Garg prime

The Mech Gargantuar.

For the similar zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Gargantuar Prime.

Mech Gargantuar is a new boss zombie in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It is a robotic version of the Gargantuar, and has very similar characteristics to both it and the Giga Gargantuar. Piloted by an Imp, the Mech Gargantuar is heavily armored, and takes highly reduced damage from most attacks, making it harder to vanquish.

The Mech Gargantuar has similarities to both the Gargantuar and Giga-Gargantuar. Similar to the Gargantuar, he can quickly rush towards you and slam the ground, and like the Giga-Gargantuar, his ranged attacks and slam have electrical properties. Try to attack when the Mech is about to launch a bomb; Although it does more damage, it takes a long time to explode, and the Mech remains idle while doing this. Use similar tactics as you would the Gargantuar, however keep in mind that the Mech is completely armored, and takes very little damage when shot at. Always aim for the head: It's not only unarmored, attacks also do critical damage.



  • Its abilities and appearance are based on the Gargantuar Prime from Plants vs. Zombies 2.
    • However, unlike in Plants vs. Zombies 2, it does not shoot lasers from its eyes, nor can it be stunned by the EMPeach like in said game.
  • When the Mech Gargantuar takes damage, a voice can be heard from the Imp piloting it.
    • The sounds the playable Imp makes when hurt is audible alongside new audio cues
  • This is the third Zombie boss to not have a ragdoll mode when vanquished.
    • The others being the Yeti Zombie and the Treasure Yeti.
    • Coincidentally, all three of these bosses are actually robots (not including the Imp inside).
    • This is because all three of these bosses explode into robot parts when destroyed.
  • Sometimes, when he is vanquished, there will be not explosion, and no pieces of him will fly everywhere. This is a glitch that sometimes occurs with the Yeti Zombie boss as well.
  • The Imp inside of the Mech Gargantuar appears to be decently smaller than the Imp class, for unknown reasons.
    • It shares this trait with the Future Imp.
    • It also shares this trait with the regular Exploding Imp, as the Imp on top of the bomb is much smaller than the Imp class or the similar Exploding Imp Fan.
