|“||Lose will and darkness instead of perishing in pits and spikes! Drop less gold when you fall in battle.||”|
The Cloak of Clemency is the cheapest Cloak Specter Knight can purchase, with a 3500 gold price. It not only reduces the quantity of gold dropped upon death, but also has the unique ability to make pits and spikes not an instant kill. Instead, the Cloak teleports Specter Knight to the last solid ground he stepped on while making him temporarily invincible, at the cost of taking away four bubbles of Will and 40 units of Darkness in the process.
However, if Specter Knight doesn't have enough Will and Darkness to compensate with, the spikes and pits will kill him instantly.
- Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, and King Knight all have their own versions of the Cloak of Clemency, in the form of the Final Guard, the Treasure Trappings, and the Rodent Regalia respectively; unlike the other three, though, the Final Guard has no extra effects besides reducing the amount of gold lost upon death.
- The color palette of this Cloak closely resembles the overall color scheme of the Plague Minions.
