The dolphin is also a Zombie.
Dolphin Rider is only an average zombie, but his main use is to dish out some good damage on the aquatic lane, which can be dangerous if your opponent does not have any Amphibious plants. While he will be targeted easily if you are against such opponents, you can improve his survivability by playing stat-boosting cards (which the Beastly class has plenty of) so that it doesn't go down easily. Dolphin Rider can also be used in pet decks with Zookeeper and Cat Lady due to his tribe.
Dolphin Rider can easily chip away at your health, which can be troublesome. Fortunately, Dolphin Rider is easy to dispatch due to his low health. You could play Amphibious plants to fight Dolphin Rider, although all of them, excluding Marine Bean, won't be able to survive his attack unless boosted. But tricks and abilities, such as Whack-a-Zombie, Banana Bomb, and Shelf Mushroom, work too, so you aren't in too much trouble even if you don't have the former.
