Music Sheet On and Off

Music Sheets (left: not collected, right: collected)

Music Sheets (also called Song Scrolls) are extra collectibles found scattered across the Valley in both Shovel of Hope and Plague of Shadows. They are usually hidden in secret areas or alcoves within the main Stages but sometimes act as rewards for completing bonus stages, with every Music Sheet redeemed unlocking a new song from the soundtrack. Similarly to the other Collectibles, once a Music Sheet is collected, it will be replaced with a grayed out version to mark its former location, and acquiring it again will not increase the total amount.

In Shovel of Hope, they act as the main and only collectible, and Shovel Knight can redeem them for 500 gold each to the Bard in the Village. The first five of these songs are already unlocked upon talking to the Bard, and the remaining 41 need to be found. Completing the Battletoads fight exclusive to Xbox One and PC versions will unlock 5 additional scrolls, while completing the Kratos fight (exclusive to the Sony version) will unlock 1 extra scroll. Each sheet has a description, plus the Bard has some colorful dialogue regarding each one of them. After beating the Tower of Fate: ???? stage or starting a New Game Plus, the Items Totals Menu becomes available. By pressing [SELECT] while hovering on a stage in the map, the menu is accessed revealing which Music Sheets are missing in said stage. Alternatively, accessing the stage and checking the Gear tab will also reveal if a sheet is missing in that area.

In Plague of Shadows, the 41 scrolls are a secondary collectible, coexisting together with Cipher Coins, and are instead known as Scrap Sheets. The one seeking them this time is Percy, who needs paper to continue his research in the Potionarium, and he will reward Plague Knight 500 gold for each and offer romantic advice of questionable usefulness. They are mostly in the same locations as the Music Sheets with the exception of the Village, Armor Outpost and Relics/Arcana stages. After certain amounts of Scrap Sheets have been redeemed, Percy will find a sheet with music scribbled on both sides and, deeming it useless, he will discard it into Oolong's head, unlocking a new song for him to play, for a total of 11 new tracks. Similarly to the Bard, Oolong has the first four songs already unlocked, and he has a description about each music track in his usual broken speech. Checking the Gear tab inside a stage will have the same effect as in Shovel of Hope. Also, the Items Totals Menu in Plague of Shadows can be accessed from the start, and it will reveal not only which Scrap Sheets are missing, but also the number of Cipher Coins collected.

In King of Cards, sheets don't make a physical appearance but are still seen as a paper during the ending of the campaign. Bard is seen dropping them off the airship, explaining how they got scattered across the Valley in the first place. Instead, Bard collects Merit Medals and gives 900 coins for each set of ten (he also gives 900 coins for the final five) and adds a poem about one of the area types of the game for good measure. Even if the King Knight has used the Medals for Heirlooms or Pies, Bard will count how many in total have been collected, not how many King Knight has at the moment.

The only campaign where the Music Sheets don't make an appearance in any shape or form is Specter of Torment, as no character fills the role of the Bard. Instead, after collecting every Curio, the extra Red Skulls can be similarly sold to Red for 500 gold each.

All the music tracks with their respective names can be found in the Sound Test unlocked upon beating each respective campaign.
