Cuphead Wiki

The Desert Limes are one of the ingredients of the Wondertart. They are held by Esther Winchester in the level High-Noon Hoopla.



Desert Limes are simple limes. They are put in a money bag tied by a rope and dressed with some cacti that are blooming.


In A Dish To Die For, Desert Limes are sentient. They have a face and legs, with a puffed up cheek.


It is one of two pre-ready ingredients seen in the intro of the fight against Chef Saltbaker, the other being Icy Sugar Cubes, that he would push away as his first attack on the player.

In the first phase of Chef Saltbaker's fight, Desert Limes are used as a weapon for an attack where Saltbaker slices their bodies up with his knife then then pushes them off to the side. Their sliced pieces will come from the side that they were pushed off from and will boomerang back. If they appear higher then they will boomerang lower and vice-versa.
