** Commander Video from ''VideoGame/BitTrip''. Kind of ironic considering he was the first unlock in ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]'' too. Has a floatier jump and a huge wide projectile.

Released by Nicalis on the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U in June 2014, ''1001 Spikes'' (Or, its full title, ''[[OverlyLongTitle Aban Hawkins and the 1001 Spikes: The Temple of the Dead Mourns the Living]]'') is the... ''touching'' story of a Aban Hawkins, a perpetually furious archeologist put against the sort of odds that make Franchise/IndianaJones' escapades look like a pleasant stroll to the museum. The hotheaded protagonist is stuck somewhere between being a WellDoneSonGuy and just wanting to [[ArchnemesisDad punch him in the face]], to the point where he is instantaneously spurred into action when he learns of his father's demise and subsquently finds a letter that both mocks him and challenges him to search the lost ruins of Ukampa.

Seen as the twisted lovechild of ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]'' and ''IWannaBeTheGuy'', 1001 Spikes has a title that ''understates'' the sheer level of tricks and traps laying before you, giving you 1001 lives to get through them all. The difficulty is somewhere in between the two, combining some trial and error gaming with challenges that require platforming skill as opposed to purely memorisation.

Compare with ''IWannaBeTheGuy'' and ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]''.

* BraggingRightsReward: [[CaveStory Curly Brace]] is arguably one of the most useful characters in the game due to her extreme air mobility. However, unlocking her requires ''all thirty'' golden skulls, which are hidden at best and controller-snappingly frustrating to get at worst (or both), [[CharacterSelectForcing and can only be obtained by Aban]], meaning you essentially have to master each of the levels to even get her. [[spoiler:Even after that, the only way to use her in the second half of the game is to complete it in its entirety with Aban.]]

** Nyx from NyxQuest. She can perform several small [[DoubleJump Double Jumps]] in the air, and has a strange attack in the form of an orb that pauses in the air then launches.
** Finally, we have Curly from CaveStory. She is armed with a machine gun (though in practice itís more like an automatic pistol), but more importantly her [[JetPack Booster 2.0]] is present and accounted for. She would be termed as a GameBreaker if it wasnít for the reasons mentioned in BraggingRightsReward.

* NintendoHard: Come on. With a title like that, can you expect anything less? [[OneHitpointWonder One Hit Kills]], IWannaBeTheGuy style traps that manage to get into your head and put dart traps exactly where youíre jumping, and extremely precise jumps? All par for the course.
* OneHitPointWonder: Every single character apart from Knight Aban dies in a single hit. Knight Aban has two hit points, [[GhostsNGoblins just like the person heís cosplaying as.]]
