Corn Dog is an event plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Guardian class. It costs 2 to play, and has 3/2. It has the Amphibious and Hunt traits and does not have any abilities. Its closest zombie counterpart is Dog Walker.
Its name is based on a corn dog, an American snack consisting of a sausage coated in a thick layer of cornmeal batter on a stick. However, Corn Dog's design is a literal take on its name, being a combination of an ear of maize (Zea mays), also known as corn; and an actual dog (Canis lupus familiaris).
Its description references the fact that it is a vegetable dog. It also references the quote "Who's a good dog? You are! Yes, you are!" that people say to their pet dog if it is behaving well.

"Who's a good vegetable? You are! Yes, you are!"
Corn Dog is also a good counter to Teleport, Teleportation Zombie, Beam Me Up, and Hail-a-Copter, since it prevents the zombie from hitting you unless that zombie has the Frenzy trait and can survive its attack, or Corn Dog gets destroyed by a damaging or destroying ability such as Foot Soldier Zombie's.
Since Corn Dog has low health, and will always be confronted with a zombie unless none are played that turn due to its Hunt trait, it will not last very long, often getting destroyed on the same turn it is played. It is advised to play stat-boosting cards on it if you want to keep it alive for longer.
Another thing to note is that despite its Amphibious trait, Corn Dog is a poor choice for defending the aquatic lane. Your opponent can easily take advantage of its Hunt trait, and first play an Amphibious zombie on the aquatic lane, then play another zombie on land to move it, leaving the aquatic lane open to hit the hero.
Despite it having the Amphibious trait, you do not need an Amphibious zombie to counter it.
Use tricks like Beam Me Up to destroy it on the same turn or just play a zombie to drag it off to the ground. If not, tricks like Bungee Plumber can help counter its low health easily. Try to take it out or else it will mess up your strategies.
If you play multiple zombies with at least one with the Gravestone trait, Corn Dog will move to that zombie with the Gravestone trait as when a zombie is revealed, it is the same as playing a zombie. If you are playing multiple zombies with the Gravestone trait, Corn Dog will move to the zombie that is revealed last.
- Even though its description calls it a vegetable, corn is classified as a cereal grain and a fruit.
- It is currently the only plant with the Hunt trait.
