    Is it me or they exchanged Daedalus for Icarus?

    This has been in my mind for a while now, cause knowing the mithology Daedalus was Icarus father, and the latter was the one who flew too close to the sun and ended by burning his wings built up by his father.

    Now, as you can see in the game, the character who looks disfigured by the fire is Daedalus, while i guess he is actually Icarus.

    Am i missing something or they mistook one for another?

    I noticed that also. Icarus wings didn't burned, but the wax melted and the feathers fell off both wings. It looks like the feathers on one wing of daedalus burned.

    I may be looking at it wrong. I just never gave it any more attention. Both are good toons to have. I wonder what the minotaur could do. We could even have a King Minos as an enemy.

    Yeah I think your on to something there... Interesting to say the least, it's like when I look at the "Run to the hills Eddie", I'm thinking he's more like "Killers Eddie" from the Killers album.
    I think they got those confused as well now that I think about it...

    run to the hills is based on the album cover with yellow shirt
    they could have just swapped shirt color of run to the hills and we would have killers eddie
    but i guess to make us feel the dev's effort they made a different model which shows that the devs are actully doing some justice

    My kid said the same thing about Icarus - he know the word to the song and asked me abbout it...why is he metal Dad? I had no answer - why is Daedalus the one that is burned......maybe need to read up on it a bit more but they may well have got them mixed up!
    Missing the following characters (well the ones I want!)...never bother keeping things like idols and hearts:

    Samurai Emperor Eddie - NotB Eddie - Pharoah Ramesses Eddie
    Redan - The Count - Krampus...and so many of the new guys I can't be bothered updating this!!

    Icarus never was burned. The wax on his wings melted and the feathers fell off. He then fell into the water and drowned.

    I dont know why daedalus wing appears to be burnt.

    In mythology Daedalus is a craftsman, so probably works around forges, tools, clock works and metals. That would explain the burnt wings.
