Spriggan is an enemy in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- that poses little threat due to its low Vitality and HP. It absorbs Fire-elemental attacks. Best way to deal damage is by using sword attacks or command materia.
Spriggans are legendary creatures known from Cornish faery lore. They were depicted as grotesquely ugly, and were said to be found at old ruins and barrows guarding buried treasure and generally acting as fairy bodyguards.
