~ Description of Dr. Zomboss and his Zombot from the Almanac entry.

The Zombot is the fearsome robot created by the mad Dr. Zomboss in the first game of Plants vs. Zombies as the final boss in the level 5 - 10 of the roof. It was used by him to summon the zombies to defeat the plants, the Player and eat his brain once and for all.

History

Plants vs. Zombies

Before the final boss battle, Crazy Dave tried to tell Dr. Zomboss's weakness until a bungee zombie grabbed him away.

After that, he sent his Zombot on the roof and fight the player. The Player had to use catapult plants (Cabbage-pults, Kernel-pults and Melon-pults), Flower Pots, Ice-shrooms, and Jalapenos to fight him.

After defeating the Zombot, it shattered into pieces and Dr. Zomboss surrendered with a white flag inside its head, and the player earned Silver Sunflower Trophy and three diamonds. When replayed, the player earned a money bag instead.

In the mini-game, Dr. Zomboss's Revenge, Dr. Zomboss resent his Zombot on the roof with its health doubled. Like the final boss battle, he summoned the same zombies and the player used the same plants as before. After it was destroyed and Dr. Zomboss surrendered with his white flag, the player earned a trophy (a money bag when replayed).

In the mini-game Air Raid of the Nintendo DS version, Zomboss resent his Zombot to fight the Gatling Pea which pilots a Flower Pot-shaped plane. After it was destroyed, the players earned 30,000 points a trophy (a money bag when replayed).
