Zombeh Matt is the main antagonist in the Eddsworld Zombeh Attack trilogy. He was bitten by a Zombeh in Zombeh Attack, and it tore off his left arm. He then became a zombeh but retained his mental capacity and is capable of intelligent speech, unlike the other zombehs. He commands the zombeh armies in the first and third installments and appointed himself general in Zombeh Attack 3


Matt was bitten and had his arm torn off by a zombeh when he tried to ask it for directions in Zombeh Attack, which killed him. Edd, Tom and Tord then ran away. This also happened in WTFuture after Future Edd put the wrong coordinates into his time watch, and then refused to help Matt.

At the climax of the episode, Matt appeared again, as a zombeh, and was now in control of the zombeh horde. He told the group that he was getting bored of lying in the gutter, festering. He then orders his acquaintances to attack the group. The battle led to Tord being bitten and killed by a zombeh, and Edd and Tom were forced to retreat, with Matt calling them both cowards.

At some time between this and Zombeh Attack 2, Matt was killed and buried in the same graveyard as Tord. His gravestone had "I decompose in your general direction!" engraved into it.

In Zombeh Attack 2, God commanded Matt to rise from his grave, possibly to find the necronomicon. When he did, he requested a drunken Tom's help to find the necronomicon so his soul could leave his body in peace, Tom threw up on Matt's shoes before agreeing to help. Matt suddenly saw Edd and Tord also trying to find the necronomicon, and ran off before Edd could hit him with his car. On the way to the necronomicon, he ate every survivor he and Tom came across. When the two found the book's resting place, he discovered there were three books. Matt ending up choosing a fake book and was sucked into it.

Somehow, Matt managed to break free from the necronomicon and went to the city to spread the zombeh curse. But this time, his skin was lavender-greyish instead of the usual zombeh green and both his pupils and his irises had turned red. In a short amount of time, Matt had managed to create an even bigger horde of zombehs, with him as their general. He then rode around on a scooter, wearing a general's beret and carrying a cane, then ate a bystander who came up to him. General Matt discovered a skeleton lying on the floor,so he stole one of its arms and used it to replace his left arm which was bitten off in Zombeh Attack. He also told one of his privates, Private Brains, to get a haircut with highlights.

Edd and Tom then confronted the zombeh horde, with Matt as its leader, and he led the charge. Matt attacked Tom with a chainsaw but Tom managed to duck, however he managed to slice off part of Tom's hair. After his army was defeated by Edd and Tom, Edd attacked him with a rubber chicken, causing Matt to fall on a conveniently placed pot of hot cheese fondue. Matt finally met his demise, lying next to his original arm bitten off in Zombeh Attack. His final words were "My arm! Oh, the irony!"

But, despite his demise, Matt had succeeded in killing the group, as Tord was killed by a zombeh in the first Zombeh Attack and Edd and Tom discovered they had both been bitten, indicating they would later die or turn into zombehs. Matt's last evil deed visible was to ruin the mood at the end of the episode by shouting "Boogity Boogity Brains!" at the screen, spoiling the atmosphere.

Matt becomes a Zombeh again in one of the shorts in Edd's Tales of Boredom, where Tom sarcastically adds "Oh no. Matt is a zombeh. I didn't see that one coming." Matt simply replies "Meh, who cares."


"My Arm! Oh the irony!"

"Come Back! Ya cowards!"

"I know! Just come with me"

"What's your name private!?"

"What a cheesy ending!"


  • Matt's grave inscription is a homage to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," in which a French person insults the main characters by saying: "I fart in your general direction!"
  • It is unknown if Zombeh Matt burned in daylight, as he was seen at sunrise saying "Boogity boogity brains!"
  • Zombeh Matt's skin started out as a normal green colour in Zombeh Attack 1 and 2, but changes to a pale light grey colour in the 3rd installment. This is likely because he was sucked into the fake necronomicon.
