Dante is a playable character added in Revelations Chapter Two. He is a two-in-one type character, with Charon being his second part.

Dante

Dante is the character the player spawns as, and is the main character of the two. Dante has ink tears, which leave slowing creep where they land. When beginning to fire, Dante will slam a book on the ground, which knocks back enemies and applies an increase of damage taken to enemies hit by the book (2.5x more damage if Dante is alone, 1.5x damage if he is merged with Charon). If an enemy collides with a wall as a result of the knockback, they sustain damage based on the player's damage-per-second rate. Enemies effected by the debuff will be tinted red and will have a red sigil above them. When used, the book will be on cooldown for two seconds, but will recharge if a debuffed enemy is killed.

Charon is the secondary character to Dante. Phylactery works uniquely with Charon as it also serves as a passive item. If Charon keeps face the same direction, his shot speed will be increased. If he changes direction, hit shot speed will be cut in half. Charon will regain 33% of his shot speed if he keeps facing the same direction for two seconds, and the remaining 66% if he keeps facing the same direction for seven seconds.

Playstyle

When beginning a floor, Dante will be alone, with Charon placed near the end of the floor. When Phylactery is fully charged (after clearing one room) all doors will be chained shut (excluding special rooms like the Treasure Room, Shop, etc.) Using the lantern will swap the player to the other character. The player must traverse through the floor with both Dante and Charon, with the goal being for the two characters to meet up. When both Charon and Dante enter the same room, their health, items, and trinkets will combine into one character. The player now controls Dante, with Charon now becoming a familiar-like entity next to Dante. Charon fires tears only in the direction he is facing. Phylactery will turn into a zero-charge active item, which is used to swap the direction in which Charon fires by activating it and pressing the firing keys (or movement keys, configurable in the Revelation's Options Menu) corresponding to the direction the player wants Charon to face.

Notes

  • Every floor before the Cathedral/Sheol will have Curse of the Labyrinth.
    • Because of this, there are fewer shops and Devil/Angel Rooms, but the latter has a higher chance of appearing.
  • When joined together, Dante and Charon are able to hold two trinkets and two consumables, but can only hold one when alone.
    • Because of this, items that would give extra trinket/consumable space such as Mom's Purse, Starter Deck, and Deep Pockets will not spawn.
  • All items are shared when the two have met up, but when separated their items will be split between them depending on who picked up what item.
    • When picking up any passive item, Phylactery can be activated during the pickup animation to send it to the other character. If performed when together it will go to Charon.
  • The first time Dante and Charon meet up, a dime will drop.
    • However, if the player leaves the room before the two characters make contact then re-enters, the other character will appear annoyed, increase speed and no Dime will spawn on contact.
  • The chains will temporarily disappear when you pick up an active item, allowing you to pass through and continue exploring without switching.
  • Neither character can enter the Boss Room alone. However, if one of the characters teleport into the Boss Room such as through The Emperor card, the other character will join up with the player immediately.
  • When defeating the second boss of any floor, two item pedestals will spawn instead of one.
  • Playing in Greed Mode as Dante will alternate between him and Charon every two waves. If you reach the boss wave, they will be reunited until the next floor.

Trivia

  • Following the Sin Update, Dante and Charon high five each other whenever they meet.
