Dolphin Rider Zombie Strategy
Dolphin Rider Zombies work much like Pole Vaulting Zombies, except they move faster while on the Dolphin and can do more damage to the player’s plants if you do not protect them.
The best defense against a Dolphin Rider is planting a Tall-Nut on a Lily Pad to block them out. Planting a Lily Pad in the 2nd or 3rd column will cause the Dolphin Rider to jump over the Lily Pad and lose it’s Dolphin.
Tangle Kelp are also effective at taking them out.
