, such as Bloomerang, Laser Bean, Fume-shroom, and A.K.E.E. are useful for quickly clearing the lawn of Lost Pilot Zombies, as well as defending against other Lost City zombies. This zombie can eat plants even when still in the air, so planting Wall-nuts or Endurians underneath them can stall them and give your other plants a chance to attack them. Don't continuously spam plants underneath it as they will get eaten, resulting in a waste of sun.

Lost City - Day 32/Modern Day - Day 34

Lost Pilot Zombies will always appear when Dr. Zomboss call a plane to attack. They appear between 3, 4 or 5 column and can be a problem if you do not have a well-prepared defense. Lost Pilot Zombies are the closest zombies to activate a Boulder Trap Tile (they even can get above the trap tile) and eliminate your defenses with ease. The number of Lost Pilot Zombies who can appear for the plane is varied and depends on the life of Zombot Aerostatic Gondola at that time.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 (Chinese version)

When level 1, do the same strategies as listed above. However, if this is leveled up, it can cause extreme dents in your defense. Because of this, using leveled up plants is the only option.



  • It has tree branches stuck in its clothes, suggesting that it crashed through trees on its way down.
  • Blover will drop it down instead of blowing it away. On the other hand, Hurrikale will also drop it down but immediately blow it back afterwards.
    • However, during its dying animation when it is in air, Blover and Hurrikale can still blow it away.
  • Pilots stuck hanging above the ground can eat any plants below them except for Hypno-shroom, Chili Bean, and low plants.
  • If it meets with a plant which is planted after Lost Pilot Zombie spawns, it will stay in the air longer, eating that plant.
  • It comes from above, resembling Bungee Zombie's attack.
  • In Lost City - Day 32, after it falls, a plane will appear flying above the lawn.
    • Since the 3.9.1 update, it falls after the plane flies above the lawn.
  • It, Basic Zombie, Dr. Zomboss, Shield Zombie, Knight Zombie, Wizard Zombie, Snorkel Zombie, Octo Zombie, Troglobite, Relic Hunter Zombie, Boombox Zombie, and Jurassic Zombie are the only zombies that have represented the game icon.
  • It uses Zombie's groan sound in Plants vs. Zombies.
