They’re super out of the way
You can go through hundreds of runs in Rogue Legacy 2 without ever spotting an eggplant person. But just know that they’re out there hiding, off-screen, waiting to be discovered.
What do they do? Well, they look cute. They liven up the place! Do you strictly need them? Not unless you’re a completionist looking to befriend every NPC in Rogue Legacy 2.
After hearing about these silly hidden characters, I knew I had to find them and bring them back to my home base — you know, just for the heck of it. You might want to, too. Thanks to a video demonstration by YouTube user Teelore, I was able to reach all four eggplants, and given how obscure their locations are, a guide is definitely recommended.
As shown in the video, there are four hidden sentient eggplants to find — and interact with — to bring them to your base with the rest of the NPCs. You’ll preferably want to have teleporters to the Sun Tower and Kerguelen Plateau unlocked to shorten the trip(s).
To make things easier, it’s best to turn on House Rules in the pause menu — specifically, toggle the ability to fly (which, on a controller, is done by clicking in the right stick by default). The eggplants are high up, and while it’s technically possible to reach them with certain classes like the Astromancer, who can fly with its Comet ability, it’s not ideal.
The four eggplant locations in Rogue Legacy 2
One eggplant is in the tutorial of all places (which you can replay on New Game+).
Another is at the end of the red teleporter challenge rooms that appear randomly.
There’s an eggplant up high in the snowy Kerguelen Plateau biome.
And one more is at the top of the Sun Tower.
The tutorial secret is absurdly easy to miss, and given the nature of randomized room layouts, it can take a while to find a challenge arena, too. So, if you care to find Easter Eggplant, Easter English Breakfast, Easter Ham ‘N Eggplant, and Easter Omeletteplant, you’ll need to keep an eye out and grind the good Rogue Legacy 2 grind like normal.
Once you interact with the eggplants, you’ll find them back home, under the Soul Shop.
