|“||You're out of your depth, spelunker. Are you lost?||”|
Mole Knight... the shovel may rule the confines of man-made gardens, but in the wild, the titan of tunneling is the mole! Mole Knight embraces this truth wholeheartedly. With his modified drop-forged armored claws, he mockingly tears through the earth with brute strength! Mole Knight calls the subterranean Lost City his home... an ancient abandoned metropolis. Shovel Knight must pass through the Lost City, but chances are slim he won’t be challenged to see who is truly the master of digging.
- Pros: Great eyesight, shrewd, high endurance
- Cons: Obsessive personality, gets sweaty in armor
Mole Knight is a very high-mobility boss. It is difficult to do much damage to him in one go. When the fight begins, he will shoot out of the walls at high speed in an attempt to ram into you. The best thing to do in this phase is to charge up your Shovel, and attack him with it when he comes towards you, as this will negate his attack and damage him at the same time. After this, he will usually dig up blocks to launch at you. If you remain on top of him and Shovel Drop onto him, this is a good time to hit him, as he is stationary. After doing some damage to him, he will burrow underground and hide under one of four dirt piles. It is easy to find which one Mole Knight is under, as his visor will be peeking out. Digging this pile up stuns him for a short time, but watch out as a mole enemy is hiding under another pile and will damage you. After he emerges from the ground, he will call down magma to cover him, and he launches balls of magma outward randomly. He is invincible while this attack goes on, so stay away from him and try to dodge the balls of magma.You can, however, hit some of the balls of magma back at him for a little bit of damage.
As Shovel Knight:
- "Mole Knight: You're out of your depth, spelunker. Are you lost?"
- "Shovel Knight: These ruins belong to the ages, Mole Knight!"
- "Mole Knight: They're mine now! But more importantly, is that your digging implement? HA HA HA HA HA! HA!!! I'm astonished you made it ten feet down here with that rusty trinket! I WILL BURY YOU!"
As Plague Knight:
- "Mole Knight: You've gotta be kidding me. You're the demolitions expert? You're a day late! Don't just stand there! Start Blasting! Hop to it!"
- "Plague Knight: Hee hee, I'm afraid i'm not exactly here to help with your dig... but... I'm certainly here for demolitions! Hee hee hahaha! Boooooom!"
- "Mole Knight: I should have known you were just gonna clown around, can't let that happen on my watch!"
