Rainbow Bridges are a platforming challenge in Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows, found only in the Stranded Ship and Tower of Fate: Ascent.

Game MechanicEdit

Rainbow bridges are floating platforms that stay still until being interacted with. It goes down gently when weighting down on it or ascend at the same rate if not standing on it. Striking the bridge from either side propels the platform forward and produces a temporary rainbow trail, remaining solid under steps until it dissipates. If the bridge runs through an enemy, that enemy will be killed. Plague Knight cannot strike it with bombs or Arcana.


  • The bridges are sculpted in the likeness of Hurlsvelgr from Specter of Torment.
  • These platforms are a reference to Bifröst, the rainbow bridge in Norse mythology that linked Earth and Asgard, the realm of gods.
