* GoodBadBugs
** Whether it was accidental programming or an actual bug, at one point Fume-Shroom had the ability to hit not only zombies within short range in front of it, but also zombies in the rows above and below it. Suffice to say, this turned Fume-Shroom into a massive GameBreaker until this buff was eventually... fixed.

** 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.

* UglyCute: The zombies.

* UglyCute: The zombies. Wall-eyed, lopsided, with snaggle teeth and endearingly {{Narm}}-y voices. They've been very successfully merchandised as a result of this trope, with several sets of plushies and vinyl figures.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The game was released in 2009. The Dancing Zombie originally looked like Music/MichaelJackson. Six months after the game was released, the King of Pop died of cardiac arrest. [[UnfortunateImplications Whoops]]. They ended up [[OrwellianRetcon "fixing"]] [[{{Bowdlerization}} this]] in a patch, reverting the Dancing Zombie to Disco Stu.

* DemonicSpiders:
** ''Plants vs. Zombies'' classic:
*** Gargantuars are [[GiantMook large]], powerful zombies that can instantly kill any plant (except the [[SpikesOfDoom Spikerocks]]), are able to take a TON of damage, can survive [[OneHitKill instant-kill plants]], and can deploy a [[MiniMook small, albeit weaker zombie]] deep into your defenses. Fortunately for you, [[MightyGlacier they are kind of slow]]...
*** Giga-Gargantuars are even worse. They take significantly more to kill, and have [[RedEyesTakeWarning crazed red eyes]]. Notably, they were put into Survival: Endless because the regular ones were too easy for early play.
*** The Jack-in-the-Box Zombie can instantly destroy your defenses. ''Including'' Spikerocks, which otherwise take 9 hits from a Gargantuar or vehicle to die.
*** Zombonis. They cannot be slowed by Snow Peas and Wintermelons, nor can they be stopped by Ice-shrooms or Kernel-pults' butter. They squash all your plants in the way and they are freaking fast! To top it off, they leave an unplantable ice trail that needs to be melted with a jalapeno and said ice trail causes bobsled zombies to appear. Thankfully, [[SpikesOfDoom Spikeweed and Spikerocks]] will finish them off in [[OneHitKill one hit]] should they run over one. And the ice disappears after a short period.
*** Pole-Vault and Dolphin-Rider Zombies can be EXTREMELY infuriating. Their abilities render defensive plants like Wall-Nut and Garlic useless. Take this advice, Tall-Nut is your friend. Or just place a cheap plant in front to force them to jump.
** "I, Zombie":
*** Magnet-shrooms. They take away bucket heads, mining picks, ladders and football helmets, making many of your tougher and more expensive zombies get easily decimated. Starfruit and Threepeaters can attack other columns/rows, providing extra firepower and easily screwing up your [[FragileSpeedster imps]] should you choose to send them down a (seemingly) harmless row.
*** Kernel-pults, due to their [[LuckBasedMission random chance]] of throwing butter that stuns your zombies, can become these should the RandomNumberGod choose to be nasty and cause them to constantly chuck butter. Coupled with snow peas that slow your zombies from reaching them, and you may have a nightmare on your hands.

** Any sound made by an Imp Zombie, especially in the second game where they're now common enemies.
** Dr. Zomboss' maniacal laughter can also get on your nerves.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The reception to the Game of the Year Edition update which changed the Dancing Zombie (after official objections from the estate of Michael Jackson) from a blatant reference to MichaelJackson's ''Thriller'' video to a DiscoDan. Though, the new disco zombie is at least amusing, and makes for a clever VisualPun regarding [[DeaderThanDisco disco being... well, dead]].
