Characters: Plants vs. Zombies

A list of plants, zombies, and other characters from Plants vs. Zombies and its sequel, 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.
  • Big "NO!": A loud "Nooo!" can be heard from inside the house if the zombies managed to breach your defences.
  • Crazy Survivalist: Except they use mutant plants instead of firearms as weapons.
  • Featureless Protagonist/The Ghost: He/she doesn't appear in person, and is supposed to be the player themselves.
  • Heroic Mime: As mentioned in Featureless Protagonist, the player character don't even appear in person, let alone have any lines. The only time he/she speaks is when the zombies eats them. See Big "NO!".
  • Scream Discretion Shot: In a game over scenario, the zombies break into your house to eat your brains. However this is not a horror 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.
  • Big Good: He's the main guy who helps you. In Garden Warfare, it shows.
  • Catch Phrase: BECAUSE I'M CRAAAAAAAZY!
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Isn't called Crazy Dave for nothing.
  • Ditzy Genius: He comes up with very effective (yet bizarre) methods of fighting against the zombies and is able to build a time machine, but as he quickly explains, he is crazy.
  • 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.
  • Large Ham: His dialogue certainly shows he really chews the scenery.
  • Tinfoil Hat: He wears a saucepan as a helmet, probably to shield his brains from zombies.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Bacon, in the first game. He's willing to pay you $1,000 for one strip.
    • In the second game, he seems to have developed an obsession for taco, and is willing to travel through timelines to get one.

Penny

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.
  • Computer Voice: Implied to have a female one.
  • Cool Car: She's a highly intelligent talking car that can bypass the boundaries of time and space. Hardly can get cooler than that.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has several moments of this towards Crazy Dave, such as:
    Crazy Dave: Is this Last Stand?
    Penny: No, this is First Sit. It was sarcasm.
  • The Smart Girl: She does most of the exposition in the second game.
  • Straight Woman: Despite being created by him, she is usually the one who talks common sense into Dave, and tries to calm him down whenever he's acting up.
  • Time Machine: Penny brings both Dave and the PC through different timelines, such as: Ancient Egypt, the Wild West, Far Future, the Dark Ages, etc.
