YOU CANNOT GO ANY FURTHER! YOU CANNOT TAKE MY CRYSTAL! YOU CANNOT USE METALLIC WEAPONS! YOU CANNOT DEFEAT ME!
—Dark Elf

The Dark Elf is a character and boss in Final Fantasy IV. He has stolen a Crystal from Troia.

StoryEdit

Final Fantasy IVEdit

FF4 PSP Dark Elf Field
The Dark Elf stole the Crystal from Troia, and took it into his lair in the Lodestone Cavern. Cecil's party decide to return it, so they can trade it to Golbez. The cavern has a powerful magnetic field inside - meaning no metal equipment can be used.

The party make it to the cave, but the power of the Dark Elf is monstrous. Edward uses his harp through the Whisperweed to disband the magnetic field and give the party a chance to equip their weapons and fight back.

In the SNES version, the Dark Elf has an odd speech pattern that causes him to speak in a repetitive manner and shout all his dialogue. In the J2e retranslation, the Dark Elf still shouts, and also speaks in broken English. The Advance version has slightly less strange mannerisms, but still tends to emphasize random parts of sentences (e.g. "I comMEND you for your efFORts"). By the Nintendo DS version, the Dark Elf speaks in a normal fashion.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

The spirit of the Dark Elf still resides in the Crystal Chamber of the Lodestone Cavern. It attacks Palom and Leonora when they enter the chamber to escape the Mysterious Girl. They engage in a fight. When he transforms into a dragon, he resists their magic. The Mysterious Girl then enters the room and destroys him with the Eidolon, Shiva.
