Farrels is a recurring character in Shovel Knight. He is the guarding knight of the Village, who halts Shovel Knight the first time he tries to enter to warn that weapons are forbidden inside. He does so also with Plague Knight but instead recognize the alchemist and forbids him passage. He is also briefly seen during the Specter of Torment ending credits, sleeping with a Memmec on his guard post just outside the village, and as such failing to spot Specter Knight carring an injuried Reize, and deposit him at the doorstep of Hedge Pupil's house.


As Shovel KnightEdit

"Farrels: Halt! No weapons! We have enough to worry about lately without everyone swinging swords around! Oh, ha ha, that's no weapon, just a shovel... You may enter then! And don't forget... Press [x] to talk to everyone!"
"Farrels: Cause no trouble, warrior!"

As Plague KnightEdit

When first arriving in the Village:

"Farrels: Halt! No weapons allowed! Wait a minute!! Lets just pretend I don't recognize you, and you go safely on your merry way. This doesn't have to get messy. And don't show your creepy bird face around here again, FREAK!'"

When talking to him:

"Farrels: Cause no trouble, warrior!"

When forcing passage into the Village:

"Farrels: Halt! Maybe you didn't hear me through that mask. We already had this conversation, pal. You're not supposed to be here. Now get lost before I lose my patience."


"Farrels: Look, buddy, don't make me call for backup. I'll do it. Just take a hike, all right?"

And again:

"Farrels: Okay, now you're just pullin' my pauldrons. I'm a busy guard, I don't have time for this. Can you just go?"


  • In the game's concept art, his full title is "Valiant Farrels". He is also described as a good natured semi-knight.
