MQ Red Cap Field

Red Cap is an enemy type from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Red Caps are elf-like creatures that, as their name suggests, wear red caps. They first appear in the Fireburg region of the world and use physical attacks, but they are no threat as they have lower HP compared to other enemies of the region.

BattleEdit

The creatures have two phases. The first phase has them wearing a cap and adopting a fighting pose, while the second phase has the cap removed, exposing a Mohawk as well as having a cross bandage on the forehead.

Etymology Edit

A Red Cap or Redcap, also known as a powrie or dunter, is a type of imaginary malevolent murderous dwarf, goblin, elf or fairy found in Border Folklore. They are said to inhabit ruined castles found along the border between England and Scotland. Redcaps murder travelers who stray into their homes and dye their hats with their victims' blood (from which they get their name). Redcaps must kill regularly, for if the blood staining their hats dries out, they die. Outrunning a redcap is supposedly impossible; the only way to escape one is to quote a passage from the Bible. They lose a tooth on hearing it, which they leave behind.
