* InstantDeathRadius: Death in the 20g14 remake and Slayer Edition has been changed into an invulnerable OneHitKill creature. Not even magic can banish it unlike previous games. Death only appears on certain stages of Campaign and every 6th floor of Endless, which pursues the players until it has made a kill (or after some time), and then comes back again later.
