Zookeeper is a basic common zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Beastly IconBeastly class. He costs 2BrainPvZH to play, and has 2StrengthPvZH/2HeartPvZH. He does not have any traits, and his ability gives all pet zombies +1StrengthPvZH every time a pet is played. This ability stacks per Zookeeper, and persists until all Zookeepers are removed from the field.


  • Class: Beastly
  • Tribe: Pet Zombie
  • Ability: When you play another Pet, all Pets get +1StrengthPvZH.
  • Set - Rarity: Basic - Common

Card description




When using this zombie, boost his health as much as you can, as he can survive longer, then play as many pets as you can. Zookeeper will increase the strength for all pet zombies, causing absolute destruction to the enemies. Occasionally, Super Brainz, Professor Brainstorm, or Rustbolt may be able to obtain this from Portal Technician, Summoning or Eureka. In that case, he is less effective since the only pet zombies in classes other than Beastly are:

Sneaky: Zombie Chicken, Fire Rooster, Fishy Imp, Walrus Rider, Zombot Sharktronic Sub (Brain Freeze only)

Crazy: Abracadaver, The Chickening, Hippity Hop Gargantuar (Electric Boogaloo only)

Hearty: Camel Crossing, Turkey Rider (The Smash only)

Brainy: Witch's Familiar, Zom-Bats (Immorticia only)

There are also many tricks and superpowers that are pet-based, such as Locust Swarm and Dolphinado. Use these to the advantage during the trick phase. You can also activate his ability early on by spamming cheap pet zombies such as Skunk Punk or Dog WalkerCat Lady and him also make a good combo, guaranteeing at least 4 damage that turn. Playing a Fishy Imp or Dolphin Rider can also be good because Amphibious zombies are hard to counter. With his ability and their high base strength, they can be good sources of power for the early-to-mid-game.


His ability is really dangerous, so you have to try to destroy it quickly. Due to him having just 2 health, you can destroy this zombie pretty easily. If he is played on the second turn, he cannot be boosted, so you can attack him without having to be aware of him and other pet zombies receiving +1StrengthPvZH. If his stats get too much for you to handle, you could play an instant-kill trick to destroy him.




  • His card description may be a reference to the famous Konami franchise "Metal Gear Solid," where if the player gets a game over, the player can hear the catchphrase "Snaaaaake!"
    • His description might also reference the fact that he has a snake as his pet.
  • Zookeeper has the shortest description in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, only having 10 characters.
