Elves are a race in 8-Bit Theater. They are incredibly egotistical, and their personality can be summed up using the following quote.
- "Man, I don't have time for this. I'm a busy elf. I've got places to go, people to act superior to and elder-than-thou attitudes to express."
- "Oh, I know! People seem to think it's easy to perpetuate these Tolkien-esque stereotypes of haughty elves. In reality, it's very hard work."
- "Even if it does come quite naturally."
- "Which it certainly does!"
A little more is revealed in the National Elven Anthem. When Drizz'l confronts Thief, Thief claims that there is a line about that in their anthem "We're a race of total Bastards." Drizzl'l acusses the Elves of stealing the song from them, to which Thief replies that he is from a race of total bastards.
