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.
Encountered as a boss in Hydra Marshes, DaffyDwarves appear alongside
three Dwarves, and the
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.
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.
