The Gatherer in her default color palette.

Gatherers are minor characters in Shovel Knight. They usually walk around the Village and Armor Outpost.

AppearanceEdit

Gatherers appear as short females carrying large baskets of mushrooms.

StoryEdit

Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, Gatherers are walking around the Village and Armor Outpost.

A Gatherer appears in the ending with the rest of the Village, watching the end of the Tower of Fate.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

In Plague of Shadows, Gatherers can be found at the Village but are scared off by Plague Knight. One of them flees aboard the Aerial Anvil after Plague Knight's invasion of the Armor outpost.

In the ending again, a Villager is among the crowd watching the Tower of Fate crumbling down.

Specter of TormentEdit

A Gatherer appears in the ending of Specter of Torment, fleeing from the Armor Outpost upon its attack by the Enchantress and her minions.

DialogueEdit

A blue clothed, blond hair, light skin Gatherer walking in the Village:

"Gatherer: Our old village is overrun with the undead, and Specter Knight! We barely made it out in time!"

An orange clothed, brown hair, light skin Gatherer walking in the Village:

"Gatherer: Beware of a lich calling himself the Super Skeleton. His jumping attacks are ferocious!"

A green clothed, red hair, light skin Gatherer walking in the Village:

"Gatherer: I just love living in a village. It's the best!"

A green clothed, red hair, dark skin Gatherer walking in the Village:

"Gatherer: Please save us from the Enchantress! WAHHHHHH!"

A green clothed, red hair, light skin Gatherer walking in the Village:

"Gatherer: I told the Gastronomer he's outside my delivery area, but did he listen? No!"

TriviaEdit

  • In their original concept art, Gatherers are fuly named "Mushroom gatherer".[1] Their sprite model is simply named "Mushroom".
  • Gatherers have an unique animation where they bounce their mushrooms up and down in their basket. That animation is only played in the endings of Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows. This is also the only time those mushrooms can be seen.
