Characters: Plants vs. Zombies
A list of plants, zombies, and other characters from Plants vs. Zombies, a series of tower defense games made by Pop Cap. The game they debuted in should be mentioned. This page is still under construction.

NOTE: This page will cover Protagonists, characters who are neither plants nor zombies, such as humans and others. See the respective sub-pages for Plants and Zombies.

Player Character

The protagonist. He/she is a suburbanite whose house is constantly besieged by zombies.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Except they use mutant plants instead of firearms as weapons.
  • Featureless Protagonist: He/she doesn't appear in person, and is supposed to be the player themselves.
  • Scream Discretion Shot: In a game over scenario, the zombies break into your house to eat your brains. However this is a kid-friendly game, so you only hear the zombies munching while you scream a Big "NO!".

Crazy Dave

The deuteragonist. The player's neighbor, an insane but friendly man who helps them by offering advice and selling them some items.
  • Badass Beard
  • Big Good: He's the main guy who helps you. In Garden Warfare, it shows.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Isn't called Crazy Dave for nothing.
  • Flanderization: In the original, he was a little eccentric and a bit crazy, but still fairly intelligent and knowledgable about the plants and zombies. In It's About Time, he's made much dumber, often relying on Penny to interpret his ramblings.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Except he's a nice guy, and uses mutant plants instead of firearms as weapons.
  • Genius Ditz: While he does act far out, he knows well about the plants and zombies.
  • Insane Hero
  • Large Ham
  • Tinfoil Hat: He wears a frying pan as a helmet, probably to shield his brains from zombies.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He seems to really like tacos. He'll do anything from paying $1,000 to traveling back in time to get one.


The tritagonist. Crazy Dave's RV, who is also a time-traveling robot. Introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 2, taking Dave and the protagonist through the past and future.
