From Pizza Tower Wiki

Gerome is an NPC found in all regular levels in Pizza Tower.


Gerome is a magenta pillar creature, wearing blue overalls, faded orange shoes and gloves, and a blue cap. He sometimes appears to be either in a lunch break, mopping the floor, or taking a nap. He is Pillar John's brother.

Gerome is implied to be the Tower's one and only Janitor, cleaning up many levels on the tower, with his janitor closet having a Tower Secret Treasure. He is one of the few pillar creatures that will never attack the Player and is passive to them, the other being Pillar John.


Gerome can be found in every single level (Except for Tutorial, in The Crumbling Tower of Pizza he doesn’t unlock Janitor Doors) hidden in specific locations. After the player finds him, Gerome will start to follow them. The player then needs to get him to his Janitor Room in that particular level so he can unlock it and reveal that level's Tower Secret Treasure inside. He will also refill any combo's timer upon being found.

Gerome also appears in small cutscenes after unlocking next floor, lifting up the elevator.

In the game's ending, Gerome stands sadly next to John's remains. If the player has all Tower Secret Treasures, John will be resurrected, and Gerome and John will celebrate together and enact a bonus cutscene. Otherwise, Peppino will just look towards the screen disappointed, and then will leave.

This section is dedicated to trivia and miscellaneous information about Gerome.
Remember to read the wiki's trivia guidelines before adding trivia or making changes.
  • McPig has mentioned that he imagined Gerome would sound similar to Jasper from The Simpsons.
  • Previously on a stream, McPig mentioned that Gerome is British.
  • In the April 2021 Build and Rework, Gerome was used as Lap 2. He would be near the exit, and could only be collected during Pizza Time. The Tower Secret Treasure door would be located not far from Pillar John, and collecting it would end the level.
    • In the Rework build, ending a level through the Tower Secret Treasure would then spawn the player out of bounds in a broken version of Oh Shit!. See the Trivia on that page for more info.
  • Gerome is very similar to Keyzer from Wario Land 4.
    • The elevator cutscene could also be referencing Virtual Boy Wario Land which contains a similar scene between stages.
