Vlad's Cape is a powerful piece of Backwear in Spelunky 2.

It is a guaranteed drop from Vlad, found at the top of Vlad's Castle in Volcana.

Functionality

Sticker of Vlad's Cape seen in the Journal's Run Recap.

Although it takes the appearance of a red cape on the ground, Vlad's Cape will give the player a pair of red wings when worn.

  • Grants the user a double jump approximately the same height as the player's normal jump, as well as the standard Cape's gliding abilities once the double jump has been exhausted.
    • Attaching to a wall with Climbing Gloves or climbing up a Rope, ladder, or other climbable object will replenish the cape's second jump.
    • When used with Spring Shoes, both the player's initial jump and double jump will have increased height and velocity.
  • Also causes entities to drop twice as much blood as usual (the average number of drops is two, made four with Vlad's Cape), allowing for faster accumulation of the Kapala.

Strategy

  • See also: Jetpack Link S2.png Jetpack, a commonly compared item.

Trivia

  • In a Developer AMA, Lead Programmer Miguel "Micky" Pascual commented that Vlad's Cape was to originally have 2 charges (granting the wearer a total of 3 jumps). Although the team had misinterpreted the instructions given by Spelunky creator and Lead Designer Derek Yu, Yu had found it to be more sensible and left Vlad's Cape with only a single charge.
