See those Zebra-striped Bloons? They combine the meanness of White Bloons and Black Bloons, and contain one of each just for fun.
~ Round 27 in Bloons TD 6

The Zebra Bloon is a Bloon that appears in BTD4, BTD5, BSM2, BTD Battles , BMC , and BTD6. Its appearance is a mix of the Black Bloon and White Bloon, and a larger appearance than both Bloons, unless they are regrow. Being a mix of Black and White Bloons, Zebra Bloons are immune to both bombs and ice. The Zebra Bloon is equal to Green and Black Bloons in terms of speed. They first appear on round 26 (25 in BTD4).

Details[]

The Zebra Bloon is one rank above Black Bloon and White Bloon in Bloons TD games, on the same tier as a Lead Bloon. It is around the speed of a Green Bloon (?) and leaks 23 lives if it reaches the exit. As per the multi-layer health system, a popped Zebra Bloon splits into one Black Bloon and one White Bloon when affected by an attack that deals 1 damage. More damage pops the Zebras Bloon into its descendants, following the multi-layer health system of many bloons in the game. The Zebra Bloon's parent is the Rainbow Bloon.

In Bloons TD games and Bloons Pop!, the Zebra Bloon is immune to all freezing and explosive attacks without special upgrades or support. This is especially problematic for both Bomb Shooters and Ice Monkeys, which naturally are weak to these bloon types without accessing powerful higher-tier upgrades.

Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)[]

After the grouped Rainbow Bloons got "nerfed", many players switched over to using grouped Zebra Bloons instead. The Zebra Bloon has not received many changes via game updates.

4.1
  • Nerf Grouped Zebra Bloons price increased ($200 → $220).

Quotes[]

Zebra bloons contain 1 black and 1 white bloon - and they are immune to bombs and ice!
~ Round 25 in Bloons TD 4
Zebra bloons are immune to both explosions and freezing!
~ Message when first time encontering Zebra Bloons along with Black and White Bloons in Bloons TD 5
Next round are many Zebra Bloons. Some of them will be heart-shaped Regen Bloons. Get ready!

Trivia[]

  • Despite their immunity to ice, Zebra Bloons can actually be frozen. This can be done by having an Ice Tower with the Snap Freeze upgrade or an Arctic Wind. When Rainbow Bloons pass by, the Ice Tower will pop them, leaving the Zebra Bloons frozen.
  • The Arctic Wind Tower can still slow it down.
  • Frag Bombs and Bloon Impact can pop Zebra Bloons, but Cluster Bombs cannot, unless the Tier 3 Bombing Range Specialty Building is activated.
  • In BTD4 and BTD5, it is the only bloon to contain two different types of bloon, while in BTD2 and BTD3, this was the Rainbow Bloon.
  • In Bloons Tower Defense 6 both the Zebra Bloon and the B.A.D. are the only bloons that contain two different types of bloon.
  • In BTD4, this is the only Bloon to be introduced in the round after another Camo Bloon (in round 24).
  • A dense amount of Zebra Bloons appears on round 61 in BTD5: 150 regrowth Zebra Bloons come out, along with 5 MOABs, making this level very hard.
  • Zebra Bloons appear to be white with black stripes, rather than there being an equal amount of each color.
  • With Tack Awesomizer, a single set of Road Spikes is almost enough to pop a Zebra Bloon, leaving a single Red Bloon.
  • A camo Zebra Bloon is gray, which is fitting, due to the fact that black and white make gray.
    • A Camo Regrow Zebra Bloon has visible stripes, however.
  • In BTD5 Mobile, One Road Spike can pop one zebra bloon to a green bloon when placed ahead of the zebra bloon.
  • In Bloons Monkey City, if a Rainbow Bloon is popped by Snap Freeze, Zebra Bloons will come out unfrozen.
  • Towers set to strong will attack Zebra Bloons before Lead Bloons, both of which have the same RBE.
  • Oddly in BMC Mobile, Lead Bloons are technically stronger than Zebra Bloons, so Lead tiles actually have Zebras but not leads.
  • In Bloons Tower Defense 6, the Game Hints actually warn you about Zebra Bloons one round too late, though the pop-up introducing the Zebra Bloon still appears on cue.
  • In BTD6, Benjamin's Syphon Funding ability turns Zebra Bloons into White Bloons, even though it should also contain a Black Bloon inside.
