Zen sensei

Zen Sensei is a boss zombie in Garden Ops in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He is small, quick and is able to make three clones of himself, making him a bigger problem. At long range, he can charge up for a powerful yellow ball to attack.


  • Dash Punch: Runs quickly towards the player and does a big uppercut that does about 20 damage. Similar to the the Gargantuar's charge slam.
  • Energy Ball: Charges up a ball of energy, and shoots it. It does big damage. Similar to the Super Ultra Ball.
  • Clone Split: The Sensei will perform a pose, then summons 4 copies. They all have the same strength and attacks, but have a small amount of health.

Super Karate Wave

When the boss slots land on three Zen Sensei icons, a Super Karate Wave will occur. During the wave, Karate Zombies replace all regular zombies.


The Zen Sensei is one of the easier bosses to fight, provided you keep your distance from him. His only ranged attack is one that takes a while to charge, so you have time to avoid it. Try not to use any rooted abilities at close range, because his Dash Punch can knock you out of them. When he creates clones, it's advised to take out the clones, since they have little health, and will cause a lot of trouble for you if you don't.



  • He is called Sensei Explody-Boom in the starting dialogue for the Plant mission "Fireworks of the Ancients."
  • He is referred to as "Zen Master" in the Zombie quest "Ancient Knowledge."
    • Before the said quest ends, Zen Master makes various references to the Star Wars franchise.
    • The phrase "May Brains be with you" is a reference to the well-known line "May the Force be with you."
  • According to the Zombie quest from the Quest Board named "Vanquisher of Roses," the Zen Sensei does not have a good sense of smell.
  • He might be reference to Pat Morita's character Kesuke Miyagi in the 1984 film The Karate Kid.
  • He and Baron Von Bats are the only bosses that do not appear in the Backyard, unless the Flag of Power is active.
