In Plants vs. Zombies, Crazy Dave says that he knows the Zomboss’ weakness and says to hit him in the pancreas, but then he says no, that was a different guy.

What guy/boss is Dave alluding to?

I highly doubt that he was just making a joke, saying something stupid, or being crazy because right after that, he says Press Left, Left, Right, Right, Up, Down… oh wait, that’s not it either.

This is clearly not just a stupid comment or joke, it’s a definitive allusion to the Konami code.

It's possible Crazy Dave wasn't alluding to anyone; after all, he is crazy. – Kevin Yap Jul 26 '11 at 6:15
I bet its some sort of obscure movie reference – William Lawn Stewart Jul 26 '11 at 8:59
Ow, my pancreas! – jwaddell Jul 26 '11 at 23:20
Kevin, not likely, check the update. William, I’m fairly sure it’s a game reference, check the update. jwaddell, wth was that‽ – Synetech Jul 27 '11 at 0:43
@Syne The first part is just a generic reference to the fact that bosses often have an obscure weak spot. The fact that the second part is a reference to a specific thing doesn't mean that the first part has to be also. – bwarner Jul 27 '11 at 13:27

As far as I can tell, there are no bosses with a 'weakness in the pancreas'. Given that hitting someone in the pancreas would be a really stupid way to describe hitting someone in the stomach/kidneys anyway:


I reckon this is just a stupid comment and nothing more.

Either my google-fu is very weak, or there is no bad guy who succumbs to a pancreas hit. Just because the second line is a reference doesn't mean the first is. – DJClayworth Feb 23 '12 at 19:26

The Zom-Boss. Before the level begins crazy Dave says "hit him in the pancreas! ... Wait no!" Then gets snatched by a bungee zombie

Crazy Dave says that was another guy. – KatieK Jan 4 '13 at 6:04
