Treasure Yeti is a bonus boss zombie in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Its appearance is similar to the Yeti Zombie. However, it wears a black eye-mask, a crown, large necklaces with a star and the word "BLING" on it, and carries a bag with coins and diamonds behind it. It does not try to attack the player; instead it flees when the player approaches. Treasure Yetis drop coins when attacked, and will provide a large amount of coins when vanquished. It will burrow away if it stays alive for a certain amount of time.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
Treasure Yeti was introduced in the Suburbination DLC, and appears in Garden Ops in the special objective "Vanquish the Treasure Yeti." If it appears, it will be the only zombie in the wave, however, as it runs, it can summon Yeti Imps, which can cause trouble. Though it doesn't attack directly, it can freeze the player with ice blast if the player gets too close. It drops coins when attacked, and stronger attacks yield more coins. The Player has 1 minute to find it, and 2 minutes to vanquish it. If not vanquished in time, it digs into the ground and escapes.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
Treasure Yeti once again appears in Garden Ops as a bonus boss and still possess its traits from the previous game. It can also appear in the Backyard Battleground with the same behavior, but do not summon any Imps there.

It is best to let two members of your team focus on the Yeti while you and the other member of your team defend the other zombies from the garden. If all of your teammates are chasing the Yeti, you should not get super greedy. Zombies will still attack the garden so you must go to the garden and try to defend it.

- It is also a robot, as he explodes after being vanquished and drops coins.
- If a Chomper uses Burrow and tries to eat him, he will give a lot of coins even though he does not deal any damage at all.
- If the player did not vanquish him in time, it will burrow underground and escape.

- Coincidentally, both of these achievements start with the word 'Treasure'.
