The Dark Elves are minor antagonists in the 2015 American comedy-horror film Krampus.
Before Aunt Dorothy can kill Der Klown, a group of demonic elves break into the house, put out the fire, and kidnap several family members.
The Dark Elves are diminutive humanoid figures with tattered clothing, leather belts and boots, and wooden pagan masks covering their faces. These masks vary in style from plague doctor-like beaks, porcelain faces, and devil-like carvings.
Powers and Abilities
The Dark Elves possess the following powers and abilities:
- Tool usage
- Human intelligence
All of the elves (but one) survives to the end of the film. One of them is pushed off the snow plow when it attacks Max, where it is eaten by the Snow Beast.
- The elves' backstories reportedly involve them originally working for Santa before defecting and aligning themselves with Krampus.
