Zom-Zom the Far-Out (pronounced "zoom zoom") is a character you encounter multiple times in the story mode of LittleBigPlanet 3. He runs a costume shop and has a strong French accent. If you purchase five costumes from any Zom Zom's store in any theme, you'll get a special item known as the Illuminator.

Each of the three stores initially carries 100 Collectabells worth of merchandise.


LittleBigPlanet 3

Zom Zom first appears in Manglewood, trying to lure Sackboy to come and check out his shop. Along with that, he also displays some of his magic skills by popping out from a floating star. He never does this again, however, as he only appears in his shop in The Ziggurat and Bunkum Lagoon. He does not play any part in the main story.



Zom Zom appears to have an Eight Ball for a head, tilted sideways with dots in the eight holes for eyes. He wears a turban with a plastic jewel on it, with a clothes pin through it.


Zom Zom is a minor character and through all his appearances just speaks about his shop. However, within his speech, certain traits can be taken indirectly. Such traits are greed, since once you buy all clothes from a shop is reaction is to celebrate that his pockets are full of Collectibells, and that he is quite persuasive, constantly pointing out his designs, with a bit of vanity.
