Propeller Rats are small airborne enemies that look like a brown rat with a little propeller strapped to its back. They hover slowly toward Shovel Knight, and are often positioned so that the player can Shovel Drop them to get to hard to reach places.
Scissors Propeller Rat Edit
This is a version of the propeller rat exclusive to the Xbox One version of Shovel Knight, and can be found only in the Battletoads boss fight, trying cut Shovel Knight's ropes in the first portion, or to simply hurt him.
Wall Carrier Propeller Rat Edit
This is also a propeller rat exclusive to the Xbox One, which carries small red walls, that can be dropped at the end of the path Shovel Knight is driving on. The short walls can be difficult to avoid alongside tall walls, Birders, and ramps.
