Trick or Treat? He is haunted by that question - and by an answer that continues to elude him.

Trick-or-Treater is an event zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Brainy IconBrainy class. He costs 3BrainPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability Conjures either a Sugary Treat or a Healthy Treat when the first zombie trick is played every turn, starting from the turn he is played.

Trick-or-Treater was introduced in the 2016 Halloween event alongside Jack O' Lantern. As of Feastivus 2016 (in update 1.10.14), both of them were also made craftable. He was available through tickets again from October 17th to October 24th.


He is based on the Basic Zombie's Lawn of Doom costume from Plants vs. Zombies 2. However, in this game, he holds a candy bucket.

His name and appearance are based on a trick-or-treater, a person who goes trick-or-treating from house to house on Halloween and asking for treats with the phrase "Trick or Treat?"

Update 1.18.13

Apply the same strategies as you would for Mad Chemist, as his ability and stats are similar to Mad Chemist. However, he does not have the Gravestone trait, so the plant hero can be ready to place a plant in front of him. But for the most part, he can be an alternative to Mad Chemist since he costs 1 brain less, but in exchange for possibly greater tricks Mad Chemist could reward.

Other than that, Trick-or-Treater can easily give you treats to boost other zombies' stats. It may be a good idea to use some treats on Trick-or-Treater himself so that he will survive longer. Additionally, you can save them for later use when a zombie is about to be destroyed or needs more strength. The treats can also be used as a cheaper, watered-down alternative to Vitamin Z. Some good zombies to pair up with this zombie are Paparazzi Zombie, who gets boosted immensely, and Trickster, who lowers his cost because the treats are tricks.

Speaking of the treats, both Super Brainz and Rustbolt can easily play them at a lower cost from either Dr. Spacetime (since Trick-or-Treater Conjures a treat into your hand) or Zombology Teacher, since the treats are tricks, meaning she can reduce their cost.


He can be a nuisance later in the game if not defeated quick enough. To deal with this zombie, do the same as you would with Mad Chemist. Bouncing this is a viable option, though it is better to destroy him with tricks such as Berry Blast. This zombie is only limited to giving you two types of cards, so you can take advantage of it. Still, it is best to get rid of any Dr. Spacetimes or Zombology Teachers on the field, otherwise, you would have to deal with the zombie hero easily spamming treats on their zombies.

Trick or Treater


  • He and Sweet Pea both shoot the same projectiles.
    • Coincidentally, they both shoot them from their mouths.
  • His face paint greatly resembles Bass Zombie's from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
  • He is one of two zombies in the game to have the word "Trick" in their name, the other being Trickster.
    • Coincidentally, both are in the same class and both their abilities are related to tricks.
  • His statistics and class are the same as Mad Chemist's.
    • They also have a similar ability. However, Trick-or-Treater gives the zombie hero a treat when a trick is played, while Mad Chemist gives the zombie hero a random trick.
  • There was a glitch where Trick-or-Treater can be made via Cornucopia, Petal-Morphosis, Seedling, or the special rule of mission 40's boss battle.
    • However, he switches to the zombie side when a zombie is played on that lane, resulting two zombies on one lane.
      • This glitch was fixed in a later update.
  • Trick-or-Treater is the only event card featured in the Early Access portion of the Daily Challenge in which an Early Access Pack was not available in the Store.
