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. Additionally, one should note that some of these "scrapped" features might be reintroduced to the game in the future.
Plants vs. Zombies Heroes started development in 2014 and concept art exists from the game's earliest stages.
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).
Sometimes during the loading screen for a multiplayer game, the game uses different names for the heroes in the code than in the actual game. These names are sometimes used for multiplayer names for users under the age of 13 or if the internet is too slow to load the username.
Additionally, the classes Crazy and Beastly are code-named madcap and hungry, respectively. The cards Muscle Sprout, Punish-Shroom and Zombot Stomp also have alternative names—Muscle Brussel, Spore Shooter, and Trampoline Party.
Beta-Carrotina (previously known as BetaCarrot) was going to be the first three-classed hero, and have the Solar, Mega-Grow, and Guardian classes. Its signature power was to revive a plant (Similar to Intensive Carrot) and it would gain +1/+1. It was later changed to be a Galactic Gardens hero with the same classes as Citron and different superpowers.
- The Shamrocket was redesigned before it was released. In particular, it was going to look a lot more mechanical and less like a pinecone.
