"Butt Mode" is a game mode that can be accessed by typing in X&BUTT or WSWWAEAW, a cheat code, as your name. Afterwards, you will have to rename yourself something else that isn't another cheat code, as you can only enter one cheat code per file. Upon doing so, your save file will have a dark blue pumpkin on the left side of the picture of the character (Shovel, Plague, or Specter). The pumpkin is a reminder that means:
- You don't benefit aside from laughs.
- Feats cannot be obtained for that file.
- You inputted a Cheat Code. Cheater, cheater, dark blue pumpkin eater!
"Butt Mode" changes none of the gameplay nor the story. Although it does change one thing; by that, it changes several dialogue words used repeatedly and replaces them with "butt", including:
Every instance of text with those words will be replaced, except in your inventory.
Yes, you read that right, Shovel Knight is called "Butt Butt".
