Shield Knight
Weapon Asymmetric Shields

You knew I was still there, even though it seemed hopeless. You never gave up on me!

Shield Knight is one of the main characters of Shovel Knight and one of many Knights that inhabit its world. She is Shovel Knight's partner and love interest.

Official BioEdit

Sometimes the best offense is a good defense, and Shield Knight knows it. Wielding a pair of Asymmetrical Shields, she deflects both melee and projectile attacks easily before getting into range and crushing her foes! For years, Shield Knight and Shovel Knight were inseparable partners in adventuring; with their expert use of unconventional weapons, they worked as one. Now, Shield Knight’s fate is unknown, but Shovel Knight’s goal is clear: he must journey to find Shield Knight, his lost beloved.

Pros: Confident, Powerful, and Tenacious

Cons: Occasional Recklessness

Dialogue Edit

Immediately after being freed from Enchantress:Edit

"Shield Knight: ...You caught me."
"Shovel Knight: If only I had known, I would have come sooner!"
"Shield Knight: You knew I was still there, even though it seemed hopeless. You never gave up on me!"
"Shovel Knight: I will NEVER give up on you. I will follow you to the end of the world."
"Shield Knight: It appears that maybe you have."
"Shovel Knight: What's happening!?"
"Shield Knight: Oh, no... When the amulet shattered, the magic within it was released! It's already gathering. It will escape and wreak havoc on everything..."
"Shovel Knight: Unless we stop it."
"Shield Knight: Unless we stop it! We can destroy it for good, here and now!"
"Shovel Knight: But we're both weak from battle!"
"Shield Knight: I've never been more ready. Come on, Shovel Knight, let's fight together, like old times! Now... stay close to me!"

After defeating the Remnant of Fate: Edit

"Shield Knight: It's over, Shovel Knight. This place is falling apart. We have to get out of here!"
"Shovel Knight: Let's go! I know a route that"
(Shovel Knight gets blasted by a stream of energy from the dying Remnant of Fate's mouth. As Shield Knight jumps up and blocks the energy stream, Black Knight arrives.)
"Black Knight: Shield Knight!"
"Shield Knight: Black Knight, thank goodness you're here! Shovel Knight is wounded, take him and get outside!"
"Black Knight: NO!! I can't leave you behind! How will you escape?"
"Shield Knight: This magic is too strong! I... can't... hold out... much longer..."
"Black Knight: RUN! You can't deflect it, it will tear you apart!"
"Shield Knight: I'm... so happy... I got to see you both... one last time..."
"Black Knight: SHIELD KNIGHT!!!"


Trivia Edit

  • She is the only named female knight.
  • She and Polar Knight are the only knights whose helmets don't cover most of their faces.
