Cyan Archer

An androgynous archer known as Prancing Puppet, they serve the King of Towerfall as a court jester.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Almost nothing is known about the Puppet's motives, no one can even tell who their real master is. Or if they even have one.

Red Archers

Two new archers included in the Darkworld Expansion. The Vainglorious Ghoul, the captain of the Amaranth, and the Crimson Corsair one of the crew members.

  • Automatic Crossbows: What the Crimson Corsair uses instead of a bow.
  • Chained by Fashion: Downplayed with the Crimson Corsair. He always has shackles binding his wrists, but since he was presumably imprisoned for an attempted mutiny, he doesn't wear them by choice.
  • Establishing Character Music: A boisterous, intense theme with likeness to Pirates of The Caribbean that plays on the Amaranth stage, or when either Red Archer wins.
  • Fatal Flaw: The Vainglorious Ghoul's pride led to her ship and crew being consumed by the Darkworld.
  • Hired Guns: The crew of the Amaranth were hired by the King as privateers to aid him in the war for Towerfall.
  • Perpetual Smiler: The only time the Crimson Corsair isn't smiling is when he loses a match.
