King Cake was the first ever boss to be added into R2D. While meant for the Event M8, he returned for Halloween Event 2014 and Christmas Event 2014. King Cake is a giant piece of chocolate cake with a cherry on top, which also sits a crown. His arena is in the sky.

It is said that master PlaceRebuilder bestowed upon his people the blessing of Cake, to aid them in their eternal struggle against the zombie hordes. When the word "cake" was uttered, a slice of Cake would fall from the heavens and heal those who took a bite from its sacred bread. King Cake soon took notice that his subjects were disappearing one by one, which confused him. Seeking answers, he went to PlaceRebuilder. Place explained that his people needed the power of the Cake in order to prevail over the ever-powerful growing Infected hordes. King Cake grew enraged, warning that he would one day wreak havoc on the mortals for eating his people. That day has come. Without consulting PlaceRebuilder, King Cake started transporting survivors to his air palace in order to eliminate them. Unable to stop this madness PlaceRebuilder utterd a secret curse, effectivly binding King Cake for a time. He was only granted to return during special celebration. Yet to this day he stands undefeated in his skykingdom, awaiting his furious and vicious return.


King Cake's throne room appears to be levitating in the sky, held up by clouds. Players spawn in front of a heavenly gold staircase. After walking up it and going through the gates, King Cake himself can be seen. He temporarily sits on a platform which has an ammo table in front of it. To the sides are golden pillars which can be used to kite his minions among other things. To the side is a cage which contains all of the dead players and zombies.
