Pause is a music from the Shovel Knight soundtrack. This is the theme when pausing the game during the Battletoads encounter, exclusive to Microsoft and computer versions. This the recreation of the "Pause Beat" of Battletoads. It is labelled Music Sheet Sp.5 in Shovel of Hope. It can also be listened to in Sound Test after completing the campaign once in a PlayStation version of the game.

Music SheetEdit

Music Sheet Sp.5 can be unlocked after fighting the Battletoads in any of the Microsoft and computer versions and meeting the Bard at the Village.


"Stomp your feet! Clap your hands! Stomp your feet! Clap your hands!"


"Bard: I've sampled musical delicacies far and wide, but the only way to accomplish this was to poke at my upper register."


  • This is the only theme playing when pausing the game, which mirrors the sound design of the original Battletoads game.
