Cadence is the protagonist of Crypt of the Necrodancer. She is a young explorer who went to the crypt in search of her father, Dorian.

She is unlocked by default.

Rules and Restrictions Edit

As the base character, she does not have any starting bonus nor malus in any way.

She starts with 3 Hearts (can be increased in single zones mode by buying heart containers in the Lobby), a basic dagger, a basic shovel, and one bomb.

As she is cursed by the Necrodancer, she must move to the beat of the music on each floor.

Starts with 1 Damage, 1 Vision Radius, 1 Dig, 0 armor.

Cadence will always fight Dead Ringer followed by The Necrodancer as her Zone 4 bosses.

Strategy Edit

Items Edit

Since Cadence starts in pretty weak condition, the player has to avoid the level's Boss/Mini-Boss as long as they did not manage to gear up through buying better equipment in shops or through chests.

Choral Edit

Choral Choral has the same mechanics as Cadence and is played by player 2 in co-op or can be selected in gameplay options [1].

Trivia Edit

  • Her age is unknown, but it is probable she's no more 17-18 years old, as she was still a growing child two years before the main events of the game.
