|Merlin the Wizard|
|Name||Merlin the Wizard|
|Vehicles and/or Gadgets||None|
|Occupation||Main Protagonist of Gauntlet|
Merlin the Wizard is one of the protagonists in Gauntlet. He is a powerful hero, but, will greatly benefit from Extra Power Potions to augment his armor and speed. As might be expected, Merlin should avoid melee in favor of his powerful ranged attacks. His Magic power is great enough to blow away nearly all enemies.
He guides the Gamer Kid around the Coin-Op arcade and tells him about what is going on around the arcade, and tells him about the classic arcade games after Gamer finishes playing them. There is also a yellow Vortech-possessed version of himself spotted with the other Gauntlet characters similar to his original video game appearance, however that figure is a separate entity from him.
