History repeats itself but it
always gets the details wrong.
The content and images in this article are not fake. They are either scrapped or just a concept.
For a similar page regarding Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Plants vs. Zombies 2/Concepts.

This page lists unused content and concept art for the game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. It should be noted that these descriptions are not fabricated but are primarily found in various versions of the game's code. Additonally, one should note that some of these "scrapped" features might be reintroduced to the game in the future.

Concept art

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes started development in 2014 and concept art exists from the game's earliest stages.

In addition to these images, a video exists on Vimeo showing the game's earliest animations. Some of the art style seems based of Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.


In a help page created by EA regarding crafting in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, among all known types of cards, "Event Reward Cards" are mentioned. This is a possible hint that limited-time events will be held in the future, similarly to how Plants vs. Zombies 2 has Piñata Party events.

Events are also shown in the flowchart seen before.

Game of Plants

The Game of Plants (based on Game of Thrones) is mentioned a few times in the code. It is possibly an event or a future mission. Some unused descriptions like "Winter is coming," "Summer is coming" and "Mekka Lekka Hi-Mekka Hiney BRAINS!" might be related to this. Additionally, two unknown heroes are mentioned—Crime Biter and Professor Von Bats (possibly Chompzilla and Professor Brainstorm).

Internal names

The game sometimes uses different names for the heroes in the code than in the actual game.

In-game name Code name
Captain Combustible scortchwood
Chompzilla chomper
Electric Boogaloo disco
Green Shadow penelopea
Immorticia witch
Rustbolt cyborg
The Smash gargantuar
Super Brainz cptbrainz

Additionally, the classes Crazy and Beastly are code-named madcap and hungry, respectively. The cards Muscle Sprout, Punish-Shroom and Backyard Bounce also have alternative names—Muscle Brussel, Spore Shooter and Trampoline Party.

Seasons in Ranked Mode

The game contains lines of code related to seasons in ranked mode, a feature which is present in many multiplayer games.

Build your Season 1 Rank as high as you can! Seasons run for several months. Follow your progress as you climb the Ranks in each new Season!
