Flamenco Zombie is a basic common zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Crazy class. he costs 5 to play, and has 3/2. He does not have any traits, and his ability instantly does 2 damage to the plant hero for every dancing zombie on the field, including him, when he is played. His plant counterpart is Sonic Bloom.
This zombie is based on Flamenco, an art form known to the Spanish regions. It includes dancing, singing, guitar playing, etc.

This zombie alone is a bit poor for his brain cost. If the player wants to get the most out of using this zombie, the player should have many dancing zombies on the field. However, this zombie is a dancing zombie too, meaning that he can still activate his ability by himself. You can play him after playing Disco-Tron 3000 to do up to 8 damage to the plant hero, as Disco-Tron 3000 will make a Disco Zombie, which in turn will make a Backup Dancer.
Technically though, it is possible to do 10 damage at once with Flamenco Zombie. For now, only Electric Boogaloo can pull it off normally, as he has access to Synchronized Swimmer, the only Amphibious dancing zombie so far. Other heroes can also do it, but not without help from Mixed-Up Gravedigger. Due to the random nature of Mixed-Up Gravedigger's ability, they have to rely on luck to see if a dancing zombie ends up in the aquatic lane, after which they can let Mixed-Up Gravedigger and the Amphibious zombie be destroyed before playing another dancing zombie and then Flamenco Zombie.
It is best avoided to play this zombie when your opponent is a few bars away from a block. This makes it a risky move, as you could play Flamenco Zombie to activate the block and do nothing with it.
If you are playing as Impfinity, you can use In-Crypted, Firefighter or Mixed-Up Gravedigger to reactivate Flamenco Zombie's ability. Professor Brainstorm can also use Flamenco Zombie with Teleport to land a surprise attack on his opponent.
This zombie synergies well with both Binary Stars and Disco-Naut, not just because of their dancing tribe, but also because of their abilities. Binary Stars causes him to do twice the damage, while Disco-Naut ensures that the damage he does will not charge the Super-Block Meter.
The zombie himself is pretty easy to destroy, but there's nothing you can do about his ability except count on luck and block him. Just be aware and try to avoid keeping dancing zombies alive. However, if you have no more blocks left, there is not much you can do to prevent him from doing damage with his ability, so you might as well finish the game and destroy all of your opponent's dancing zombies before this can be played.
The first thing you need to be aware is when your opponent summons dancing zombies. Try to kill most of the dancing zombies so the Flamenco Zombie won't deal too much damage. This is more so with Disco-Naut and Binary Stars due to their abilities.
Unless he is blocking your plants from finishing off your opponent, or you need to stall for time, do not Bounce this zombie unless you also take care of the other dancing zombies, as he can be replayed to do damage to you again.

- The Hokey Pokey mentioned in the description is a reference to the Vasebreaker level of the same name.
