Amiibo manual 131-630x378

The relic selection screen.

Relics exclusive to the Custom Knight in Shovel Hope are unlocked by leveling a Shovel Knight amiibo through acquiring treasures. The original Relics can also be unlocked, although the exclusive ones can be seen as more powerful versions of the original ones.

These extra Relics function exactly like standard Relics, costing Magic to use and as such having a limited use rate. They be switched via the pause menu, the Wii U gamepad screen, the 3DS or Switch touch screen, and the "switch Relic" buttons.

List of Exclusive RelicsEdit

All the relics that are obtainable during the regular Shovel of Hope campaign are not listed here.

Relic Image Magic Description Usage
Bait Bomb
6 Toss into a sparkling pit and see what flies up! Just like the Arcana in Plague of Shadows.
Flareo Rod
12 Conjure a close-range cluster blast! Similar to the Flare Wand, but unleashes an explosion, similar to explosions caused by the Cluster Powder, but these are red instead of yellow.
Rising Dagger
6 Rise high into the air, skewering enemies in you way! Similar to the Propeller Dagger, only you rise upwards.
5 Soar through the air until somenthing blocks you path! Also similar to the Propeller Dagger, only you fly infinitely in one direction until Shovel Knight collides with an object.
Tow Anchor
4 Swing a massive anchor into the air and hold on tight! Similar to the Throwing Anchor, except you hold on to the anchor as it moves and, because of this, can't pass through walls.
Ghost Glove
3 Launch a flurry of far-reaching phantasmic fists! This relic looks similar to the Dust Knuckles. This relic launches a projectile in a similar way to the Flare Rod, but with a much shorter range and a faster rate.
Buzzsaw Boomerang
5 Throw this projectile to cut through enemies around you! A projectile that flies in a similar pattern to the projectiles launched by Cogslotters, going straigh ahead for then curve upward until it comes back to its origin. If thrown while in the air, the pattern of Buzzsaw Boomerang swaps trajectory, going upwards for then curve forward until it comes back to its origin.

5 Explode into a frenzied dash! Just like the Arcana in Plague of Shadows.
Shadow Knight
1 for each second Creates a shadow that fights and follows your every move! Similar to the Shadow Mirror, this releases a purple copy of Custom Knight that drain Magic constantly and remains a fixed distance in front of Shovel Knight. The Shadow jumps and Shovel Drops when Custom Knight does but, Custom Knight does not attack regularly, only the shadow does when this Relic is in use. The shadow also does not take damage and is not affected by gravity.
