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 and 2. It has the Amphibious and Hunt traits, and does not have any abilities. Its 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 (also known as corn) and an actual dog.
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 can be treated as a Fire Peashooter, but one that can track down zombies and does not synergies with any tribes. It is advised to use stat-boosting tricks on it as it can be destroyed easily upon being attacked by a zombie during combat. But with a 3 base, it is immune to Rocket Science and Rolling Stone. Overall, it is a good plant to guard against most threats such as Beam Me Up.
Take note that it goes to the zombie's lane when that zombie is being played, which prevents threatening zombies like Copter Commando from directly hitting the plant hero during the trick phrase, so do not expect it to attack the zombie hero that often. But it can be a counter to Teleport or Teleportation Zombie as Corn Dog can block a powerful attack, excluding a zombie with Frenzy or an ability that destroy plants like Zombot 1000.
It may not be best to rely on Corn Dog as the only Amphibious defense. Your opponent can take advantage of its Hunt trait, and first place an Amphibious zombie on the water lane, then place another zombie on land to move it, leaving the water 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.
You also want to be warned that if you play multiple zombies with one at least have 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.
