the zombot mimic can be one of the best zombies as it can mimic any plant, including a zoombot, and even a hypnotized gargantuar. one of its better features is the hole-zombot, which can dig a hole under a plant or zoombot. once it digs a hole, it will instantly turn into a zombie and try to kill the zombie or plant. if a zombie is below, it will try to kill it. if a plant is below, it tries to move the dirt into the hole. if it digs a hole through a plant or zoombot, the zombie or plant will disappear. the hole-zombot can also dig a hole under a zombie, though it will take a few seconds.
punk zombies are a great weapon, especially with the death punk zombie, who can't be shredded by your plants but can be hurt by any zombie besides him, including a gargantuar. they can also take over the shrinking violet and use it for sweet damage. when you are very low on energy, a death punk zombie can have the death attribute and use the death power, which deals massive damage to a plant, zombie, or shrinking violet.
any minion zombie can kill any plant, but its main use is to attract zombies to help in single-player. a minion zombie will follow any zombie around and try to eat them, and if enough zombies are near it will attack. if it is surrounded by other zombie or with the zombie bandit zombie, it can summon zombies around.
there are several new wildcards in the second game. thunderthorns are called "blowguns," and they spew wind that deals both damage and stuns zombies. ice mushrooms are called "tillers" and plants that grown on top of them can be used to freeze zombies, temporarily weakening them. the final category are ice cannons that shoot ice, same as ice mushrooms, but unlike ice mushrooms, ice cannons don't grow on plants and deal less damage. 3d9ccd7d82
