Screen Door Zombie is a galactic uncommon zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Hearty class. He costs 5 to play, and has 4/4. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability shields him for the turn he is revealed.
His description is probably referencing to sunscreen, or sun block, a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun's ultraviolet radiation and thus helps protect against sunburn.
- Class: Hearty
- Tribe: Professional Zombie
- Trait: Gravestone
- Ability: When revealed: This can't be hurt this turn.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Uncommon
Little known fact: He carries a door to protect himself from solar radiation.
- Added to the game.
Despite being a more expensive version of Trash Can Zombie, this zombie is able to destroy a tough plant with 4 health or less, and will live for the turn he is played, then acting like Drum Major on the next turn but with the professional tribe.
You can also use this zombie to destroy a plant with 8 health or less, or to stall out Soul Patch as he does 4 damage on the turn when he is shielded, then 4 more damage the next turn.
Because of his professional tribe, he can synergize with Zombie Middle Manager, but it isn't a good synergy because by the time Screen Door Zombie becomes playable, Zombie Middle Manager will be too weak of a fighter, even after he is boosted. And besides, Zombie Middle Manager will not be able to activate his ability on the turn Screen Door Zombie is played.
Since he also has the Gravestone trait, Neptuna can use this zombie by pairing up with Headstone Carver as he can boost Screen Door Zombie's stats, but she needs to keep Headstone Carver alive until the Zombie Tricks phase of turn 5. She can also use either Mixed-Up Gravedigger or In-Crypted to reactivate Screen Door Zombie's ability again.
If you see a Hearty hero that plays a gravestone and nothing else when they have 5 brains, chances are that it may be Screen Door Zombie. If you think you can predict him, try to play a plant with 5 or more so it is able to survive the turn Screen Door Zombie is played. However, most plants cannot take two attacks from him, so be prepared to lose that plant.
- He and Newspaper Zombie are the only zombies in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes to permanently change appearance when they are damaged.
- Coincidentally, both appeared in the original Plants vs. Zombies.
- He can be considered as a stronger Trash Can Zombie, as he has the same trait and ability as Trash Can Zombie, but has more strength and health, at the cost of more brains.
- During development, he cost 2 brains, and had 2/3 and the Armored 1 trait instead.
