Excellent! The arena awaits! Best of luck!
Nyah hah hah hah!

The Passmaster is a Super Skeleton who runs the StreetPass Arena in the Nintendo 3DS version of Shovel of Hope.

Personality[edit | edit source]

The Passmaster is quite welcoming and friendly towards Shovel Knight, despite his appearance. He always refers to him as "warrior" and complements his performance in the arena regardless of how he did.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Passmaster guards the entrance to the arena. According to a human Adventurer outside the arena, it is the undefeated champion of the arena. In that regards, the Passmaster says that through consistent training, Shovel Knight may one day live up to its glory. He also offers Shovel Knight to view or record his Battle Ghost.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Talking to the Passmaster for the first time:

"Passmaster: You now stand within the StreetPass Arena! Here, we compete as battle ghosts using StreetPass!"
"Passmaster: Would you like to record a new battle ghost?"

"Begin!" without enabling streetpass first:

"Passmaster: Before we can begin, you must activate StreetPass."
"Passmaster: Activate StreetPass for this software?"


"Passmaster: Well then, warrior, it shall be enabled for you!"
"Passmaster: Wonderful! You can now participate in the StreetPass Arena!"
"Passmaster: Would you like to record a new battle ghost?"

"Begin" or "Record"

"Passmaster: Excellent! The arena awaits! Best of luck!
Nyah hah hah hah!

After recording:

"Passmaster: You completed your recording. Make sure to come back to battle other ghosts through StreetPass!"

Talking to the Passmaster without any StreetPass:

Sorry, warrior!
It appears you have no StreetPasses yet! But welcome back to the StreetPass Arena, all the same!
"Passmaster: Would you like to record a new battle ghost or view your last recording?"


Let's have a look at your amazing tactical performance, shall we?

After viewing:

"Passmaster: Well now, that was some quality entertainment!"

"Not now"

Gather your wits, and then return! The StreetPass Arena will be waiting!
Nyah hah hah hah!
