Dirge is a large, dangerous colossi thathad to go against. The giant worm is able to swim through sand much like can, only faster and a lot more durable against many of Toph's attempts to hurt him. Most of the time he's actually traveling around blind, keeping his eyes tightly shut unless he's chasing something as fast as he is.
He first appears in the cavern when Toph walks out into his territory. He shows off his strength by jumping up out of the sand, right over her, nearly crushing her with his tail. At first he was chasing Toph but after a sudden dash, he is soon chasinginstead. During the fight though he makes the mistake of opening his eyes. He gets blinded by Toube and Toph's strategy and is soon killed after ramming the wall.
