What about a customizeable character? Or multiple ones? Maybe the robot/ninja chef is the main character, but after beating the game once you unlock Das Magdenburska... or something.
But since I'm a programmer myself I understand that it would take extra time, and probably not worth implementing.
And we could play as the turtle! No, not the Turtle Philosopher, but the Awesome Fun Turtle!

how about a 2 foot purple guy with eyebrows bigger than his head, and the strange ability to make things turn to custard just by thinking about them. he can run at 60 mph, but takes 3 screens or so to slow down. and if he touches a wall or the ceiling, millions of ping-pong balls flood the screen, killing him instantly. he can also fly by pressing the key just left of the CAPS LOCK key, but this ability only lasts 46 hours before he catches fire for no reason.

no, wait, that's silly...

I thought you had to press 8 a lot, which would flip your keyboard over, revealing all those keys they use in Tutorials  XD
I'm not dead. Not entirely. And yes, I'm embarrassed by most of the posts I made here.

Ah! There it is! Oooh, and the any key is there too!  XD

... a character who has a personality that lets him/her run around and e.g. throw bombs at random creatures and enemies.

Any ideas?
Sounds like Mario. Or Spelunky. Except you tend to be partial to female protagonists, except if it's an animal, where it's male. Or it could be a ball.
Surprise and excite us, Nifflas! I can't wait, even if it takes you 5 years!

Oh, and you should probably rename this topic to "Character Speculation".

Well, right now it isn't even a character speculation. I got a robot/alien character that I created early, but I'm going to replace it with something that have more personality. Right now I'm blank, the character could potentially be anything. Any ideas?

I doubt that Nifflas will change the movement engine, so its probably just only how the character looks.

A ninja would be cool though.

How about the Knytt Stories Ninja that crawls up and down against walls throwing stuff to you?

because the bird doesn't only run and climb (assuming it'll be such game).

The primary goal of a human charcher is to run, jump, climb. Its environment is build around that.

If you change it to a bird, then it suddenly changes to run, jump and fly. The environment will have to change and climbing has to be changed to flying.

Nifflas mentioned he had a robot, so its a human kind of character that runs and jumps. If it can climb, I dunno.

robots can fly too if you build them like that. Like the Iron man. :P
also birds can not fly, like penguins, you know. and even if it was "the birdgamebird", its flying ability could be just like a flap of the wings for a double jump.
since it's a game, to say that it has to be a human character because that's what the usual gaming engine is based on, is not exactly a "proof" or very logical conclusion. eventually, it could even be a fish that walks and jumps and maybe climbs, since it's fictional.

LPChip is right in this case. This player's abilities as well as physical shape makes it impossible to place a bird sprite there. Sure, you could excuse the lack of fly abilities with that the bird have not figured out how to fly, but the main problem is that the character width/height relationship is 1:2 and can carry objects above his/her head.
