Spelunkers

There are 20 different playable Spelunkers available in Spelunky HD that can be used in all single player and multiplayer game modes.

Each of the Spelunkers have identical abilities; the differences between them are purely cosmetic and do not affect gameplay.

Four are available from the beginning, but the remaining eight must be unlocked by fulfilling certain requirements.
Unlocking all eight of the original secret characters earns the Achievement: 'The Entire Gang'.

There are also eight additional characters who are unlocked by purchasing the Explorers DLC.

Original SpelunkersEdit

Almost all the Spelunkers will be found inside Coffins, most are tied to a specific Level Feeling while some just need to be found inside the main four areas, the Coffin page has a better explanation of how Coffin generation works.
