Shantae Wiki

Part of the Zombie Caravan in Shantae.

The Zombie Caravan is nomadic community of relatively civilized zombies. The caravan can only be found at night, and is found in a different place each night (although nobody ever sees it move). It is Rottytops' hometown.

By Risky's Revenge either Rottytops no longer travels with the Carvan, or due to the fact that Shantae cannot travel to other towns, only Rotty's wagon is visible. In The Pirate's Curse, Rotty's family is once again shown isolated from their brethren, using the wagon to travel unharmed through the dangerous Spiderweb Island, but by the end of the game Rotty's brothers Abner Cadaver and Poe mention that they will try to get back in touch with the Caravan.

Every night, the Caravan will be placed within a random area transition. It is recommended to bring a set of 4 Warp Squids to town so that it can easily be located again. Warping to the town during the day will automatically progress the game's clock forward to nighttime, which can be useful if the player is hunting down fireflies for the temple in Water Town.

Noteworthy Places

  • Rotty's Wagon (aka "Keep Out!!") - Rotty's home. Unlike other friends, Rotty does not give advice on where to go after her initial use - instead you can go here to play her race minigame again.
  • Item Shop - Where Shantae can buy various items.
  • Bathing Wagon - Where Shantae recharges her health.
  • Save Room - Where you can save your game.
  • Warp Squid Wagon - Bring four Baby Warp Squids here to learn a dance that teleports Shantae to this town.
