The Vorpan can only be obtained after playing Dead Cells for a few runs. Once it becomes available, a special interaction with the shop merchant will trigger on any given level until it is properly unlocked by the player.
- The critical hit cannot be applied to Spawners, Protectors, Shockers, Impalers, Maskers, Conjunctivius, or the Giant, due to the fact that they have no frontside.
- Similarly, the same problem occurs with the Assassin's Dagger, as these enemies don't have a backside either.
- Because of its short range, it is crucial to manage crowds to not get swarmed by enemies, as this weapon struggles against fights with many targets.
- This weapon is a reference to the animated release trailer, where the Beheaded fights off enemies using a frying pan by hitting them in the face with it. It was the last weapon provided to him.
- The flavor text is a reference to the title of the trailer, "Kill. Die. Learn. Repeat.".
- The weapon's name is likely a portmanteau of the words "vorpal" and "pan".
- Walking into a shop while equipping the Vorpan and the Tentacle will trigger a special interaction with the shop merchant.
- This interaction is a reference to the animated launch trailer, where at the end of the video the Beheaded and a merchant use the Vorpan to cook a tentacle.
