All-Star Zombie is always the first one on the field, and the last to leave. He uses suppression fire to hold the Plants at bay, and his Tackle Dummies are the best offensive linemen around.

All-Star Zombie (formerly known as Football Zombie), or simply known as All-Star, is one of the supporting characters of the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. He is a zombie football player who takes part in fighting plants and eats the players' brains.


Plants vs. Zombies

He was first encountered in Night - Level 6 with the name Football Zombie. In this game, he can run fast and very durable with his helmet. The players had to use Magnet-shrooms to reduce his durability quicker.

An upgraded variant of him, Giga-Football Zombie, a black-colored Football Zombie with more health than his predecessor. The Magnet-shrooms cannot remove his helmet, however, the players can use Chompers to instant-kill it.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

He appeared in the canceled game, as seen in the level U of Z. Like the previous counterpart, a Magnet Plant can remove his helmet.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Another variant of him, Mecha-Football Zombie, appeared in Far Future, Level 13. The mech was piloted by a Future Zombie, it has Machined Toughness, but low in speed. The mech can push all plants back one tile, and the farthest plant could be bounced off the ground, so an E.M.Peach is very useful to weaken this zombie.

The Football Zombie also returned in this game with the name All-Star Zombie. He has a Hardened Toughness, and his speed is faster than the first game counterpart until he tackled a plant, then his speed reduced to basic afterward. He also can kick a Super-Fan Imp to the leftmost columns and make it explode and kill a plant. However, Magnet-shrooms cannot remove his helmet.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare series

He also returned in the Garden Warfare series as one of the playable characters of the Zombies' side. His primary weapon is the Football Canon.

In Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, he is a playable character of Defend Class on the Zombies' side.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes

He returned as a Sports Zombie card of Hearty class. The card costs 5, with its rarity is Premium - Super Rare. His traits are Frenzy and Armored, with 4 strengths and 6 healths. When attack, he throws a football at a plant.
