Azure Striker Gunvolt 2Edit

Shovel Knight can be fought in Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 as a bonus boss by either Gunvolt or Copen by scanning the Shovel Knight amiibo.

Blaster Master ZeroEdit

Shovel Knight, alongside Gunvolt, is one of several DLC characters for Blaster Master Zero, having been announced alongside Shantae. He released on the 3rd of August 2017.

Attacks Edit

Strike the Earth Edit

Shovel Knight jumps and makes a downward stab on your head. He will create a giant shockwave when he lands, so be ready to jump. He always makes three strikes with this move before using Molten Earth.

Molten Earth Edit

Shovel Knight flings a mix of rocks and fire at you. The rocks can be destroyed with Flashfield, the fire can't. Depending on his health, he flings 1-2 barrages at you before switching to Strike the Earth.

  • Unlike most other bosses Shovel Knight has no Special Skill. He performs his attacks with greater intensity as his health drops.
  • Your characters level and skill will reset to 1 when facing Shovel Knight.
