– Shovel Knight is the protagonist of Shovel Knight, and also appears as a hidden boss, playable character or NPC in some other games developed by Yacht Club Games. Shovel Knight wears blue armor giving him the look of an archetypal medieval knight, with a giant metal shovel blade affixed to his right arm. Shovel Knight’s Shovel Blade can not only be used for close-range combat, but it is also useful for digging up gems and treasure. Shovel Knight’s name and Shovel Blade’s resemblance to a shovel may derive from the phrase “shoveling coal,” implying Shovel Knight is a Blacksmith or that Shovel Knight works with some sort of combustible material. Shovel Knight was once a great and honorable warrior, but after the Enchantress burned his land to the ground, Shovel Knight is left with no choice but to take up his Shovel Blade and fight against anything that may cause harm to those he loves and cares for.
