Most things in Spelunky are randomly generated and unpredictable. However, there are a few rare cases where you are guaranteed the chance to acquire one or more of a specific item.

Level Generation

  • A Key and Big Chest await somewhere on levels 2, 3, or 4, with the Udjat Eye inside. Both items always spawn on the same level.
  • The entrance to the Black Market is somewhere in the Jungle.
  • The Black Market always contains a stall selling the Ankh.
  • The Moai always generates somewhere in the Ice Caves, with the Hedjet inside.
  • There is always a Golden Door somewhere in the Temple, although it may be hard to find as it can generate submerged in lava.
  • There is always a Golden Statue in the the City of Gold, which contains a diamond.

Enemy Drops

Level Feelings

Although Level Feelings are not guaranteed, some contain guaranteed items within them.


  • The Tutorial cave is always the same, and contains two bombs, several gems and piles of gold, one snake, and one bat are found in the tutorial cave.
    However, any items you collect or use don't carry over after completing it.
  • While the items found in crates is random, custom levels will contain any item that is specifically put in them.
  • Skeletons, Vampires, and Jiang Shi all drop a Skull when defeated.
  • When their pool is drained, Pirahnas leave skeletons.
  • When you reach 16 favor with Kali, a Kapala is guaranteed to appear on the altar.
