** In the Portal minigame, sometimes the portals will spawn right in front of the house door. If any zombie gets to that portal, game over.

** ANY story mission after you beat the game once. After that, you start at the beginning, but Crazy Dave forces three random plants into your setup. Now, this doesn't sound so bad at first, but it will completely ruin any strategy you've developed by the endgame, which typically use all the available slots. What makes this worse is that simply going back to the menu and coming back to Story won't give you three more random plants, just the same three. So, to try your luck with the three random plants, you have to close the game, then launch it again.

The DS version is even worse--closing the game won't work, you have to shut the system off completely.



* ManEatingPlant: No men, but Chompers chew up and swallow a fair bit of zombies. They look suspiciously like purple piranha plants from ''VideoGame/SuperMario''. Or [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors Audrey]], who the Chomper auditioned to play.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Several zombies are counters for Wall-Nuts. In addition, they eventually realize that attacking the front yard is ineffective and start attacking the backyard instead (where people would typically be less observant) and eventually the roof (since people rarely look up).

* {{EMP}}: The E.M.Peach.



* GraveHumor: The graves can sometimes have funny inscriptions on them ([[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus "Bereft of Life", "Just Resting"]], "Expired"...)



** The Newspaper Zombie is docile but then goes berserk when you destroy his newspaper.



* HeatWave: There's a minigame named exactly that. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Guess what it involves.]]

* PlantMooks: your plant army is essentially this, as they're deployed against invading zombies.

* SpeakingSimlish: A variant; Crazy Dave is crazy enough that he's no longer actually speaking anything but gibberish, but you've known him long enough that you can translate. Also likely done deliberately to save on disk space; the whole game only takes up 25 MB.[[note]]Unless you have the GOTY edition, which takes up 50 MB due to the extra features it comes with, or the PS3 edition, which takes up a whopping 100MB due to all the support libraries being self-contained.[[/note]] And ease up localization in other languages: the French version has every text dutifully translated, but the audio (mostly "Braaaains") and the final song stay in English.

** Various zombies, including the Zomboni, the Catapult Zombie's vehicle, the Gargantuar, and even the ''Zombot itself'' can stand on your roof without collapsing it. Hell, Dr. Zomboss can throw ''Winnebagos'' at your roof and it doesn't collapse.

* DiggingToChina: Scroll down on the achievement screen in the Game of the Year edition, and, after encountering a few [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to other PopCap games, you'll emerge on the other side of the Earth in China. [[spoiler:Apparently, they have a zombie problem too...]]
