* DoomedByCanon: Specter Knight himself. His main goal is to just recruit the Order, and then leave to attend to his own devices, but since he's one of the first three bosses you fight in both ''Shovel of Hope'' and ''Plague of Shadows'', it's clear that the campaign will end in failure.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: A bug in the 3DS version, introduced with the ''Treasure Trove'' update, causes the game to crash whenever the amiibo-exclusive Bomb Burst ability is used by Shovel Knight. This also means that one of the challenges, which requires the use of said ability, can't be completed.

* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: At the end of the campaign, the Enchantress reveals that she had corrupted and enslaved Reize so that Specter Knight would sacrifice his one chance of freedom and serve as her eighth knight by using the power of the locket to free Reize from her control.]]

** The XBoxOne-exclusive battle with the Battletoads has you go through challenges reminiscent of the original games (including a remake of the speeder bike section).

* {{Cameo}}: Shovel Knight has made numerous cameos in a wide variety of indie games including the WiiU exclusive Armillo (which released around the same time as Shovel Knight), Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (via Amiibo), Road Redemption, Indivisible, and Yooka-Layle.

* NoodleIncident: Percy says that his catapult will send Plague Knight into an armored fortress, but Plague Knight doesn't trust Percy's coordinates, due to the ''last'' time resulting in him being stuck out in the middle of the ocean, with all of his potions waterlogged. [[spoiler:Naturally, his fears are right: he lands right inside Armor Outpost while trying to stay incognito, even though taking over Armor Outpost is ultimately a boon.]]

* StealthPun: The challenge "Grave Robber" requires Plague Knight to collect all the money hidden in an area that is built as a loop, in contrast to more linear challenge stages. It's set in the Lich Yard, the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''-inspired area of the game, and the only tool at Plague Knight's disposal is the Spin Burst, which sends him into a damaging somersault that destroys everything he touches, much like the Screw Attack from ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}''. In all aspects, this challenge qualifies as [[spoiler:{{Metroidvania}}.]]

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Cloak of Clemency will prevent Specter Knight from instantly dying at cost of Darkness and Will. Since this mode is nothing short of bottomless pits and spikes, this helps ''a lot''.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Cloak of Clemency will prevent Specter Knight from instantly dying at cost of 2 bars of Darkness and Will.4 points of Will, depositing him to the nearest stable platform and making him invincible until you press a button, essentially letting you fall into a pit or touch spikes 2 times per life at full Darkness and Will before you run out. Since this mode is nothing short of bottomless pits and spikes, this helps ''a lot''.

* SecretAIMoves: Only the boss fight against Plague Knight [[spoiler:and the Plague of Shadows]] can summon multiple vats at once (as well as make them not disappear), teleport around the arena and throw three potion bombs at once.

* SecretAIMoves: Only the boss fight against Plague Knight [[spoiler:and the Plague of Shadows]] can summon multiple vats at once (as well as make them not disappear), teleport around the arena and throw three potion bombs at once. Specter Knight's curios give him abilities that resemble his boss moves (swooping in to slash at an enemy, hovering in midair, throwing a boomerang sickle, summoning skeletons) but he can't teleport at will under player control.
