Weightlifter Zombie is a zombie in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. It is introduced in The Sever Glades Level 1. It has lost its right arm but has a very muscular left arm, and when it uses its barbell on a plant, the plant dies instantly. However, this does not apply to the Hard-nut, as they can survive one smash. The Weightlifter Zombie's weakness is the Magnet Plant, which takes the barbell and the arm holding it.

He lifts weights in order to make up for crippling anxiety over his merely average walking speed.


Weightlifter Zombie's barbell absorbs 40 normal damage shots or it is lost when he attacks a plant (at this point it loses its barbell) and is defeated at 44 normal damage shots.



Use a Shamrock, a Bamboo Shoot, or a Repeater to kill it, since the Shamrock shoots far, so it won't get killed fast. Bamboo Shoot's projectile is very strong, but try to use Plant Perk on it to expand its range and to prevent it from dying. The Repeater is a good defense too, as it deals very high damage.

For Brainball, a good strategy for when one of these is spawned is to let it stay in the back until you get near a Wall-nut. Speed it up near it and let it eat the Wall-nut. If there are no more Wall-nuts, its dumbbell makes a good defense.



  • Its handkerchief hat represents the American flag.
  • When it is in the Magnet Plant's range, Magnet Plant attracts both the barbell and its arm.
    • This is possibly meaning that the Weightlifter Zombie's arm is not real, or it may be due to its grip on the barbell.
    • Also, this means its arm could be made out of, or include a small amount of, metal.
  • When it loses its barbell, its speed remains the same, even though one would speed up after losing a heavy object.
  • It is the only zombie that can lose both of its arms.
  • Whenever it loses its barbell from damage, it plays the same animation of it eating a plant.
    • One can hear a crunching noise be made when it drops it.
  • There is a glitch that when it tries to eat a plant, it will drop the barbell, but when so many shots are hitting it, the animation will keep on looping, not defeating the plant.
  • It has a rip in one of its shoes, showing its toes.
  • Only a Hard-nut with enough health can survive a smash from it.
  • It is the only zombie that is missing one of their arms without getting hit by any plants.
