Added DiffLines:

* ForegoneConclusion: Due to the main game being about defeating the members of the Order of No Quarter, it's almost certain that Specter Knight will recruit all of them.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Suggested to be the case; the music in the trailer comes off as somber (if still energetic), and implies that we're going to see the circumstances behind Specter Knight's death and resurrection.

* UnreliableNarrator: [[https://twitter.com/YachtClubGames/status/804766788068093952 A Tweet]] from [[WordOfGod Yacht Club Games]] suggests that the campaign is actually from Plague Knight's perspective, which would go a way in explaining the behavior of [[spoiler:Shovel Knight]] after you defeat him.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Specter Knight's scythe is capable of slicing cannonballs in two.
* CallAHitPointASmeerp: Because Specter Knight isn't living, he has a Will meter instead of a Life meter.


Added DiffLines:

* WallRun / WallJump: Specter Knight can walk up walls and jump off of them to make up for his rather abysmal normal jumping height.
* WolverineClaws: The Death Claw relic, a gauntlet with sharpened blades for fingers.

* {{Prequel}}: The DLC is about Specter Knight recruiting the members of the Order of No Quarter, rather than being on the same journey as Shovel Knight as with Plague Knight in ''Plague of Shadows''.
* SerialEscalation: ''Plague of Shadows'' is, aside from a few tweaks, the base game, except Plague Knight has his own distinct playstyle and physics. Specter Knight appears to up the ante, with new levels, weapons, gameplay mechanics, and pre-established boss characters having new tricks up their sleeves.

** The order of the Knights fought at the BossRush is random. You can face the bosses you have the most trouble in succession or Polar Knight (who has an instant kill maneuver) last. This is especially aggravating in NewGamePlus, where you only get a refill after every other encounter.

** king Knight will blow a horn and confetti will rain down on the sides of the screen. However it does little damage and is easily avoided.

It's been announced that Shovel Knight will be receiving his own Toys/{{amiibo}} figure, unlocking Co-Op on Wii U, Challenge stages on 3DS, and customizeable knights on both. This marks the first instance of an indie character receiving an amiibo. Thanks to Yacht Club Games publishing partnership with Creator/IntiCreates for the ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt: Striker Pack'' compilation re-release, using said amiibo will unlock an optional boss battle featuring Shovel Knight for ''Azure Striker Gunvolt 2''. In September 2016, it was announced that he'd make a cameo appearance as an NPC in ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee''.
