Dwarves are a race in the manga Delicious in Dungeon.

Appearance and Biology[edit | edit source]

Dwarves tend to be short and stocky, and are fairly strong, able to wield heavy swords and shields with ease. However, they get exhausted quickly.[1] They are able to see in the dark[2] and have extremely sensitive semicircular canals in their ears, which cause them to feel sick after events such as teleportation.[3][4]

Dwarves are one of the longer-lived races, alongside elves, living approximately 2.5 times longer than tall-men.[5] They generally have no affinity with magic and can feel ill if it is used on them, having the lowest magical energy limit of all the races.[6]

Most of them apparently have a good sense of direction, but not all.[7]

Culture[edit | edit source]

In general, it can be said that they place a great deal of importance on metalworking and the like (though some, such as Senshi, do not).[8][9]

Adventuring dwarves seem to prefer using light armor, possibly due to their low stamina.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Some time in the past, the dwarves and elves were at war, with each side creating more and more advanced technology, culminating in a great disaster. Both the dwarves and the elves were afraid to have a repeat of this mistake, so any relics left behind after the war found by other races are quickly confiscated.[10]

The Island is a remnant of one such war, which had split the island in two halves, east and west. The dwarves who fought in this war used underground tunnels to hide, and after the war continued their tunneling, eventually coming across the dungeon.[11] Much of the lower levels of the dungeons were built using ancient dwarven ruins - the sixth level of waterway networks was built from old mining tunnels[12] and a cistern from one of their strongholds[13], with one of their defensive points at the entrance to the deepest part of the dungeon[10] leading onto a city hewn from a cliff face.[14]
