Zombie Yeti is a premium super-rare zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Beastly IconBeastly class. He costs 3BrainPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability adds a Yeti Lunchbox card into the zombie hero's hand when he is played, and gives him the Bounce effect at the end of the turn he is played.


While his namesake is from his original debut, his ability to add a Yeti Lunchbox into the zombie hero's hand is a reference of his Plants vs. Zombies 2 variant. His ability to Bounce back into the player's hand is a reference to how he would try to flee from the player in the main series games.

His description is a reference to Olaf from the movie Frozen, a snowman created by Queen Elsa who likes giving out warm hugs.


  • Class: Beastly
  • Tribes: Pet Monster Zombie
  • Traits: None

  • Set - Rarity: Premium - Super-Rare

Card description

Enjoys warm hugs.

Update history

Update 1.12.6

  • Tribe added: Monster



Since he automatically bounces himself when the turn ends, it is not recommended to boost this zombie unless it is enough to destroy a dangerous plant in his lane, or to contribute enough damage to finish the plant hero off. Otherwise, he can be continuously played to earn a cheap trick while boosting Cat Lady and Zookeeper, since he is part of the pet tribe.

Although he will Bounce himself, sometimes it is necessary to use the Yeti Lunchbox you gained on Zombie Yeti himself to have him survive the Fight! phase. Overall, he is almost a must-have for any Beastly hero, especially in pet decks, and as such should be played carefully.

Mixed-Up Gravedigger can be played after Zombie Yeti, and when he is revealed from a Gravestone, he will activate his ability again, ultimately giving you two Yeti Lunchboxes in one turn: one from when he is played and another from when he is revealed from his Gravestone. However, this combo can only be used by Brain Freeze.

Another thing to note is the Yeti Lunchboxes gained from Zombie Yeti's ability count as Conjured cards, so Brain Freeze can also make them free of cost if Dr. Spacetime is on the field when he plays Zombie Yeti.

Yeti Lunchbox has several possible applications, which is what makes this zombie so valuable. Besides Zombie Yeti's decent stats for his cost, he also gives a minor boost to any given zombie for 1BrainPvZH. Being a trick, it will trigger the abilities of Paparazzi Zombie, Trick-or-Treater, or Mad Chemist and decrease the cost of Trickster, although these combos are only accessible by Immorticia. If Yeti Lunchbox is used on Paparazzi Zombie, Paparazzi Zombie will actually gain +2StrengthPvZH/+2HeartPvZH for 1BrainPvZH, due to his ability.


Do not plant anything that does a total of less than 3 damage, since he will return to full health the next turn if you do not destroy him. Try using instant-kill cards like Whack-a-Zombie or Chomper to instantly destroy him. Berry Blast counters this zombie perfectly, as it can destroy this zombie for a positive sun trade. Try not to Bounce him unless he is preventing you from finishing off the zombie hero, since your opponent will gain yet another Yeti Lunchbox should they use Teleport (though only Immorticia can use this combo).

Be careful when you play a plant that has exactly 3 strength on its lane, since the zombie hero has Yeti Lunchboxes they can use to give Zombie Yeti 4 health, allowing it to survive while destroying your plant. Also, when you see this card being played, make sure to note that the zombie hero has Yeti Lunchboxes in their hand and can boost zombies up if they leave brains for tricks.




  • Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies 2, PvZH Frozen IconFreezing him will not prevent him from bouncing away.
  • When he is played, the player can see snowflakes come out of the ground.
  • He is one of the four zombies that give themselves the Bounce effect, the others being Kangaroo Rider, Cosmic Yeti and Hover-Goat 3000.
    • Coincidentally, all of them are from the Beastly class and are in the pet tribe.
