Vlad's Cape is a powerful piece of Backwear in Spelunky 2.
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.
- 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.
- See also: Jetpack, a commonly compared item.
- 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.
