* BunnyEarsLawyer: They're all lunatics, yes. However, they are capable of amazing feats (see VideoGame/{{Towersoared}}) and strong enough dwarves can fight an EldritchAbomination to a standstill.

** Hilariously, even super-{{Badass}} legendary military dwarves will flee from a harmless wild animal [[LawfulStupid as long as they are not on duty]].

* [[OneManArmy One Dwarf Army]]: Killed 20 [[EldritchAbomination Forgotten Beasts]] solo, and alternate-reality testing proved that he could single-handedly wipe Towersoared off the map.

* {{Badass}}: Even for a demon.



* BadAss: Actually survived after retiring as ruler of the fort, then beat up a baby, a cow and an elite marksdwarf. Also tried to drink lava a few times.



* BadAss: When Sankis trapped him in a room with an angry [[TheUsualAdversaries elephant]], [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome he wrestled it (receiving only an injured leg), then hobbled after it and sent it into a trap.]] [[XanatosGambit However, Sankis intended for him to win.]]
* [[HangingJudge Hammering Judge]]: Views at least three people in Boatmurdered as being "in desperate need of a hammer to the face".

* BadAss: Not only did he manage to avoid becoming a part of the insanity/tantrum spiral that killed everyone else, but he survived the entire Boatmurdered saga prior to that and even escaped the place alive. And in the words of the player, "Also he wears plate mail over chainmail and uses 2 swords."
* DualWielding: See above.

* {{Badass}}: The most powerful creature in the vanilla game, not counting procedurally generated creatures and adamantine-clad legendary military dwarves. Dragons can melt them via dragonfire, but not before the colossus has laid a few solid punches on the dragon, possibly crippling or killing it.



* {{Badass}}: They can fight ''cave dragons'' to a standstill. Cave dragons which are far more skilled and more than 30 times bigger than them. Same with every other LightningBruiser creature. Hell, it could fight with any megabeast except the Bronze Colossus and dominate the fight! They can also take on a single fully armed and armored legendary warrior dwarf and render them unable to battle, a feat that no other standard creature in the game can do with certitude.



* {{Badass}}: Their venom can kill anything in the game with a nervous system. Even a dragon. They can also shoot crossbows and wield weapons.



* {{Badass}}: In the .34 version, despite being a sessile sponge.



* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Very possible, with sufficiently {{Badass}} soldiers. Or simply cunning, deadly traps.

* TantrumThrowing: Considered the de-facto dwarven reaction to prolonged unhappiness, and frequently a catalyst for DisasterDominoes. [=DF2014=] mitigated this significantly by reworking the happiness system and by introducing two different reactions to stress depending on a dwarf's personality. That said, a tantrim spiral is still possible.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: But this is due to a bug and some tag not working, considering that Toady generally [[ShownTheirWork shows his work a lot]]. Strangely, they can also become enraged or unconscious, despite not having a nervous system.

* GlassCannon: The addition of pulping has rendered them much easier to damage, but their push attacks are still bizarrely powerful.
* MightyGlacier: In .34, they were invulnerable to damage due to having no body parts or blood. Their only mode of attack is pushing things, but their size means that said push can ''break your skull''.



* StoneWall: In .34, they were invulnerable to damage due to having no body parts or blood. Their only mode of attack is pushing things (but then again, it can do that and ''break your skull''...)

to:

* {{Curse}}: Similar CursedWithAwesome: Are created by curses from gods, similar to werebeasts.werebeasts but it's not uncommon to find players poisoning their fortresses water supply with vampire blood in order to turn all their dwarves into vampires.
* DayWalkingVampire: Aren't affected by sunlight.

* EqualOpportunityEvil: Due to their child-snatching, a goblin settlement can often have as many humans, dwarves, and elves as goblins. Not to mention trolls as "pets" and their [[TheLegionsOfHell more exotic]] rulers they often have. Prior to [=DF2014=], they were the most multi-culteral of the main races, before other entities (and later on, animal-people) could move to other civilizations.
