Given the nature of the spelunker as an IndianaJones {{Expy}} one might notice the distinct lack of Nazis, prevalent in the Indian Jones series, but not to be seen here. Perhaps Spelunky takes place a decade or so after World War 2, and many Nazi officers fled to the cave to escape justice for their crimes. The higher technology such as the teleporter and the jetpack are easily explained: they're not inventions of an advanced humanity, but rather come from [[spoiler: the aliens in area 3]].

[[WMG: The Spelunker has [[SanitySlippage gone mad]] and the he's seeing reality through a distorted lens.]]
*After suffering from severe dehydration and other hardships during his voyage in the desert, the Spelunker's mental state has deteriorated considerably. The enemies he's fighting, such as spiders and snakes, are exaggerated and hallucinatory. The anachronistic and out-of-place things he's seeing, such as the presence of cavemen and knights and, are his interest in archeology blending with reality.

[[WMG: The red things that the Damsels wear are what supplies the healing factor to their kisses.]]
* Somehow, the Damsel's red dress, the Dude's red clothes and tie, and the puppy's collar give their kisses/licks a special healing property.

[[WMG: The Damsel(s) found in the cave are the "her" referred to in some of the intros.]]
* If you leave the damsels on the default female version, that is. The mysterious "her" followed you into the cave, with the Curse of Olmec resurrecting her every time she died. She attempts to follow the Spelunker, but she's not exactly a whip-cracking chasm-swinging adventurer-type, so she frequently gets stuck in hard-to-reach places and needs the Spelunker to try to rescue her. However, if the Spelunker misses her, she dies of dehydration/enemies/falling and is resurrected so that the Spelunker can try to rescue her in the next cave.

[[WMG: Olmec's Curse is actually Olmec's Challenge.]]
The mighty Olmec set up the caves not to ward off and punish would-be thieves, but to be an elaborate game to challenge nosy adventurers. They are resurrected when they die because he ultimately wants them to win through hard lessons and perseverance, he rearranges the levels somehow to keep it interesting and unpredictable, he's even a fair fight when you confront him in his lair! And after all that, he gives you a big golden thingy as a reward for winning his challenge.
* Its also why nothing really bothers attacking the damsels, they're not there for the challenge, just lost, and the monsters understand that and leave them alone.
* Hell, though, that's just Yama being a jerk.

** Further implied by the lantern. All other stores have yellow lanterns, but the one in kissing booths are red. Red light district, anyone?
