Seas of Bronze is the first world of PvZ2: Unknown Eras DLC. It is correspondent to the pre-Hellenic period of Ancient Greece, more specifically to the Peloponnesian War, where suspicious actions taken by the City-State of Athens led to a war between this City-State and Sparta. In the game, this is referenced through divisions and the zombies' characteristics.
Small Lotus (from the Chinese Version) is the gem premium plant that represents the Spartan Domains and Rolling Gourd is the money premium plant that represent the Athens Domains (for info about the meaning of these "domains", check the Division section).
The world' s description tells that this world is in the time of the Peloponnesian War, it reads:
The harsh years of 427 B.C, the Peloponnesian War. Zombies set sail to get the brains, but plants of honor will defend the lawn with their strategy and skills. Who will win this epic conflict?
It is divided in 2 parts:
- The first one is called Seas of Bronze-Spartan Domains and goes from Day 01 to Day 20 (Gargantuar Boss Fight). In the world map, it is identified by the presence of water and grass in the "floating islands" that show the levels, it also features swords and spear flying in Low-Gravity. In the grass patch that includes Day 09, Day 10 and Day 11, a bronze statue of Hoplite Zombie can be seen. In the Spartan Domains, the Gargantuar Boss battle level is located in an island with a white floor, an artificial river clay pots on pillars and a giant hand holding a World Key.
- The second is called Seas of Bronze-Athens Domains and goes from Day 21 to Day 40 (Dr. Zomboss Boss Fight). In the world map, it is identified by the presence of pillars and clay pots in the "floating islands" that show the levels, flying swords can still be seen, but along with them, there are also floating rocks. Mount Olympus can be seen near Day 35, if the player completes this level, a thunderbolt will hit it and make it explode, revealing a "floating island" with lava and clay pots. This revealed island contains the Endless Area of Seas of Bronze, called "Olympian Onslaught". In the Athens Domains, the Zomboss Boss battle level is located in an island with a giant fire cave, a parthenon and a river with a broken boat.
The world has water, where Lily Pads can be planted. Unlike Big Wave Beach, the amount of water tiles is the same at all levels and won' t change during the gameplay (this means no Low Tide Events).
The Weapon Stands are similar to the ones at Kung-Fu World. They will turn a common zombie into a zombie with a special ability, but can also give armor, such as cones and buckets.
A new Gimmick. Projectiles will bethrown at random places of the lawn can have 4 types: Arrow, Flamming Hay Bale, Zombie Goo and Rocks:
- Arrows won' t do a major damage, only slightly damaging plants, but they come in great quantities.
- Flaming Hay Bale will instantly destroy the plant and create a fire tile. Fire tiles won' t allow planting and will create other 2 adjacent fire tiles every 45 seconds. Fire tiles can be disabled by Carpistachio (except when it is using the Fire Carpet) and Rolling Gourd.
- Zombie Goo won' t do damage, but will slow the plants down. It can be disabled by Carpistachio (except if it is using the Normal Mode).
- Rocks will destroy plants in a 4x4 area and will act like a grave. They can be destroyed by Rolling Gourd or Venus Trap.
Every projectile can be reflected by Umbrella Leaf.
Crazy Dave: "Hey Penny, we' ve got a boat again, like on Pirate Seas. Oh, I really missed these times..."
Penny: "My database tells that this ship is made for battles and can carry a little army."
Crazy Dave: "Cool! Did they also have Tacos in Greece?"
Penny: "Err... I don' t think so, User Dave."
Penny: "User Dave, I detected that Zombies are in possession of potentially harmful projectiles."
Crazy Dave: "And we don' t have anything to defend ourselves?"
Penny: "No, but I' m sure that we' ll find something soon..."
Crazy Dave: "Look at this little trail, Penny! Will it take us to see the Wizard?"
Penny: "No, it' s even worse... This is known as Olympian Trail. The zombies think that they' ll reach Mt. Olympus and become gods if they follow it."
Crazy Dave: "Oh! So we' ll have to plan according to the way of the trail, yes?"
Penny: "That' s the worse part, User Dave... The trail keeps changing."
Crazy Dave: "If there are really gods at the end of the trail, we' d better pray to them."
Day 19 (After level)
Penny: "Hmmmm...Homer' s Iliad. Why was a zombie carrying it?"
Crazy Dave: "Maybe it was trying to keep informed."
Penny: "It' s a possibility, but I also think that it can be a Declaration of War..."
Dr. Zomboss: "Foolish bronze soldier! This is a dead end for you! Can' t you see?"
Dr. Zomboss: "We have an advantage! Our ships are surrounding the whole Aegean Sea and you have less than 300 soldiers with you! Foolish!"
Crazy Dave: "Wow, they already called me crazy, but not foolish..."
Crazy Dave: "Wait... We just defeated the Gargantuar and the zombies are already surrendering? They are abandoning their weapons on these pods."
Penny: "They are not surrendering, User Dave. I made a terrain analysis and detected that some zombies deployed these pods recently. Probably trying to help other zombies."
Crazy Dave: "That' s not good..."
Day 20 (After level)
Crazy Dave: "Hey! A Key! So I' m not foolish at all."
Crazy Dave: "Crud! At this point the zombies should already have arrived at Mount Olympus, why are they still following this path.
Penny: "Well, if they had reached it, we would have a problem right now..."
Day 35 (After Level)
Crazy Dave: "Good! We have a golden jar now, just when I thinking about a better place to store hot sauce!"
Penny: "These golden jars are supposed to store the sacred beverage that could make the gods guide the mankind to Mount Olympus!"
Crazy Dave: "So we found Mount Olympus even without following that stupid path?"
Penny: "Yes, but my sensors are detecting danger ahead..."
Dr. Zomboss: "Salutations! I didn' t came as a messenger Healot for you, but for the plants! I shall tell you the message..."
Dr. Zomboss: "I know that you do lots of things for them, like protecting their lawn from us, but I want to ask you a question: Did they ever protect you?"
Dr. Zomboss: "For example, look at the little Peashooter here (referring to a pre-planted Peashooter on the lawn). Do you think they can protect it from my massive destruction machine?"
Crazy Dave: "Wait no! Don' t do anything to the little Peashooter!"

The Way to Olympus is a new world-exclusive Brain Buster. In these levels the zombies will always follow a single way marked by unplantable white tiles, that are protected by fences that must be destroyed in order to attack the zombies. The way changes during the level' s progression, rebuilding the fences too.
In these levels, the Spartiate Zombie is the biggest threat, due to its speed.
Dark Stormy Night
This minigame was originally scrapped in Plants vs. Zombie and would be like an adventure mode level: Pool-Night 10 (or Level 4-10). This Brain Buster consists on a Special Delivery level, but the lawn is affected by a rainy effect and may get dark sometimes, turning visible again after a thunder is heard.
In Seas of Bronze, this Brain Buster only appears in Day 40, where you also battle Dr. Zomboss.
Seas of Bronze' s Music Tracks use instruments from Player' s House (Tutorial and Piñata Parties), Far Future, Dark Ages, Frostbite Caves and Lost City. The musics are marked by the great use of violins in a leitmotif.
The final wave theme is a remix of the final section of Plants vs. Zombies' s main menu theme.
