||ノッポドワッフ (Noppo dowaffu, lit. Tall Dwarf)
DaffyDwarf is an enemy appearing in Chrono Cross. DaffyDwarves are short seed-shaped humanoids that wear huge helmets and wield shovels, similar to the other members of their race. DaffyDwarves can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg.
Battle and Strategy
Encountered as a boss in Hydra Marshes, DaffyDwarves appear alongside two DaggyDwarves, three Dwarves, and the Dwarf Chieftain. It is advised to take out at least one DaffyDwarf to prevent the casting of Hi-HoWarCry, a strong Yellow Element. While Dwarves typically do not strike enemies with their physical weapons, they do band together with other dwarves to cast Hi-HoChorus which moderately damages all party members. Weakening the dwarves with physical attacks and using NeoFio's PopPopPop should end the battle quite quickly.
Water Dragon Isle
Led by the Dwarf Chieftain, these Dwarves fight alongside their usual comrades, the Dwarves and DaggyDwarves. Several batches are encountered in both the main area of Water Dragon Isle, as well as the cave within. Together, they have decided to pillage the Fairy colony there and usurp their leader, Rosetta. The Chieftain claims this tactic of savagry was taught to the Dwarves by Serge, who slays the last remaining Hydra in Hydra Marshes, which whom these creatures deify. When Serge battles his way through these infantrymen, he encounters the Hi Ho Tank, a militaristic vehicle created by the Dwarves to ensure their victory against the fairies.
The word Daffy, in English, denotes foolish silliness or ludicrousness to the point of craziness. Daffy is noticeably one way to define the way these creatures act.
