List of all traits in Rogue Legacy 2

All of the different traits your characters can have

Every time your lineage continues in Rogue Legacy 2, your new heir will have a trait that often has some kind of trade-off. Most will buff your gold gain, but stunt you in another way. Our Rogue Legacy 2 trait guide lists out all the traits and what they do, so you’ll know what to pick.

Traits are not inherently tricky to understand, but all traits will be listed alongside question marks the first time you pick them. This can make choosing a successful heir difficult when you don’t know what the traits actually do. (After all, nobody wants to be blindsided with a trait that makes them die faster, or flips their screen around.)

Not every trait has a negative effect, either. Some just make your heir fart or turn blue. Yeah.

With the help of the Rogue Legacy 2 wiki, we’ve listed out all the traits currently available in the game below.
