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 3/2. It has the Amphibious and Hunt traits and does not have any abilities. Its closest 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 (Zea mays), also known as corn, and a dog (Canis lupus familiaris), a subspecies of the wolf.
Its description references the fact that it is a vegetable dog. It is also based on the common 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 has the same stats as a Fire Peashooter, but it can track down zombies and can go even on aquatic lanes. As such, is a good counter to Teleport, Teleportation Zombie, Beam Me Up, and Hail-a-Copter, since it prevents the zombie played from hitting you by going in front of it.
Since Corn Dog has low health and will always be confronted with a zombie unless none are played, it will not last very long, often getting destroyed on the same turn it is played. Another thing to note is that despite its Amphibious trait, Corn Dog is a poor choice for defending the aquatic lane. Your opponent can easily take advantage of its Hunt trait, first playing an Amphibious zombie on the aquatic lane and then playing another zombie on any other lane to move it, leaving the aquatic lane open for the Amphibious zombie.
Use tricks like Beam Me Up to destroy it on the same turn or just play a zombie to drag it out of the aquatic lane. If not, tricks like Bungee Plumber can easily do the job due to its low health. Try to take it out or else it will mess up your strategies.
If you play multiple zombies with at least one with 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.
