Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

Brocken is the German word for giant or monster. Bär is the German word for bear.

True, but not completly - "Brocken" is not the word for giant or monter - it describes a huge "something". Not meaning monster by default.

For example: "Goldbrocken" - a HUGE piece of Gold.

But - and I think thats the meaning here - it is also the name of a german mountain.

And also if you crush a building, all that remains are a lot of 'brocken'.

I have a gamer friend I named the "Bully Bear" and this fits him perfectly. Brockenbar is now the Bully Bear in my game (and he went 2-0 in his 1st appearance!).
