|~ Shovel Knight to Shield Knight|
Shovel Knight is the main protagonist of the series of the same name. He appeared in the 73rd episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Scrooge McDuck VS Shovel Knight, where he fought against Disney's Scrooge McDuck.
Little is known about Shovel Knight except that he and his partner Shield Knight traveled across the world together collecting treasure. Then, during an expedition in the Tower of Fate, a cursed amulet took control of Shield Knight and disappeared with her.
Despondent over his partners disappearance, Shovel Knight gave up adventuring, until he heard of the Enchantress and her "Order of No Quarter". Knowing that she unsealed the Tower of Fate, Shovel Knight took it to himself to go to the tower, and find his partner.
