||ヒゲドワッフ (Hige dowaffu, lit. Bearded Dwarf)
DaggyDwarf is an enemy appearing in Chrono Cross. DaggyDwarves are short seed-shaped humanoids that wear huge helmets and wield shovels similar to the other members of their race. Of the three Dwarven enemies encountered, DaggyDwarves have the lowest number of Hit Points. DaggyDwarves 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, DaggyDwarves appear alongside a Dwarves, three DaffyDwarves, 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.
Led by the Dwarf Chieftain, these Dwarves fight alongside their usual comrades, the Dwarves and DaffyDwarves. 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. Accompanying this machine are two Dwarves. The player should defeat them first, then focus on the tank, to avoid the added agitation of healing after the Dwarves cast Hi-HoChorus.
In the English language, Dag means to coat with manure. This may denote the implied ludicrousness of these enemies.
