Zacharie is the game's item vendor, buying and selling items to and from The Batter. His shop is the only one in the game, and he often shows up in new areas or shortly before difficult fights. He has a tendency to frequently break the fourth wall, even more than The Judge, often referring to the player directly upon speaking to him/her. He also refers to The Player in a sign found in Bismark's shopping mall.

Appearance(s)

Zacharie is initially seen wearing a toad mask, which interestingly parallels a book found in the Bismark library that talks about a Masked Man who slays a Toad King. His neck also appears to be somewhat bloated and deformed, also resembling a toad. He is later seen wearing a cat mask as a replacement for The Judge, who is put out of commission by the death of his brother Valerie. His talking sound also turns into a voiced "Meow" instead of his usual chuckle.

Role

Zacharie is an item vendor, claiming himself to be "the traditional items merchant that's necessary in every video game". He is implied to own the Bismark theme park, as there is a statue of him on the roller coaster, and an Elsen guarding an office refers to him as "boss".

He seems to be a friend of The Judge, filling in for him and sometimes worrying for his safety. He also knows Sugar, who requests that The Batter tell him goodbye upon her defeat. He appears saddened by her death, and there is no chuckle when he is talked to. Interestingly enough, he states that "it's probably for the best".

Trivia

  • Mortis Ghost has confirmed that Zacharie is a human.
  • It's possible that Zacharie may be the Masked Man who slew the Toad King, or perhaps the story was based off of or even written by him.
    • The French version of the game does in fact confirm that Zacharie is the Masked Man who slaughtered the Toad King. The Index of the ripped-up book in the library of Zone 2 has a page named "Le roi crapeau et le merchand" which translates to "The toad king and the merchant". The significance to this and the connections to the game's actual story is not yet known.
  • Zacharie may have connections with Japhet or Vader Eloha, leading to his acquisition or creation of the Bismark theme park.
