I magically see all of your acts, come back again for more useful facts!
Grandma Swamp is a minor character in Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. 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 in the library 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.

King of CardsEdit

In King of Cards, Grandma Swamp can be summoned once King Knight rings the bell on the lower level of the Glidewing. She appears on a flying broom, and tells King Knight his statistics for both his adventure and Joustus career, but, like her other appearances, angrily corrects him once he mistakes her for a witch.
