Regifting Zombie is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Brainy IconBrainy class. He costs 2BrainPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives 2 cards to both the plant and zombie hero when he is played, unless they already have ten cards in their hand.

Regifting Zombie was introduced in the 2016 Feastivus event from December 14, 2016 to December 20, 2016 alongside Jolly Holly, and is available as the first event card to be obtained with tickets. As of February 7th, 2017, he was made craftable.


He is based on Swashbuckler Zombie's Feastivus costume from Plants vs. Zombies 2.

The term "Regifting" was popularized by an episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld ("The Label Maker"). The "social faux pas or recycling" part of his description may be a reference to the fact that the characters treat regifting as it were a bad thing.


  • Class: Brainy
  • Tribe: Party Zombie
  • Traits: None
  • Ability: When played: Each player draws two cards.
  • Set: Event

Regifting Zombie is a good option early on, as he only costs 2BrainPvZH and has 3StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH, which are respectable stats early on in the game. Compared to Cell Phone Zombie, who gives you 1 card at the same cost of 2BrainPvZH, Regifting Zombie gives 2 cards, but at the cost of your opponent also gaining 2 cards. In that case, be careful of playing him if your opponent has a low amount of cards. In addition, it may be wise to swap Regifting Zombie for Cell Phone Zombie if the risk is higher than the reward. Otherwise, the plant hero may obtain cards that can help stop your attack. However, in terms of fighting, he is essentially Fire Peashooter for zombies, except with no beneficial tribe.

As for its ability, it can also be used to draw Pot of Gold more easily should Leprechaun Imp be played. If the game goes extremely late, you can also try to use this to make your opponent run out of cards, since the player who runs out of cards first instantly loses regardless of health. However, this occurs rarely in general matches. You can also use it to activate your Dino-Roar abilities.

Be wary when there are Dino-Roar plants such as Bananasaurus Rex on the field, as it will get boosted when Regifting Zombie is played. Additionally, if Sow Magic Beans, Moonbean, or Lima-Pleurodon had shuffled some Magic Beanstalks, your opponent will have a chance of drawing them throughout the game.

As Super Brainz, you can use Firefighter or Mixed-Up Gravedigger to make him replay his ability. However, like said, be careful on when to do this, as you may supply the plant hero with cards in desperate needs, putting you in a bad spot. At the same time, however, this combo can be devastating if used in a mill deck with other cards such as Pogo Bouncer and Zombot Stomp, as the plant hero cannot play anything while Gravestone zombies are revealed.

You can use this with Quickdraw Con Man to do 2 unblockable damage to the opposing hero, although only Professor Brainstorm can pull this off normally.

Overall, Regifting Zombie is good at increasing the chances of you drawing good cards such as the mentioned Pot of Gold, Going Viral, or cards that create powerful synergy with one another in general. Just be wary that playing it while the plants are in a bad spot may allow them to get the cards they need to make a comeback.


Against Regifting Zombie, he can be a challenge early on in the game, due to his high stats for the point of the game in which he is usually played in. However, his gimmick, which makes each player draw two cards, can be both beneficial or a waste of space, as you could get good cards or ones that are less useful. But for most, you may obtain cards that could help you win the game if you are low on cards.

Regardless of the type of cards you get, if you have a plant with Dino-Roar on the field, it will get a boost when Regifting Zombie is played, as you get two cards for free.

However, if you manage to have a lot of cards in your hand, you do need to be careful is Regifting Zombie is played as it prevents you from getting a Super-Block if you are holding 8 to 10 cards.

If your opponent is using a mill deck, or you wish to not see this zombie being played, you can play cards that benefit from Regifting Zombie's ability like Clique Peas or Sow Magic Beans to make your opponent think twice before playing this zombie.
