Swordsman Zombie (大刀武僧僵尸; pinyin: dàdāo wǔsēng jiāngshī) is a zombie in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is first encountered in Kongfu World - Day 15. It can cut plants with the sword it wields, killing it instantly. It can be considered to be a weaker version of Gargantuar, as it can cut through the player's defenses if not killed quickly.

Almanac entry

大刀武僧僵尸 (Swordsman Zombie)

TOUGHNESS: Protected
SPEED: Basic



    In English:

    A Monk Zombie with powerful attack.

    His Tang poetry knife skills made him famous in his lifetime, now his lying dead knife skills make him famous.


It is important to rid of it as soon as possible. Laying down a few Spikeweeds or Spikerocks can deal with Swordsman Zombies in groups, especially considering that they cannot damage grounded plants. For even better results, stalling plants such as Stunion are an effective choice.



  • The Chinese words for "Tang poetry" and "lying dead" in the Almanac sound very similar.
  • Despite being named "Swordsman Zombie", the Almanac refers to the sword as a knife.
