This is a (currently abandoned) story that tells how the first battle between Plants and Zombies unfolded.
- I will make 1 part
per daywhenever I get the chance.
- Even though this fanfic takes place before the first game, plants and zombies from Plants vs. Zombies Adventures and Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time will appear, along with a brand-new zombie.
- Princess Kitty, if you want to, you can make some artwork for each part to show what is happening. (but please try to have no more than 2 images per part)
This is where the music for this fanfic will go:
- Writer: IMCR8Z
- Illustrator: Princess Kitty

This fanfic has multiple references to movies and TV shows:
- When Harvey Flexcaster offers Crazy Dave the seed packets, Crazy Dave says to him "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!" This is a reference to the TV show Futurama.
- The origina name for the town where most of this fanfic takes place in Endsville, Nevada. This is a reference to the TV show The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.
- When Poncho Zombie first meets Crazy Dave, he says "I'll swallow your soul!" to which Crazy Dave replies by saying "Come get some!" This is a reference to the film Army of Darkness.
- When Poncho Zombie is about to attack Dave at the end of Part 5, he says "Hasta la vista, baby!", and when he's defeated, he says "I'll be back!" Both of these lines are a reference to The Terminator.
- The beginning of the story takes place on 5/5/1984, 25 years before the original game was released. The ending takes place on 2/25/2037, 25 years after Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was released.
