Crazy Dave is here

Penny arrives from a portal and Crazy Dave gets outside, then Penny dissapears into the portal.

Special Attack

Neutral B - Peashooter

Crazy Dave will use "1 Sun" to use Peashooter. Holding "B", Crazy Dave will take out and hold a potted Peashooter that fires peas from it's mouth at a normal pace, Crazy Dave is able to walk and jump while holding the Peashooter as long as "B" is held down, releasing "B" or initially taping "B" will cause Crazy Dave to place the Peashooter down, the Peashooter will continuously spit peas in the direction it is facing. If Crazy Dave collects a "Sun Ball" from a Sunflower while holding Pea Shooter, it will transform into a Repeater which causes it to fire 2 peas at a time and again into a Gatling Pea firing 4 peas at a time. Peashooter is vulnerable to attacks from behind and can be destroyed, exploding into multiple multicolored flowers as it is removed from the stage. Peashooter will eventually wilt and burst into multiple multicolored flowers if it is not watered. To water Peashooter, Dave must simply stand close to or "on top of" a Peashooter and press "B". On Ice Stages, it becomes Snow Pea where it shoots a frozen pea that freezes opponents, when using Torchwood, the frozen pea became a regular pea. Like with Repeater and Gatling Pea, if Dave collect a "Sun Ball" from a sunflower, while holding Snow Pea, it transforms into Ice Queen Pea, where it shoots three frozen peas. When is in fire stage, it becomes Flaming Pea, where it does exactly like Torchwood, but without him.

Side B- Chomper

Crazy Dave will use "1 Sun" to use the Chomper Plant. This guy is real big-,and really hungry. When Crazy Dave takes out Chomper he is taken out in a potted plant and sorta tossed to the ground, during that time Chomper will take a big bite at anyone in its range dealing DMG, when Chomper reaches the ground he will watch for opponents that can be attacked for example, anyone on the same platform as him. When opponents land on a platform that Chomper is on, he will pop out of his pot and dive into the ground, just the spikes on his head are visible, he "swims" through the dirt like some sort of Plant Shark and when he is below an opponent he emerges, teeth first and swallows them, chewing on them viciously. Opponents can button mash to break free, and when they do Chomper bursts into smaller multicolored flowers.

Up B- Umbrella Leaf

Crazy Dave will use "1 Sun" to use Umbrella Leaf. Crazy Dave pulls his legs up, placing an Umbrella Leaf under his feet, letting go of the potted Umbrella Leaf, Crazy Dave comes down onto the Umbrella Leaf, and suddenly Umbrella Leaf expands, growing three times its original size and springs upward, sending Crazy Dave flying into the air though this deals no damage. Crazy Dave gains a LOT of vertical air, not to mention it will send anyone else that touches it flying with big knock back.

Down B- Sun Flower

Crazy Dave digs into the ground and plants a Sunflower. The Sunflower bounces happily in place after 20 seconds it will glow brightly and produce a Sun ball. Only Crazy Dave can grab these. The Sun Balls will allow Crazy Dave to use 1 "B" attack so it's pretty important to plant as many Sunflowers on the stage as possible to allow Crazy Dave to unleash his full potential. Of course the Sunflower is a plant and should be taken care of, if Crazy Dave does not water Sunflower after a while, she will wilt and burst into smaller multicolored flowers and vanish from the stage. Sunflower can also be attacked by players as if she were an enemy, if Sunflower receives too much damage she will explode into small multicolored flowers. Crazy Dave can water a Sunflower Plant by standing next to it or "on" it and pressing "Down" + "B". Crazy Dave can plant up to 5 Sunflowers on a stage at a time, if a foe gets close to Sunflower, she will stop bouncing raise her head to the sky and then fire a short range Sun Beam at foes this deals racking damage, but does not cause flinching.

Final Smash- Corn Strike

The camera zooms into Crazy Dave who yells gibberish and points at the sky. from here players now have an aerial view of the stage but the stage is getting bigger, players are also given a target, they should line up the target with the desired area, as their soon discover they were controlling a cob cannon's payload and a giant corn cob slams into the stage and explodes into popcorn, dealing huge knock back and massive damage to a fairly big area. Crazy Dave chuckles to himself as the final smash ends.

Dn: Crazy Dave will take out a Magnet-Shroom and admire it, until it pulls his sauce pan off his head, he gets shocked at first, then pops his head back into the pan and detatches Magnet-Shroom from the pan with a weird giggle, Crazy Dave puts Magnet-Shroom away.

Character Description

Crazy Dave is the deuteragonist in the Plants vs. Zombies series. He wears a saucepan on his head, presumably to protect his brains from being eaten, but maybe just because he's crazy. During Adventure Mode, Crazy Dave serves as a sort of narrator, introducing the player to certain levels and explaining some of the mini-games and bonus levels. He is later abducted by a Bungee Zombie on level 5-10 right before he can tell the player Dr. Zomboss' weakness. He also has a shop called Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies that he runs from the back of his car, once the player finds his car keys (after level 3-4). He sells several plant upgrades, extra defenses, and Zen Garden items.
