Burners are a platforming challenge in Shovel Knight found primarily in the Explodatorium. They appear as a sequence of small light blue bowls that emit tall flames a short time after Shovel Knight steps on them. They are timed so that Shovel Knight can avoid the flames by running continuously. Other varieties of burners are the same color but emit flames on a cycle. Touching the flames with damage Shovel Knight and knock him back, often into a pit.
