This article is about the family of elemental enemies from EBF4 and EBF5. For the ghost-like enemy with Auto-Revive, see Spirit.
Sprites appear as vaguely humanoid figures with large heads, short arms, and no apparent feet (making them resemble a young girl in a dress). They have simple faces, with two blank white eyes and a small mouth that only appears when performing certain attacks or taking a strong blow. Their exact appearances vary, but they always have details resembling the element they wield in battle, making it possible that their origins or biology are similar to Elementals.
Sprites are usually found in environments suiting their elemental affinity, with some overlap depending on the area (e.g. the icy caves of the Crystal Caverns have both Ice Sprites and Rock Sprites).
In battle, Sprites can headbutt players, but they usually favor a variety of elemental spells. They often serve as low to mid-tier foes, casting offensive magic and inflicting status buffs on themselves or status ailments on their foes. As such, Syphon is an effective means of limiting their threat level.
All Sprites can absorb damage from the element they represent (200% resistance), but have a 50% weakness to Dark and Poison (both the element and the status effect).
