Details[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Shovel is a reference to Shovel Knight, and how he sends back certain projectiles with his shovel.
  • The flavor text may be a reference to Physics and Kinetic Energy - The faster something is moving, the higher kinetic energy it possesses, and the deadlier it becomes if it hits something. It also refers to how the Shovel can be used as a lever to lift up (and apply force to) anything above it's surface, thus allowing it to dig.
    • However, in Dead Cells, projectile velocity does not affect it's damage values.
  • It may be a weapon themed after the Graveyard biome as the in-game Graveyard is where common villagers are buried, and the shovel is presumably used to dig their graves.
