Lord Zyrom

The Big Bad, he's the game's only boss and functions as the game's final boss.


Minor characters


Tropes that apply to all of the characters.

  • Apathetic Citizens: The player character could be on the verge of bursting and they won't even respond.
  • Minimalist Cast: There's less than 15 minor characters in the whole game.
  • Put on a Bus: They only appear in their respective level, and then are never mentioned again.


The first character the player meets, he's a badger that informs them about the sentries spread throughout the levels and then never appears again.


An obese shark that's working on the water pipes in world 2-1, he has even less of a role.


A ghost the player finds in world 3-2. He's mentioned early on in world 3, and is the only hint to the existence of Lord Zyrom in-game.

  • Bed Sheet Ghost: Like the rest of the characters in world 3.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Is mentioned in 3-1, and reveals the existence of Lord Zyrom before the player faces him.
  • Advertisement:
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: Is hidden in a very obscure place in world 3-2, just two sub-worlds before the fight against Zyrom. He's also only mentioned by one ghost in world 3-1.

The other ghosts

Other ghosts found in world 3-1. One of them is away from the pack, looking for Ghosty.

  • Bed Sheet Ghost: They all share the same sprite, too.
  • Nominal Importance: Subverted. All of them are named, but only one of them even talk to the player character.
  • The Quiet One: A large group of them appear in world 3-1, but never say anything to the player character.

How well does it match the trope?
