The Villager in his default color palette.

The Villagers are minor characters in Shovel Knight. They usually roam the Village and Armor Outpost.

AppearanceEdit

Villagers appear as male humans with long hair and casual clothing.

StoryEdit

Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, Villagers can be found at the Vilage and Armor Outpost, giving adventuring tips. One of them appear at the Forest of Phasing, hinting at the use of the Phase Locket to pass the stage.

In the ending, a Villager can be seen among the Village's inhabitants celebrating the fall of the Tower of Fate.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

In Plague of Shadows, Villagers can be found at the Village but are scared off by Plague Knight. One of them flees aboard the Aerial Anvil after Plague Knight's invasion of the Armor outpost.

In the ending again, a Villager is among the crowd watching the Tower of Fate crumbling down.

Specter of TormentEdit

A Villager appears in the ending of Specter of Torment, fleeing from the village by the Lich Yard overrun by the dead.

DialogueEdit

A black clothed, black hair, light skin Villager walking in the Village:

"Villager: Pick up blue jars to restore your magic power!"

A red clothed, red hair, light skin Villager walking in the Village:

"Villager: I'm afraid I'm gonna run out of Health! I've gotta get a Meal Ticket!"

A black clothed, black hair, dark skin Villager walking in the Village:

"Villager: You know those glass checkpoints? You can break 'em for treasure... But if you do, they stop being checkpoints!"

A black clothed, black hair, light skin Villager standing at the Forest of Phasing:

"Villager: Yikes! Spikes! If only I could phase away to safety, I could cross and get so much treasure!"

A black clothed, black hair, light skin Villager walking in the Armor Outpost:

"Villager: Should I spend my money or save up? Is the risk of losing it all worth it?"

A blue clothed, blue hair, light skin Villager walking in the Armor Outpost:

"Villager: The Armorer will hold onto any armor you buy, and he'll let you swap 'em out whenever you want!"

TriviaEdit

  • The villager's model is named "Shopkeep Hank" in his concept art.[1] His sprite model is named "Pippin", which comes from the developers seeking to add "pippin" characters to the village areas to cheer on Shovel Knight.[2]
