Dolphinado is a super-rare zombie superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky class. It costs 1BrainPvZH to play, and its ability gives the Bounce effect to a random plant. Its plant counterpart is Whirlwind.

Origins

It is based on a tornado, a violently rotating column of air that spins while in contact with both the surface of the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud, and a dolphin, an aquatic mammal within the order Cetacea.

Its name is a portmanteau of the words "dolphin", referring to the animals in the tornado, and "tornado", the natural phenomenon it is based on. It may also be a parody and a reference to the 2013 movie "Sharknado". Coincidentally, both names are a combination of an aquatic animal and tornado.

Strategies

With

As with Whirlwind, use this trick to bounce plants with very high stats to buy yourself some time or land a hit on the plant hero but be warned, it bounces a random plant, so it may not be the plant you desire that will be bounced. Try to use this when there is only one strong plant on the field, so you can guarantee to Bounce that plant, effectively making this card a cheaper version of Backyard Bounce. It is not the best or most reliable trick, but very good for getting rid of heavily boosted up plants, PvZH Armored IconArmored plants and more, so try using this trick when someone has plants with high stats on the field.

Keep in mind that Dolphinado is also a pet card, which lets it synergize with Zookeeper and Cat Lady, as they activate their abilities when this is played. However, this combo can only be accessed with Brain Freeze.

Against

As this trick is usually used to bounce plants with high stats or boosted plants, the opponent will probably use this trick when a single powerful plant is on the lawn to stall time. If you suspect this card being played while you have such a plant on the field, try to fill it with cheap plants such as Shroom for Two, as there will then be a higher chance that the powerful plant will not be bounced, meaning there will also be a higher chance of wasting the superpower.

Be careful if Zookeeper and Cat Lady are on the field (if you are facing Brain Freeze) as well, as they will get boosted for a cheap price if this trick is played along with one of your plants being bounced.

Trivia

  • The pink dolphin in the tornado could be based on the Amazon river dolphin, which is the largest species of river dolphin.
  • Its description is either a reference to weather forecasts, or the movie Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
