Daphnes are enemies from the original Kid Icarus and Kid Icarus: Uprising. In the original game, they are depicted as once-docile flowers that were corrupted by a dark spirit, and group in four to attack. They resemble flowers with a face and can attack by releasing flower-like projectiles that can detonate.
Daphnes also appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as Smash Run enemies. Like in their series of origin, they attack by releasing two projectiles that detonate after a while, dealing high knockback to the player.
