  1. How about laser cat

  2. You can unlock a character called marathon runner if you play as the cheerleader and jump under the pyramids of cheer squads until they count up to 20 🙂

    1. Thanks for letting us know. I also found another one we were missing-Phone Box!

  3. You can unlock pinky by hopping on the hipster whale while playing as pac-chicken!

  4. Anyone have any idea how to unlock the other Sporty secret character? The one positioned between the football player and rugby player.

    1. I just figured it out. Play as the cheerleader and jump through the pyramids- when you do, the cheerleader on top jumps down. I’m not sure how many times you have to do this, but it can be done in multiple runs (it took me 3) and you’ll unlock the Marathon Runner.

  5. When getting the big fancy pig using blue can you collect the packets on separate runs or does it have to be the same one?

  6. This article is very helpful. I almost unlock all of the characters because of this. 🥳🥳🥳

  7. This is so useful!

  8. About the gingerbread man, you can unlock it in the first run, you don’t actually need to die a few times

    1. Thanks for noticing that! That might have been based on old information. I’ve updated the article.

  9. About the choc mallard, i think the way you have to unlock it is to have 4 gummy bears following you at the same time, because i unlocked it in the second run i did with the gummy and there is just no way i have collected enough candy to fit the current criteria.

    1. Thanks for this, too! I’ve credited you on the page for your help!

  10. This was a great list! It helped me so much thank you! I love how you mentioned all characters. If you wanted any feedback, maybe you could have pictures of the character beside it, but it’s still a really good help.

  11. There’s a new update Called the candy update plz update this I want to earn a secret character in the candy section (I already got “too much candy” and “gingerbread man.”

    1. Hello!

      So I’ve looked into this. There is no confirmed technique for unlocking the secret character, the Choc Mallard. However, it seems to be closely related to unlocking the Jelly Bear and collecting Jellies on the ground when you play as it. I’ve updated the guide, but I’ll have to update it again when I have more precise information.

  12. Big fancy pig: Unlock by playing as blue in the cats section, then collect 6 green chips (some are hard to find).

  13. You can unlock the character “too much candy.” If you see a brown lake instead of blue, jump in it. It can be any character

    1. Wait what about space update characters and featured ones (not the piggy bank) I think you can’t earn that with those. There’s is no river in space nothing. So, you can’t play with every character to earn the so called “ate too much candy.”

      1. “If you see a brown lake instead of blue, jump in it. It can be any character.” It’s not saying all characters can get it, it’s saying if you are playing as a character, and see a brown instead of blue river, you can jump in it as anyone. The original comment is grammatically and factually correct.

      2. I’ll revisit this page today and update with all the new/outdated characters.

  14. Hi thank you for putting this here. It has helped me unlock a lot of new characters.

  15. This doesn’t contain the secret characters in the party section, I only know how to get the one named “too much candy” which I got when I jumped into a brown colored river while playing a a UK character.

    1. I, too, would like to know how to unlock the last Party character. The very last one after the piñata…
