Master Zen Sensei is one of the major antagonists/enemies of the third player shooter game series of Plants vs. Zombies. He is a zombie martial artist who takes part in fighting plants.


Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Zen Sensei appeared in Ancient Knowledge to help the zombie players to find the Scroll of Instruction.

In Garden Ops mode, Zen Sensei appeared as one of the major bosses during the boss waves. During his battle, Zen Sensei continuously attacks the plant players by punching them and firing energy balls. When his health reaches half, he summons three clones to attack the plants. After he is defeated, Zen Sensei falls down and accepts his defeat.

Zen Sensei also appeared in Infinity Time as one of the enemies during Nemeis Waves.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville

In Fight Zentrification, after the players reach Uno Taco, Zen Sensei pauses his meditation and starts attacking the plant players. When the first phase of the fight is complete, Zen Sensei starts to meditate, which the players have to summon potted plants to defend Uno Taco from his clones.

After Zen Sensei's meditation was disrupted, he once again attacks the players by firing more energy balls and uses a dash punch. When the Zen Master starts his meditation once more, the players have to defend Uno Taco from more powerful clones.

When Zen Sensei's meditation was interrupted once again, he continuously attacks the players before his final moments. After he is defeated, he slowly fades and leaves behind his goatee.
