Found in a back room of Neo Babylon Link S2.png Neo Babylon 6-2, Ushabti are part of the chain that leads to the Sunken City Link S2.png Sunken City. Finding the correct one as noted in the Tablet of Destiny Link S2.png Tablet of Destiny and bringing it to the next level, 6-3, will cause it to "hatch" into the Qilin Link S2.png Qilin.

Description

Each Ushabti has a unique appearance composed of three different attributes:

  • The first attribute is a general descriptor that can either be simple, tall, smiling, or cracked.
  • The second attribute is the material, which can either be clay, wood, gold, jade, or onyx.
  • The third attribute is the symbol found on the figurine's abdomen, which can either be snake, eye, vortex, ankh, or bat.

    The entrance to the Ushabti room in 6-2 of Neo Babylon.

The back room that contains the Ushabti is always accessed through a small doorway in a structure found somewhere in 6-2 of Neo Babylon Link S2.png Neo Babylon. Inside, multiple deadly crushing Elevator Link S2.png Elevators can be found, along with all 100 possible variations of Ushabti.

After acquiring the Tablet of Destiny Link S2.png Tablet of Destiny , its Journal entry will be updated, describing the appearance of the Ushabti which will spawn the Qilin Link S2.png Qilin after taking the figurine into the next level. The correct Ushabti is chosen at random for all non-seeded runs.

Exploring the 6-2 Ushabti room.

Sacrificing an Ushabti to an Altar will prompt Kali to award the player with a "companion", varying with the player's favor.

Ushabti sacrifices will cut the player's favor in half if they are at a positive favor level, and as such do not allow the player to easily gain additional favor at an Altar.

Shooting the correct Ushabti with the Clone Gun Link S2.png Clone Gun will still cause it to produce a Qilin Link S2.png Qilin in the next level. If the player clones the correct Ushabti before it hatches on Neo Babylon Link S2.png Neo Babylon 6-3, the clone will not hatch until Tiamat's Throne Link S2.png Tiamat's Throne, 6-4. This can be done repeatedly until the player runs out of Clone Gun charges.
