Ox Cadence

Ox and Cadence are NPCs that can be rescued from a cell in the Keep of the Lead Lord or the Gungeon Proper. After freeing them, they will move up to The Breach in the Gungeon Acquisitions Department, where they will sell various items and guns for Hegemony Credit that will appear in future runs. A total of 682 Hegemony Credit is required to purchase everything.

According to Cadence, her sister (the Blacksmith) built Ox to protect Cadence; Ox is therefore programmed to care for Cadence.

Arm Quest[ | ]

Ox is missing his left arm when he is first rescued. The Blacksmith in the Forge has a replacement arm, located to the left of her. The arm will only be there after the High Dragun has been killed at least once.

After picking up the arm, a red balloon will randomly drop from an enemy on the floor, which will send the arm up a floor. The arm and the balloon can then be dropped by random enemies in the Hollow, and the arm can again be sent up a floor. This must be repeated until both items are found in the Keep of the Lead Lord, after which they will be sent up to The Breach and Ox will receive the replacement. In return, Cadence rewards the player with Clone.

The balloon will be lost if the enemy carrying it falls down a pit.

Using Shortcuts will not stop the arm or balloon from spawning. The arm will move up a floor regardless of whether the player completes the floor.

It is possible to deliver the arm during Boss Rush if Wall Mimics spawn. It is also possible for enemies carrying the Arm or Balloon to be knocked into pits, thus causing the loss of that item, forcing the player to redo that floor to get the Balloon and arm again.

Shop Restocking[ | ]

Whenever a row of articles in the shop is bought out, it will be replaced by a selection of new ones when players visit the shop again after another (attempted) run through the Gungeon. Alternatively, the player can walk out of the Breach by going south. This brings the player to the Title Screen and restocks the shop upon reentering the game.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Ox's arm delivery quest might be a reference to Venom Snake's bionic arm in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and the balloon is likely a reference to the Fulton surface-to-air recovery system.
  • Upon entering their shop, there is a small chance Ox's face will be covered by a paper sheet with a smiley face on it.
  • In an early version of the game, Ox was instead referred to only by the name 'Robot', and was not rescued alongside Cadence, instead simply being in the Gungeon Acquisitions Department upon her arrival.
  • The Acquisitions Department may possibly be a reference to Acquisitions Incorporated, a series of podcasted D&D adventures.
  • While Ox's named is spelled Ox, like the animal, it is close to "0x" which is commonly used to denote a set of numbers being in hexadecimal format (for instance, 0x11 means 18 in decimal). This does not seem to relate to anything beyond Ox being a robot, and may be a coincidence.

Exit the Gungeon[ | ]

(Will be tabbered when finished)

Ox and Cadence reappear in the Enter the Gungeon spinoff Exit the Gungeon, where they fulfil a similar role as merchants of unlockable items. After being freed from the Rat's cage, they will move to the Underbreach where they will set up shop, accepting Hegemony Credit in return for unlocking items and guns that may appear on future attempts to exit the Gungeon.
