Suddenly one of them started coughing and transforms into a Zomberry. Zomberries start appearing all around him and begin to attack him. A helicopter appears above them and while describing the situation to the remaining non-Zomberry citizens, mentions that the Zomberries were afraid of light. The helicopter flashes a spotlight onto Joe, warding off the Zomberries. Joe then escaped to the construction site and, seeing how the "apocalypse" had arrived, and he fulfills his promise by eating the fruit in his lunchbox, transforming him into a Zomberry like the other citizens.
Role in Zomberry Island
In Zomberry Island, Joe first appears as a Zomberry (zombie) on the building that the construction workers were at first working on. He became a Zomberry because he told Elaine that the only reason he'd eat fruit was if the apocalypse came. And when the zombie outbreak started, he decided to eat fruit, and he unknowingly ate blueberries, which turned him into a Zomberry. When you activate the crane you must pick the beam he's on up to carry him and the bricks blocking your way up, and then you can rummage through his lunchbox. He later chases Samuel Brains.
