Trickery? Ha! The fruits of my research are no mere trick!
~ Plague Knight
Plague Knight is a minor antagonist in the Indie video game; Shovel Knight. He works for the Enchantress as one of the eight members of the Order of No Quarter. Shovel Knight encounters Plague Knight at the end of the Explodatorium.


When the Enchantress was starting her reign of terror, she created a small team of eight knights known as the Order of No Quarter. One of the members was Plague Knight. Shovel Knight had to venture toward various areas to stop the Order.

While Shovel Knight was venturing towards the end of the Explodatorium, he eventually came across Plague Knight. Both Shovel Knight and Plague Knight fought each other, and Plague Knight ended up losing to Shovel Knight.

Later on, while Shovel Knight was venturing in the Tower of Fate, he eventually came across Plague Knight, as well as the other members of the Order of No Quarter he defeated. Shovel Knight had to endure a Boss-Rush with all the knights, including Plague Knight. In the end, Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight knights, including Plague Knight. After Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight members of The Order of No Quarter, Plague Knight and the other members are hanging on the edge of the tower for dear life. Shovel Knight can choose whether to save them or leave them to die.

If Plague Knight and the others were rescued by Shovel Knight, some of them ended up paying for their consequences. After Shovel Knight and Shield Knight defeated The Enchantress, Plague Knight returned to the Explodatorium. There, he became a teacher for advance potions.

  • He will be the first playable villain.
