Buckethead Zombie is a zombie who had been first introduced in the Plants vs. Zombies Plush episode, Heat Wave. In the episode, Buckethead had been manipulating the sun's rays to produce more heat. This strategy would essentially burn the plants.
Buckethead is quite different compared to the other zombies. He has white skin with red eyes as well as having sharp fangs for his teeth. He is wrapped completely in bandages, though he appears to have mummy pants separate from his shirt. He also of course wears a large blue, white and yellow bucket atop his head. He speaks with an old, English sounding voice. In the later episodes of Season 1, he would tend to drop seed packets, which contains new plants.
The clumsy brother of one of the pharaohs of Egypt, Buckethead and his brother were strange rulers to say the least. They loved to throw crocodiles in the fire, as well as love their powerful rule of the land. Buckethead loved buckets, jars and pots. He loved them so much that he started using them as decorations for his head. Eventually, this hobby got out of hand, and a bucket suffocated him, being too tight for his head. Many years later, after being broken open by his brother, Buckethead Mummy emerged! He proceeded to help Ra eat his subjects brains, and also gained the ability of high power. When Dr. Zomboss showed up in his time machine, he took Ra and Buckethead with him. Buckethead was used in Heat Wave, where he made the sun's heat more intense.
Starting with "Heat Wave", Buckethead has appeared in every episode of Plants vs. Zombies Plush. In most of the night levels in the backyard, Buckethead had dropped various plants. He has since stopped dropping plants ever as they started with the pool levels.
Buckethead has also appeared in Peashooter and Paco's Adventure, starting with the Pool level, alongside with his brother.
"ZOMBOSS, YOU SAID A POTTY WORD!"
"Alright Ra, Calm down, calm down, it's okay!"
"I'll only do it once every 50 years."
"OH NO I DROPPED SOMETHING AGAIN!"
"I'LL DO ANYTHING TO BE WITH THE BOSS. NOOOOO!"
"*Blows Raspberry* ZOMBOSS YOU SAID A POTTY WORD! YOU SAID A POTTY WORD! STOP SAYING POTTY WORDS ON THE INTERNET!"
"I am bald... I am bald..."
"Wait, Where did you get that chainsaw?"
"My pants are falling down! NO!!!"
"What are they doing?"
- Although he possesses the ability to manipulate the Sun's energy, Bucketed has not done this since Heat Wave.
