I magically see all of your acts, come back again for more useful facts!

Grandma Swamp is a minor character in Shovel Knight. She can be found in each campaign to provide the protagonists their miscellaneous statistics, such as their current playtime.


Shovel of HopeEdit

In Shovel of Hope, Grandma Swamp can be found at the Juice Bar under the Village and will tell Shovel Knight his trivial stats. Shovel Knight mistakes her for a witch.

Plague of ShadowsEdit

Grandma Swamp does not appear directly in Plague of Shadows. Instead, she writes Plague Knight letters containing his miscellaneous statistics. They can be read by talking to the Mail Minion at the Potionarium. The minion always concludes that she is probably a witch.

Specter of TormentEdit

In Specter of Torment, Grandma Swamp appears in the reflection of the Scrying Glass, located above the Magic Mirror room. She tells Specter Knight his statistics, but corrects him angrily when he mistakes her for a magic mirror when expressing his thanks.


Shovel of HopeEdit

"Grandma Swamp: Double, trouble, soil and shovel. My third eye knows your useless info! EXCAVATIO! The number of dig piles you've dug is [x]! AURUM INFINIOSA! The amount of gold you've collected is [x]! THANATO REFUTATUM! The number of times you've fallen in battle is [x]! TEMPORUM PERPETUA! The total time you've spent adventuring is [x]:[x]:[x]! I magically see all of your acts, come back again for more useful facts!"
"Shovel Knight: Thanks for helping me, kindly witch!"
"Grandma Swamp: I'M NOT A WITCH!"

Specter of TormentEdit

"Scrying Glass: Brine, blight and fires bright. Your feats are laid bare to my all-knowing sight!. PARAPETIO ASCENSIUS! [x] is the number of walls you've scaled! MORBIDUM RETRONA! The number of times you've fallen in battle is [x]! CHRONOLOGICO! The total time you've spent adventuring is [x]:[x]:[x]! INCISIUM ANTECEDUM! The number of Dash Slashes you've done is [x]!"
"Specter Knight: Clearly, this is powerful sorcery... Thank you, bewitched mirror."
"Grandma Swamp: I'M NOT A MIRROR!"


  • The Mail Minion's ability to read Grandma Swamp's letters was not originally in Plague of Shadows and was only added in version 2.2 of the game.
