The first 999 Zombots are now considered classics.
Being one of the strongest and most costly zombies, this one is a huge carry, only if it is played correctly.
With the outstanding 9/9, this zombie is really strong, as it has the ability to destroy all plants on the field. By itself, it can destroy most non-boosted plants (from tricks or the plant itself) in one hit except Soul Patch. Generally, this should be used if there are too many plants on the field. Combining this with Anti-Hero zombies, such as Mini-Ninja or Walrus Rider will be a great benefit to them since there will be no plants in their way, allowing them to do their bonus damage. Unfortunately, zombies play first so the opposing plant hero can replace those destroyed plants or destroy Zombot 1000 if they have plenty of cards. In that case, be careful of using it if you notice the plant hero is holding more cards.
If used when the plant hero has just tricks, and none of them are instant kills, such as Cherry Bomb or plant fighters, it can be an immediate victory for you.
If you are playing as Immorticia (or happen to get this through Eureka with Professor Brainstorm or via Portal Technician then bouncing it with Firefighter with Super Brainz), you can use this with Teleport to prevent the opponent from using an instant-kill on the Zombot 1000. This way, you can also destroy newly placed plants, thus making you get an easy win. This is especially useful against Cornucopia as this method destroys the plant hero's strategy and win.
Use it to punish your opponent if they end up using all of their cards, have very little cards in their hand, or if they use powerful plants like The Great Zucchini. Zombies will always play first, and you can use this zombie to clear out all the plants on the field, leaving nothing for the opposition to defend themselves with.
If Impfinity gets this from Gargantuars' Feast, he can use In-Crypted or play Mixed-Up Gravedigger, as when it is revealed from the Gravestone, it will replay its effect when it destroys all plants. However, be wary of using this against a Guardian hero, as they can use Grave Buster to destroy it.
Due to being a Gargantuar zombie, you can also boost it more with Smashing Gargantuar or Wizard Gargantuar for more devastating results that can turn it to an unstoppable zombie that can obliterate tons of health and strength as this amount can easily survive very long and do almost half of the plant hero strength. The Smash can also combine this with Gargologist to play it earlier.
Due to its capability to destroy every single plant when deployed, it can easily punish the player for deploying too many fighters, turning them all into a waste of sun. Make sure you have a card that can either instantly kill it or a card to stop its attack, such as Iceberg Lettuce, or a use of the Lawnmower if it is on the ground.
Rose's Goatify is the most effective counter to this card due to the fact it can turn the Zombot 1000 into a Goat, rendering it useless. However, keep in mind that it may transform another zombie if another fighter is stronger. The Great Zucchini or Transmogrify can also be used if you do not have Rose. In addition, since this is in the Beastly class, the deck may have Pet zombies, which can cause zombies like Cat Lady to benefit, so be careful when using Goatify.
Unless victory or stalling is absolutely necessary, do not attempt to use Spring Bean or any other bouncing tactic on it. This will only benefit the Zombot 1000 to be played again, and let it destroy the player's plant fighters once more.
However, the best tactic is to simply disallow usage of the Zombot 1000, and win the battle before the 9th turn, or before they can play the card. It is much better to be safe and win as fast as possible, than sorry and have a Zombot 1000 on the play area. In addition, try to save some cards so you can have some methods into stopping it when Zombot 1000 is played. Otherwise, if you have a very low amount of cards, it is a very high chance that the plant hero can be destroyed quickly. If the zombie hero has 6 health or less, you can play Grapes of Wrath to stress the zombie hero into playing Zombot 1000.
One can also use a Cornucopia to restore lost plants, however the chances of survival is still generally low due to how luck-based Cornucopia is.
- During the beta, the satellite was layered incorrectly and appeared behind the antenna.
- Its design is highly based on the original Zombot. However, it is unknown if Dr. Zomboss is controlling it.
- It is the only science zombie in the Beastly class.
- Its ability is very similar to the Zombot in Plants vs. Zombies as it can thaw out fireballs to destroy plants.
- The same happens to Zombot's Wrath.
