Historical Information

The croque-mitaine, the "mitten-biter", is a well known figure in French folklore, an embodiment of terror that is often seen as the French equivalent of the bogeyman. Because of its nature as being a tool for parents to make their children behave, the croque-mitaine has no definate form, oftentimes being described differently from household to household, or just left to the children's imaginations to conjure up on their own.

Well, he attacks incredibly fast, each hit for 300+ as well as a high high triple attack. Oh yeah, and he spams silence-ga. Great.
