Daphnes are enemies seen in the Kid Icarus series. They are green plant monsters corrupted by Medusa's evil influence.
Daphnes were docile plant creatures that lived in the Palace in the Sky before Medusa invaded and turned them evil. They prefer to ambush Pit in groups of four.
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Daphnes are also in the long-awaited sequel, Kid Icarus: Uprising. They fire projectiles at Pit when opening their bud.
