Monster Information

"I only listen to you, my master. I must destroy the whole base!"

D.A.V.E. is the last monster to be unlocked in the Monster Locker. Its high health makes it a good tank. D.A.V.E. also has a high attack, but the usefulness of his attack is migitated by D.A.V.E.'s slow speed and the fact that it targets anything, making it go through a Never Ending chain of Horror. (A Never Ending Chain of Horror is when buildings like the General Store or Radio Tower are placed in a circle around your yard to force monsters that target anything to go around in a circle, keeping the monsters from attacking your actual Storage Silos or Defensive Buildings.) D.A.V.E. also takes the longest time to make out of all the monsters, and also costs the most Goo . D.A.V.E. takes the second-most spacing in the Housing, at 160. Overall, D.A.V.E. is a great monster that is a perfect addition to your monster army.
