First Appearance Shovel Knight (June 26, 2014)
Finisher Catch Her!

Shovel Knight is a playable character in B.O.K.O, being the 22nd character introduced, and the second created by TheFoxyRiolu (tbc). Based around the heroic main protagonist of the titular Shovel Knight, Shovel Knight is a heavy character with lots of defense and power to make up for his slow speed and terrible jump skills.


In Shovel Knight, Shovel Knight, alongside partner-in-battle Shield Knight, are two travelers who protect their country from danger. When Shield Knight disappears and their former partners and allies form The Knight's Order of No Quarter under a new villain, Shovel Knight must travel across the land on his own, defeating each member of the a Order of No Quarter to final confront the Enchantress and rescue Shield Knight.

Shovel Knight also briefly appears a few times in the first free DLC of the game, Plague of Shadows, where he takes the place of Plague Knight (who is playable in PoS) as a boss in both the Explodatorium and the last stretch of the back-to-back Order of No Quarter fight, both times in which Shovel Knight supposedly "defeats" Plague Knight after the latter defeats him.
