All business, no pleasure, such a shame.

Propeller Knight is one of eight Knights of "The Order of No Quarter" who serves the Enchantress. He is the boss of the Flying Machine.

Official BioEdit

This aerodynamic ace commands the Enchantress' flying machine with the cocksure attitude of a sky pirate! With his Heli-Helmet, he can zoom short distances with ease. Shovel Knight encounters Propeller Knight on top of the aircraft as it zooms through the sky; earth fights against air in a true battle of elements!
  • Pros: Talented Fencer, Mechanical Heli-Helmet, Debonair!
  • Cons: Arrogance, Lightweight, Outrageous Accent!

Attacks Edit

Propeller Knight has several different attacks. He will fly across the stage, make quick lunges with his sword, use his helmet to launch you into the air (and then attempt to impale you on his rapier on the way down), or try to blow you into the holes at the edge of the stage. After lowering his health, he will call in an airship to attack you. They first launch bombs at you, which he will then try to blow at you. You can knock the bombs into Propeller Knight, doing heavy damage. Upon losing more health, Propeller Knight will command the airship to launch two large cannonballs at the stage, breaking the platform into three segments and making positioning markedly more difficult.


As Shovel Knight:

"Propeller Knight: Ahh, my petite blue friend. The sunset, she is beautiful, no?"
"Shovel Knight: Get down here and face me, you gyroscopic jester!"
"Propeller Knight: Oh! So rude! My crew, they were not hospitable? My ship, it was not magnificent?"
"Shovel Knight: I'm not here to be entertained! I must reach the Tower of Fate!"
"Propeller Knight: All business, no pleasure, such a shame. Very well, then! En garde!"

As Plague Knight:

"Plague Knight: They let airheads have airships? Hee hee, ha ha ha! Come down here, I need to borrow something!"
"Propeller Knight: How pedestrian! I was expecting the grand entrance! Substance over style, always with you scientists. So, I heard the most delicious rumor - you envy my suave, daring nature, do you? Get in line!"
"Plague Knight: Haha, don't flatter yourself, flyboy! Your essence is the teensiest part of my plan!"
"Propeller Knight: My essence can't be taken from me! But if you ask nicely, I'd consider giving you flying lessons! Of course, my pernicious pupil... I'll have to charge!"

As Specter Knight:

"Propeller Knight: Oh hoh hoh! Such tattered robes! Are you here to join the galley crew, then? Magnificent!"
"Specter Knight: On the contrary, you shall join us. An alliance of elite knights will surely compliment your carefree crew. As the captain of the Enchantress's flagship, the skies will belong to your rivals no more."
"Propeller Knight: Rivals? Me?! NEVER! I'll cast you overboard! Hope that your blade is better honed than your sense of style. EN GARDE!"
