Rotting tree stumps, animated by forest fairies, that can be randomly encountered in the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game Dragon Warrior IV. These plants have an undying hatred for human beings and will attack them on sight--they remember all too well that it was man who cut them down. After defeating one of these fiends, an adventurer may find that the Dark Doriard's remains have transformed into a 'Wooden Hat' that can be used as a helmet to protect one's head. Dark Doriards are more dangerous than their weaker cousins, the Demon Stumps.
