Characters[edit | edit source]

There are 8 normal characters and 9 secret ones. The secret characters are exactly like their normal counterparts, except they have better stats and they look different. The sole exception is Sumner, as he is an extra secret character with maxed-out stats.

Stat notes:

  • Characters always start with a max Health of 500, with the obvious exception of Sumner.
  • Each level increases all stats by 50 and Health by 100.
  • The Class Title at level 99 is always "Legend".
  • Secret characters have the same stats as their base characters, plus 50 points for each stat (excluding Health).

Some Class Titles are different for the secret character; they will be in parentheses after the base character's Class Title.
