This zombie seems to have mundane stats for its cost. In fact, however, Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 is a really powerful zombie on its own, with an incredible ability that prevents every zombie on board from taking damage and being destroyed for one turn (unless they are destroyed by Briar Rose's ability in combat), and the Gravestone trait.

Speaking of its ability, this zombie is also useful for protecting glass cannons like Fishy Imp and Cuckoo Zombie from damage. Thanks to its Gravestone trait, the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 is immune to plant tricks and fighters, as long as the plant hero doesn't have Blockbuster, Grave Buster or Grave Mistake. As a result, the plant hero will not be able to do anything once this zombie is revealed. To maximize Zombot Battlecruiser 5000's ability, try to fill every lane but one with zombies. The remaining empty lane will be reserved for the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000.

Planetary Gladiator is also a good pair with this card, as the zombie hero and any other zombies on the field will be invulnerable for the turn the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 is revealed, in a similar fashion to Uncrackable and Peel Shield combined. As Z-Mech, do not pair this with zombies like Newspaper Zombie (unless it is already damaged and has high strength) and Jester, as they will be unable to activate their abilities.

Arguably the best hero to use with the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 is Neptuna. She can take advantage of its Gravestone trait with Headstone Carver. Another good strategy for Neptuna is playing Mixed-Up Gravedigger or In-Crypted to reactivate its ability on the next turn. In addition, this is in the science tribe, which will benefit Rustbolt when using a science deck, where he can have a Zombot Drone Engineer on the field, which will cause the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 to be able to inflict more damage, play Gadget Scientist while the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 is still in play to make it do a devastating Bonus Attack. One of the best possible things to do with it is conjure it with a Cosmic Scientist, as the Bullseye trait is devastating with a zombie with such high strength. Interdimensional Zombie will transform into a 3 brain cost zombie when you play it. However, keep in mind that after the transformation is complete, a zombie that cost 3 brains will not be shielded. It is also possible to Conjure it with Barrel of Barrels. It will get [[File:|20px|link=]] from this, now able to take out the few plants it originally wouldn't be able to.


Since this zombie hides in a gravestone, you can easily destroy this zombie using Grave Buster or Blockbuster if you think the zombie hero has spent most of their brains while there is only one gravestone. If you cannot deal with this situation, try to play cards to damage and destroy all other zombies before it is revealed to prevent most of the zombies from being protected this turn. It is also best to get rid of Planetary Gladiator, otherwise not even PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough plants, which will normally be able to hit the zombie hero even if they cannot hurt the zombies, will be able to do damage to anything.

If Grave Buster is unavailable, using Briar Rose combined with many cheap flowers like Sunflower or Morning Glory will be a valid strategy, as even though the zombies cannot be hurt, Briar Rose can still destroy them outright, thus negating the ability somewhat. Grave Mistake can also be used instead of Grave Buster, but bear in mind that it will still allow your opponent to play this zombie again.

Do not play glass cannons such as Magnifying Grass or Bonk Choy if you suspect that the zombie hero has played this card, as they will likely be destroyed, and in the case of Bonk Choy, its one-turn strength boost will be useless.

You also want to be careful because the Zombot Battlecruiser 5000 has great raw stats, so it can be tough to destroy it even after the turn it is played. It is best to use instant-kill tricks such as Shamrocket, Squash and Lawnmower. Using a glass cannon like the aforementioned Magnifying Grass will also work. Sizzle can also take it out if unboosted.



  • It is currently the only Zombot in the game not to been based on any Zombot from any other game, as the Zombot Plank Walker, Zombot Sharktronic Sub, and Zombot Aerostatic Gondola are based on the Zombots from Plants vs. Zombies 2, while Zombot 1000 is based on either the original zombot or the Ultra-Zombot 6000.
  • It was originally a garbage science zombie in development. This could be because it has a small resemblance to a garbage truck.
  • When it activates its ability, it will create a force field similar to the one Planetary Gladiator makes when he activates his ability.
  • It has the highest strength out of all legendary gravestone zombies.
  • When it is played, the jaw sprite of the Imp driving the Zombot briefly appears in front of the face sprite. This is most likely a glitch.
