  • None - familiar has no weaknesses.


  • Familiar of the month for December, 2004.
  • The elf does (X+4)/2 to X+4 in damage, where X is the weight of the familiar.
  • The Crimbo Elf only tries to attack 33% of the time (similar to the elemental fairies), but even then, is only successful 10*ceiling(wt/6)+30% of the time (similar, but slightly better, than the Lime).


  • The haiku for this familiar ends with a holiday version of a the cowboy exclamation "yippe-io-ki-ay". Bruce Willis's character, John McClane, in the 1988 movie Die Hard, popularized this saying, adding an infamous expletive to it.
  • The dental pliers are a reference to the claymation Christmas special Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, whose sidekick was an elf who wanted to be a dentist and saved the day with a pair of pliers.
  • The miniature gravy-covered maypole text is a reference to the haunting melody sung by the elves in The Nightmare Before Christmas.
