Battlez: Explode-O-Nut's All-Out Tournament
Treat this zombie as you would a Conehead Pirate but with the ability to instantly kill your plants. This zombie also walks slower, and is more likely to hide in crowds of zombies. The parrot has nearly the same health as the zombie himself, so it is better to just kill the zombie quickly, as it will kill the parrot too, provided the parrot is still sitting on him. Use Kernel-pults or Shrinking Violet to instantly kill the parrot or a Blover or Hurrikale to blow it away. Then, go for the zombie, as without his parrot, he is basically the same as a Conehead Pirate without armor. Most defenses can repel these zombies, but always beware of his parrot's stealing abilities. It is also worth noting that, no matter how many plants the parrot has already stolen, it can always steal more. This makes it similar to Wizard Zombies and Octo Zombies, as it can instantly kill all of your plants from a safe distance.
Pirate Captain Zombie is at his deadliest level when in Save Our Seeds levels. Unlike Wizard or Octo Zombie's instant disabling abilities, his parrot stealing the plant does count as losing it. If his parrot steals the endangered plant (and it usually does, since the endangered plants tend to be placed close to the front of the lawn), it will instantly end your game. To prevent this, bring Blover, boosted Kernel-pult, or boosted Shrinking Violet to instantly kill Zombie Parrots attempting to abduct endangered plants.
A cheap and fast way to stop the Pirate Captain Zombie is to use the Iceberg Lettuce to freeze the captain. This prevents the parrot from being released to abduct a plant. The player can also use Spring Bean to instantly defeat him in Pirate Seas.
Beware that this zombie, unlike Wizard Zombie or Octo Zombie, can use his parrot, even when off-screen. Also note that if the parrot is already in the air, killing the captain will not stop the parrot from stealing a plant.
