I can't help but wondering if they're going to end up fighting that 'Roguelike Mantrap' in the future...

Nah, it probably gets killed by this shopkeeper here. No way it'll turn up again and again as a recurring side plot element later.
VaultBoy2001 (Guest) edit delete reply
What? It has to be a recurring element! Even if they get to Olmec, that mantrap should show up...

Gets killed by this shopkeeper you said.
Won't be a recurring element you said.
:P

Does this shopkeeper have a name? I am adding a character list to my kills list project and I don't remember them encountering this shopkeeper again unless it is Smithy.

Nope, this shopkeeper is non-specific. This is after the black market was robbed, so it could be just about anybody.
Enderlucario edit delete reply
Ok. Thanks. It actually looked very close to a shopkeeper in the Ice Caves in text bubble color so I thought it might be him. But this is pretty far from his shop. This series is so good. It never gets stale.

I think the only shoppy I gave a different speech bubble color is Smithy, and only because he talks directly to Terry (it'd be confusing if they matched). I considered making them all look slightly different, but just ended up giving them all wildly different personalities.
Enderlucario edit delete reply
I saved the different colors as they looked different at the time but comparing them now yeah Smithy is the only different one.

I made it to the end and unless I missed someone somewhere. Counting named characters as their own entity. I counted 49 characters. Just one shy of that beautiful round 50.

I'm surprised there are even that many.
Enderlucario edit delete reply
Well I was also counting things that might not even technically be a "character" like the silhouette in the rope explanation comic and ST in the Ice Caves.

P.S. I don't know if these count as spoilers but it is hard trying to talk about someone/something that appears later in the comic without saying their name.

Heheh, yeah. You could probably leave out Springtrap and the example silhouette. Though appear they did, they weren't physically there. Also, all mummies are Tomb Lords, so there's no need to distinguish the two.

That brings the count down to...46. What a dissatisfying number! XD
Enderlucario edit delete reply
Ok I will make a note of them not being real characters. Also I didin't know that thing about the Mummy. Since Roc said "So they killed the Tomb Lord..." I assumed there was only one.

Only one can spawn per floor*, but it's not a unique enemy.

*A mysterious bug can allow multiple to spawn in the CoG.
Enderlucario edit delete reply
I guess they changed that in the remake. I will fix that in the character list.

P.S. I have Spelunky Classic but the majority of my knowledge comes from HD so that s probably the reason I don't know some of this stuff.
