Zombot Sphinx-inator is the boss of Ancient Egypt in Plants vs. Zombies 2 controlled by Dr. Zomboss, and is battled in Ancient Egypt - Day 25 and there is a chance it can be fought in Modern Day - Day 32. It can send out any zombie from Ancient Egypt, excluding the Flag Mummy Zombie, Ra Zombie, and Camel Zombies. It takes up a two-by-two area at the right side of the lawn, jumping to different rows occasionally. It can only send out zombies in two rows at a time, and it can only be attacked in the two rows it occupies at any one time. Unlike the original Zombot, the Sphinx-inator can be attacked at any time, provided there are plants in the same row he moves to.

Almanac entry

International version

TOUGHNESS: Undying
SPEED: Hungry

The destroyer of plants from the ancient sands.

Special: missile attack can create tombstones

To add that extra bit of wickedness to the Sphinx-inator Dr. Zomboss chiseled his creation from the stonework of cursed tombs. You should not take this instance of reuse and recycle to mean he's going green. The only thing green about him is his tongue.

Chinese version

Dr. Zomboss, driving a high-tech car specially built for the desert, will use a variety of attacks.

Everyone says that cars take after their owners, this phrase also applies to him.

In Chinese:
驾驶沙漠专用高科技座驾的僵尸博士 , 会使用多种攻击方式 。

都说车如其人 , 这句话对僵尸博士也一样适用 。

Overview

The Zombot Sphinx-inator approximately absorbs 925 normal damage shots. Its appearance changes upon absorbing 200 normal damage shots and 600 normal damage shots before dying at 925 normal damage shots.

Attacks

The Zombot Sphinx-inator randomly performs one of the following actions:

Phase HP Summoned zombies
1 200 Mummy Zombie2 Conehead Mummy2 Buckethead Mummy2 Tomb Raiser Zombie2
2 400 Conehead Mummy2 Buckethead Mummy2 Mummified Gargantuar2 (summons Imp Mummy2) Imp Mummy2

China only: Mummified Gargantuar2 (summons Imp Mummy2)
4 (China only)  ??? Explorer Zombie2 Tomb Raiser Zombie2 Pharaoh Zombie2 Mummified Gargantuar2 Imp Mummy2


  • A target will appear on a random space and the Sphinx-inator will shoot a missile at that space, destroying any plant on it, attempting to create two tombstones in an adjacent tile.
  • The Sphinx-inator will tap its front two legs on the ground, step back, and then charge forwards, destroying all plants and zombies in two rows. It will then stop short of the lawn mowers, and jump back to the rightmost column.
    • It is possible to stun it with the Plant Food effects of Repeaters, Bloomerangs, Bonk Choys or Cabbage-pults when it uses this attack, preventing the attack from destroying two whole rows.
      • It is also possible to do this by making it hit an armored Wall-nut, but the Zombot Sphinx-inator will not be damaged when this occurs.

Trivia

  • Its Almanac entry says the only thing green about Dr. Zomboss is his tongue, which is incorrect because his body is green, and if one looks closely, his tongue is in a normal pinkish hue.
  • Before the fight, Dr. Zomboss suspected Crazy Dave as a brain-eater like them because he thinks the meat inside Crazy Dave's taco was brain meat.
    • When Zombot Sphinx-inator is defeated, the player is awarded the Ancient Egypt Trophy. Also, after receiving the trophy, Crazy Dave pops out and confirmed there was no meat inside the taco. Dr. Zomboss says "Well, that just leaves more brain for us later" and claimed he will return for a real pay-back. He then teleports away with what is left of the Zombot Sphinx-inator.
      • But if one looks closely at the start, he or she can see that Crazy Dave does have meat in his taco, but it's just merely taco meat.
  • When the Zombot Sphinx-inator is frozen and about to shoot a missile, it will be blue, but when it comes back from the top, it is no longer frozen.
  • Before the 2.3 update, if an Iceberg Lettuce was hit with a missile, the Iceberg Lettuce would somehow freeze the Zombot Sphinx-inator.
  • The missiles launch Tomb Raiser Zombie's bones on tiles surrounding where it hit on impact.
  • In the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 before the version 1.8.0, battling this Zombot can have the following:
    • A conveyor-belt manner which is the typical type (Level 1);
    • A Last Stand without the aid of sun-producing plants (Level 2);
    • And lastly, a Last Stand manner with the aid of sun-producing plants but the Zombot Sphinx-inator will have four phases of health. (Level 3)
  • In the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, previously, there was the boss music in the battle. But then, the boss music has been replaced by the Player's House music.
  • In the Chinese version before the 1.8.0 version, the Zombot Sphinx-inator will automatically disappear instead of teleporting after the player gets the prize.
  • In the Chinese version, this is the only Zombot which takes only 1 row to stand.
  • There is a glitch where after the Zombot is defeated and when you plant the Iceberg Lettuce on it and after the money bag is collected, it would slow the Zombot down when Dr. Zomboss is about to teleport away.
    • Also, in Modern Day - Day 32, there is another glitch where after the Zombot is defeated and when the player plants the Spikeweed underneath, it will still attack the Zombot.
    • Additionally, when you plant a Spring Bean underneath a Zombot, it will look like it is ready to bounce, but it does not bounce the Zombot back.
