He's developed a taste for Zombie Heroes.
With its ability to half the zombie hero's health upon being played, it is recommended to play this plant when the zombie hero has a health advantage over you, but keep in mind that the attack can still be blocked.
This card shines against boss battles in the plant missions, as some boss battles give the zombie hero extra health at the start, making Dandy Lion King's effect stronger and allowing the player to defeat the boss faster.
Probably due to its raw stats, which is quite low for such a 6-sun plant, this card is countered by itself later on, or when you are winning. However, it is still useful to use this to do damage to the zombie hero, due to its somewhat high strength points.
Consider avoiding playing Dandy Lion King when your opponent is at least three bars away from a Super-Block. As mentioned before, Dandy Lion King's ability is treated as damage, so your opponent has the chance to block Dandy Lion King's ability, denying its impact on your opponent's health and making it a complete waste. However, if you think it is necessary, you can play Dandy Lion King to let your opponent do a Super-Block (and empty their Super-Block Meter) in order for your other plants to do heavy damage and finish your opponent off quickly.
If your opponent has played Wannabe Hero, a good tactic is to bounce Wannabe Hero and then play Dandy Lion King to significantly lower Wannabe Hero's health when it is played again. However, this can only normally be performed by Nightcap. Besides, watch out for Medic or Heroic Health that may follow afterwards.
Since this is a flower plant, as Solar Flare, you can combine this with Briar Rose to destroy high health zombies like Jester by playing Dandy Lion King in the lane they occupy. It also has synergy with Power Flower and thus will allow Solar Flare to recover more health.
While its stats are not that great for a 6-sun plant, Dandy Lion King makes up for it by taking away a large chunk of health from you. Whenever this plant is in play, avoid bouncing it whatsoever, as this will only benefit the plant hero to play it again and deal heavy damage to the zombie hero. Try to destroy it with instant-kill tricks such as Locust Swarm or Rocket Science.
