Pirate Captain Zombie isn't actually a captain. His dry cleaning got mixed with someone else's, but he thought he looked cool with an eyepatch. Plus, the parrot already knew his name, so he just went with it.

Pirate Captain Zombie is the ninth zombie found in the Pirate Seas of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is slightly weaker than a Conehead Pirate, and also has his pet Zombie Parrot, which he releases after 2.5 seconds to steal one of the player's plants at random. If either the Pirate Captain Zombie or his bird is not killed fast enough, the parrot will come back and steal another plant.

Description

The Pirate Captain Zombie dons a black pirate hat with the middle part torn up, and is the sitting place of his Zombie Parrot. Also, beside the Zombie Parrot is a darkened portion of the pirate hat the Pirate Captain Zombie wears. The hat has an orange lining. Also, on his left is a tattered green feather. He wears a red bandana with white linings as his design, a gold earring for his right, and a black colored eyepatch with a "x" mark to his left for headwear. The Pirate Captain Zombie has also a silver full beard, two golden teeth, and three regular teeth with one on his upper right slightly unseen. He dons a blue collared shirt with white linings on it. On his left shoulder is a red squared design. Also, his left arm is bent, exposing the bone of his wrist as well. At his wrist is an orange colored lining with an inverted "v" shape and a golden ring placed on his left ring finger while his right hand is a hook. He wears a belt with an orange colored buckle on. The Pirate Captain Zombie wears red pants with pink linings on it, and finally on his shoes there are orange linings on above the shoes themselves.

Strategies

Treat this zombie as you would a Conehead Pirate but with the ability to instantly kill your plants. This zombie also walks slower, and is more likely to hide in crowds of zombies. The parrot has nearly the same health as the zombie himself, so it is better to just kill the zombie quickly, as it will kill the parrot too, provided the parrot is still sitting on him. Use Kernel-pults or Shrinking Violet to instantly kill the parrot or a Blover or Hurrikale to blow it away. Then, go for the zombie, as without his parrot, he is basically the same as a Conehead Pirate without armor. Most defenses can repel these zombies, but always beware of his parrot's stealing abilities. It is also worth noting that, no matter how many plants the parrot has already stolen, it can always steal more. This makes it similar to Wizard Zombies and Octo Zombies, as it can instantly kill all of your plants from a safe distance.

Pirate Captain Zombie is at his deadliest level when in Save Our Seeds levels. Unlike Wizard or Octo Zombie's instant disabling abilities, his parrot stealing the plant does count as losing it. If his parrot steals the endangered plant (and it usually does, since the endangered plants tend to be placed close to the front of the lawn), it will instantly end your game. To prevent this, bring Blover, boosted Kernel-pult, or boosted Shrinking Violet to instantly kill Zombie Parrots attempting to abduct endangered plants.

A cheap and fast way to stop the Pirate Captain Zombie is to use the Iceberg Lettuce to freeze the captain. This prevents the parrot from being released to abduct a plant. The player can also use Spring Bean to instantly defeat him in Pirate Seas.

Beware that this zombie, unlike Wizard Zombie or Octo Zombie, can use his parrot, even when off-screen. Also note that if the parrot is already in the air, killing the captain will not stop the parrot from stealing a plant.
