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.
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!
It is unknown whether these are plant or zombie cards. Some may also be the removed "no class" cards.
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 Set 2 hero with the same classes as Citron and a different superpower.
- The Shamrocket was redesigned before it was released. In particular, it was going to look a lot more mechanical and less like a pinecone.
