Trapper Zombie is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Sneaky class. He costs 4 to play, and has 3/3. He has the Gravestone trait, and his ability makes a Trapper Territory on a selected ground lane when he is revealed.
He is based on a trapper, a person who uses devices to remotely catch an animal.
His description references how real-life trappers trap fur-bearing animals so they can get their fur, usually for clothing. Since Trapper Zombie is a zombie, an enemy of the plants, he instead traps plants and uses parts of them (in this case, banana peels) to make clothing.

Trapper Zombie is used to destroy plants that have 1 in a lane. He acts similar to Fire Rooster, but creates an environment that does the same ability as Fire Rooster's ability. However, unlike Fire Rooster, the same ability is an environment and not part of a zombie, since it cannot be used on heights and only on the ground. But generally, it can be really useful for playing a 3/3 zombie, as well as removing plants with 1 or overriding a strong plant environment like The Red Plant-It or Venus Flytraplanet.
To benefit this zombie greatly, use this zombie along with Mixed-Up Gravedigger or In-Crypted to allow him to make another Trapper Territory on the field. This can be useful to fill all the ground lanes with Trapper Territories and not have to worry about bringing other environments.
Trapper Zombie can destroy your plants that have 1 like Shroom for Two, Magnifying Grass, or Sunflower. Since this zombie is in a gravestone, you can destroy him very easily with Grave Buster to prevent him from playing Trapper Territory. Trapper Territory's ability is generally like Fire Rooster's, but since environments cannot be played on heights, you can play glass cannons on heights to keep them safe. Be careful if Mixed-Up Gravedigger or In-Crypted is used on that zombie as he can create another Trapper Territory. When this occurs, avoid playing any of your environments as it will be useless.
If playing as a Guardian hero, you can turn your opponent's strategy against them by playing Hibernating Beary in Trapper Territories to give them massive amounts of quickly or by playing Prickly Pear to attack zombies in that lane for 4 damage each turn before combat. You can also play down a Pear Cub in that lane, so the zombie there will get attacked by 5 damage.
- He, Sap-Fling, and Fireweed are the only fighters that can make environments.
- He is the second event zombie with the Gravestone trait. The first is Zombie High Diver.
- Coincidentally, both of them are in the Sneaky class.
- They are also both in the mustache tribe.
- Oddly for a trapper, the raccoon on his hat is alive.
- When activating his ability, he takes out a bear trap and throws it. However, the bear trap seen in Trapper Territory is different.
