|Location||Village of Departure (D-4)|
Elder Xelpud is the leader of the Village of Departure. He offers the player a wide variety of advice, both in-person and remotely through the Xelputter app. The usefulness of this advice can vary, but he always has something unique and humorous to say.
As in the previous game, Xelpud will give a description of whatever Usable Item you have equipped when you speak to him. Later in the game, he will also give you hints about where to find Game Software that you are missing.
Elder Xelpud was responsible for protecting the La-Mulana ruins till their destruction; now, he simply enjoys life. He turned La-Mulana into a tourist spot, bringing in visitors and also hefty profits. Once a hardcore lover of video games, Xelpud is now all about finance: he dresses up all snazzy-like and women serve him hand and foot. Though he did hire the women to do that.
Hey, you made it.
We've finally managed to turn the La-Mulana ruins into a tourist spot, and now we've been getting reports of unknown monster sightings, so I sent a letter to yer dad, the archaeologist, asking him to come investigate.
You can't get hold of yer dad? So you break into archaeology and immediately surpass yer dad, huh?
Apparently the monsters have been coming from the depths of the ruins. With all this danger, nobody's gonna wanna come here anymore and we're gonna lose all our businesses.
But with my being such a gentleman and all, I'm gonna do you a favor and help a cute little girl out.
This is my very own homegrown messaging software. I'll send you helpful hints and stuff to help out with yer investigation.
Here you go, grab summa this. Xelpud makin' it rain!

Here's a map of the La-Mulana ruins and the village area.
|Hand Scanner description|
Hey there, you scored a Hand Scanner, huh?
As an archaeologist, you gotta be able to read the ancient texts written on the tablets. Also memos found with skeletons, signs, stuff like that, too.
You wanna hear it again?
- Xelpud's name is a reference to one of La-Mulana's developers, duplex.
- In promotional artwork, Xelpud's t-shirt says ファミコン (Famicom).
- By attacking the head of Xelpud's statue in Village of Departure (F-3), you can cause a clump of moss to fall on it. Xelpud will then be seen wearing a wig for the rest of the game. This awards the What's the Wig Idea? achievement.
