    As of writing, there are over 37 playable characters in Vampire Survivors. You start out with one, and three others are unlocked by default. However, you must still purchase the three unlocked characters to make them playable.

    The same goes for the rest of the characters in Vampire Survivors. The price of the characters will increase by 10% each time you purchase a new one.
