The goatician is a character who resides in the village in Shovel of Hope. He is having trouble deciding on whether to upgrade magic or health and sells Meal Tickets to Shovel Knight to lower his options. The price increase with each ticket: 1000, 4500, and then 6000 gold. Afterward, he will claim that he no longer possesses any Meal Tickets because he has eaten the rest.
- "Goatician: Ah, decisions, decisions! Should I extend my Magic or Health? Or just eat a tin can? Why not buy my Meal Ticket and help narrow my options?"
- "Goatician: Ah, very well. I shall continue to weigh my options! A tactician such as myself should consider all avenues!"
