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

Later on, while Shovel Knight was venturing in the Tower of Fate, he eventually came across Treasure 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 Treasure Knight. In the end, Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight knights, including Treasure Knight. After Shovel Knight managed to defeat all eight members of The Order of No Quarter, Treasure 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 Treasure 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, Treasure Knight returned to the Iron Whale. There, he had to give away all the gold and treasure he acquired to the people, much to his dismay.
