Rival W.I.P.

Shovel Knight is the main protagonist of the titular series and is a playable character in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale.



Back in the day, where looters traveled and the world was wild, two legendary knights found massive success in treasure hunting and gaining large amounts of gold. These two were Shovel Knight and Shield Knight, a duo that was completely inseparable... Until they ventured into the Tower of Fate, where Shield Knight was whisked away, Shovel Knight was knocked out, and, when he woke up, the tower was sealed shut. In a bout of depression, Shovel Knight returned to a life of farming until the Enchantress and her knights, the Order of No Quarter, took over the land. Not only that, but the Tower of Fate was unsealed. Now motivated to return to normal life as a knight, Shovel Knight unsheathed his blade and traveled the land, defeating all of the knights and finding some unique abilities. Eventually, he found Shield Knight, who was possessed by the Enchantress, freed her, and, now a duo once more, they overcame the Enchantress. After the two narrowly escaped death, their adventures continued to this very day!
