This page sucks.
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is a retro-throwback that, at the same time is still very much modern. Taking the best of the past and the headache-relieving tech of today and wrapping it all up in one tight package.

Shovel Knight: King of Cards is slated to be released later in April 2019, the final main campaign of Shovel Knight.

Unused Music


This is the only track inside King Knight's .FSB file, and is confirmed to be the background music of the cards minigame for the upcoming King of Cards, and is simply added to the game in advance.


The 51st track on the Shovel of Hope soundtrack is this strangely different-sounding tune. This was also released with the original distribution of the .NSF files for this game's music as "Mystery". The file name suggests that the Troupple King was meant to do more, possibly for after the game's completion. This track can be played over the Troupple King's dance in-game by using the code TR&FDNC

Unused Sprites

Early Shield Knight


Shield Knight was originally a much different character, being more of a damsel-in-distress stereotype than being Shovel Knight's partner. This angle was dropped, as they wanted Shield Knight to be able to stand on her own, and this animation is the only thing that remains of this version.

Unused Upgrade?


Apparently, there is an unused third level of upgrading the Throwing Sickle in Specter of Torment! It seems to increase the amount of Sickles you can have on-screen at once to 3, and allow you to charge to throw sickles both in front of and behind you.

Filename Oddities

Death Village

Internally, Specter Knight's level from Shovel of Hope is called "deathvillage", likely changed due to how blunt it is.

No Tower 2?

The music files for the Tower of Fate levels in Shovel of Hope are missing a file for a second level, instead jumping to the third.

Regional Differences

The Japanese version of Shovel Knight came out much later than the rest of the world, in order to bring much more change to the game instead of being a simple translation; And thanks to that added focus on changing the game, a lot had changed when bringing the game overseas.

First, the title screen was given additional Japanese subtitles.


Now, in addition to all of the food items already in the game, the Gastronomer has a chance to make this rice ball dish.

Some enemies had more frames added to their animations, to better reflect the capabilities of the Famicom Disk System, such as the Dragon Whelps.

To do:
Add the coin change

When using the "Butt Knight" cheat code, a couple of item pickups undergo additional changes. The carrot is turned into a Daikon Radish, and gold coins are given a vertically-oriented redesign.
