Behind the scenes information
Cut from

Surfing Dan is a cut gameplay mechanic from MediEvil. As part of The Mud Slide level, Dan would have had to surf downhill on his shield.[1]

The Surfing Dan model and animations can be found inside The Mud Slide WAD file in the MediEvil ECTS Pre-Alpha.[2] However, there appears to be no entity associated with Surfing Dan, making it unlikely that he was ever implemented into the game.



While surfing, Sir Dan stood on top of a muddied Silver Shield.



There are seven animations in total.
