Buckethead Zombie always wore a bucket. Part of it was to assert his uniqueness in an uncaring world. Mostly he just forgot it was there in the first place.
The bucket makes him tough! The bucket makes him strong! The bucket makes him pretty much blind and it chafes something awful.
Plants vs. Zombies has a very large collection of memorable zombies (we’ll get to them eventually), but one of the first ones to really annoy you was probably this little shambler. Sure, an extra pea-shooter or two settled things, but until then all you got was *clink* and chomp.
So we celebrate the buckethead zombie as we simultaneously lament all the time we’ve spent with him over the years. Seriously… the books we might have read! The work we could have done! The love we could have made!
