Electric Slide is very good at taking space from the enemy and making space for your team: Her Funky Bouncer is great for clearing objectives and forcing attacking enemies away, disrupting their attack, and her Disco Tornado is amazing at forcing plants out of an objective or risk the huge damage that the Disco Tornado can bring. While she is classed under PvZ BfN Attack Class Icon.png Attack, she is very effective at playing offensively on defense. By flanking behind the attacking plants, she can harass the enemies back line with her arcing electric Boogie Bolts and her Disco Tornado, which can force plants to break off their attack and regroup, possibly saving an objective. When plants start to notice her and counterattack, her Outta Fight! is great for making a clean escape and coming back for another go.

In Turf Takeover, Electric Slide can be very effective at defending payloads. As most plants will bunch up together and try to hitch a ride on the payload, Electric Slide's Boogie Bolt can vanquish many of them at once. As an alternative, Disco Tornado can be used to easily destroy many of them, or Funky Bouncer can be used to get the plants away from the payload.

Electric Slide's weakness, however, is one-on-one combat. Her Boogie Bolt is effective against groups, because if you hit one enemy, you hit them all. When facing a single enemy, however, you will have to rely on your shots hitting their target to do any damage. You may find that you will have to get up really close to do any damage, especially against smaller targets like Night Cap and Acorn. However, this just means that they can hit you more easily. Disco Tornado is relatively useless against single enemies as they can easily escape, or the Tornado may not even hit them. Funky Bouncer should only be used if the situation is dire and you reach low health; as should Outta Fight!, but because you may be the plant's only target, they could easily follow you and attack you once the timer ends.


To beat an Electric Slide, try to hop around and make yourself a difficult target so they can't hit you. Just make sure that your shots land; otherwise, the fight could go on for a long time and you could easily slip up. For larger targets like Citron and Snapdragon, try a hit-and-run strategy so you can damage the Electric Slide without it damaging you.
