** Shield Knight and Polar Knight both have an exposed face. Polar Knight takes it further, having a Viking thematic, which means his body is much more visible than any of the other Knights.

** [[spoiler: Specter Knight does this and tries to defeat the Enchantress himself for a few reasons. Not the least of which is that she has the amulet that would restore him to life, what she's done to the son of his old partner, and because she's possessing Shield Knight. He even teams up with the other example of this trope to do so.]]

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Whereas Shovel Knight and Plague Knight have a goal involving someone they loved, Specter Knight's goals involve escaping the Enchantress's employ, making him much much more selfish, impulsive, and cynical, but not incapable of altruistic acts, in spite of starting as a petty thief. His gameplay also has a great emphasis on movement and speed, with his movement options not as limited as Shovel Knight's, but he isn't as powerful at traversing terrain as Plague Knight is with his bomb jumps.

** The flashback sequences of ''Specter of Torment'', play slightly differently than the main game. Because Donovan isn't undead yet, he doesn't use darkness to use his relic. Instead he uses a magic meter just like Shovel Knight, complete with magic drops from enemies. If Donovan dies, his money bags resemble Shovel Knight's (with angel wings instead of demon wings) and the name on the death screen says "Donovan" instead of the file's name.

** In Plague Knight's story, [[spoiler: Shovel Knight]], taking Plague Knight's place as boss of the Explodatorium, has a remix of that character's theme with the tempo and instrumentation of Plague Knight's boss theme. Also, [[spoiler: the final boss of Plague Knight's story has a remix of his normal boss theme.]]

** Eagle-eyed players can find Specter Knight's room in the Lich Yard, similarly to Plague Knight's secret room in ''Plague of Shadows''. However, unlike Plague Knight's, the room has some familiar block formations, and breaking open a locked section reveals a hidden chest. [[spoiler:The epilogue reveals that this room was the one that Plague Knight finds the Phase Locket in.]]

* GenderFlip: A planned mode for the game will switch the genders of every major character. The Enchantress becomes the Enchanter, the Order of No Quarter becomes all female, and so on. The game's dialogue will even be changed slightly to reflect it.
