Well, without further ado, here are all the playable characters in Shovel Knight Showdown!
Welcome to a battle of shovels, eternally retold! Today, we’re going to take a good look at the blue burrower himself — it’s Shovel Knight! Let’s get digging!
Fresh from Plague of Shadows, the maniacal alchemist bursts onto the battlefield with a boom!
Unstoppable even in death, the reaper of renown is ready to pursue new prey.
Hear ye! Gather one and all… and then stand aside! True royalty is coming through!
Go no further! The shield-wielding knight of the valley stands her ground with intrepid resolve.
Put your booms on! This up-and-coming knight in training is ready to right the world’s wrongs with a righteous fight!
Glory to Goldarmors! Too often do we find a new knight foolishly attempting to storm their way into our glorious King’s keep! Our esteemed ranks must form the first and final line of defense!
Steel thy shovel! The relentless, shovel-wielding knight answers to no one!
The fiery foreman is here to dig — and there’s plenty of work to be done!
The tidal terror emerges from the ocean depths! Whether it’s for gold or just bragging rights, this diving duelist is playing for keeps!
The tundra-treading, snow shovel sporting fighter needs no introduction! Which is good… because as a warrior of few words, Polar Knight is unlikely to provide one himself!
Cast your gaze this way, lovelies- the captain has arrived! Soaring the skies with saber out, the notorious spin controller will surely “blow away” the competition. En garde!
Enter the tireless inventor of devious machinations. Do a dizzying array of options raise the tiny tinkerer above the rest? The truth is in the math!
Kneel and bow to the malevolent orchestrator of the unforeseen, the Enchantress. You haven’t the slightest hope of defeating her, but you’re welcome to dance together into the abyss!
It’s time for a real fighter to step into the ring! Enough of these dorks and their goofy knight titles. The main event is here!
From the murky depths, he arises! Energy Boomerang buzzing in his hand, this fallen child of corruption takes no prisoners. Come on puppets, drink deep of the darkness!
Formless and infinite, the Liquid Samurai eternally serve their queen, the Enchantress. Even if one falls, another will rise up to replace it.
Hit the books and harness alchemical mysteries with the potion-brewing alchemist.
Whether he’s tending till of the Fancy Shop or in the throes of battle, you daren’t scuffle with this crazy collector of cranial coverings!
From the shadows, your next test emerges. Wielding both practiced skill and mysterious elemental power, he’ll strike at phantoms wherever they lie!
