Spelunky Wiki

Eggplants are an item in Spelunky 2.

Obtaining and Function[]

A single Eggplant is created when the spelunker offers a Present to a Kali Altar, if Kali is not angry at them. This prompts a message box reading "Kali enjoys a good mystery!".

Eggplants have the same durability as a Pot, and as such throwing it, dropping it from a far enough distance, or damaging it in any other fashion destroys it, leaving behind worthless purple chunks. Even when held in a Spelunker's hands, Eggplants can still be destroyed by passing projectiles or attacks.

The true function of the seemingly useless Eggplant is found in the Ice Caves, where it may be placed on a purple stained altar beside the Moai found near the top of the level.

Doing so will cause the Eggplant to disappear and open the Moai, allowing access into where the Eggplant Child sleeps.


  • Presents cannot be taken through doors, and as such the spelunker must find a level that contains both a Present and a Kali Altar.
    • The luck required for this can be lessened by visiting 4-2 of Tide Pool, as Great Humphead always drops a Present on death.
  • Carrying an Eggplant through levels may mean missing out on quest items such as Hou Yi's Bow or Excalibur. This is important, as the quest that the Eggplant is linked to requires a visit to the Sunken City.
    • Hired Hands can be used to carry multiple items through levels.
    • If an Eggplant was obtained prior to Olmec's Lair, Waddler can carry it for the spelunker to the Ice Caves.
