Shell Zombie was proud of the seagull zombies flying in the air. In order to fulfill his dreams, he went to a shady shop and spent a huge sum of money on super glue to stick a shell onto his hands, but he still can't fly!

Shell Zombie (贝壳僵尸; pinyin: bèiké jiāngshī) is a zombie encountered in Big Wave Beach in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It has very high toughness and can absorb as much damage as Knight, Blockhead, and Fossilhead Zombies. Additionally, when plants are in front of it, the zombie snaps its clam shut to immediately kill them.


Shell Zombie has "Machined" toughness, therefore allowing it to absorb as much damage as Knight and Blockhead Zombies. It has an effective way of killing plants rapidly. It is also immune to freezing and damage-over-time effects.


Shell Zombie resides within a large purple clamshell, that encases its body down to its feet. The zombie wears a single blue flip flop on its right foot.

This is a very dangerous zombie, especially in groups. Like Mecha-Football Zombie, it has very high health and cannot eat plants. However, unlike Mecha-Football Zombie, this zombie can only eat plants when its clam is destroyed, but its clam will instantly destroy any plant it comes across. It is important to not have many on the rightmost columns as it will mow through them, so keep any important plants near your base. You should destroy its clam quickly, as it can crush an unlimited number of plants. This could result in your lawn defense being destroyed and result in you wasting countless coins and diamonds. If combined with Octo Zombies, Fisherman Zombies, Surfer Zombies, Deep Sea Gargantuars, and the Low Tide ambush, they can cause massive mayhem.

Immediately use Plant Food on your Lord Bamboos to deal splash damage to destroy its clamshell quickly. Banana Launchers and Guacodiles are a very good idea and this is an alternate way to destroy its clam. Combining this with Lightning Reeds and Homing Thistles is a good idea. Temporarily stall it with Iceberg Lettuce and Kernel-pult to prevent its massive damage. It is recommended you kill the zombie blocking the Shell Zombie's way and then plant the Tangle Kelp to deal damage. However, it is not recommended to use Winter Melon, Snow Pea, and Freeze Mushroom as it is immune to their chilling effect, causing it useless to slow down the Shell Zombie unless the Shell Zombie's shell is missing.

Acid Lemon can also be of use here, since it deals extra damage against armor. If you use multiple Level 3 Acid Lemons against a single Shell Zombie, the shell will quickly be corroded. Plant Food on the Acid Lemon will deal large amounts of damage to all zombies as a secondary option.

On land, it is able to kill Spikerocks in one hit, so don't use them when it appears.



  • Shell Zombie is the only China-exclusive zombie in Big Wave Beach.
  • Shell Zombie zombie is similar to the Surfer Zombie and Excavator Zombie, as they have weapons that also act as shields they carry.
  • It has its clamshell closed on land.
  • It might have a chance to survive Citron Plant Food's attack, but it will get slanted.
